Srila Prabhupada greatly emphasized the distribution of spiritual literature such as Bhagavad-gita, Srimad Bhagavatam and several other Vedic scriptures. The books written and translated by Srila Prabhupada are our biggest treasure and asset. Those who participate in this important service of book distribution are sure to experience the ecstasy of this service.
“Simply by giving aural reception to this Vedic literature, the feeling for loving devotional service to Lord Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, sprouts up at once to extinguish the fire of lamentation, illusion and fearfulness.” (Srimad Bhagavatam 1.7.7)
“Every day and night we are hearing something. There is television. There is radio. There are newspapers. There are so many things to hear about. But that is not the hearing that will help us to become self-realized. You should devote your time to hearing and chanting about Vishnu, Krishna. If you simply do this then you shall become free from this material entanglement.” – Srila Prabhupada Dec’ 66
