What “changing” means

By Hasti Gopala Dasa
Change: To cause to be different – change the spelling of a word.
We can understand from this simple meaning of the word “change” that when the BBT changes Srila Prabhupada and Krishna’s books they must first have understood the original meaning. Otherwise how would they recognize what they want to change? Why then do they not report their understandings of what they plan on changing to Krishna and Srila Prabhupadas disciples and followers before they make the change?
Simple, because if the devotees and followers understand what they understand before it is changed then they will learn something from Srila Prabhupada and Krishna and will know what the BBT, GBC and ISKCON leaders know. Then the devotees and followers may have a decision about the change, which is their natural right. Is the BBT their own ultimate authority or is Krishna and Srila Prabhupada their ultimate authority?

So obviously when the changes are studied we can see that they are covering knowledge and deleting knowledge that they do not want you to understand or have access to. That is an act of creating nescience not revealing science therefore the BBT, GBC and ISKCON leaders are in the business of managing a literary industrial complex by promoting the mode of ignorance or darkness. Simply based on that reality the BBT must be shut down. The BBT and the GBC act as nanny’s insulting the intelligence of the general public what to speak of Srila Prabhupada and Krishnas disciples and followers. And who do they get their money from?
The BBT and GBC are quite aware that their ongoing criminal activity of changing the books of God and his bona fide representative is being followed, countered and exposed yet they continue unabated. Only career criminals with quiet secure backing can perform like that.
Don’t think for one moment that Jayadvaita Swami and Dravida dasa are the only ones involved in changing the books at the BBT. The BBT has several devotees in training to expand the work and speed up the process so that when Jayadvaita Swami and Dravida dasa move on the changes can continue until there is nothing left of Srila Prabhupadas and Krishna’s books reading like prostituted mythology.
While the book changing continues along with the controversy the book changers have become the focus, not Krishna and not Srila Prabhupada. This maintained focus is the desire of the Fabians within the BBT, the GBC and ISKCON. Evolutionary socialism to promote impersonalism not by the way of revolution is what is behind the GBC and the BBT workings. It is the ongoing evolution of social interaction within a controversial activity that is very important in keeping the masses of devotees distracted by temple worship and ritual rather than understanding the realities of material existence via Srila Prabhupada and Krishna’s books. Removal of temple and deity worship will come later. Srila Prabhupada has already outlined throughout his books how real socialism should come about with Krishna in the centre.
The BBT and GBC do not suffer from any so called “change disease” that is simply a welcomed idea that keeps the BBT and GBC’s so called critics massaging the BBT and GBC’s feigned weakness while making their detractors feel good displaying cheap psychological observations with no solutions. Which only they enjoy to read.
Giving a completely different form and appearance to Srila Prabhupadas books is simple theft disguised as a helpful reformation which is only understood by the thieves. They are planning that the next generation will succumb to their Fabian Mayavadi Society and never know the difference. Srila Prabhupada and Krishna are countering that. So the BBT leadership is a den of thieves and should be over turned and driven out!

In addition.
From Yasodanandan prabhu.
And do not forget, they are afflicted with deep envy of the acarya, Srila Prabhupada.
The editors deleted Srila Prabhupada’s honorific title “the greatest exponent of Krishna Consciousness in the western world” from His original Bhagavad-Gita as it is.
The editors deleted the sacred picture of His Divine Grace Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura Prabhupada from the 1983 edition

