Most of today’s population is covered by the material modes of ignorance and passion. Absorbed in material life, they think themselves very happy and satisfied,. But in reality they are suffering from miseries like birth, desease, old age and death. It is only by knowledge of the Absolute Truth that people can become free of their suffering and repeated cycle of birth and death. There are so many universities, so many libraries, so many books, so many web sites—so much information available today. But where is the knowledge by which a person can be freed of ignorance and attain full satisfaction? That knowledge is found in the teachings of His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupāda in the form of his books.
In the year 1935, Srila Prabhupada’s spiritual master told him, “If you ever get money, print books.” Srila Prabhupada felt the words deeply enter in his life. He always stressed this point and with the help of his disciples he published many books in English which includes the commentary on Indian classics like Bhagavad-gita, Srimad Bhagavatam and Chaitanya Charitamrita.
In 1970, Srila Prabhupada founded the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust (BBT), which is now the world’s largest publisher of Vedic literature. Srila Prabhupada wanted his books to be translated in all languages and today they are available in more than 80 languages.
Srila Prabhupada greatly emphasized the distribution of spiritual literature such as Bhagawad-Gita, Srimad Bhagavatam and several other Vedic scriptures saying “These books are so potent that anyone who reads them is sure to become Krishna conscious, so it is valuable service to distribute this transcendental books".
Following his instructions, the devotees very enthusiastically approach the public and inspire them to take this valuable knowledge. They organize various camps or go door to door to distribute these books. There is very good response, yes it does involve certain hardships but the devotees joyfully accept being very eager to provide these great books of time-less Vedic wisdom to everyone.
