It wasn’t your time…
I was distributing in Germany and approached a man, introducing myself as a monk. I mentioned karma and reincarnation.
He asked, “You are a monk? I’ll tell you what. I have experienced something incredible. Let me tell you what happened to me. I had some serious health problems and died — legally dead. My brain was not provided with oxygen for so long that according to conventional medicine it was not possible to survive.
What happened during that time was that I had a near death experience. I saw myself leaving the body. Then I heard voices say, “It’s not yet time for you to go.” And I came back to life. The doctors called it a wonder and were completely shocked.
I immediately responded, “It wasn’t your time, because you’re meant to get this book!” I was pointing to the Bhagavad-gita.
He said, “Okay, I will give it a trial.” He gave a nice donation to find out why he stayed alive.
