Shastra Daan

Shastra Daan


Print books, distribute profusely, and that will be the best preaching work. What will your three minutes preaching work—But if they buy one book, it may turn their life. (Srila Prabhupada Letter to Bhagavan, 5th November, 1972). 

------------ Message from HH Jayapataka Swami.
