Many prisons are contacting us with requests for Srila Prabhupada's books, japa beads, CD's and tapes. If you would like to help, please contact Shyama Priya dasi. We need books and donations.
Quotes from inmates:
I had been suffering out of ignorance and due to leading a sinful life. I want to be rescued from this ignorance. I'm trying very hard and as long as I continue to read and chant everyday, I'm beginning to see things clearly-Billy Jones, Amarillo, TX
A few weeks ago I came across an Srimad Bhagavatam, first canto-part two, Creation. The book is from ISKCON. I've been reading it for about 3 weeks. I am truly amazed and humbled at the same time, by it and the Bhagavad-gita As It Is. I did not even know that this level of knowledge and wisdom was even in this world-Tony Boggan, Lucasville, OH
The Pastor Dave Mason, in this jail was kind enough to lend me his personal copy of Bhagavad-gita As It Is, for reading in jail. It is a great solace to me through this very stressful time. I am going through, without it I would go crazy-no kidding-Bhaktin Snehal Diksheet, Battle Creek, MI
