Bhagavatam On Credit
Posted February 26, 2004
Not sure whether this has been done before but I was wondering about people receiving the Srimad Bhagavatam (and other writings of Srila Prabhupada) on credit. It seems these days just about everyone is purchasing on credit. "Own it now, pay for it later" seems to appeal to many people.
How inviting would it be for visitors to be told they can take the entire Srimad Bhagavatam home today and pay it off within twelve (or twenty four) interest free monthly payments.
Not many people come to the temple with $300 in their pocket but they may agree to pay just $25 per month for twelve months to pay it off. Of course it would cost a little more to cover the administrative costs but how hard would it be to send someone a bill once per month?
And because we are not a money hungry finance company there would be no interest charged ever however they would sign an agreement that it shall be paid within twelve or twenty four months.
Just a thought.
