The community at ISKCON Punjabi Bagh came together to distribute 2,50,000 copies of Bhagawat Gita As It is by His Divine Grace A.C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada to the people in general in the months of December and January-2017.
Why are devotees so committed to this task?
“Transformations. Nothing gives us such satisfaction as to see people’s lives becoming transformed by the message of Lord Krishna. The knowledge really empowers the sincere reader.” Says HG Rukmini Krishna Das (Co-President) Besides, Bhagavat Gita can provide answers to all fundamental questions like the purpose of life, law of karma, Is there life after death, art of living, art of dying, the world and nature around, time, God, Soul, etc. The knowledge also helps an individual in dealing with food habits, lifestyle, time management, striking a balance, managing stress and anger, and similar areas of life.
How do they distribute such large quantity of books in just two months?
“We go practically everywhere. Stations, Jail, Homes, Shops, Offices, Kumbh Mela, Hospitals, Hotels, etc. We just show people the book, benefits it offers, and many people purchase.” Said Karuna Chandra Das, who distributed almost 30,000 copies.
This act of sharing knowledge has been considered one of the most sublime acts of compassion. Gyana Daan. (Chairty of Knowledge). Many members undertook great austerity and sacrifices in order to accomplish this task.
We would like to thank each one of our members who in any way contributed to this service. We would also like to thank every individual who received/accepted or purchased a copy of Bhagawat Gita and would encourage them to read it.
