Srila Prabhupada's book distribution marathon is that time when hundreds of temples around the globe bring the holiday spirit alive by channeling their energy to sharing and distributing as many gifts as possible with the public. This may be in the form of a book, mantra card, lollypop, cookies, carolling, or just a smile!
Our target is steep and it gets steeper each year. We need over 20,000 books to meet our goal of 50,000 for the year 2013. It is no small feat. Your generous contribution each year, in line with our marathon slogan of, “EVERYONE Matters, Every BIT Counts”, has helped in many ways, including placing over thousands of these books in various shelters, hotels, and prisons in the GTA. Please continue to enthusiastically support us this season in our attempts to share this ancient and spiritual wisdom with all. There are many ways in which you can assist us- you can join forces with our teams heading out, set up book tables at prominent festivals, events and gatherings in your community or sponsor books. For further information, please speak to a friendly person at our book table.
Spoilers alert: Watch out for our beloved walking Bhagavad Gita!!
