Distribution of books and magazines is our most important activity. Without books, our preaching has no solid basis.- Letter to Cyavana, 26th December, 1971.
Remembrance of Krishna is not possible for the impure soul who has not practiced Krishna consciousness in devotional service. Therefore, one should practice Krishna consciousness from the very beginning of life. If one wants to achieve success at the end of his life, the process of remembering Krishna is essential. Therefore, one should constantly, incessantly chant the Maha-Mantra — Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare. — Bhagavad Gita As it is, 08.05.
The ultimate goal of life is to reach God.
