Why take Sankalpa for book distribution? by Tarini Radha Devi Dasi

By Tarini Radha Devi Dasi
 
Sankalpa makes it easy for us to turn to Krishna  in surrender to achieve our goal. And thus two things are achieved-

1. Increased surrender to Krishna
2. Achievement of goal
 
I want to share two incidents that demonstrate this.
 
 *I want to distribute 25 BG in this building* 

I prayed, as I walked up the steps of the LIC office in Pondy Bazaar. Very soon one young man told me to meet Mr. Rajesh in the second floor. Rajesh was not in his seat and I went about the two-floor building, distributing. I checked on Mr. Rajesh again but he still had not returned to his seat. I was disappointed that I could do only 11 BG books instead of the 25 I wanted. Just then the young man came up the steps and anxiously asked me, "Did you meet Mr.Rajesh?". I explained how he was not in his seat. Then he said, "There he is". On the steps, with people walking up and down, I showed Rajesh the BG and he booked 14 books right away. 12 English and 2 Hindi. Total reached - 25!
 
That's the glory of Sankalpa. Krishna fulfills the devotee's desire.
 
 *I will not miss Sunday* 

During one period of my life, my Sankalpa was door to door book distribution every day for one hour or till my books were exhausted. I carried only 15-20 small books in a small bag. 
 
For door to door book distribution, Sunday is best because the men are at home. On other days when only the women are at home they don't come up so easily with the money. If they don't take books, I give them japa cards and request them to chant.
 
One particular Sunday I had a bad head ache. I wondered if I should go on book distribution or just take rest. Since it was a Sunday I did not want to miss the opportunity. So I stepped out.
 
First five houses I knocked on, there was no response.  It was a hot morning, 10am. In the sixth house, a young man came out, made me show all the books I had and _took all the books at one shot!_ 
 
I was back home in fifteen minutes to take rest.
 
Sankalpa helps us do our service to Srila Prabhupada without giving Maya a chance to lure us in her direction. And it opens to us the amazing love of Krishna in fulfilling the desires of his devotees. 
 
Take sankalpa bravely and share with us your realisations of how Krishna helped you achieve your goals. 
 
Going on book distribution is like going out for a walk with Krishna and Srila Prabhupada. Don't miss it!
