About a week before Gita Jayanti, one devotee in Bombay went out to distribute Srimad Bhagavad Gita.
At one place, he knocked the door but no one replied. He did not give up and again knocked the door, still it was unanswered. With firm determination to distribute Bhagavad Gita, he again knocked with a much greater force. At this time a lady angrily opened the door and shouted, “What do you want? I am very busy with important work” and tried to close the door. But as she was closing the door this devotee put his foot between the door in such a way that she could not close it and he immediately put Bhagavad Gita in her hand. Just by touching Srimad Bhagavad Gita, this lady felt relaxed and calmed down.
Then she enquired from the devotee about Bhagavad Gita and he explained to her the difference between the body and the soul according to chapter two. She then told the devotee that the “important work” she was busy , with was to commit suicide. She showed him the table, the fan and the rope hanging from the fan. It was only by the mercy of Sri Krsna and his devotee that she was saved from such a dangerous situation. Now she is a devotee and is associated with ISKCON temple in Bombay.
