I Don’t Even Know Why I Came Here…

I was at the tofu shop in Henderson NZ on part of a day filled with odd jobs I had to do, I took a Bhgavad Gita with me to stop a few people between the car park and the shop. I stopped this lady and asked her if she had a copy of the Gita yet. 'Of course, its wonderful' she replied. So I took a Science of Self realization from my bag and handed it to her. "O my God, you're killing me" she screamed in her...

A Bhagavad Gita For a Lover of Music and God

[The following was written by Titiksava-karunika Prabhu (universally known as TK), a devotee-musician who writes Krishna conscious rock songs and sings them alone or with his Namrock band in the US and abroad.] What do I do when not playing a Namrock gig? Well, one thing I do is play solo at the World Market swap meet. I always have some books with me on display. One day I started chatting with a man who said his son was also a...

Distributing our Precious Books

Book distribution is life. Krishna consciousness is not possible without reaching out to the conditioned souls by distributing Srila Prabhupada books. That is the fastest way to spiritually advance. As Srila Prabhupada famously said, "If you want to please me, then distribute my books." Also, my guru, His Grace Vaisesika Prabhu, always preaches the importance of book distribution. So it is my heart and soul. Just before my...
