“You have Arabic books? That’s my mother tongue.”

Bhagavad Gita

While distributing at Richland College in Dallas, I met a couple who came to my table enthusiastic to hear about the teachings of the Gita, which they saw on the table. Both of them had heard of it. I showed them the illustrations and explained a little. Then they became more enthusiastic to take one. The young lady was happy to take one and give a donation, but the young man said he would get it another time.

A half hour later they came back to the table. They had been reading it for that half hour, and the young man said, "This is so interesting that I want one now."

Meanwhile the young lady was looking in my box of books. She said, "I'm intrigued by all the books you have." I told her a lot of them are in different languages: Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Arabic."

As soon as I said Arabic, the young man said, "You have Arabic? That's my mother tounge." He's from Saudi Arabia. So he received the Bhagavad Gita and an Arabic book, "Perfect Questions, Perfect Answers." She also received more books.

Your servant,
Vijaya Dasa
