A young lady takes three sets (SB, CC, SPL)!

She walked by and left a dollar on our book table. I asked her why she did that. She responded, “Because you’re doing a great thing out here.” I then began to speak to her, to give her more books. All of a sudden she said, “Wait, you’re Ananda right?” I never met her ever before, but she listens to our classes on YouTube on the Los Angeles ISKCON page. She’s met book distributors once before and was hoping to meet us somewhere again....

Lots of the devotees don’t even have cars. Some do, so they drive out of the country. Some are walking in the cold with only the clothes on their backs. Some are staying in temples that have no electricity, and it’s as cold inside as it is outside. They...
