Srila Prabhupada's Books
by Ravinder Sihra
His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada's books should be given top priority in all ISKCON Temples that exist on this planet.
I strongly feel that each ISKCON temple should have the complete works of His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada and should have these displayed in the best manner possible in the temple reception area or the temple shop. This should be the main section, and all other books, tapes, videos, etc., by other devotees should be kept separate from the main section.
All devotees should encourage other devotees and visitors to read Srila Prabhupada books. How many devotees have read all of Srila Prabhupada's books? How many devotees have complete understanding of this higher knowledge after reading all of Srila Prabhupada's books? I once met a devotee from India who knew the complete Bhagavad-Gita by heart but this is a very rare case.
Maharajas, I feel, should be encouraging everyone to read Srila Prabhupada's books and not keep introducing their own books, and if they do, please keep them away from the main section. New visitors should be introduced to the main section. After all, no other books are going to be in the same class as Srila Prabhupada's books.
At present, I find that Srila Prabhupada's works are not properly displayed in some temples, and there are so many new books, tapes, etc., by maharajas and other devotees that are cropping up so fast and taking a large part of the display section.
For higher knowledge, lets all read and encourage others to read Srila Prabhupada's books.
