A slow start, a shocking disturbance, and a big day

I was distributing at Balboa Park in San Diego. Well, I should say I was trying. It was tough: one book in the first hour. I decided to move to another spot, because sometimes a change in place and atmosphere brings about a positive result. After about fifteen minutes a madman came into my new sacrificial arena. He was going all around the area trying to fight people: throwing chairs, shouting, threatening. He came to my table and...

Oops, sorry!

I had just parked my sankirtan vehicle when a young man opened the passenger door of the car and started talking to me. I looked at him a little surprised. He was shocked. He had gotten into the wrong car! His wife was sitting in the car next to mine, and it looked just like my car. He apologized and explained why he had made the mistake. I showed him the Bhagavad-gita, and he happily gave a donation. There are so many ways that Lord...
