  Srila Prabhupada said:


"Srila Vyasadeva revealed these statements after perfect realization and therefore they are perfect, for liberated sages like Vyasadeva never commit errors in their rhetorical arrangements. Unless one accepts this fact, there is no use in trying to obtain help from the revealed scriptures."  -- CC Adi-Lila Chapter 2 text 86 purport.

"If you concoct, 'I am more intelligent than my Guru,' 'I can make additions and alterations,' then you are finished." -- Srila Prabhupada lecture July 12, 1975 Philadelphia Pa.

"We cannot water down the philosophy to make it more palatable. Our books must remain as they are." -- Srila Prabhupada letter to Lilavati devi dasi March 31, 1977.


 

  Notable Quotes:


Jasomatinandan prabhu:  " ... commonsense dictates that except for typographical mistakes such as "planet of the trees," no editions and subtractions should be done from 1972 edition."

Srila Prabhupada's pre-1978 authorized and approved works are transcendental!

The Conclusions are the Same?

If the BBTI will say that their 1982 version is as identical to Srila Prabhupada's original version in regards to conclusions, spiritual potency and effectiveness on world societies then this must be proven to those scholars who challenge them that their version does not.

Let us send a strong message to the editors and the BBT Trustees that these books do not belong to them but rather to Srila Prabhupada and the vaisnava community as a whole.

I assert that we may trust that authentic representation of Srila Prabhupada is the strongest assurance of protection, integrity and healthy expansion that an organization may enjoy.

Srila Prabhupada did not alter, edit, or change His spiritual masters words to suit the more simplified minds of the present day.

Can Pure Vibration Be Measured?

"I recently reviewed the upgrade for the Vedabase Folio. . . The implications to Jayadvaita's editorial construct are incredible. Does this mean to say that whatever Prabhupada personally spoke to us should be taken as a grain of salt until someone like Jayadvaita has a chance to "interpret" them for us as Srila Prabhupada really meant?"

"So Srila Prabhupada was clear enough regarding the importance of his books, and what role they will play. It is clear that there is no need to speculate after only a few years if his books are still sufficient for our needs. They were, are and always will be more than sufficient for our needs, and there is no need to alter or supplement them in anyway."
