Enhancing the Culture of Reading Srila Prabhupada’s Books
Srila Bhaktivinode Thakura predicted the appearance of Srila Prabhupada for the spreading of Krishna consciousness and Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur confirmed this prophecy on their first meeting by asking Srila Prabhupada to take up preaching. Rupa Gosvami, Sanatana Gosvami and Jiva Goswami empowered Srila Prabhupada by giving him their mercy and guidance for writing and preaching. Srila Prabhupada said Lord Krishna dictated these books to him and they will serve as law-books for the next ten thousand years. Reading Srila Prabhupada’s books gives direct association of Srila Prabhupada and Krsna. Learn the art of reading Srila Prabhupada’s books, individually, collectively and systematically. Let’s bequeath a legacy of reading Srila Prabhupada’s books to the future generations, in order to solve all future generational challenges.
