Hare Krsna Prabhu’s,

Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

The month of November was a good warm up for the Prabhupada Marathon. Two temples in New Delhi did extraordinary, the Radha Parth-sarathi Temple and New Delhi(Punjabi Bag). The devotees of Radha Partha-sarathi temple did 115,518 book points, amazing, and Punjabhi Bag did 49,534 points. They’re definitely on the same page as Prabhupada.

Then there is Essentuki Russia that did 11,655 points. Where did they come from? We’ve never even heard of this temple and they just came up and are number one in the small temple catagory, what a pleasant surprise.

And now here is another amazing event that took place on the front lines of book distribution:

About a week before Gita Jayanti, one devotee in Bombay went out to distribute Srimad Bhagavad Gita. At one place, he knocked the door but no one replied. He did not give up and again knocked the door, still it was unanswered. With firm determination to distribute Bhagavad Gita, he again knocked with a much greater force. At this time a lady angrily opened the door and shouted, “What do you want? I am very busy with important work” and tried to close the door. But as she was closing the door this devotee put his foot between the door in such a way that she could not close it and he immediately put Bhagavad Gita in her hand. Just by touching Srimad Bhagavad Gita, this lady felt relaxed and calmed down. Then she enquired from the devotee about Bhagavad Gita and he explained to her the difference between the body and the soul according to chapter two. She then told the devotee that the “important work” she was busy with, was to commit suicide. She showed him the table, the fan, and the rope hanging from the fan. It was only by the mercy of Sri Krsna and his devotee that she was saved from such a dangerous situation. Now she is a devotee and is associated with ISKCON temple in Bombay. Srila Prabhupada’s books have saved many lives and given them real life.

All glories to Srila Prabhupada’s book distribution. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

Your humble servant, Radha Piyari dasi
