These books are so potent that anyone who reads them is sure to become krishna Conscious, so it is a very valuable service to distribute our books.
This is a sure sign of spiritual strength, for where there is preaching there must be life. Please go on increasing more and more book distribution. You are working in the right direction.
[Letter to Abhirama 9 Jan 1976]
So I am always emphasizing book distribution. It is the better kirtana. It is better than chanting. Of course chanting should not stop, but book distribution is the best kirtana.
[Letter to Srutadeva Dasa 24 Oct 1974]
Book distribution is also chanting. These books I have recorded and chanted and they are transcribed. It is spoken kirtanas. So book distribution is also chanting. These are not ordinary books. It is recorded chanting. Anyone who reads, he is hearing. Book distribution must not be neglected. – Letter to: Rupanuga: Mayapur, 19 October, 1974, Atlanta.
Books are the basis of our Movement. Without our books, our preaching will have no effect.
BOOKS ARE THE BASIS
