On the Library Party that was started by his Holiness Satswarup Gosvami maharaja and many of the most exalted devotees of ISKCON were on that library party. One in particular was his Holiness Bhakti Tirthi Swami maharaja. During Prabhupada's time his name was Ganashyam prabhu. And he was whether in America going to Europe and then during communist times behind the iron curtain he was distributing sets of Prabhupada’s books, standing orders because in those days many of Srila Prabhupada's books were not yet published, not even yet translated and Srila Prabhupada was so overjoyed with all those devotees who were actually distributing entire sets of his books. And we know the beautiful story when Srila Prabhupada met Bhakti Tirtha Swami Maharaj in London, he embraced him and he cried and he thanked him he said “thank you your life is perfect” and Srila Prabhupada wasn't only embracing and crying in appreciation of Bhakti Tirthi Swami Maharaja but just as Arjuna was taking Krishna was instructing him to instruct us, we can take it that Srila Prabhupada is actually crying in gratitude and embracing all devotees, for all time to come, who are going through sacrifices and even taking risks to share Srila Prabhupada's very life and soul with the world. The Shrimad-Bhagavatam and the holy names of Krishna. What a incredible rare inconceivable opportunity it is, that's what book distribution is about and this particular effort of book distribution to distribute entire sets of Shrimad-Bhagavatam is extraordinary and so very very special.
