1970, July 29: Established the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust:
To widely, effectively and steadily share spiritual wisdom through books, Srila Prabhupada established the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust (BBT). And he provided the trust books with amazing speed.
While the world slept, he would wake up after just a few hours of sleep to speak his purports into a dictaphone. that his disciples would transcribe, edit and publish. During his days he would be busy speaking about Krishna to the people who came to meet him, and during his nights he would be busy speaking about Krishna to the people who hadn’t come to meet him – by writing books for them.
Today the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust has become the world’s biggest publisher of Vedic spiritual books having produced over 500 million books in over 70 languages that have been distributed in over 100 countries.
