Jun 28 2014 Waves of Sankirtana

By Sri Ramadasa

Srila Bhaktivinode Thakur, The Seventh Goswami, pioneered the spread of Lord Chaitanya's teachings in the West, sending copies of his works to Ralph Waldo Emerson in the USA and to Reinhold Rost in Europe in 1880. He is the first acarya in our sampradaya to propagate the waves of the nectarean ocean of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu’s unparalleled divine mission to places outside India. Following in his lead, His Divine Grace AC Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada had translated, printed, and published volumes of sastras to propagate the mission of Lord Chaitanya throughout the world.

Jun 25 2014 WSN May 2014 - World Sankirtan Newsletter

By Vijaya Dasa

While I was giving a book distribution seminar recently in Santiago, Chili, a devotee described an interesting incident that happened many years ago. A devotee was distributing books, and the books were going out much faster than usual. He usually would take a certain amount of books, and they would last a reasonable amount of time. Then he would go back to the temple. But this one day they were going out so quickly that he ran out much earlier than he expected.

May 25 2014 WSN April 2014 - World Sankirtan Newsletter - Huge increase in book distribution of Iskcon Durban, South Africa!

By Vijaya Dasa

In Durban, South Africa, a country permeated by crime, the devotees scored a huge increase. They had the highest percentage increase in the Large temple category, a 408% increase over their monthly average, with 1,637 book points. The last time I visited the Durban temple the devotees told me how dangerous this crime-ridden country is. I was shocked hearing the stories. All glories to these devotees, who regularly take risks to spread Krsna consciousness!

By Vijaya dasa

Here's some big news from the world of book distribution. For the first time Cuba has reported a book distribution score! I have been hearing about devotees from Miami going there to hold programs with favorable people and even going out on book distribution. Now they have reported scores. This is very auspicious. People of Spanish decent are generally quite pious, as Srila Prabhupada noted when he visited Mexico and Venezuela. Cubans are no exception. Some very nice devotees in Miami are Cuban.

Mar 12 2014 “BBT Only” Day

By the BBT

In cooperation with the ISKCON GBC, the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust is marking March 14 as the first annual “BBT Only” Day. This is a day to remember the following important instructions from Srila Prabhupada: He formed the BBT to serve as his exclusive publisher. He wanted all his books purchased exclusively from the BBT. His Divine Grace gave those instructions in a letter addressed to all ISKCON temples. The letter was dated March 14, 1974. March 14 this year will be the fortieth anniversary of that letter.

Feb 21 2014 WSN January 2014 - World Sankirtan Newsletter. Look out, Bhaktivedanta Manor book distributors!

By Vijaya Dasa

It looks like some temples got so much good momentum going during the marathon that they just didn't want to stop. Simhacalama (Germany) is one of these. The team consists of brahmacaries traveling around Germany in a bus to distribute the mercy. In January, with 3,425 book points, they came very close to doubling the January results of the first-place temple in Western Europe for 2013, Bhaktivedanta Manor. And last year they were only about three thousand points behind the Manor. So look out, Bhaktivedanta Manor book distributors! The Germans may be seeking that first-place spot this year.

Jan 31 2014 WSN December 2013 - Wow! Another year better than the last one: over 8 million books distributed! The highest total since 1995!

By Vijaya das

Look what New Delhi did: 641,898 book points! And look what Juhu did: 453,396 book points! Incredible. And Mayapur: 325,423 book points. And look what the simple temple, Sri Sri Radha-Gopinath in Chowpatti, did: 309,661 book points--amazing. All of these temples increased by 999% above their monthly average. I think the book distributors in these temples were in samadhi, especially Madhusundara Prabhu in New Delhi who did 31,410 book points. He should be in the book distributors hall of fame if such a hall ever manifests.

Jan 16 2014 In 2013 book distribution in NA increased 25% from the previous year!

By Mukhya Devi Dasi

In 2012 we set the goal to increase by 20%, and we increased 28.6%. In 2013 we again set a goal for 20%, we increased 25%, and it was the largest remittance to the BBT in 30 years. Additionally, this year more of the temples increased. The NA BBT gives more to the construction fund in Mayapur than any other book trust. This success is due to cooperating together, and we see it only increasing.

If Prabhupada smiled at you directly and connected for even a second, it became an indelible samskara that would stay with you for life. Everyone hankered for those gems and collected them as precious gifts. Prabhupada continued to look from side to side to acknowledge everyone, and then when he was about 15 feet from me, he bestowed one of those jewels on me. I smiled gratefully and fixed my gaze on him
