Youngsters buying Bhagavat Gita
What is Sanatana Dharma? A young boy approached our stall accompanied by two young girls. They probably belonged to the same class and were returning back after tuitions. The boy was urging the girls to buy Bhagavad‐Gita from our stall. I asked him if he would like to have one. While still trying to coax his classmates to buy; he responded that he had already purchased and had started reading. He was convinced that everyone should read it. After some persuasion; one of his classmates agreed and bought a Gita.
He discussed his reading of Bhagavad Gita where he had noted that sankirtan is the recommended process for this age; however he wanted to know “What is Sanatana Dharma?” that gets mentioned in the book many times. After a brief discussion; I requested him to attend the local program and took his contact number to inform him of the next Gita course. He was very grateful to us. His eagerness to dive deep into the Gita impressed me. Connect the seekers Subsequently, on this day, we happened to meet many such genuine seekers.
When we finally wound up the stall, our score was only 8 books, but it re‐ascertained the fact that there are a huge lot of people out there who are seeking the message of Godhead. Srila Prabhupada painstakingly wrote and established the BBT to have this message distributed. If only we could serve as instruments to connect the seekers with him through his books, we would have played our part. The score was low, but my spirit was high. I felt grateful that during my fight within; Krishna had mercifully helped me remember Srila Prabhupada. Elated but apprehensive of what awaited me at home; I knocked the door. I was greeted with an enthusiastic inquiry “So how was the book distribution?”. I instantly knew I had taken the right decision.
