This is GITA GOVINDA DEVI mataji from Japan.

In the 80’s and 90’s she was one of the top three book distributors in the world.

Altogether she sold over half a million books and magazines.

On the streets, putting them into the hands of people, in exchange for their willing donations.

When asked about her secret, she explained that “quantity depends on quality, and quality depends on purity, so all we need is A SINCERE DESIRE to please Guru and Krishna, and to truly benefit the people we meet.”

OVER HALF A MILLION BOOKS! Just by one shy and modest woman.

We may forget our quiet heroes, but her guru, Srila Prabhupada, and Krishna won’t. She miraculously manifested Lord Caitanya’s power and therefore she is worshipable.
