Never before released book changes list (more books to follow)

* Srila Prabhupada; We shall never change it. In any circumstance we will not change it. That is the difference

* Changing means material. Anything material is susceptible to change

Srila Prabhupāda: So, these rascals will change every year their theology. So, what is the value of their words? Childish. [break] …changes, he is a rascal. That is our… We say, “Kṛṣṇa the Supreme.” We never change it. And “Surrender is the only process.” We shall never change it. In any circumstance we will not change it. That is the difference. And these rascals will change every year their opinion. They are rascals. [break] …They are rascals. [break] Kṛṣṇa said that “I am the Supreme.” So Arjuna accepted, the Supreme. All the ācāryas accepted the Supreme. Caitanya Mahāprabhu accepted, Supreme. My Guru Mahārāja accepted, Supreme. I am accepting, Supreme. I am teaching the same thing. So, there is no change. Not that after a few years it will be changed. That never be. That is our position. [break] Changing means material. Anything material is susceptible to change. Like this material body.

THE INCONTROVERTIBLE VERDICT

BHAGAVAT DHARMA SAMAJ
Institute for Pure Devotional Service
OFFICE of PUBLIC RELATIONS

Dear devotees and friends,

On September 13th 2020 Bhagavat Dharma Samaj’s Office of Public Relations received information about a REGISTERED LAWYER’S NOTICE sent from the law office of PRASAD & SUKUMAR ASSOCIATES, representing the ‘Ritvik’ organization called ‘Hare Krishna Movement Vishakapatnam’ affiliated with ISKCON Bangalore. Their legal notice was delivered to Bhagavat Dharma Samaj at the Sri Sri Radha Govinda Mandir (Red Stone Temple), 100 Feet Road, Raman Reti, Vrindavan, India.

We understood their notice to be an attempt to stop our Internet preaching efforts and to intimidate one of our successful preachers who used to render volunteer services to their organization, but who later found them to be spiritually incorrect and not benefitting to him and decided to join Bhagavat Dharma Samaj and follow the teachings of His Divine Grace Mahamandaleshwar Mahant Krsna Balaram Swami. Their legal notice was a bit surprising to us and did not seem legally appropriate either. Nevertheless, we thought we should respond accordingly and let our devotees and the world judge for themselves the injustice being committed against us. [Read More…]

Some proofs from Srila Prabhupada that the  Macmillan 1972 Edition is the “only original” edition

Srila Prabhupada: “The authorized edition of Bhagavad-gita will help to stop the terrible cheating of ‘gurus’ and ‘yogis’ who are false and unauthorized.

Some proofs from Srila Prabhupada that the
Macmillan 1972 Edition is the “only original” edition

Compiled by Yasodanandan Prabhu

Therefore we are presenting Bhagavad-gītā as it is. We do not change. We have no power to change. Then where is the authority of Bhagavad-gītā? I am a third-class man, and if I change the statements in the Bhagavad-gītā, then where is the authority of Bhagavad-gītā? That is going on. Therefore it is practically . . . you have got experience that there are hundreds of Bhagavad-gītā edition in the Western countries, but because we are presenting Bhagavad-gītā as it is, our sale is better than all others.

There is the report from the trade manager of Macmillan Company. He says: “While other editions are dwindling, going down, this edition is coming up.” They published our this present enlarged edition of Bhagavad-gītā, fifty thousand in the month of August. They are going to print again, second edition, August, September, October. So the reason is that if we present things as they are, it will be accepted. Without any adulteration.

Sometimes, you know, people say that I have done miracles. They say everywhere. But I do not know anything miracles or magic. If there is any miracle, that miracle is that we present things as they are, that’s all, without any adulteration. So that should be the principle. Present as it is: it will be accepted.  [Lecture SB 01.02.11 – Vrndavana,October 22, 1972]

“Now, now let us report. This morning one of our devotee has come from . . . Śyāmasundara, from London. Now our this Bhagavad-gītā As It Is is the topmost selling book in London. All the booksellers, Bhagavad-gītā As It Is. So Macmillan Company is our publisher, and within one year they have published three editions, fifty thousand each. So real thing will have real value. One professor of religion from London University came to see me. He said: “Now we have rejected Dr. Radhakrishnan’s Bhagavad-gītā.” He said.”  [Lecture BG 13.08-12, BOMBAY – September 30, 1973]

They even rejected Radhakrishnan’s Gita, which shows that this is the original edition that Srila Prabhupada wants. He also says “real thing will have real value”, so we know that the 1972 edition is the real copy.

Prabhupāda: Yes, let me finish, that . . . We are presenting Bhagavad-gītā as it is, and it is being accepted all over the world. People are very much, those who are scholars, they say that even Radhakrishnan and Aurobindo, they presented Bhagavad-gītā, making some compromise with the Western ideas. But here is presentation of Bhagavad-gītā in India’s original, traditional way. So they welcome it. And this is our, I mean to say, object also, that we cannot allow Bhagavad-gītā to be understood by anyone’s imagination. No. That is not possible. And that is not allowed in the Bhagavad-gītā by the author. Kṛṣṇa says in the Fourth Chapter that as soon as the paramparā system of understanding is lost, then the whole thing is lost. In the Fourth Chapter it is said. (aside:) Find out Fourth Chapter.   [Interview-CHANDIGARH – October 16, 1976] [Read More…]

Śrī Dāmodarāṣṭakaṁ (with text)

Damodar Masa - offering lights to Krishna

Yasoda - Krishna      Lord Damodar - Krishna

This song is sung during the Month of Kartik, also known as the month of Damodara. As quoted in the Sri Hari-Bhakti-Vilasa, “In the month of Kartika one should worship Lord Damodara and daily recite the prayer known as Damodarastaka, which has been spoken by the sage Satyavrata and which attracts Lord Damodara. (Sri Hari-bhakti-vilasa 2.16.198).”

As God is one, similarly, guru is also one. There cannot be different gurus

Srila Prabhupada - As God is one, similarly, guru is also one. There cannot be different gurus

As God is one, similarly, guru is also one. There cannot be different gurus

No. Guru means the representative of God. As God is one, similarly, guru is also one. There cannot be different gurus

“So, these students, European, American students, they are offering respect to their spiritual master. Outsiders may think that the spiritual master is very puffed up, and he is sitting and taking respect from the disciple. But the fact is that they are to be taught like that, how to offer respect to the spiritual master. This is our Vedic process. Any sect or Vedic sect, the principle is ādau gurv-āśrayam: “The first principle is to accept guru.” Unless there is guru, how it can be executed, yasya deve parā bhaktir yathā deve tathā gurau (ŚU 6.23)? This is Vedic injunction. Other Vedic injunctions are like the same. Kaṭha Upaniṣad says, tad-vijñānārthaṁ sa gurum eva abhigacchet (MU 1.2.12): “If you want to learn that transcendental science, then your first business is to go to a guru.” Guru. . . As God is one, guru is also one. There cannot be different gurus. Nowadays it has become a fashion that “I have got my own guru. You have got your own guru.” No. Guru means the representative of God. As God is one, similarly, guru is also one. There cannot be different gurus. [Read More…]
