This, our book distribution, is the most important task in our society. Therefore I am giving so much stress and I am working so hard on this because this is my life and soul according to the order of my Guru Maharaja and by his grace it is to some extent successful. I took it seriously. I take it seriously now. That is my life and soul. I never tried in India to Construct big temple or even in your country we didn't. I never tried but i was selling personally books. That is the history.
Book Distribution is our real business. If we give them a record, they simply hear some magical sounds and take it for sense gratification, but if they receive one of our books and read even one page, they get eternally benefited. – Letter to Ajita, 6 January, 1975
Regarding Sankirtana and book distribution, book distribution is also chanting. Anyone who reads the books that is also chanting and hearing. Why distinguish between chanting and book distribution? These books I have recorded and chanted, and they are transcribed. It is spoken kirtanas. So book distriburtion is also chanting. These are not ordinary books. It is recorded chanting. Anyone who reads, he is hearing. Book distribution must not be neglected.
The result show that there is no limit to our book distribution. Our books are qualified to be distributed unlimitedly.
Books are the basis of our Movement. Without our books, our preaching will have no effect.
Actually, this book distribution is most important, and you have pleased me very mucg. Just go on and flood the whole world with these Krishna books.
[Letter to Bali-mardana 8 Aug 1973]
