(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 20 June 2014, Stockholm, Sweden, Caitanya Caritamrta Madhya 22.75)

gourakarunaIf sometimes, we feel a little dry in our Krsna consciousness – if sometimes we feel that chanting is good but difficult, if we feel like reading but we fall asleep, if we just feel, “What to do now?” then let us just preach. But – preach boldly! Not just give them a book but, reach out to them.

It was amazing – devotees would just go anywhere, in any situation. They would wait next to a flat which had an intercom system. They would stand next to the intercom and just when the door of the flat opens and someone comes out, they would say, “Oh it is okay, the door is already open!” to the speaker and just walk in. So many tricks! Somehow or other – bold, BOLD!

One devotee just walked in like that into the flat of a student of literature; that’s right, a student of literature! He was studying; his whole life was books and books.

The devotee walked in and said, “I have some books…”

The student said, “Books! Books! You have books!?”


So, devotees have a nose for these things. He did not show him just the one book but the full set; he sold him the full set! Now that person, that student, has become one of the head production managers of one of our BBTs. It had to happen. Books, books, books! So, if somehow or other we penetrate into people’s lives then miracles will happen for them and for us.
