Dear Book Distribution Seminar, Please accept my humble obeisances! All glories to Srila Prabhupada! The following story took place some time back but it can maybe still be used The day was Saturday and we were on the Plaza in Kansas City. As we approached one group of men the thought came to mind that they were riding some bus.

Excerpt from an interview with His Grace HG Vaisesika Prabhu

Excerpt from an interview with His Grace Vaisesika Prabhu, on 11-14-2002 in Vrindavan Dhama: Question: How do we overcome the inhibitions about getting out there to distribute the books?
