Surprise

This story was told to me by Gopal Hari das of Boise Idaho where I was distributing books at the University campus. In Russia there was a young boy thirteen years old who some how received one of Srila Prabhupada and became so attracted to the philosophy that he went to the temple and loved everything. The devotees gave him beads and more books. He gradually became more interested and eventually became a devotee. But there was a...

A Little help from our friends

Pocatello, Idaho While distributing at Idaho State University I was speaking to one student about the Bhagavad Gita, while I was speaking to him a lady came up to us after seeing the Bhagavad Gita and told the student, "This is a great book, my Grandfather read it because Thoreau and Emerson whom my Grandfather had a great deal of respect for, had so much appreciation for it.

Krsna Balarama Prabhu in Moscow

During the last few days, I had the good fortune of going out on book distribution in the cold streets and subways of Moscow with the number one book distributor in the entire world, namely his Grace Krsna Balarama Prabhu. Krsna Balarama Prabhu is quiet, reserved, and un-assuming, especially with devotees. By his meek behavior, nobody could recognize him as being a maharathi of Sankirtana. However, when he carries his pile of twenty...

I had this experience last week, while doing book distribution in Broome, a small tourist town up in the isolated north-west of Australia. While going door-to-door with Srila...
