Ratha-yatra in Paris (Album with photos)
Srila Prabhupada: Krsna and the sound vibration “Krsna” are nondifferent, so if one loudly vibrates Hare Krsna, he will be able to think of Krishna immediately. This process of chanting is the best process of self-realization in this age; therefore Lord Caitanya preached it so nicely for the benefit of all humanity. (Srimad-Bhagavatam, 3.24.35 Purport)

Dear Vaishnavas, here are some stories from Czech devotees who distribute Srila Prabhupada’s book and Krsna’s prasadam. I also want to apologize that my english is not perfect.:-)
I was distributing in one industrial city and in the late afternoon suddenly one lady seeing me that I am distributing books came to me and very humbly gave me a piece of paper and asked me if I by the chance have these books. When I looked to the paper there was a complete list of Srila Prabhupada’s books and there was also written-Author:His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. I was really amazed. Then the lady told me whole story that her son wants her to buy these book for him for Christmas. She was out whole day searching for these books in every bookstore in the town and everywhere they told her that they don’t have these books. Suddenly at the and of the day she saw me and she decided to approach me. She happily took five books for her son.
Mahasringa prabhu met one christian and after some strong discussion the Christian decided to give small donation and took TLC. And then the christian challenged him that he will give him more donation if Mahasringa promised to him that he will pray for forty days to Jesus Christ. Mahasringa told him that he will pray to God for forty days and told him that he must also read this book every day at least for forty days. So the Christian gave a nice donation and promised that he will read Teachings of Lord Chaitanya.

Brahmananda Prabhu ki jaya!
Deena Bandhu Das: One of the great pillars of Srila Prabhupada’s ISKCON, Sriman Brahmananda Prabhu, left this world one year ago on June 7 that corresponds in the Vaisnava calendar to the 6th (sasti) day of the dark half of the month of Vamana. This year that tithi comes today on the 26th of June. I was extremely fortunate and honored last year to light his funeral pyre at the Yamuna, since his younger brother Gargamuni was too devastated to do it.
We can’t begin to do justice to his glories. He was one of Srila Prabhupada’s first disciples. He was the first temple president in ISKCON. By his devotion to Srila Prabhupada’s order, he was the first to go to such places as Turkey, Pakistan, and Africa, some of these places being quite dangerous!
Brahmananda Prabhu, carefully following Srila Prabhupada’s order, was the one who was able to get His Divine Grace’s Bhagavad-Gita As It Is published by the very famous Macmillan Company. And that was after so many other companies had rejected Brahmananda’s plea for them to print it.
We could go on forever, but suffice it to say, Brahmananda Prabhu was the genuine Prabhupada Man, a great luminary in the sky of ISKCON, an enormous storehouse of nectarean Prabhupada Katha, and an ocean of love for Srila Prabhupada!

Giriraj Swami: Today Hema Malini, the famed performer from India, visited the ISKCON Los Angeles temple, and I was reminded of when she and I were together on the stage of the ISKCON auditorium in Juhu, Mumbai. It was December, during the book-distribution marathon, and after the performance I asked the audience to come forward to purchase sets of Srila Prabhupada’s Srimad-Bhagavatam and Sri Caitanya-caritamra, for concessional rates. The response was slow, so I leaned over and asked her if I could announce that she would autograph one book from each set, and she kindly agreed. After the announcement, people jumped out of their seats and rushed toward the stage, standing in long queues to get their sets of Srila Prabhupada’s books. And I thought, “This is the proper use of her name and fame—to distribute Srila Prabhupada’s books.”

