Our Family Business: Great Cause from Vaisesika Dasa on Vimeo.

In this very readable book, Vaisesika Dasa discusses why we should join the family business of distributing transcendental knowledge through the written word.

It has been highly praised by ISKCON leaders including Jayapataka Swami, Giriraj Swami, Indradyumna Swami and many more as a must-read for all devotees, not just book distributors.

“The work covers its subject so thoroughly and deeply, that it simultaneously serves as a superb instructional manual for Krishna Bhakti itself,” writes Ravindra Svarupa Das in his forward. “Even if book distribution is not your primary service, you will still find yourself enlightened, encouraged and enlivened by reading and re-reading Our Family Business.”

Vaisesika himself, in his introduction, adds: “Experts, newcomers, well-wishers, and retirees in need of a refresher course – all will find something in this book to inspire them. Finally, this book is meant to give a fresh and favorable second look at distributing books for those who, for whatever reason, now think of it disparagingly.”

Book distribution: Bombing-raid or invasion?

By |May 7th, 2020|

This is a guest post by Caitanya Chandra Dasa. Read more of his writing at www.gettingthemercy.com.

Perhaps the verses and quotations in Sanskrit and Bengali [...]

Door to Door

From Lord Nityananda to Srila Prabhupada and beyond, Vaisnavas have a long tradition of door to door distribution.

Advantages of Door to Door

With a captive audience and great potential to build relationships, visiting people in their homes will always be a powerful way to distribute books.

Monthly Sankirtan

A fun and exciting way to get everyone involved in book distribution!

Monthly Sankirtan Festivals can happen everywhere

As many temples now have fewer temple devotees and more congregational members, this strategy encourages the masses to participate. Even those who can’t go out for book distribution directly can help by offering service or donating Laxmi for the cause.

Smart Box

A Smart Box is a box which is “smart.”

Anyone can be involved in this effort as the time and skills required are minimal. If someone is shy on approaching stores, etc. they can help monitor the boxes, collect funds regularly, or help order and assemble the boxes.
