BBT Day 2017

Hare KrishnaBy Bhaktivedanta Book Trust

Our Relationship with Srila Prabhupada’s Books. Srila Prabhupada was concerned that devotees (“centres”) producing his books independently was undermining and potentially threatening the viability of the BBT. · “This must not go on” illustrates an unambiguous desire on his part to stop any printing of his books separate from the BBT. · He stresses that he created the BBT specifically to be the exclusive medium by which his books, lectures, and so on, are to be published and made available. · The BBT has an economic role in funding ISKCON projects. · Diverting revenues elsewhere (by setting up independent printing operations) would undermine the revenue sources for such projects.
