Vip Gets Bhagavad-Gita
USA, Apr 30 (VNN) Andrew Firestone, heir to the Firestone tire family, and heart-throb star of the television reality show, The Batchelor, was the recipient of a Bhagavad-gita from ITV's Nrsimhananda dasa at the Pyramid House in Topanga.
E entertainment, a nightly show-biz program broadcast nationwide, was taping an interview with resident, Kansas Carradine, daughter of veteran Hollywood actor, David Carradine. Andrew was very pleased to receive something spiritual, and the inscription pointed his attention to the following verse:
BG 6:41 The unsuccessful yogi, after many many years of enjoyment on the planets of the pious living entities, is born into a family of righteous people, or into a family of rich aristocracy. We pray that Andrew, a very nice young man, takes full advantage of his real good fortune…a moment's association with the pure devotee can save one from the greatest danger. The crew all took prasadam at the end of shooting.
