Srila Gurudeva: We should therefore distribute the books.
Book distribution is not aropa-siddha-bhakti or sanga-siddha-bhakti. If it were either, then why did our predecessor acaryas, like Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura and Srila Rupa Gosvami, write books? Why did Srila Rupa Gosvami tell Srila Jiva Gosvami to print and distribute these books?
And why did Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu do so? On His trip to south India, Mahaprabhu found Brahma-samhita and Krsna-karnamrta in the form of handwritten texts. Knowing them to be authoritative, He took them with Him to present to His devotees, and requested them to copy and distribute them.
Please be most welcome to participate in this year’s Book Fair in New Delhi, especially those of you whose heart and soul is right there with the distribution of Srila Gurudeva’s transcendental books.
The Book Fair will take place from August 23rd till 31st in Pragati Maidan.
We will be so happy to have your association; moreover, it will be our pleasure to assist you in each and every way.
We provide free transportation to and fro the Book Fair, sumptuous prasadam and boarding in our Sri Raman Bihari Guest House.
