When inaugurating the first publication of The Nectar of Devotion on 23 June 1970, Srila Prabhupada instructed:
Every one of you should read this Nectar of Devotion repeatedly. The whole substance of Vaisnava philosophy and activities, everything is there. So every one of you read this Nectar of Devotion once, twice, thrice. Everything is very clearly explained in this Nectar of Devotion. So each chapter you should read very carefully. And if you cannot understand, read it repeatedly. Don’t all of a sudden, reading one or two pages, immediately question, “Prabhupada, what is this? What is this? What is this?” Go on reading, and the answers will automatically come. This valuable book is now published. You should take full advantage.
