His books received acclaim for their authority, depth, and clarity, earning praise from professors at prestigious universities like Harvard and Oxford.

In 1972, Srila Prabhupada established The Bhaktivedanta Book Trust (BBT) to facilitate the publication of his works. The BBT also produced his multi-volume biography, Srila Prabhupada-Lilamrta, which renowned scholar of religion Larry Shinn described as "undoubtedly one of the most comprehensive records of the life and accomplishments of any modern religious figure." Before his departure, Srila Prabhupada assured his devotees that he would endure through his writings, serving as an eternal spiritual master and guru. He instilled in his followers an appreciation for the significance of writing and publishing, not only concerning his own works but also their own initiatives.
