Some nice book distribution realizations from an ISKCON youth

Hare Krishna, dear devotees! My name is Radha, I’m 19 years old and I am a student in my final year at Sri Mayapur International School. I want to share with you my incredible experience of book distribution in London this summer. I hope that it will please the senior devotees and reassure them that book distribution is still alive and well. And I hope it will encourage all the devotees of my age to give it a try. Here is how it...

Mercy makes the blind see

While I was distributing books at a university in California, a blind lady came to me and said, "I overheard you saying something about spirituality, what do you have?"

If you're interested in spirituality, then this is the book for...

I'm finding that more and more Muslims...

Book Distribution on the Azores islands

For a couple of months every year, for the last ten years or so, I've visited the Azores islands, an autonomous region of Portugal, in the mid-Atlantic. On one of the islands, where just five hundred inhabitants live, I was giving out books one day. A lady who stopped to talk began to take something from her purse, which I thought might be an offical government document identifying her, and that she'd ask me to stop my book...
