This month, we would like to shine a spotlight on Abhay Carana Das.
Abhay Carana Dasa is a disciple of HH Kadamba Kanana Swami Maharaj.
In 2018, while renovations were being carried out at the Midrand Temple, he was fortunate to have the deity of Srila Prabhupada reside in his home for 6 months. During that time his bond with Srila Prabhupada strengthened as he served him.
When it was time for Prabhupada to leave to ISKCON Midrand he was devastated. He wondered how he could continue to serve his most dear Srila Prabhupada. That was when he found inspiration in Srila Prabhupada’s books. Reading and distributing Srila Prabhupada’s books gave him an opportunity to continue serving Srila Prabhupada. By the blessings of his spiritual master and the mercy of Srila Prabhupada he was able to put together an initiative that distributed two hundred and fifteen Bhagavad Gita’s this year during Gita week.
He takes inspiration in the following letter to Bali Mardana of New York, where Srila Prabhupada wrote, “The real preaching is selling books. You should know the tactic of how to sell without irritating. What your lecture will do for three minutes, but if he reads one page, his life may be turned”.
So, in this spirit, let us distribute Srila Prabhupada’s books to everyone!
