Feelings of Gratitude-Letters to the Prison Ministry

“Wherever you go, whomever you meet, tell them about Krsna”-

Krsna is present in His books, all we have to do is get them into a persons hands. However we distribute books the point is to get people to read them. Here is a nice letter from someone who is doing this in prison. He is a new bhakta.

Dear Mother Shyama,

Hare Krsna. I received the books you sent on Friday. I read Easy Journey to Other Planets and it really opened my eyes to Krsna consciousness knowledge. Mother, I’m willing to follow all of God’s rules. They are not so hard at all. I’ve lost a lot of interest for material things, even having a wife and kids on this material planet. I’m very happy Mother, greater then I’ve ever been before in my life. I feel so good and brand new. I don’t worry about anything. And fear nothing. You never gave up on me. You knew I was only still blind.

The day you sent the books, one man saw me get them and asked me what they were, so I gave two to him to read. Then there were two female officers I introduced to chant the maha mantra and hold these books, they both took off. I told them not to be afraid and what was happening, that they were having their consciousness revived back to God. They didn’t want any part of it. But never forgot. Soon they got their nerves to calm down and read. Soon they felt God’s bliss and love. Mother they were shocked and attracted. I also explained how we were all misled from the true teachings of God and they believed it. So I told them how to contact you for more information. Mother it feels so great and so much fun doing this. I want to teach others how to chant the maha mantra, focus on the lotus feet of the Lord, never doubt, never give up and just read all the books they can, Krsna Himself, will teach them if they do it with faith.

Bhakta Jerome, Reidsville GA
