He sent reports to Prabhupada. Prabhupada would simply amazed. On receiving one report Prabhupada was just shaking his head and just smiling in great pleasure. He said that this devotee is amazingly empowered. This Ghyanashyam. In these communist countries, he was probably the only black person in the entire country. It’s not that he could just blend in, look like everybody else. African people weren’t even allowed in those countries, in most cases. He was the only African person in the countries and he stood out. And he just enthusiastically, he is going through forest and climbing mountains and going to monasteries and meeting people and selling Prabhupada’s entire books sets. And these reports gave so much pleasure to Srila Prabhupada. Srila Prabhupada profusely blessed him, was so grateful to him. He was an inspiration for devotees all over the world, so determined against all odds, taking all risks and he did it blissfully. Soon he was the biggest book distributor. He was getting world aclaimed. People were really inspired by his austerity, by his sadhana, by his preaching, by his service. I was living on a mountain on new Vrindavan in those days, I didn’t even know who the president of the United States was those days. but I heard Ghyanashyam prabhus devotional service, so isolated. But still he was like the sun, his devotional service was like a sun illuminating all directions.
