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]
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]
Bood Written by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada are law books for next 10,000 Years…
Books Should be published and distributed profusely all over the world. Practically, books are the basis of Krishna Consciousness Movement. Without our books, our preaching will have no effect.
"Our Most Important Activity"
"There is no doubt about it: to distribute books is one most important activity. The temple is not a place for eating & sleeping, but a base from which we send out our soldiers to fight with maya. Fight with maya means to drop thousands and millions of books into the lap of conditioned souls. Just like during war time the bombs are raining from the sky like anything." – August 03, 1973 to Ramesvara.
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.
