A Systematic Attack on Maya
One can only understand the Supreme when one follows in the footsteps of one who has achieved the Supreme. This Krsna consciousness movement follows in Shrila Prabhupada's footsteps, because we know that he has obtained Krsna and can give us Krsna. That is why we study Shrila Prabhupada's books and distribute them to others. Even if we did nothing else, this book distribution alone would transform the world. Srlmad-Bhagavatam says that it is meant to spark off a revolution in the hearts of the neople within a misdirected civilization. We are launching a systematic attack on mdyd, like termites go into wood, so that mdyd cracks from within. When termites burrow into a piece of wood, they permeate everywhere, eating out little holes here and there throughout. Then one day somebody steps on the piece of wood and it cracks into pieces. Everyone is bewildered because the piece of wood looked so strong, but suddenly it was finished. And then they realize that the termites had been eating it all the time, but nobod"17 knew because thev could not be seen. Thus all of '^<ir little Krsna conscious termites can defeat the material energy and make the real revolution by going out and eating away at the mdyd of this material world bv distributing books.
