The Art of Book Distribution Seminar
By Vijaya dasa
Hare Krsna Prabhus,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
Last year during the Mayapur festival many international leaders of our sankirtan movement and some of the BBT managers had a meeting about book distribution and concluded that we should revive the book distribution training course. So it’s happening. Bhrgupati Prabhu and myself will be the facilitators for the first seminar at the beginning of the festival then Navina Nirada Prabhu and Anakandundubhi Prabhu will have one after the parikrama. The one by Bhrgupati Prabhu and myself won’t cost anything, just bring a pad of paper and a pen, there will be some things you may want to remember. It will take place on the 24th 25th and 26th of Febuary, two hours a day. This will be a shortened presentation because of all of the other activities happening during the Maypura Festival.
Some of the things we’ll be discusing will be: proper consciousness on book distribution, methods of book distribution, things to say and not say on bd, cultivating interested people, dealing with opposition (internal and external), the importance of book distribution, sadhana, pratical demonstrations of book distribution, etc.
Bhrgupati Prabhu has been distributing books for 35 years, is one of the leading book distributors in the world and has been the sankirtan leader in Los Angeles for the past 10 years. He is a very respected member of our society and very dear amongst the sankirtan devotees around the world.
Your servant, Vijaya das has been distributing for 30 years and has been the sankirtan minsiter of book distribution since 2002.
