“You should read all this. You don’t read. In the first volume of Bhagavata these things are explained. But I don’t think you read all these things. Do you read? So if you don’t read, then you will feel restless: “Oh, let me go from Japan to India, from India to Japan.” You are restless because you don’t read. I am laboring so hard for you, but you don’t take advantage.
Don’t take advantage of eating and sleeping. Take advantage of these books.
Then your life will be successful. My duty — I have given you so valuable things, day and night trying to convince you, each word to word. And if you don’t take advantage of this, then what can I do for you?”
– Srimad-Bhagavatam 2.9.14 Class — Melbourne, April 13, 1972
