A very appreciative lady

Arab Man Coming Back for Books Again and AgainWe were just leaving the temple with Dayal Nitai Prabhu (DNP) and Nitai Caran Prabhu (NCP), and were in the train going to Paris. As usual I had some books in my hand. A lady sits next to me, and I can see that she is trying to read the title of the first book of the stack. So I ask her: “Are you trying to read the title of my book? It is Bhagavad-gita.”

She then tells me that she is into spirituality. I tell her that this book is not a book of a certain religion, but is rather a book on spirituality. I explain her that we can change our religion whenever we decide, but that we cannot change what we are: an eternal spiritual soul.

She is so happy with what I say, and she gives me a 10. I saw that she was a special lady so I decide to give her all the small books that I had (Perfection of Yoga, Beyond Birth and Death, etc.)

She tells me that she chants OM, and that she wants to do yoga.

I told her: “Do you know that OM is actually Krishna in the form of sound? It is explained in this book! I can see that Krishna has had an eye on you for quite a long time now! And you want to begin yoga? Then please chant this mantra!”

And I show her the maha-mantra on my phone. After she recited the mantra, I told her: “Just see! you just began Yoga and you just attained the perfection of it!”

I also gave her the little magazine on Srila Prabhupada. When she saw him she said: “When I look at him I know that it is because of people like him that we can still live on earth and that everything does not collapse.”

I was amazed with what I heard, so I started to glorify Srila Prabhupada and she was so happy! She asked so many interesting questions and it was pure nectar to answer.

Prabhupada: Whatever you have learned from Krsna, from your guru, just vomit it, that’s all. There is no need of becoming very expert. Simply repeat whatever you learned, that’s all.

I always keep this quote in my mind when I preach.

When we had to leave the train, I gave her my number and she told me that she will come to the temple.

In the evening she sent me a message telling me that she would come on Wednesday!

Hare Krishna!
Please distribute books!
