Svayam Sphuraty Krishna das

Dear Prabhuji and Matajis,
Hare Krishna. Please accept my humble obeisences. All glories to Srila Gurudev and Srila Prabhupada.

Here is a nice punch by Srila Prabhupada on reading the scriptures, particularly, BBC (Bhagavad-gita, Bhagavatam, Caitanya-caritamrta, and others):

"All the devotees connected with the Krishna consciousness movement must read all the books that have been translated (the Bhagavad-gita, Bhagavatam, Caitanya-caritamrta, and others); otherwise, after some time they will
simply eat, sleep and fall down from their position. Thus they will miss the opportunity to attain an eternal and blissful life of transcendental pleasure." (purport to Cc. madhya 25.278)

Your aspiring servant
