29 : A Famous Quote

Just as we learn ślokas, we can learn Prabhupāda stories and passages from Śrīla Prabhupāda’s lectures and books. They are just as powerful and authorized. The following classic is a favorite:

There is no comparison. There is no literature throughout the universe like Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam. There is no comparison. There is no competition. Every word is for the good of the human society. Every word, each and every word. Therefore we stress so much in the book distribution. Somehow or other, if the book goes in one hand, he will benefited. At least he will see, “Oh, they have taken so much price. Let me see what is there.” If he reads one śloka, his life will be successful. If one śloka, one word. This is such nice things. Therefore we are stressing so much, “Please distribute book, distribute book, distribute book.” (Lecture, 5 January 1974)
