Distribution of books and magazines is our most important activity. Without books, our preaching has no solid basis.- Letter to Cyavana, 26th December, 1971.
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.
Bood Written by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada are law books for next 10,000 Years…
Books are the basis of our Movement. Without our books, our preaching will have no effect.
That is my ideal of life, to form a nice group of devotees to perform Sankirtana and to distribute our books in wider circles.
