Hare Krishna. Please accept our humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada. All glories to the Sankirtan Devotees.
We are pleased to report Gaurabda 522 Cumulative Book Distribution Scores for Temples Category for the month beginning April-08 and ending October-08. The Gaurabda year ends on March 2009 with just another 5 months to go. Sri Jagannatha Mandir, ISKCON Kuala Lumpur is now leading with a score of having distributed 4624 Books and matching 2127.5 Book Points. Buntong though in the Nama Hatta category is probably the most steady in book distribution.
A total of 17,526 Books have been distributed by all temples. With another 5 months to go ISKCON Malaysia will need to distribute another 8,860 books to match the previous year score of 26,386 Books. We look forward to do better this year.
…. There is no literature throughout the universe like Çrémad-Bhägavatam. 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 be benefited. At least he will see, “Oh, they have taken so much price. Let me see what is there.” If he reads one çloka, his life will be successful. If one çloka, one word. This is such nice things. Therefore we are stressing so much, “Please distribute book, distribute book, distribute book.” A greater mådaìga. We are chanting, playing our mådaìga. It is heard within this room or little more. But this mådaìga will go home to home, country to country, community to community, this mådaìga. ……….(Srila Prabhupada Srimad Bhagavatam 1.16.18, Lecture at Los Angeles, January 5 1974)
