Dandavats! All Glories to Sri Guru and Sri Gauranga!

In July, the two main UK temples, Bhaktivedanta Manor and London-Soho, had a great month. They had a summer marathon as they celebrate fifty years of Hare Krishna culture in the UK this year. The Manor did 6,154 book points, a 234% increase, and London did 5,297 book points, a 116% increase. These results made them the two top temples in Europe. These two temples have a special place in Srila Prabhupada’s heart. Sri Sri Radha—London-Isvara were transcendentally kidnapped by Srila Prabhupada, and Bhaktivedanta Manor was the last temple in the West he visited. Many book distributors from Eur...

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 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, ...

There's a temple in Europe that's a relic of ISKCON's past. It's in Czech Republic and is called Prabhupada Bhavan. There are about fifteen brahmacaris whose main service is book distribution. This is the No. 1 temple in Europe in the Small Temple category in January, with 3,149 book points.

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...

A lot of temples did really well in October. Among large temples, Radhadesh looked really good, for a rural community, increasing by 296%, with 1,632 book points. Nice to see Radhadesh in the newsletter again. Among the medium temples, Sydney-North made a comeback, with an increase of 218% (7,572 book points), putting it in the No. 2 spot worldwide in this category. Mira Road was right behind, with an increase of 158% and 3,671 book points. There's a new marble temple there and a sincere congregation. Among the small temples, Cueramaro (Mexico) had a huge month: an increase...

An interesting thing happened in the USA: Paramesvara Prabhu distributed 280 Arabic books in August. That's about ten Arabic books a day. Amazing! Another interesting score is one that Lord Krsna will be especially pleased by: the No. 2 temple in the world in August was Vrindavan, the village of Krsna's appearance. The devotees did 21,155 book points. They distribute large numbers of books right at the temple, and there is also a traveling book distribution team. I'm sur...

When Rama Raya Prabhu returned to New York from Vrindavan after Aindra Prabhu passed on, he decided to go to New York City and just do harinama 365 days a year. He thought that his good friend Aindra would be pleased if he did that service. At first, he would get one or two devotees to go with him, but eventually the number grew and grew. Now there are always ten or twenty people with him. Wherever there's harinama, it's not long before book distribution naturally follows....
