Something to learn from

Dear Prabhus, Please accept my humble obeisances, all glories to Srila Prabhupada. I just received some good news from Hrdaya Caitanya Prabhu about Bhakta Steve. He is now conscious and the doctors said he'll be out of intensive-care soon. I think there is something that we can all learn from this incident with Bhakta Steve. This material world as we all know is a dangerous place, therefore we should be more cautious when were out...

“A Banana for a friend….”

Pamho, AgtSP Berlin, Germany: One day during the marathon, I noticed my SKT partner was having an exceptionally huge day while I was struggling like crazy. At one point I also noticed that his book cart was running out early in the day, so somehow I managed to unlock and take it the van to reload it for him. When I came back he was kind of upset that I would serve him like that, but anyway…… Then he said he was thinking of...

From Islam to Krsna

Recently, I heard the following tale of how a follower of Islam became a devotee. He was a member of the PLO and an associate of Arafat. But he gave up his involvement in the PLO because of some things he disagreed with. He went to Germany to study at a university. One night he got drunk at a bar. Just to his right, on the table in front of him, was a magazine that someone had left: Back to Godhead. He was so drunk that he...

Book Distribution from Chowpatti

In the past we have seen how devotees have achieved spectacular success by distributing books in local trains of Mumbai. We have heard some daring accounts of intrepid distributors, braving all odds by shouting, enacting skits and giving fired up lectures in this crazy place. However, a lesser known fact is that there are many others who keep a very low profile, move about quietly in the trains and distribute books, and have the same...
