The Weekend Warriors hit the streets again, but this time they ventured to another country. All in a days work. Luxemburg was the target. Unfortunately, it was one of the coldest days in January, but they were inspired to brave the weather for the greater mission of spreading Sri Krishna’s glories.
The group was led by Viswajit Dasa, a first-year college student and the regular organizer of such events. Those new to book distribution and the regulars cautiously entered the city, but once their car was parked, an enthusiasm was ignited that endured for the rest of the short, sweet afternoon.
Krsna Dasa, a second-year student, had his first experience of a feeling of being Krishna’s instrument in Srila Prabupada’s mission of grass-roots Krishna consciousness. He told those he stopped that he was working for a peace organization.
For Nimai, also a year-two student, book distribution is something like a magician’s act. He is often found with a group of spectators encircling him, usually old ladies or school children.
Our team of ladies worked hard: two college students and two visiting Swedish devotees (a mother and a daughter — Diana, only 12 –) scouring the streets for interested people.
After a few hours in the cold, the distributors went back to the car and headed to a nearby namahatta program, where they had time to reflect on their day’s work while singing devotional songs for the assembled members. Then they quickly ate some tasty prasad and jetted back to Radhadesh before the moon came out.
