Krishna prasad prabhu recalls:Very nice lady named Maya from Staten Island. Her father is Hindu and her mother is Catholic.

5 Sets of Caitanya Caritamrtas Distributed at Sunday Feast lecture

“Pay attention…” I said, “…and you might win a prize! All you need is….” Someone shouted, “LOVE!”, from the back of the temple room.   “Is he right?” I asked the young people sitting in front. “Do you really believe that?” “Love is all you need.” One of them said.  “Are you sure?” They smiled and nodded. “Yes definitely!

Miserable. “I would drink and then read a few...

It was a nice ending at De Afghanan Kabob House, in Freemont, where we couldn’t enter the front part of the restaurant because the restaurant was still closed.

When we returned, I tried to distribute “a saptarishi set.” The interested lady, Wajma...

A construction worker is inspired by Prabhupada’s books

Gopal Champu prabhu recalls: Super sweet guy named Zam from Brooklyn. He ran into the Harinam about a year ago and took some books from us. Since then he’s been reading Prabhupada’s books and chanting “Hare Krishna” daily. He put a Jagannath sticker that we had given him on his work helmet for good luck and it’s been there for a year now! He’s working construction in the area where we’ve been distributing books for the past week and...
