Prabhupadanugas distributing books! (Jaya!) ys pd

Hare Krishna to all Dear ones,
Please accept my humble obesiances with all glories to Srila Prabhupada. I just wanted to update you all with our little effort of Srila Prabhupada's book distribution at Diwali Festival, organized by HTCC, Bothell. I would like to first of all convey my heartiest thanks to our Bothell temple authorities, who has given us opportunity to set up our book stall at the event. Lord Krishna will certainly bless them all for this.
Many people asked us if we are representing any organization. Let me state this that we do not represent any profit or non organization - we simply do this to please our Spiritual Master and Lord Shri Krishna. If by the medium of these books, the Kirtan we do, or by any means, if we are able to infuse Krishna's pinch of love in the hearts of people then our mission to obey the orders of Srila Prabhupada is considered successful. These are all the 'Original books' unchanged version by Srila Prabhupada. We do not make any profits from our book distribution program. If anyone has money they can donate us, but if not then the books are still available to them to take.
Our sole purpose of "distributing books", is to fulfill the orders of our Spiritual Master Srila Prabhupada, who’s Spiritual Master once ordered Him "When you get some money - 'Print some books'".  We also wanted to make our lives worth by following on the orders and desires of our beloved Spiritual father Srila Prabhupada.
* Here is what Srila Prabhupada has to say about Krishna books"
The Sankirtana devotees are very dear to Krishna. Because you are doing the field work of book distribution, Krishna has immediately recognized them as true servants. Just like during war time, a farm boy or ordinary clerk who goes to fight for his country on the front immediately becomes a national hero for his sincere effort. So Krishna immediately recognizes a preacher of Krishna Consciousness who takes all risk to deliver His message. [Letter By Srila Prabhupada to Uttamasloka, 11 December 1975]
I would also like to thanks Shri Pranva Prabhu for his continuous effort in making this happen. We set up a large table with full of Srila Prabhupada books, continuous Vrindavan DVD and Darshan DVD playing, and Prasaad tray full of Simply wonderfuls (thank you Andy Prabhu for helping me making those Simply Wonderfuls so wonderful..). We also had a nice Rose and sandlewood incense burning for the entire time we were there..
I like to thank my daughter and son who tirelessly help us setup and load/unload the book and other materials boxes.
We were given an option to choose the spot thus we choose the most visible and most accessible spot. Lots of people came and we handed out many with Simply Wonderfuls (which they all relished). We also had a chance to tell a few people about Krishna's pastimes.
Rest these pictures will explain…
Once again thanks to all who helped and thanks to all who are reading this little transcendental pastime...
Radhe Radhe....
