If there is any credit to my activities of translating, it is due to His Divine Grace Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura. Certainly if his Divine Grace were personally present at thsi time, it would have been a great occasion for jubiliation, but even though he is not physically present, I am confident that he is very much pleased by this work of translation. He was very fond of seeing many books published to spread the Krishna Consciousness Movement. Therefore our society for Krishna Consciousness Movement. There our Society, The International Society for Krishna Consciousness, has been formed to execute the order of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu and His Divine Grace Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura.
This, our book distribution, is the most important task in our society. Therefore I am giving so much stress and I am working so hard on this because this is my life and soul according to the order of my Guru Maharaja and by his grace it is to some extent successful. I took it seriously. I take it seriously now. That is my life and soul. I never tried in India to Construct big temple or even in your country we didn't. I never tried but i was selling personally books. That is the history.
Our first business is this book distribution. There is no need of any other business. If the book distribution is managed properly, pushed on with great enthusiasm and deremination and at the same time if our men keep spiritually strong, then the whole world will become Krishna conscious. – Letter to: Satsvarupa, Nellore, 5 January, 1976
