    Srila Prabhupada speaks out:

    "In order to change this materialistic society and prevent it from gliding to hell, first thing is to educate the [people]. All decent men want to give service to humanity; the only thing is that they do not have information really what is that service. Hospitals, feeding the poor, the Red Cross ... these are service to the bodies only, not to the man. Service to humanity means jnana. By giving people knowledge, jnana, that is the highest service to humanity. So we are performing the actual welfare work of society by informing everyone through our literatures who is God, who they are, and what is their relationship. In this way everyone who hears our message gets the opportunity to fulfill his actual position as a human entity and become delivered from the clutches of maya."
    (Letter to Rameshvara Dasa, 9 January 1973)
