Andrew Firestone Gets Srila Prabhupada’s Original Bhagavad Gita
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, star of the famous “Kung-fu” television series.
Andrew was very pleased to receive something “spiritual,” and the inscription pointed his attention to the following verse:
“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.” (Bhagavad-gita 6:41)
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 [Srila Prabhupada] can save one from the greatest danger.
The crew all took prasadam at the end of shooting.
