The department also operate bookstalls in the Temple hall and campus. A group of senior devotees in the department cultivate people who buy books. The book distribution marathon during December is an important annual feature of this department. It was first started in 1992 by the combined efforts of HG Naresvara Prabhu from BBT, HH Jayapataka Swami, HH Bhakti Caru Swami and HH Bhakti Purusottama Swami.

Srila Prabhupada presents Krishna consciousness in a very simple and practical way in his books. His spiritual master, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saravati Thakur referred to distribution of Krishna conscious books as Brihad Mridanga, the greater drum and instructed Srila Prabhupada to print books whenever he got money. In accordance with that instruction Srila Prabhupada wanted books to be distributed in every town and village.

I don’t want money, or anything else, I simply want to see that my books are being distributed – Srila Prabhupada.

Param vijayate Sri Krishna Sankirtan Ki jay!

Srila Prabhupada Ki Jay!
