I want that you all my students, shall very vigorously try for this book distribution.
The Greatest Welfare Activity for All the people of this World.
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.
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 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]
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.
