New record and more!
I received a very recent report about the Prabhupada Marathon from Mahotsaha Prabhu. He broke his own record by distributing over 1,500 books in one day.
While in Tampa, within minutes he distributed two sets to Srimad Bhagavatam sets to people who knew nothing about Krsna consciousness before getting the sets.
Some time later he approached a man and he said, “I’m an atheist. I’m not interested.”
Mahotsaha responded, “That’s all right. Then give a donation. I like big donations.”
The atheist replied, “All right,” and opened up his wallet and gave him all he had.
Mahotsaha then gave him a Saptarsi set.
He asked, “What am I going to do with these? I’m an atheist.”
Mahosaha suggested, “Give them to your enemies.”
“All right. I’ll do that.”
Mahotsaha later counted the laxmi and saw that he gave over $1,200.
Nine brahmacaris went out six days a week, and six ladies who had become devotees from their book distribution, went part time. They distributed over 48,000 books!
