Dear Devotees, I was also surprised and saddened by the news of the departure of the Maha-Ratha book distributor, Sanjaya Prabhu. His name is legend in the sankirtan newsletters of the 1970’s. My memory of meeting him has never left me.
I was sitting in the Healthy, Wealthy & Wise, (the London Soho St restaurant, as it was called in those days) with the local big collectors and he came over and introduced himself. He told us he had just sold a number of big books on Oxford St. (This wasn’t the “collect money and give a book” method, this was straight book selling (as we termed it) sold on the merits of the devotee and the book.
I was astounded at meeting Sanjaya Prabhu, as I had followed his name in the sankirtan newletter, year in, year out, and knew he was amongst the best in the movement at convincing people to purchase a book of His Divine Grace.
I asked him “I didn’t know you were in England, when did you arrive”
“To-day” he laughed.
He had just got off the plane from America that very day and was already out on the street selling books.
