Dandavats! All Glories to Sri Guru and Sri Gauranga!

By Vijaya das

Allons enfants de la Patrie, Le jour de gloire est arrivé! Last week we went to a festival in Tours. It was encouraging to see one of our senior devotees, Janananda Goswami, running around distributing books like a twenty-year old (he’s seventy). He stayed out till 12:30 a.m. distributing books — ecstasy! Before he went to France, it was pretty much off the map of book distribution, but in May, Paris did 1,225 book points and New Mayapura did 662 book points. Not many farm communities distribute books, but New Mayapura does.

Number one in Arabic book distribution is, believe it or not, a farm project in Germany, the Simhacalam temple. They more than doubled everyone else in the world distributing 182 Arabic books. For the second time Padayatra India is the number one temple in the small temple category in the world with 5,716 book points and a 96% increase. This isn’t your normal temple. It’s a moving temple, but a temple non the less.

The New York Harinama has risen to No. 11 in the world. Amazing! It started with Rama Raya Prabhu and a few devotees chanting Hare Krsna. Now, by Lord Caitanya's mercy, there's not only a big harinama 365 days a year but book distribution on a scale approaching the top ten temples in the world - another victory that I'm sure Srila Prabhupada is pleased with, since he started in New York

The Sydney temple has struggled in its book distribution for a few years because the government cracked down on people with religious visas, so many temple members had to leave the county, and some were book distributors. Now Sydney has made a comeback. It is the No. 1 temple among the Medium Temples, with almost 6,000 book points. Welcome back to the transcendental competition! Baltimore had a good month, too, placing No. 1 among the Small Temples. It did 5,336 book points, an increase of 317% over the previous year in February. Moscow now has three temples reporting, and they are in first, ...

I have been distributing Srila Prabhupada's books for more than 12 yrs. This is the part of my book distribution that I have started for the last 2 years now, and this has been successful. I give Srila Prabhupada's books, I explain to them about Peace mantra for their mind, body, and soul. I request them if they like to participate with me in chanting Hare Krishna Maha-mantra, they happily do it. You can see the clips to believe it.

Amazing things happened in 2018, starting with the New Delhi devotees, who never cease to amaze us. They had their biggest year ever and the biggest year in ISKCON's history, with 1,850,250 book points. What can we say about that, but JAYA! and JAYA! again. The Nairobi temple in Kenya, Africa, which did 6,115 book points in 2017, did 57,932 book points last year. I don't know what inspired the huge increase, but something auspicious happened to the devotees' consciousness. I've distributed there before, and believe me it's not easy. In Europe, London took the lead with 69,872 book point...

Book distribution is sankirtana. Kirtana means "glorification" and sam means "complete." Glorification of Krsna is complete when many devotees participate. Also, complete glorification means glorifying not only Krsna's name but also His form, His qualities, His pastimes, His entourage, His paraphernalia--everything related to Him. Distribution of Srila Prabhupada's books is complete glorification of Krsna because Srila Prabhupada's books glorify Krsna fully--His name, form, qualities, pastimes, and so on. Who worships Lord Caitanya by sankirtana? Those who are highly intelligent. Of course, s...
