Srila Prabhupada’s Confidence in his Books
Last night Dhananjaya dasa reminded us of your confidence in your literary solution to the problem of spiritual institutions surviving in the material world. You told him that even if all the GBCs, temple presidents, and pujaris leave your mission, your books are everywhere, and consequently some sincere soul will read them and know exactly how to start the Hare Krsna movement again. You urged that your disciples strive to get the reward for assisting you, but then you declared that even if we fail you, someone else will certainly arise in the future, just by reading your books, and get the credit.
