Audio Books vs Books???

Hare Krishna Prabhuji !

I have a question Prabhu. Can I listen to Audio Books of Srila Prabhupada or spoken by devotees like Amal Bhakta on 

The reason I'm asking this is I'm a working professional and chanting 16 rounds. I'm not getting time to read Bhagwatgeeta and I sleep by 9 and wakeup by 4 for devotional practices. Then Office after Bhagwatam Class and come by 7/7.30. After that time just runs because I'm also trying to learn Kartals. 

Can you please tell weather listening to Audio books is preferable for me since in office or while walking I can hear... 

Please reply..

    Hare KRsna Prabhuji,


    Wonderful - you have engaged all your time int he service of the lord and are still wanting to engage more time in His service. Very nice to read your mail.

    Yes, you can listen to audio books. You can maybe do this in your travel time, your eating time, like you mentioned walking time. You could also listen to lectures. A lot of devotees are constantly hearing. Sravanam is one of the most purifying activities.


    Dandvats to you,

    Your servant,
