Srila Prabhupada Letter to Makhanlal and Tilaka devi, September 24th 1971

“Your proposal for a grhastha travelling sankirtana party is a very good one but the temple work should not be neglected. Both things should go on simultaneously. Our process is to work on bhagavata and pancaratriki systems simultaneously. Deity worship is pancaratriki system and preaching is bhagavata system. If we keep both systems in a regular way that will help us solidly in our advancement in Krsna...

Srila Prabhupada Letter to Damodara, July 1 1970

“I do not know what Kirtanananda Maharaja has told you, but where there is want of pujaris only Panca Tattva picture should be worshipped by performance of kirtana and as soon as Jagannatha or Radha-Krsna Deities are installed you will require some qualified pujaris immediately. If there is a scarcity of such qualified pujaris, each center should be satisfied only by worshiping Panca Tattva of Lord Caitanya by performance of...

Srila Prabhupada Letter to Satsvarupa, 28th May 1970

“As I have already said many times that we have to maintain two lines parallel; namely the path of Srimad-Bhagavatam and the path of pancaratriki. Srimad-Bhagavatam is the path for the paramahamsas, and pancaratra path is for the neophytes. So the temple worship is necessary for the beginners so that by following the regulative principles such devotees become more and more purified and thus gradually come on the platform to...

“At first I must thank you very much for your slides and the viewer which I enjoy whenever I find some time. The pictures of the London temple immediately get me there and I enjoy your company.

Srila Prabhupada Letter to Cidananda, December 15th 1969

“Sankirtana and distributing Back to Godhead and our other literatures is the fieldwork of this movement. Temple worship is secondary. People are invited to come to the temple to see the behaviour of the devotees specifically in the matter of purification. There are two kinds of purification methods, external and internal. In our Krsna consciousness movement, Deity worship helps to keep us externally purified and sankirtana...

Srila Prabhupada Letter to Hamsaduta, 5th September 1969

“In this age, chanting of Hare Krsna mantra is the prime business of the devotee, and preaching of this Hare Krsna mantra by outdoor sankirtana and propagation of literature is our more important business. Side by side, Deity worship is recommended, but when there is a question of accepting one of them, we shall prefer to accept chanting of the Hare Krsna mantra...
