"Every one of you. What is your realization? You write your realization ?what you have realized about Krishna. That is required. It is not passive. Always you should be active. Whenever you find time, write. Never mind ?two lines, four lines, but you write your realizations. Sravanam, kirtanam.
Writing or offering prayers, glories ?this is one of the functions of a Vaisnava. You are hearing, but you have to write also. Then, writing means smaranam ?remembering what you have heard from your spiritual master."
- By Shrila Prabhupada Los Angeles 1970

Jaya Pranaams Srila Prabupada ki Jaya!! this is such a nice quote. when we write and share our understandings then we more deeply imbibe them ourself. Often our acaryas state that they write their books for self purification out of their deep humility but actually when we write then that is a fact. we are indeed preaching to ourselves!

Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! Yes. Thank you. Shrila Prabhupada was a staunch follower of his own Gurudeva, who established writing and publishing as the Brihad Mridanga or the Big Drum. He imbibed this teaching of Shrila Bhaktisiddhanta Prabhupada very deeply and passed it on to his followers. The importance of writing and publishing gets diluted due to the influence of Kali Yuga but it is single-most powerful medium to spread Bhakti and Holy Names all over the world.
