Warning: date(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone. in /home/ad-vani/public_html/templates/template1/top.php on line 25

  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."

Word changers have not yet read this quote yet . . .

I applaud the stance taken by Sriman Satyahit prabhu’s wife and am sorry she could not secure an “original” copy, as was asked. It is beyond shameful and offensive, changing the thoughts and words of our beloved and great acharya, Srila Prabhupada’s books. Here’s a quote from Caitanya-caritamrta Adi lila, ch.2, text 86, where Srila Prabhupada states:

    “Srila Vyasadeva revealed these statements after perfect realization and therefore they are perfect, for liberated sages like Vyasadeva never commit errors in there rhetorical arrangements. Unless one accepts this fact, there is no use in trying to obtain help from the revealed scriptures.”

I guess the word-changers have not read this quote yet, since the “book-changing” nonsense seems to continue to thrive.
