A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupäda

In his short arrival speech Śrīla Prabhupāda explained why he was so
urgently pressing his disciples to produce his books.

 ‘I have no personal qualification,’ he had said from the plushly upholstered vyāsāsana, ‘but I simply try to satisfy my guru. That’s all. My Guru Mahārāja asked me that, ‘If you get some money, you print books.’
