Senior devotees helped me, I was praying to scriptures, to Prabhupada, and they made me their instrument. I felt that it was not me who distributes books.

Dear Prabhus and Maharajas, Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada! This last week in the LA airport it had been really tough for me. For some reason the rest of the sankirtana team was doing well, but I was really struggling. Every day kept getting more and more difficult until Saturday came. On Saturday nobody would even talk to me. I was getting very frustrated and felt miserable. I was having the...
