Quote of the day : Importance of reading books !
Hare Krishna Friends,
Moderator:We all know reading good books is a an essential part of one's intellectual development and Srila Prabhupada always emphasized on this habit of reading. So he gave directive to Bhaktivedanta Book Trust on one such occasion, discussion on Bhagavad Gita Sixteenth Chapter -- June 26, 1976, New Vrindaban
HDG. A.C. BhaktiVedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada
"Our Bhaktivedanta Book Trust, the formula is therefore: as soon as you get money, fifty percent spent for printing and fifty percent for temple. This is the basic principle of our Bhaktivedanta (Book Trust) -- no saving. As soon as you have got some money, print books, print books. Don't keep it. If you print books, some day somebody will read. But if we keep money, it creates disturbance. I am therefore always insisting, "Print books, Print books." Or construct temple, this building, that building. There is no need of keeping money."
