I continue to distribute books. Even though the military is trying to catch and recruit all young men, Krsna protects me.

I walk along the main street, and of course I look around, but I continue to offer books. The people react very well and take books. Krishna protects me from the military.

On a recent Saturday, I was at a big market from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., and people took 115 books. Then I went and dined at Food for Life and continued distributing until 6 p.m. The people took another 107 books. They took 222 books in a day. It was an amazing and unforgettable experience — sankirtana samadhi.

On July 15, I remembered that on the same day in 2018, Niranjana Swami  did harinama on a tour with brahmacaris right on the same street where I have been distributing books every day for the last four months. These were interesting memories. Here is a seventeen-minute video showing that harinam:
