Sandy gets the mercy
Mahotsaha Prabhu recalls:
Really nice lady named Sandy from Baltimore. She saw us walking into a grocery store with some books in our hands and came up to ask if she could get a few of them! She’s a kundalini yoga instructor and likes to read spiritual books so we told her we’ll meet her outside with some very special books! We went to the car, took a “Srimad Bhagavatam” set out and showed her the set when she came out to meet us! It turns out her husband received a “Bhagavad Gita as it is” from devotees in the 1970’s and she’s also read it. I showed her verse 1.1.2 of the Bhagavatam: “Completely rejecting all religious activities which are materially motivated, this Bhāgavata Purāṇa propounds the highest truth, which is understandable by those devotees who are fully pure in heart. The highest truth is reality distinguished from illusion for the welfare of all….”
I explained how my Gurumaharaja HH Bhakti Vikasa swami gave me an instruction to distribute these Bhagavatam sets in the streets to the general public and how it would revolutionize spiritual book distribution. I was telling her that all people need this knowledge especially someone as spiritually inclined as she is plus her husband would definitely appreciate getting the opportunity to also read them. It took some convincing but she finally agreed to take the set home with her for the holidays!
