Distribution in Australia

Posted on March 27, 2016 by admin-vasanti

Thanks to the kind hearted generosity of the devotees who have participated and donated to the sponsored book program and also thanks to the hard working devotees of GVP, we were once again blessed to be able to distribute Srila Gurudeva’s Transcendental Literature along the coastal towns of Australia’s Gold Coast and New South Wales as well as the towns of Murwillumbah and Brisbane.

This time we decided to concentrate on a nice booktable display type presentation.

As it was the xmas and new year period many people would come to the table, initially attracted by the Indian trinkets, beads and beautiful pictures of Radha Krsna expertly painted by our very own Syamarani didi under the transcendental guidance of our very own Srila Gurudeva, but often or not they would leave with a beautiful book of our Gurudeva or our Srila Swami maharaja Prabhupada (as well as their Indian trinket to give as a xmas gift to their little sister/neice/daughter/son)!

Many people would come to the table mesmorised by the beautiful pictures depicted on the covers of the books and many people made inquiries into the nature of the Bhakti Yoga philosophy.

We had met one nice lady, Julie, who ran a healing centre in the beautiful seaside town of Burleigh Heads. Julie was very attracted to kirtan and she agreed to hold programs, free of cost in her healing centre which is just big enough to comfortably accommodate 30 to 40 guests as well as a small kitchen to prepare and serve delicious prasad from. So far we have held several programs in the centre and many nice people have been introduced to the Bhakti Yoga philosophy as well as enjoying ecstatic kirtan and delicious prasad.

The lady Julie after hearing all about the glories of the Jagannatha Ratha Yatra Festival held yearly in Jagannatha Puri, Orissa as well as receiving the book describing the 4 different reasons for the manifestation of our Lord Jagannatha decided that she would like to attend the festival and so has booked her ticket to India and will come to Puri this year with Candramukhi and Ragaleka didi’s as well as will be visiting Srila Gurudeva’s samadhi temple in Sri Navadwipa dhama.

We would like to thank once again the sponsors and sponsorship team for their hard work and kind donations which enables so many of Srila Gurudeva’s books to be distributed all over the world….Gaur Haribol!!!!
