These books are like places of pilgrimage for swans. They are only for persons who have some attraction for the spiritual realm. But the most wonderful thing about these books is that even if somebody doesn’t have any attraction, if they get one eleventh of the moment of association with Srila Prabhupada, that attraction can be awakened. That is the great beauty of these books. Although they are made for swan-like persons, by associating with these books even the ugliest crows can become swans.
