College customers: mystified and amazed

While I was distributing at Moor Park College, a lady came to my table and was happy to see the Bhagavad Gita. Then she started looking at other books. I asked her whether she already had the Gita, and she did. I asked how she got. She said, “I bought a car, and the book was in the car when I bought it. It was the most inspiring book I ever read. And what’s amazing is that IT came to me.” There’s a saying in...
