PRESS RELEASE *FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE*
Bhagavad-gita “Classic” From The BBT!
Raya Nitai Dasa: Last year OneISKCON.com sent out a press release informing the society of devotees of the plans of the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust in regards to the printing and availability for distribution of the 1972 Macmillan edition of Srila Prabhupada’s Bhagavad-gita As It Is.
OneISKCON.com has also been following the progress throughout the last year.
I am transcendentally proud to announce that I have recently had the pleasure of purchasing twenty cases of original edition Bhagavad-gita’s from the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust! Each case contains twenty hardbound (wonderfully constructed) copies of the unrevised 1972 edition of Srila Prabhupada’s Bhagavad-gita As It Is. Cases are priced at $100.00 US, so that puts the individual copies at $5.00 US each. These books are the most beautiful books in the universe! They are selling like wildfire. I sold 17 copies on the street yesterday in Asheville, North Carolina. When I ordered these books, the BBT sent them to me immediately and opened an unsecured personal credit account for me, so I can send the laxmi to them after I distribute the books! The Bhaktivedanta Book Trust managers are about to send for another order, so the books will be in stock in Los Angeles when I am ready to make another purchase. The operators at the BBT are waiting by the telephones and are ready to take orders from any and all. The hours at the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust offices are 9:30 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Friday (PST). The toll-free number is: 1-800-927-4152. Please take this opportunity to continue to support the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust by purchasing and distributing the original unrevised 1972 Macmillan edition of bhagavad-gita As It Is!
I would also like to personally thank His Holiness Jayadvaita Swami and His Grace Svavasa Dasa for making these most ecstatic transcendental literatures available for mass distribution in the United States of America!
LATEST UPDATE AS OF JANUARY 31, 2013:
Due to high a demand and soaring sales numbers of the “classic” edition of Bhagavad-gita As It Is, the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust of North America has ordered a larger quantity of Bhagavad-gita’s from India. The result is greater availability and a small cost reduction. Currently, the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust is offering the “classic” edition of Bhagavad-gita As It Is for the low, low price of $4.50 U.S., which brings the case price to only $90.00 U.S.! Thank you for continuing to support the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust!
