Books Are The Basis Week 2022


Let us invoke auspiciousness for this Books Are The Basis Week festival by hearing from our beloved Srila Prabhupada in this instructional video
“I am laboring so hard for you, but you don’t take advantage.”


His Holiness Bhanu Swami, the GBC Chairman, urges Temple presidents and leaders around the world to encourage members of their communities to regularly read Srila Prabhupada’s books.

Welcome Address by the Minister of Education

Conscious Reading – Our offering to you

Conscious Reading is based on Srila Prabhupada’s instructions regarding reading His Divine Grace’s books. It was written with the express purpose of making the daily reading of Prabhupada’s books an achievable goal for all devotees. Watch the video below to hear more from our Minister

“The book is a great impetus to read Śrīla Prabhupāda’s books. It has many tips about those who have a reading block, how to establish reading as a habit, as something integrated with your life. I think that devotees would get an endless benefit from reading this book. By reading it, any obstacle they face can be solved.”

Jayapataka Swami
