I was out in a very rich area of Dublin called "Howth" a seaside town, every house has a long driveway and a boat parked to the side to complete the status image. At one particular house a man answered the door, he looked at me and said "I'm not interested." I said, "Look, this is a book written by a multi-millionaire who gave up everything to live under a tree and write spritual books for the upliftment of mankind! You may ask, why would someone do that? Would you like to find out?" The man replyed, "Well, in that case, yes, I would." He took the book (The nectar of devotion) and gave a nice donation.
A similar incident happened at another house that evening...a women answered the door, she had skin cancer on her right arm she was in a lot of discomfort, she didnt want a book, she was old (70's at least). I asked her if she was vegetarian. She wasn't. I said, "This will improve your health," I put a Higher Taste on the ledge next to her. She gave a generous donation so I also gave her a Science of Self Realisation. She said, "Well in that case!" And gave me another donation, so I gave her another book (Teachings of Lord Caitanya). We both started to laugh, it was a special way to end the encounter (Lord Caitanyas Mercy).
At a recent Sunday feast in Dublin a first time visitor said to me, "You ride a pedal bike dont you?" I said, "Yes, how do you know?" He told me he seen me in the cross channel ferry terminal to England with my bike and told me I had sold him a book. As a result he came to the feast and brought fiveof his friends!
