One time we were distributing Arabic Bhagavad-gitas in Beirut during the civil war (1978). Bombs were blowing off everywhere and machine gun fire riddled the buildings around us. We ended up in a very dangerous area of the city, so we ran from door to door like mad trying to distribute as many books as possible and get the hell out of the there. The next day that entire neighborhood was bombed to smithereens. By Krishna’s grace, many of those people purchased a book and saw the picture of Krishna on the front cover and the photo of Srila Prabhupada on the back cover before they left their bodies.
Srila Prabhupada’s causeless mercy ki jaya!
