1976 Conversations and Morning Walks

No, no, even if he gives away, this is not a fault, you see? Suppose there are... In South Africa many Indians are purchasing our books and giving to the library. So somebody will read it. So that is not a fault. If I purchase from you and give it, distribute it free to somebody else, that is not wrong thing.

Morning Walk -- March 8, 1976, Mayapur:

Prabhupāda: We may differ from other philosophers, but why there should be any difference of philosophy amongst ourselves?

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: There seems to be some philosophical difference.

Prabhupāda: That I am asking. What is that philosophical difference?

Madhudviṣa: One of the points, obvious points, that are there is that many of the boys that are working with Siddha-svarūpa feel more allegiance to Siddha-svarūpa than they do to you.

Prabhupāda: That doesn't matter.

Madhudviṣa: And they distribute his books instead of your books on the street. Which is a fact.

Siddha-svarūpa: Which is a lie.

Madhudviṣa: Which is a fact.

Siddha-svarūpa: Why do you do like that? Why do you say like that?

Madhudviṣa: Because I have seen it in New Zealand. I have been there myself.

Prabhupāda: No, no, if he denies that...

Siddha-svarūpa: You know that they distribute Prabhupāda's books, but they can't give them away as cheaply, that's all.

Madhudviṣa: Back to Godhead is very cheap. It is twelve cents a piece.

Siddha-svarūpa: They give those away. They give those away.

Madhudviṣa: It is twelve cents a piece. You cannot say that.

Siddha-svarūpa: But anyway...

Jayatīrtha: One of Siddha-svarūpa's men bought some Bhagavad-gītās from us in Los Angeles, several cases, so they are distributing Prabhupāda's books at least as well along with others.

Prabhupāda: No, I think...

Siddha-svarūpa: I just bought five thousand dollars' worth of Bhagavad-gītās.

Madhudviṣa: That's very good.

Siddha-svarūpa: What is it for?

Madhudviṣa: And they give them away.

Siddha-svarūpa: Thank you. Thank you, God.

Prabhupāda: No, no, even giving them away, what is the wrong?

Madhudviṣa: Well, you said we should not give the books away. You said we should sell these books.

Prabhupāda: (chuckles) No, no, he has purchased. He has purchased. Then if you purchase from me and if you give free to others, so what is my loss?

Madhudviṣa: No, there is no loss.

Siddha-svarūpa: I'm not giving away his books.

Prabhupāda: No, no, even if he gives away, this is not a fault, you see? Suppose there are... In South Africa many Indians are purchasing our books and giving to the library. So somebody will read it. So that is not a fault. If I purchase from you and give it, distribute it free to somebody else, that is not wrong thing.
