One who knows

We were going to Kumbha Mela on rikshas and trying to reach ISKCON's tents. Our riksha driver thought that many of the tents were the ISKCON tents, so he was driving us all around. It was already after midnight but we could not find the ISKCON tents. Since we were tired and sleepy, we stopped by some tent in which the people there allowed us to stay overnight. The party was about to begin. A few hours later, I was awakened by a...

Emptying a trolly full of books started with an emotional exchange

In Vysoke Myto, a small city in eastern Czech Republic, I was alone, having been dropped off in the morning by my sankirtana partner.

So alone in the small city with a trolly full of Srila Prabhupada’s books, I was looking forward to a new adventure. In the morning, the streets were nearly empty, so I visited some shops.

He gave a generous donation and on top of that, he gave me a bouquet of flowers. He expressed his interest in visiting the ISKCON farm, New Govardhana, and said he would come for the Sunday feast. I was happy to meet such a favorable person and pleased that he gave me...

Some appreciation…

This is a letter sent to us by Indradyumna Swami: Dear Sir, Yesterday my family and I attended your event, the Festival of India, in Mielno. It was a wonderful experience. I read about Lord Krishna as a teenager when one day, by chance, I came across a book called, “The Science of Self Realization” in a local library. I was only 10 years old at the time and it wasn’t easy reading. Even today I am still trying to...
