Lucy got the mercy

While in Alachua, I gave a Bhagavatam class about book distribution. A Vaisnavi, Guru Prasad dd, commented on an experience she had distributing books. She was distributing at Dallas airport without much success, but she was still happily approaching people. A lady sitting nearby was watching and finally walked up to her and asked what she was doing. This lady was shown the books, and she was surprised that people were not interested,...

When I go out against all odds, Krishna reciprocates even more

I was flooded with things to do at the temple on Sunday, here in Atlanta, but I forced myself to go out to distribute books for a couple of hours.

I've been praying every day for some guidance in my spiritual life. My hairs are standing on end as you're showing me this book. Is the book as amazing as the pictures you're showing me?" I said, "More amazing." He said, "I want to learn...

The Supersoul does it again!

Hare Krishna! Recently I was distributing books door to door in Gisborne, New Zealand. I knocked on one door and had the great fortune to meet Caleb, a very pleasant middle aged gentleman and committed Christian. As a successful musician, one of the ways he serves is to glorify God though music at Christian gatherings all around the world. Still, I could understand from his respectful and friendly demeanor that he was open to...
