What is Shastra Daan?
The Shastra Dana project, which means ‘the gift of scriptures’, gives the opportunity to get close to Lord Krishna by sharing the gift with everyone, the knowledge of the Bhagvad Gita and Bhakti Yoga. These books will be placed in a Smart Box which allows people to pick up the books they like and also donate at their discretion.
How is the Shastra distributed?
