From confusion to Srimad Bhagavatam
After receiving a super inspiring, mercy-filled email from His Holiness Giriraj Swami, encouraging book distribution, we went out on books to cash in on the mercy.
A nice young engineer approached our book table with many questions. He asked, “I’m confused in life, even though I’m very successful materially, so please recommend a book that will help me.”
I said, “Any of these books will help. I especially recommend “Hiding in Unnatural Happiness” and Bhagavad-gita. He took the books and donated $100.
I thought to myself, “Hang on a sec. This person is very special. He is brutally honest to admit that he is confused, and he is very generous. I can’t let him get away just with two books”.
So I smiled and asked him, “How confused are you?”
He again humbly admitted, “Life is super confusing, and I have a lot of questions.“
So I said, “Actually, in that case I highly recommend Bhagavat Purana.“
I showed him the attractive eighteen volumes of Bhagavatam and explained its history and then requested him to pay the difference and take the set home with him. He gladly agreed.
His Holiness Giriraj Swami, ki jaya! Srila Prabhupada, ki jaya!
