Thomas Merton distributes Prabhupada’s book…

Haribol prabhus, Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada. Here is a little story from our book distribution efforts so far this month. It was late morning, before any of the lunch hour crowd hit the street. I stopped an older lady who was walking by herself. I asked her if she liked to read. She was friendly, but said she was not interested because she was Catholic. "My parents are also Catholic",...

Lord Caitanya’s Movement – Simply Amazing!

We give books to anyone and everyone! We give books to devout people, we give books to butchers, we give books to soldiers in Iraq. We give books everywhere!

He had the box of books in front of his belly and was running and running. As...

The Glorious Cell Phones

I stopped two young Chinese ladies which is something I usually do not do. We were having a good exchange but still they didn't seem so interested in the books. Then all of a sudden the cell-phone of one of them rang. She answers and goes a little distance from us. In my mind I was thinking: "That's it! My sale is finished now." But still I struggled to maintain a conversation with the one that was not on the phone....

Guru Krpa

Dear Maharajas, Prabhus, and Matajis, Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada! Guru-krpa is the nectar that we are all aspiring for: yasya prasadad bhagavat-prasado, yasyaprasadan na gatih gato 'pi. Recently I experienced a small fraction of the import of this. Here in Los Angeles we began the Prabhupada marathon on the first of December, so Svavasa Prabhu has been encouraging us to increase our...
