Santas, the saints, on sankirtan, book distribution


Book distribution

The devotees of the Supreme Lord, or the persons who are in Krishna consciousness, are called santas, and they are always in love with the Lord as it is described in the Brahma-samhita (5.38): premanjana-cchurita-bhakti-vilocanena santah sadaiva hridayeshu vilokayanti. The santas, being always in a compact of love with the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Govinda (the giver of all pleasures), or Mukunda (the giver of liberation), or Krishna (the all-attractive person), cannot accept anything without first offering it to the Supreme Person. – purport to Bhagavad-gita As It Is 3.13

Yesterday was another ecstatic day of distribution of Srila Prabhupada’s books.   We have our own nice table set in the main entrance of the mall in the main hallway in front of the place where you go to get your photos with Santa Claus.   We had that day a total of nine devotees distributing numbers of books in the this wonderful mall.  It was great.   We also sold a lot of books using Square credit card terminal on iPhone and iPad.  We had seasoned veterans such as Narottamananda Prabhu and Radha Vinod Prabhu and many other devotees such as Mother Sucharya, Bhaktin Elizabeth.  We also had many devotee who were getting on the job training such as Mother Githa Narayana and the Madana Kisor Prabhu and his whole family, as well as Muraleedharan Prabhu.  All the devotees did wonderfully.  Because the books very easily flowed out of their hands it was a very nice place to learn how to distribute Srila Prabhupada’s books.  Devotees felt enlivened and satisfied in heart, even one devotee was crying tears of happiness.  Hare Krishna.
