One of the most significant contributions by Srila Prabhupada was His books. He had authored over 140 books, all in the matter of 11 years and translated over sixty volumes of classic Vedic scriptures. This leads to establishment of Bhaktivedanta Book Trust (BBT) in 1972 which is currently the world’s largest publisher of ancient and classic Vaishnava texts, epics, and contemporary works on the philosophy, theology and culture of Bhakti yoga.

Bhagavad Gita or also known as The Song of Supreme Lord had been translated into English and today it is available in over 60 languages around the world and some other books by Srila Prabhupada are available in over 80 different languages. In February 2014, ISKCON’s news agency reported to have reached a milestone of distributing over half a billion books authored by Srila Prabhupada, since 1965.
