BOOK DISTRIBUTION MARATHON 2012 – TANZANIA
EVERY TOWN…EVERY VILLAGE
LEG 1: TANGA, DAR-ES-SALAAM, MOROGORO
29TH November 2012
Please accept our humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada. All glories to transcendental Book Distribution.
Hare Krishna! By the mercy of our spiritual master H. H. Gopal Krishna Goswami and the guidance of our Regional Secretary H. G. Umapati Prabhu we have successfully completed Leg 1 of our book distribution tour across Tanzania. We distributed 1305 books including books in Swahili. Breakdown as follows:
Small books: 1020
Medium books: 250
Maha books: 35
Please find photos below. The books were mainly distributed in public libraries, medical institutes, schools, colleges and Universities. Majority of the books, mainly small books in English were distributed to University Students. We also had book stalls set up at Hindu Mandal in Tanga and Shreeji Supermarket in Dar-es-salaam.
Our realization was that people are actually very eager and are searching for the knowledge revealed in Srila Prabhupada’s books. We were welcomed wonderfully everywhere we went and the response from the locals while purchasing or receiving the books was very encouraging for us. We are now preparing for Leg 2.
