Bringing back our wandering minds
Book distribution is like japa. Sometimes when we chant, we think of other things. Inattentive japa sometimes happens. Therefore Krsna says, “From wherever the mind wanders due to its flickering and unsteady nature, one should bring it back under the control of the self.” Similarly, when we distribute books, we sometimes think of other things, as is the mind’s nature. Or we get distracted from the mission of giving the mercy of Krsna to others because of seeing or thinking of things that are causes of distraction, such as attractive women, attachment to the results, and on.
Just as we have to bring the mind back and focus on the name in japa, we also have to bring the mind back to book distribution and focus on our purpose of helping the conditioned souls and pleasing Krsna.
