This comes courtesy of the latest “Friends of the BBT” newsletter. “Be convinced that you are doing the highest service for your fellow countrymen by distributing books of Krishna consciousness.”
Regarding your standing in the book distribution as number three in the world, I am very pleased that you have worked so hard to help me in carrying out the order of my Guru Maharaja. Be convinced that you are doing the highest service for your fellow countrymen by distributing books of Krishna consciousness. Actually in the west there is now no culture, and no brain even for what is the purpose of life. American civilization is finished, except that it can be saved if it takes to Krishna consciousness. Try to become more convinced of this necessity for Krishna consciousness and that will enable you to preach even stronger and distribute more books.”
