Revolution in a readers life
Please accept my humble obeisances, all glories to Srila Prabhupada!
I came across your website recently and was really inspired. I am not a very voracious book distributer but have a small story to tell.
In my engineering days in Bangalore, I was reading Bhagavad-gita in my class, and since the lecturer was absent my fellow classmates were asking me questions. This went on for two hours, and then I promised to give them some books the next day.
The next day when I was giving them books, another classmate who was not in the previous day's discussion saw the books. Being curious, he asked for one, and I gave him "Civilization & Transcendence."
In a few days his life transformed. He was mentioning his distaste for movies, mundane music and prajalpa. Within few months he was chanting sixteen rounds. Recently, after being placed in a company he donated Indian rupees 5000/- to the temple and continues to remain connected.
I could see how Srila Prabhupada books are not ordinary mundane literature but "meant to bring about a revolution in the life of the misdirected civilization."
