A Hostel in downtown San Diego

That is an exception. In the 9 years since we started the Sastra Dana program this is the first time something like it was reported.

By the way, we are about to produce a newspaper with Srila Prabhupada’s teachings that is going to be distributed off the racks. That will help us be more liberal as to where we place our racks. I am sure that some of the copies are going to get destroyed and abused, but that’s the price you need to pay if you want to bring Krishna consciousness to the masses. I hope that in the future our newspaper will become something like the “LA Times” or San Diego’s “Reader”, publications available free of charge at every street corner.

We invite all you revolutionaries to join in the effort. We need graphic designers, desktop publishers, editors, fund raisers, donors, distributors, etc.

If you’re seriously interested in joining hands, drop us an email:

Your servant,
Mahat-tattva Dasa

The value of wearing saris and dhotis in the execution of our devotional activities

I’ve been distributing books in the States for the last 10 years and I always wear dothi, kurta, cadar, and have my head shaved, with tilak on the forehead. By far mostly people think of me as a monk and that with respect.

Last year I went to TX, Dallas and Austin. I thought I was going to run into lots of Christians who will give me hard time. Nope. I had the best time ever. As a matter of fact I took several bhaktas and bhaktins with me and we all wore dothis and saris and it was just great.

Dothi helps me think of Krishna and it helps me remember what am I all about. It also reminds everyone who sees me of Krishna and spiritual values.

Just recently I was distributing in LA when a fellow dressed in an expensive suit, looking like a successful businessman, came over really close to me and said, “Look at you and look at me.” Then he called himself a miserable materialist. He said that even more pathetic is the fact that he had no strength to give up his misery.

Weekly I take tons of pictures of me and my friends distributing in dothis and saris standing next to smiling American citizens. The last thing in the world I would think is that people are put off by our traditional dress. People rather find it exotic.

Suresh Prabhuji, your question is answered in the newsletter. If you watch the video or read the text you will find your answer. Sorry for the late reply. I didn’t visit this site since our newsletter was published on this site.
