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."

Letter of Support

The books of A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada initiated me into Krishna Consciousness and the chanting of the Holy Name.  These books saved my life. I consider them to be my heart and soul. I want this books to be available to all the people of the world.


When I came to know that the books had been revised and re-edited - at first I couldn't believe it. Then I was shocked and striken, I virtually broke down and I fled from the local ISKCON center (because it was ISKCON who did the revisions).  This happened about 7 years ago and still I'm not able to visit or work together with ISKCON centers around here although it would be the right thing and beneficial.


This revisions are still the cause of terrible suffering for me and I can see that so many devotees all over the world are similarly suffering. All this suffering and fighting is so needless, so absolutely and perfectly needless. Because Srila Prabhupada's books are perfect already. There is no need to change, revise or re-edit them.


I want to humbly beg the authorities of ISKCON to please stop it. Please stop it. Don't hurt and divide us any more. Please stop it.
