WHY DISTRIBUTE BOOKS?
His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada (1896-1977) is widely regarded as the foremost Vedic scholar, translator, and teacher of the modern era. He is especially respected as the world’s most prominent contemporary authority on bhakti-yoga, devotional service to the Supreme Person, Krishna, as taught by the ancient Vedic writings of India. He is also the founder-acharya of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness.
Srila Prabhupada, as he’s known to his followers, translated and commented on over 80 volumes of the Vedas’ most important sacred bhakti texts, including the Bhagavad-Gita — a concise handbook for understanding the purpose and goal of human life — and the multi-volume Srimad-Bhagavatam — an epic biography of Krishna, Krishna’s avatars, and His many devotees throughout the history of the universe. These books are now available in over 75 languages, with more than 650 million distributed to date.
By reading these spiritually enlivening books, the lives of millions of people have been transformed all around the world. Sharing these spiritual gems is the most important activity of ISKCON and we encourage everyone to please pick up a complimentary copy of Bhagavad Gita on your first visit to ISKCON Jabalpur Temple.
In the spirit of pleasing Srila Prabhupada, ISKCON Jabalpur regularly spends time distributing these spiritual gems.
For example, from previous few years Gita Marathon is held on the occasion of GITA JAYANTI(December) every year.
