"Similarly, the GBC member mens they will see that in every temple these books are very thoroughly being read and discussed and understood and applied in practical life. That is wanter, not to see the vouchers only, "How many books you have sold, and how many books are in the stock?" That is secondary. You may keep vouchers... If one is engages in Krsna's service, the is no need of vouchers. That is... Everyone is doing is best. That's all. So we have to see that things are going on very nicely.
So in that way the GBC members should divide some zones and see very nicely that things are going on, that they are chanting sixteen rounds, and temple management is doing according to the routine work, and the books are thoroughly discussed, being read, understood practically. These things are required. Now suppose you go to sell some book and if somebody says, "You have read this book? Can you explain this verse?" then what you will say? You will say, "No. It is for you. It is not for me. I have to take money from you. That's all." Is that very nice answer?"
