Nélio approached us, asking: “What is your religion?”
Mahananda Murari Prabhu explained that we exist to serve God, and the Hare Krishna Mantra is, precisely, a request for service.
After a frank and relaxed conversation, Nelio and his sister Neliane revealed that they now had a totally different view of us, and so happily they kept their Gita!

In photo 2, Manohara Saciputra Prabhu went out after the Sunday Festival and was worried about his chances of distributing Gitas so late at night.
The first people he approached were friendly. The man said, “Listen, I have to show you something,” and handed Manohara his to-do list for the day. One of the items still unfulfilled was, ‘Buy a Bhagavad-Gita.’
Manohara couldn’t believe it. He left the man and his friend with a Gita each, plus several other books.

On this auspicious day of the Advent of the Bhagavad-Gita, let us pray to Krishna for His mercy to understand and distribute his Song, and especially to our Founder-Acarya for his blessings to unconditionally trust his divine translation, the Bhagavad-gita As It Is.
