Compilation of quotes from Srila Prabhupada regarding his books:

“Just read from my books and try and explain the meaning in your own words.” (Srila Prabhupada letter, 73-01-26)
“You must all study all of the books so that when the need arises you can repeat in your own words their purport.”
(Srila Prabhupada letter, 72-01-06)
“The process is that you should memorize the purports of my books and then speak them in your own words.”
(Srila Prabhupada letter, 75-11-15)
“By writing according to our realization we become more and more convinced and all doubts are destroyed.”
(Srila Prabhupada letter, 75-11-15)
“Chant Hare Krsna Mantra day and night, read books and expressing the philosophy in your own words write articles for publishing.” (Srila Prabhupada letter, 75-11-15)
“You ask one question about the nature of books. I want you to write as my disciples; on this point, Krsna Consciousness is not limited. Persons like all of the Gosvamis wrote so many books, Visvanatha Cakravarti, and all the acaryas wrote books, and still I am writing books. Similarly, also my disciples will write.”
(Srila Prabhupada letter, 72-2-15)
“Everything is there in our books; so learn it and put in your own way by reproducing. You are also materially well-educated so reproduce what I have taught in your own language. These things are new thoughts in your western countries, everyone will be interested. Writing is also required. Let it be published first in our BTG, then sometimes they may be printed into books also.”
(Srila Prabhupada letter, 72-5-1)
