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 Uvaca by Srutakirti Dasa

Entering Srila Prabhupada's quarters was always an enlightening experience. Sometimes Srila Prabhupada sat and read His books. Whenever He read it seemed as if someone else had written His books because He didn't read with the mind of an author who might be looking for editing mistakes or grammatical errors. He read them with the relish of a pure devotee reading the pastimes of the Supreme Lord to whom He was completely attached.

One day in Los Angeles I went into His room to perform my duties and He was sitting and reading "Bhagavad Gita As It Is". After I offered obeisances He looked at me and said, "If you just read this one book and understand, you will become Krishna Conscious in this very life."

A few months later when I went into His room, He was reading "Nectar of Devotion". He looked at me and said, "This book is so nice. Just by reading this one book you can become Krishna Conscious."
 
Srila Prabhupada teaches us by example. He does everything He asks us to do. He requests us to read His book and He does, too.
