Books are the basis of our movement. Whatever appreaciation we are getting on account of our books, it is because we are following the path chalked out by exalted devotees. We are not writing something whimsical.
This book distribution was my Guru Maharaja's purpose. He said that I have got so many temples and now in Calcutta I have got a marble temple, but I would have wished that if by selling marbles I could publish and distribute books.
[Letter to Ramesvara 14 Nov 1975]
Thank you very much for your sincere endeavors to distribute my books widely. If you continue with such desire and determination, Krishna will give you all strength to increase more and more. – Letter to: Srutadeva, Bombay, 16 January, 1975.
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
Our first business is this book distribution. There is no need of any other business. If the book distribution is managed properly, pushed on with great enthusiasm and deremination and at the same time if our men keep spiritually strong, then the whole world will become Krishna conscious. – Letter to: Satsvarupa, Nellore, 5 January, 1976
