Amazon.com Makes Devotees


While in Cape Town, South Africa, I heard this amazing story about how several sincere souls in that city become devotees.

Jed was looking into Buddhism and found out about Krsna from one of the books. He purchased a Bhagavad Gita (not Srila Prabhupada’s) and read it, but he couldn’t understand what it was about. He still wanted to know about Krsna though, so he ordered a couple of books from Amazon.com about the life of Krsna (neither of the books he ordered was by Srila Prabhupada).

When he received the books he was surprised that one of them was Bhagavad Gita As It Is. He checked to make sure he hadn’t ordered that book, and sure enough he hadn’t. Amazon.com had goofed (or was it Krsna’s arrangement?). He was getting ready to pack it up and return it to Amazon when he thought, “Well, they sent me the book. I might as well read a bit of it.” So he opened it up and started looking through it. He was surprised to see such nice artwork; his other, non-Prabhupada Gita didn’t have such beautiful illustrations. After studying the artwork, he started reading the Gita, and after only one paragraph he understood that “This is the highest truth.” He located the Cape Town temple and is now Bhakta Jed.
