The Srila Prabhupada Book Marathon started on Tuesday, 25 November. Srila Prabhupada affectionately encouraged his boys and girls: “I extend all blessings to those boys and girls who are trying to distribute our books even under difficult conditions.” (SPL January 1974)
Over the last two weeks the boys team travelled to Ulundi, Richards Bay, Empangeni, Mandini, Darnall, Stanger, Shakaskraal and Tinely Manor. They distributed 1800 books. On Fridat they travel to Escort and Ladysmith. The girls team will begin this weekend with book tables at the Chatsworth, Unit 2 shopping area, Bangladesh Market and Veg Express. Remember you are invited to join these teams even if just for an hour or two. Contact Pyari Mohan 083 602 6008 or Rukmini (from Saturday morning) 084 579 1080.
We welcomed His Holiness Krishna Das Swami, who arrived in Durban on Monday, 24 November.
