The Perfection of Yoga

By Vijaya Dasa Recently I visited the San Diego temple and was glad to see a couple of new sankirtan devotees distributing books. One of them was Bhakta Bronson. I asked him how he became a devotee, and he said he had received “The Perfection of Yoga” from Radhanatha Dasa while in a store parking lot. I was so pleased to hear this.

Book Distribution in my Home Town

By Vasudeva Datta das Dear Prabhus, Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada! Recently we were doing sankirtan in my hometown in Slovenia. Before going there I had to go through a strenuous purification of my mind. And my false ego was flipping out: “What will happen when you will meet this relative and that professor or exgirlfriend?! How will all these people react when they see you in this strange...
