In the News:
Give Krishna to Soldiers
Posted August 4, 2007
Aristide distributes Bhagavad-gitas to Army Chaplains and Chapplain assistants. He gives them a few copies to give to the soldiers who are looking to read the Bhagavad-gita. He also gives them out to anyone who sees him reading his and asks about it. "I try to be a good devotee through my service and example." says Aristide.
Though the Department of Defense has authorized the recruitment of "Hindu" Chaplains since 1998, they have yet to attract any. It is Aristide's dream to become the first.
Currently Aristide distributes the soft bound Bhagavad-gitas because that is what he can afford, but the vinyl Bhagavad-gitas would certainly be much better as they are more convientient and can fit in soldiers' uniform pockets.
Please note that many Christian groups print and distribute to US soldiers vinyl Bibles of the same dimensions like our vinyl Bhagavad-gita. Certainly we can then distribute Bhagavad-gitas.
