The Purpose of the Krsna Consciousness Movement


The purpose of the Krsna consciousness movement is not to grow food or produce children. Ir is not to make offices and telephone calls. It is not to fix cars or cut the grass. It is not to program computers, put wires on walls, or build machines. The purpose of the Krsna consciousness movement is to use these things to make and distribute books.


Some may think that "advanced" is when you become a householder, do some moneymaking business, and wor­ship the Deity: but no that vaisya class ,and we want to train up brahmanas. A brahmana knows Brahman, brahma janatiti brahmanah, and he teaches and gives Brahman to others. Brahman is Parabrahman, Krsna, and this Srlmad-Bhagavatam is Krsna. Krsne sva-dhdmopagate dharma. We are distributing Krsna in the Bhagavad-glta, Srlmad-Bhagavatam, and Chaitanya-caritamrta. Don't think that only bhaktas should do book distribution. Besides, if after so many years you are not a bhakta, then what are you? You are in maya. Everybody is a bhakta all the time all the  time . Bhakta means devote of Krasna a devotee of  Krasna is  always interested in distributing these books. Sometimes people say, "If you only produce and distribute msciousness doesn't expand " But we have seen that even if you don't do anything else but distribute books, the movement expands automatically. And if you distribute books and do something else, the movement also expands. But if you do something else and don't distribute books, it doesn't expand at all. Therefore the purpose of everything we do is to expand the book distribution.
