|If you chant always Hare Krishna, read my books, and preach this philosophy sincerely, then Krishna will provide you with all facility, and you will not fall down into material entanglement.
|English translation of Caitanya Caritamrta by Nogen Roy have been seen by me. There is no commentary and therefore it can be read.

|Please don't feel lonely. Krishna is always with you and I shall pray for you and to Krishna also that you may make progress more and more in this faithful discharge of duties in Krishna Consciousness.

|So far BTG, for the time being, it will be printed in Japan, so we do not require an extra hand for that purpose. At first we shall print just our books, and then if successful, we shall take to printing to the extent of 5000 copies of BTG per month.
|My Guru Maharaja advised me to give more stress on publication work so most probably I shall try to concentrate my energy in this department very shortly.
|If you kindly help me in distributing these books and literature, it will be a very great help for my missionary activities. You are working as sales organizer so you can think up this sales organization side by side, and if possible try to help.
|I am just trying to write my books, Srimad-Bhagavatam, Nectar of Devotion, and Krishna, and lately Vedanta Sutra. So certainly this is heavy task but by the Grace of Krishna, it does not depress me. I feel encouraged to act so busily day and night.
|This material body can be adjusted with practice. If we adjust these bodily activities towards Krishna's side, then the labor is fruitful, but if we adjust towards maya's side, then the labor is useless.
|A little labor done for Krishna is never lost. But the greatest labor done for Maya is simply waste of time. So I think by the Grace of Krishna you are feeling nice now. Please try to work hard for Krishna, and your life will be glorious.
|I am very much hopeful that Krishna Kirtana will be nicely introduced in the Western world by the Grace of Krishna, and by the efforts of our ISKCON DEVOTEES.
|Our only hope is books and literature. So we have to start press, and for that purpose, and publish varieties of books and literature for getting some financial help as well as propagating our mission.

|All the preachers of Krsna consciousness movement, they are maha-bahu, strongly armed by the weapons of Krsna. They cannot be defeated. They will push on the fight with maya, this illusion.

|He has taken to the shelter of Kṛṣṇa, therefore his all past business is finished. Although, due to past habit, sometimes you find some mistake, it is not to be taken. Because this thing will go.
1975 - March 30
|Hari, the Supreme Personality of Godhead is like the moon. So we established this temple, Mayapura-candrodaya. So this is the idea, that Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu is just like moon.
|The divine nature of Krsna's appearance, disappearance and activities, if one can understand, then immediately he becomes free from this process.
1977 - March 30
|Your proposal for arranging a Gita on tapes in different languages for distributing all over the world is very good.
|Sooner or later we have to give up this body, but a Vaisnava may live or die for in either case he is always serving his Lord Krishna.
