A number of motel owners in the USA have decided to include the Bhagavad-gita in their next-to-the-bed drawer along with Gideons Bible. Here's a few comments:
"I got my first Gita in a hotel room and ever since I read the first verse my life has been ever increasingly in Krsna Consciousness. Life is a journey back to Krsna. Peace..." — Terrence, a guest who read the Bhagavad-gita at a motel in CA
"We have replaced many Bhagavad Gitas in the room that the guests have taken along with them."
— Jitubhai Patel, owner Holiday Inn, Ukiah, CA
"I have developed respect for the Hindu culture now that I have read and understood a little about it."
— Vivian Browne, Guest at Rodeway Inn at Monrovia,CA
"The Bhagavad-gita is a profound literature. I thank the motel authorities who allowed me this opportunity. It has helped me to understand who am I and what is this life about. Life is much happier and less stressful. I still cant believe my luck. Thank you!"
— Jon Rodriguez, Guest who dropped a complimentary Thank You letter at Best Western, Memphis
"This is very interesting. I curiously picked up this new book lying besides the bible and I found it very nice. It has so much depth. I have taken a copy along with me and will certainly read everything. It has opened a new horizon, hitherto unexplored by me."
— Andrew Spencer, Guest at Howard Johnson, Houston
"People here are very inquisitive and would always like to try new and different things. Hence, I kept Bhagavad-gita at both my motels. I see that the guests like it too."
— B Patel, Motel Owner, San Francisco, CA
"I often see guests coming in for breakfast with Bhagavad-gita in hand and reading it while they are in the lobby or in the reception room. It is satisfying to know that I have contributed in spreading this knowledge."
— Nilesh P, Manager, Super 8, Sacramento
"One of our guest, a middle age lady, approached me at the reception counter and asked me if she could take the Bhagavad-gita along with her. She said that she picked up this book (Bhagavad-gita) just out of curiousity as she was not able to sleep at night. After reading it she found it so profound that she could just not put it down. I gladly allowed her to take the Bhagavad-gita along."
— Dilip Patel, Manager, See Breeze, Pacifica, CA.
