Srila Prabhupada’s most significant contribution is his books. Highly respected by scholars for their authority, depth and clarity, they are used as textbooks in numerous college courses. His writings have been translated into over eighty languages .the Bhakthivedanta Book trust, established in 1972 to publish the works of his divine grace, has thus became the world’s largest publication of books in the field of Indian religion, Vedic philosophy and culture.
Srila Prabhupada always insisted his disciples on increasing the book distribution. No other activity satisfies Srila Prabhupada than the distribution of his books.
Prabhupada has written more than 70 volumes of Vedic literatures. His best works are the Bhagavad gita as it is and the 18 volume of Srimad Bhagavatam. In which the Bhagavad gita is the philosophical basis for the Hare Krishna movement.
Prabhupada’s books are distributed by his disciples all over the world. Accordingly ISKCON RAJAHMUNDRY is also distributing Prabhupada books to a good number.
Prabhupada says the temples which are good at book distribution, will have Krishna’s mercy full and thereby flourish well.
In order to change this materialistic society and prevent them from gliding to hell, first thing is to educate them. All decent men want to give service to humanity, only thing is they do not have information really what is that service. Hospitals, feeding the poor, Red cross these are service to the bodies only not to man. Service to humanity means jnana. By giving people knowledge, jnana, that is the highest service to humanity. So we are performing the actual welfare work of society by informing everyone through our literature who is God, who they are, and what is the relationship. In this way everyone who hears our message gets the opportunity to fulfill his actual position as human entity and become delivered from the clutches of Maya.
