What to say when selling books

Gopinath Acharya das:

Deepak prabhu introduced me to Srila Prabhupada and said, “Oh, this is Gopinath Acharya das. He is one of our leading book distributors.” So Srila Prabhupada was actually very interested; and he turned his head very regally, he looked at me and asked me what I said to sell the books. So I mumbled and fumbled something to the effect that, “Oh, Srila Prabhupada, I just tell them it’s about yoga. They think it’s about exercises and like that.”

Srila Prabhupada thought very pensively for 30 seconds or so and he said, “You should tell  people that these books will solve the problems of life and help reduce the miseries of life.”

PS  More good news on the sankirtan van, we would like to thank Tara das (my long time  friend) for donating $108. That makes it $4,208 we’re gradually making it to the $20,000 goal.

your servant,
Vijaya das
