The Ambassador of Goodwill: Srila Prabhupada, the Founder-Acharya of ISKCON, the International Society for Krishna Consciousness traveled from India in 1965 to the USA from India.
But he was not like his contemporary Indian travelers who generally travel West to make money.
Srila Prabhupada did not come to America to make money.
He came to the USA as an "Ambassador of Good Will."Srila Prabhuapda came with the great gift of Krishna consciousness.
As book distributors we should have the same mood.
Book distribution is not for making money.
Book distribution is to give others Krishna.
We have to see each person as a spirit soul and should not put anyone into difficulty.
Hare Krishna book distributors need to be "Ambassadors of Goodwill." But we should disturb ourselves.
The hard part of going out on sankirtan is going out.
But once we are out on sankirtana we feel like we are back home.
A group of new devotees were going out on book distribution from ISKCON Silicon Valley Devotee.
They go out every weekend on the Hare Krishna "Weekend Warriors" program.
What is the goal of Hare Krishna Book distribution.
To sell books? No.
To leave everyone with a good impression of the Hare Krishna movement.
The people should feel that Hare Krishna devotees are good people.
They should feel happy to meet us.
The main thing is to go out on Sankirtana, you will see miracles will happen.
And it is important to share this good news with the other devotees...
We go out to meet people and let them feel they have met someone of substance, someone nice...
We do the best we can to leave everyone with a good feeling.
We go out as "Ambassadors of Goodwill" to make people feel happy...
