Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
I hope everyone had a successful 2003 Prabhupada marathon, we'll get the results in a few weeks. One nice thing about our transendental book distribution competition is that everyone is a winner. Someone may go out to distribute and give everything he has, although there may not be much result he gets the reward of Krsna's satisfaction and thus his own.
Another nice aspect of the marathon is that because there has been so much absorption in book distribution one's realizations about book distribution increases and thus his conviction and determination to distribute goes beyond his previous understanding.
