Books Make
Great Gifts! ► December is the time of giving gifts. Are you wondering
what to give to your friends, coleagues, business partners,
relatives, and everyone else? Wonder no more. Give Srila
Prabhupada's books to one and all. What could be a better
gift then a book about Krishna consciousness?

► Giving gifts and charity is greatly beneficial. Acording to

the Vedas, charitable works made with faith and with law-
fully-earned money, procure endless rewards. For example
it is said that a giver of water obtains the satisfaction of his
hunger and thirst, a giver of food imperishable happiness, a
giver of land obtains land, a giver of gold long life, a giver of
a house most excellent mansions, a giver of silver exquisite
beauty, a giver of grain eternal bliss. BUT, a giver of the
Veda obtains spiritual world. The gift of the Veda surpasses
all other gifts, in spiritual and material merits.

► Make yours and others' lives successful: order lots of

books today!
