“These books and magazines are our most important propaganda weapons to defeat the ignorance of maya’s army, and the more we produce such literature and sell them profusely all over the world, the more we shall deliver the world from the suicide course”, Srila Prabhupada, wrote to Jayadvaita.
“You should always think of new outlets for distributing my books,” Srila Prabhupada wrote to Jagadisa.
And new outlets the devotees found-shopping centers, malls, parking lots. They were meeting more people than ever before.
By entering the malls and shopping centers, the devotees plunged into the heart of America society, meeting pious and impious, rich and poor, black and white.
Book-selling was still difficult, but the devotees preserved, carrying their heavy book bags and distributing the literature they knew could solve all problems.
