Another time bomb went off
While I was visiting Durban I asked a brahmacari book distributor, Krsna Caitanya Prabhu, how he joined.
He said, “In the early 2000s some devotees visited the house where my family and I lived. They distributed a Bhagavad Gita to my sister and she put it in a desk drawer, and it sat there for three years. One day, when I returned from work, exhausted and tired of my job, for some reason (Krishna's inspiration) I opened the drawer and saw the Gita. It looked interesting, so I picked it up and started reading. It made a lot of sense, so I kept reading. Then I found out about the temple from the address list. The devotees were quite nice, as was the philosophy. I started chanting, and after three years of reading and chanting I joined the temple, but not alone! My younger brother also took an interest and joined about the same time, then my sister joined along with my father and mother. The whole family joined Krishna’s bigger family.”
