Christians Get the Mercy
While distributing at the Los Angeles airport I approached a man and handed him the Bhagavad-gita.
"I've heard of this. I sponsor Christian preachers going to India to preach to Hindus about Christianity," he said.
I replied, "Oh, really. Well, this book will give you some idea of the beliefs of the Hindus. Although this is the most important book of India and the Hindus, it is different than Hinduism. Hinduism is very confusing. As you know, there are many gods, and in Hinduism it's hard to understand who is the Supreme God or if there is a Supreme God. But the Bhagavad-gita very strongly teaches monotheism and that all other gods are either incarnations or demigods–like angels. In offering you this book we're not trying to change your beliefs. But there is always more to learn.
"This should be interesting. Could I give you something for this?
He gave a nice donation, and I hope he'll have a change of heart.
A couple of days later a similar incident took place. I handed a Bhagavad-gita to a man and explained the contents to him. He said he was a Christian and that this book conflicted with his beliefs. I asked him what it was I had said that conflicted with his beliefs.
"Karma," he said.
I said, "You know the statement in the Bible, 'As you sow, so you reap'?"
"Yes, I've heard that."
"Well, that's precisely what karma is: we get what we deserve. So please keep this with you. We just ask for a donation."
He also received the mercy of Lord Sri Krsna.
