Apr 1 2011 Sankirtan Magic in Washington, DC

By Nimai Charan Agarwal

Magic… a word that has many contexts, meanings, and connotations. In America’s early childhood, it was used in the same line as darkness, evil, the Devil’s newfangled shiny red horn, the dark arcane arts that brought the practitioners to the stake. Over time, the meaning changed, but the core sense of mystery remained...until every storyteller found the treasure in the word and its essence was ground to Tartarus

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
