Bhagavad-gita and Lord Jesus Christ
Bhagavad-gita and Lord Jesus Christ.
I was showing the Bhagavad-gita to one gentleman, he expressed his interest but said he was a Christian. He said, “If you can show me in this book where Jesus is praised I’ll take it.” I showed him 11.55 purport where Prabhupada says, “There are many examples in history of devotees of the Lord who risked their lives for the spreading of God consciousness. The favourite example is Lord Jesus Christ. He was crucified by the nondevotees, but he sacrificed his life for the spreading of God consciousness.”
He said, “Alright you got me.”
A guy came to my table and said, “Three years ago you showed me the Bhagavad-gita and I really wanted it and told you I would be back to get it. When I returned you were gone. But now I have money I would like to get it.“
Delayed book distribution.
Two guys came to my table joking. One of them, Doug, said to me, “I think my friend here, Alex, is ready to become a Hare Krsna.” Then he started chanting Hare Krsna. Going along with their joking I said, “No, I don’t think he’s ready yet, he’s got to many material desires.” Then I got serious and started showing them the BG.
Then Doug said, “You know this is interesting but I don’t have any money.”
Alex then said, “I can get it for you.”
I said, “Most people are giving $10.” He gave $20. So I said, “You gave a nice donation you take one also.”
“No, I’m an atheist, I’d never read it.”
“Could you give it to a friend or someone?” “
“Yea, OK I can do that.”
He took it and as he was walking away he saw a man coming to my table in a hasty way. So Alex said to him, “Do you want this book? And handed it to him. The guy couldn’t believe that someone had just given him such a nice book.
Lord Caitanya is so amazing, Doug is an atheist but he bought a book for a friend and distributed another one to a total stranger. An atheist became a book distributor.
