Fire in Brasil!!!!

Dear Devotees! Pamho, agtSP I have very very good news from Brasil!! I´m living in Sao Paulo, the 3rd biggest city of the world with 24 million people.

Now in Sao Paulo, after my Gurumaharaja (HH Bhakti Tirtha Swami) give me enthusiasm to do Book...

What Better way to spend our time

After our enlivening six week college tour in the Northwestern United States Jaya Gauranga das and myself decided we would leave Salt Lake City after a half-day of book distribution and then go to Las Vegas (Sin City) spend the night and then go back to LA. This would break the trip in half so that we wouldn't have to drive as much on one stretch. As we entered Las Vegas we decided to take an exit where we could find a place to...

Coming to Krsna in Russia

While in Moscow, I heard of some interesting ways devotees had come to Krsna. One young man was taking LSD and mushrooms and then started to ask the big questions about life.

He gradually joined, but not exactly alone: He was the best skateboarder in Europe, and he's still famous. Now he's a full time book...

So I asked...

Inspired by Paramatma

While distributing books in the city center in Perth, Australia, I approached a woman sitting on the lawns, perhaps getting a little breather from busy office life. I enquired if she was interested in books on yoga and meditation, but she denied. Thanking her, I continued on with my service, talking with several passers-by and showing them our books – some of them giving a donation and taking them. This continued for the next...

After a Long Time Three Meaningful Encounters

After a long time of not being active in book distribution I was nervous, hesitant, and even a bit afraid to approach people. "Krishna conciousness is so simple, you might just miss it." With that statement by Srila Prabhupada (related by Tribhuvanath Prabhu) in my mind, I just started. An elderly man with a Nepal T-shirt came by. "You've visited Nepal?" i asked. He was a retired, thoughtful geologist, who...
