After 37 years of service all around this great country of Australia, in systematically distributing the books of Swami A.C. Bhaktivedanta, the founder of ISKCON or Hare Krishna movement, such as Bhagavad Gita As It Is, Srimad Bhagavatam, Caitanya Caritamrita, and others, along with some of his disciples’ not-to-be-neglected vegetarian cookbooks, such as Kurma Dasa’, with the purpose of lifting the spiritual standards of our Australian public-readers, this extended traveling, door to door, book distribution is now coming to an end. We shall instead distribute books locally and continue to distribute books online. Currently, we offer to anyone in the world a free Bhagavad-Gita As It Is, version one, also called the 1972 Macmillan edition, softbound, here: https://krishnaculture.org/special-offers/. Our best years of traveling netted 5000 pieces of literature distributed door to door. For the record, this Hare Krishna books distribution mission has actually started in Paris, France, in June 1973. So all together 48 years of international service with some interruptions, through Switzerland, Germany and India, the spiritual hub of the world. Srila Prabhupada always stressed book distribution very much. Please see https://krishnaculture.org/book-distribution/ So we are changing with the times and the coronavirus pandemic is a contributing factor among others. We practice and promote, both privately and in the streets the chanting of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra, or great, designated chant of deliverance for this age of quarrel and hypocrisy:” HARE KRISHNA HARE KRISHNA KRISHNA KRISHNA HARE HARE / HARE RAMA HARE RAMA RAMA RAMA HARE HARE and various other Sanskrit mantras. With accordion and all, chanting Hare Krishna can actually be quite fun. Just watch the dancy wancy kirtan by Madhava’s rock band here: https://krishnaculture.org/2021/09/01/3803/, recorded in Vrindavan, Krishna’s birthplace, Uttar Pradesh, India. It is also the Hare Krishna charitable tradition that, as far as is possible, anyone who is destitute and hungry is welcome to have a free meal at one’s home, or at the ISKCON Hare Krishna free or low-cost meals distribution centers. Our website remains https://krishnaculture.org.
CHANGE OF PLAN: Traveling book distribution along with Hari Nam Sankirtan has resumed again.
