In a country of 10.5 million people and 40 universities, the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) Dominican Republic has surely been making its mark, getting the spiritual wisdom and teachings of Krishna-bhakti into the top libraries in the country. 

ISKCON Dominican Republic has begun a library book distribution group called: “The Study Circle”, this year. The group is formed of Vidyabhusana Das, Mukunda Madhava Das, Syam Krishna Gopal Das, and Yogavit Das. The core team has been busy in the capital city of Santa Domingo getting the books by A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami, into university and public libraries. The main books being distributed are Bhagavad-gita As It Is, Srimad Bhagavatam (the ten-volume collection), Coming Back, Beyond Birth and Death, The Science of Self-Realization, The Teachings of Lord Kapila, and cookbooks published by the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust (BBT).