Three stories from distributing Srila Prabhupada’s books.
Tulasi Devi Dasi: I tried to speak to one man who quickly said, “No. No time! I said, "No time? What’s your job”? “Drug salesman”. “Really, what’s the biggest selling product”? “Maalox (for ulcers). "No time? You better take time to read this book or you’ll gave to take Maalox like everyone else”. He then said, “You’re right”. And quickly took a book and gave a donation.
I was speaking to a simple farmer who didn’t want a book but somehow in our conversation it came out that all his friends are dying of cancer, left and right. We were speaking about death and getting more serious about why we’re here. He then revealed to me that one real close friend of his had two months to live – cancer in the liver. And he told me that he wouldn’t want to be told that he had only two months to live. So I said, “I would! "Then I showed him the inside cover of S.B of Pariksit Maharaj how he only had seven days to live and that it was a blessing, a big warning for us to get serious in our spiritual life and forget everything else. Whew! What a benediction it would be!”
He completely changed, lit up and said, “Yes, your right! And took a book to find out more.
Boy, Baptist. "No, against my beliefs. I’m satisfied with blind faith.” I said, “No, we need philosophy. Just like Jimmy Swaggert, he also has blind faith. But he’s still on the 10th class spiritual platform with no philosophy. We should progress with philosophy and devotion, if we act on that blind faith, then God becomes pleased and gives us deeper realization, then it is no longer useless blind faith. Then we do more of what the Lord wants and He gives us more realization. So these books are filled with all kinds of knowledge of those progressing through the different stages of spiritual life”.
He then said, “That makes sense”, and took the highest philosophy of Krsna consciousness in the form of one of Prabhupada’s books.

Well Received In Moldova (8 min video)
Indradyumna Swami: Moldova, a small landlocked country between Romania and Ukraine, has a unique culture all it’s own. By the mercy of Lord Caitanya our festival tour was well received in the capital, Chisinau, and several other towns and villages. In fact, everywhere in the world where we take our festival program people are fascinated by the spiritual culture of Krsna consciousness and chant and dance with us in great ecstasy.

Our false ego prevents us from looking at our own faults. It makes it difficult for us to acknowledge our faults and therefore, instead of being introspective, we see those faults in others. Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur said, “Because I am myself honeycombed with faults, I see the faults of others”.  If you spot it, you have got it  In the realm of psychology it is said that if something about someone really bothers you, it’s usually because you have that fault. Of course, we usually don’t accept or acknowledge this. This is a powerful way to understand ourselves better.  Say “Thank you!” One executive coach that works with very successful people teaches them to be open to feedback. He says that they when receiving feedback they must not use the words, “But”, “No”, and “However.” They should just say “Thank you!”

Texas is known for being big in everything. Well, now, Dallas is doing big in book distribution: No. 3 in the USA for May. The temple had a great month with 3,695 book points: an increase of 824%. The temple president, Nityananda Prabhu, is enthusiastic to distribute full sets of Srila Prabhupada’s books, and this is where most of the book points are coming from. He’s a great example of an ISKCON leader.

While in Slovenia, I had the honor of distributing books with a veteran book distributor, Prahladananda Swami. In two years he’ll celebrate his own golden jubilee; in other words, he’s been distributing Srila Prabhupada’s books for the past forty-eight years.

Satsvarupa dasa Goswami: Remembering the Early Exchanges with Swamiji.
If the spiritual world is the real goal, then why do I keep going back to that infinitesimal span of time – the 1966 days? Prabhupada’s lila was so sweet then, and it was also a special time for me, the time when he lifted me out of the cycle of birth and death. I cannot help remembering it now. That remembrance reinforces my conviction not to fall back into material life. I am not clear yet, I am surrounded by temptations. I have not completed the process. My material desires can still attract me, especially if I forget how implicated in the material world I was before I met Prabhupada. But I gratefully remember those days in 1966, the first days of my spiritual life and the first days of Prabhupada’s mission in the West, by falling on my knees and thanking him.
I remember in the very early days when Swamiji started looking for a new building in New York City. We didn’t get one, and we had to stay at 26 Second Avenue. But there were adventures connected with the search. One time, we saw a place on the second floor somewhere that required a lot of work. The room was filled with lumber and was very dirty. After we checked it out, we went back to 26 Second Avenue and sat with Swamiji in his room. Swamiji turned to me and asked, “Mr. Secretary, what did you think of the place?” I gave my opinion, feeling important because of the way Prabhupada had addressed me. I was touched that he asked my opinion.
Why do I ever forget these little exchanges? Why don’t I always remember them and know that Prabhupada loves me, that my real relationship with him consists of typing for him, writing for him, always being his affectionate servant?
