There is no need of printing books

Prabhupāda: So everything will be nice, provided you become ideal. Live in community. Produce your own food. Even you can produce your own paper. You don't require printing of so many books. If there is one book, others can imitate, or copy. There is no need of printing. Formerly they used to do that. Here is the...
Bhagavān: [a lot of noise from cars] Would you like to go in the park? Do you want us to bring the car?
Prabhupāda: Now?
Bhagavān: I didn't understand that, Prabhupāda, about one book.
Prabhupāda: One book... Suppose we have prepared some small quantity of paper. So you can, if you want that book, you just copy another book.
Bhagavān: By hand.
Prabhupāda:Yes. There is no need of printing books.
Bhagavān: Some people would be engaged in copying books.
Prabhupāda: No, you engage yourself. If you want book, that book, you copy yourself. Why someone should be engaged for you? You have got enough time. You are not going to the factory or hundred miles for your earning livelihood. You are on the local space. You have got enough time. You just take, copy, that's all. Minimize your unnecessary waste of time. Save time. Chant Hare Kṛṣṇa, go back to home. This is our idea. Instead of chanting twenty-five rounds, you chant hundred rounds. That is utilization of proper time. Instead of begetting cats and dogs, you just beget one child, Kṛṣṇa conscious. This is the ideal life.
