Dear ISKCON Leaders and Devotees,
Please accept our humble obeisances. All glories to Śrīla Prabhupāda.

“Books Are the Basis Week” festival is being celebrated between 22nd -28th September 2021, i.e. immediately after the Bhadra Purnima Festival on 21st September. Please mark it in your calendar.

We want you to please make the announcement to as many devotees as you know. This is the only way we can create grass root level awareness amongst devotees. We need your help for this.

Let us invoke auspiciousness by hearing from our beloved Srila Prabhupada: I am laboring so hard for you, but you don’t take advantage.

This year, every day of the festival week, we will share a panel discussion from leaders of a different continent. They will discuss how to increase the reading of Srila Prabhupada books. And in return we want all of you to conduct your own panel discussions and share with us.

How to celebrate the festival and all the necessary resources are available here.

Please participate yourself and encourage the leaders in your regions to also to do the same.

We want to hear from you about how it unfolds in your region. Share your experience on the telegram group. Every single word glorifying the benefits of reading Srila Prabhupada’s books can inspire many others. So as the old saying goes – “sharing is caring”.

If you want to help us with the festival then you can join the team of volunteers here.

Kindly help us spread the word to inspire devotees to read Srila Prabhupada’s books every day.

Please contact us and join our team if you feel inspired.
We thank you for your support.

Your servant,
Tapana Miśra dāsa
Ministry of Education, ISKCON
