Whenever I get reports of my books selling, I feel strength”- said Srila Prabhupada when he was extremely weak due to poor health in September of 1974. Sankirtan Devotees in their efforts to please Srila Prabhupada and the Acharyas worked strenuously to distribute Bhagavad-Gitas in the December Marathon.
Post Marathon, On the 5th of February, HH Bhakti Ratnakar Ambarish Swami Maharaj who has been distributing Srila Prabhupada’s books in Russia for the past 40 years, graciously blessed the team to intensify their efforts. His Holiness kindly accepted to perform Harinaam sankirtan in the Sankirtan bus. This act
motivated the Sankirtan team of ISKCON Punjabi Bagh to fulfill their ever increasing desire to please Srila Prabhupada as they organized another T-20, i.e. A 20-days Sankirtan trip covering Bahadurgarh, Gurugram and Faridabad. In their pursuit to distribute books, they found many people who admitted that they were in search of Bhagavad-Gita. The thirst for Krishna consciousness was evident in the faces of everyone who saw the devotees distributing.
