Quotes by Srila Prabhupada on The Most Important Activity

 
"Our Most Important Activity"
 
"There is no doubt about it: to distribute books is one most important activity. The temple is not a place for eating & sleeping, but a base from which we send out our soldiers to fight with maya. Fight with maya means to drop thousands and millions of books into the lap of conditioned souls. Just like during war time the bombs are raining from the sky like anything." – August 03, 1973 to Ramesvara.