So Krishna says, the acarya… Here it is said that advaitam harina advaitad. So of course Advaita Acarya is expansion of Visnu-tattva, but any acarya, he is to be considered identical with the Lord. The Lord says that, that acaryam mam vijaniyat [SB 11.17.27]: “One should understand the acarya…” Acarya bhakti-samsanat. Acarya means who is spreading pure bhakti cult. “That acarya,” Krishna says, “you should consider such acarya as Myself.” Acaryam mam vijaniyat navamanyeta karhicit, that… You cannot consider, “Yes, he’s acarya, but not as good as Krishna.” No. Na avamanyeta. Don’t deride in that way. Then there will be falldown. Acaryam mam vijaniyat navamanyeta karhicit. And in the Vedas also it is said, yasya deve para bhaktir yatha deve tatha gurau: [SU 6.23] “Anyone who has got unflinching faith in the Supreme Personality and the similar faith in guru…” Yasya deve para bhaktir yatha deve tatha gurau, tasyaite kathita hy arthah: “All the Vedic literature,” prakasante, “becomes revealed simply by these two principle.” Guru-krsna krpa paya bhakti-lata-bija. We should not jump over Krishna without the help of guru. That is not possible. You must go through. Because Krishna says, acaryam mam vijani… Tasmad gurum prapadyeta jijsasuh sreya uttamam: [SB 11.3.21] “Actually one who is serious to understand higher transcendental subject matter, he must approach guru.” Tasmad gurum, prapadyeta. These are Vedic injunctions. Caksudana dilo yei, janme janme pita sei. So anyone who opens… Guru means who opens the eyes of the ignorant person. Ajsana-timirandhasya jsanasjana-salakaya. Opening the eyes by giving real knowledge… Guru-krsna krpa paya bhakti-lata-bija. So bhakti-lata, the devotional service, the seed of devotional service, can be received by the parampara system through bona fide spiritual master. And if we abide by the orders of spiritual master faithfully, then Krishna becomes pleased. That is stated by Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura, yasya prasadad bhagavat-prasadah **. Ara na koriya mane asa. Narottama dasa… All the acaryas, they say like that. Acaryam mam vijaniyat. Acaryavan puruso veda: “One who has accepted acarya, he knows things as they are.” Others, they do not know. It is not possible.
Books : Sri Caitanya-caritamrta – 1975 Edition : Cc. Adi-lila : Adi 1: The Spiritual Masters : Adi 1.46 :If one poses himself as an acarya but does not have an attitude of servitorship to the Lord, he must be considered an offender, and this offensive attitude disqualifies him from being an acarya. The bona fide spiritual master always engages in unalloyed devotional service to the Supreme Personality of Godhead. By this test he is known to be a direct manifestation of the Lord and a genuine representative of Sri Nityananda Prabhu. Such a spiritual master is known as acaryadeva. Influenced by an envious temperament and dissatisfied because of an attitude of sense gratification, mundaners criticize a real acarya. In fact, however, a bona fide acarya is nondifferent from the Personality of Godhead, and therefore to envy such an acarya is to envy the Personality of Godhead Himself. This will produce an effect subversive of transcendental realization.
Books : Srimad-Bhagavatam : Canto 2: “The Cosmic Manifestation” : SB 2.3: Pure Devotional Service: The Change in Heart : SB 2.3.24 : PURPORT The advanced devotee who chants the holy name of the Lord in a perfectly offenseless manner and is friendly to everyone can actually relish the transcendental taste of glorifying the Lord. And the result of such realization is reflected in the cessation of all material desires, etc., as mentioned above. The neophytes, due to their being in the lower stage of devotional service, are invariably envious, so much so that they invent their own ways and means of devotional regulations without following the acaryas. As such, even if they make a show of constantly chanting the holy name of the Lord, they cannot relish the transcendental taste of the holy name..

abhisandhaya yo himsam
dambham matsaryam eva va
samrambhi bhinna-drg bhavam
mayi kuryat sa tamasah
abhisandhaya—having in view; yah—he who; himsam—violence; dambham—pride; matsaryam—envy; eva—indeed; va—or; samrambhi—angry; bhinna—separate; drk—whose vision; bhavam—devotional service; mayi—to Me; kuryat—may do; sah—he; tamasah—in the mode of ignorance.
Devotional service executed by a person who is envious, proud, violent and angry, and who is a separatist, is considered to be in the mode of darkness.
It has already been stated in the Srimad-Bhagavatam, First Canto, Second Chapter, that the highest, most glorious religion is the attainment of causeless, unmotivated devotional service. In pure devotional service, the only motive should be to please the Supreme Personality of Godhead. That is not actually a motive; that is the pure condition of the living entity. In the conditioned stage, when one engages in devotional service, he should follow the instruction of the bona fide spiritual master in full surrender. The spiritual master is the manifested representation of the Supreme Lord because he receives and presents the instructions of the Lord, as they are, by disciplic succession. It is described in Bhagavad-gita that the teachings therein should be received by disciplic succession, otherwise there is adulteration. To act under the direction of a bona fide spiritual master with a motive to satisfy the Supreme Personality of Godhead is pure devotional service. But if one has a motive for personal sense gratification, his devotional service is manifested differently. Such a man may be violent, proud, envious and angry, and his interests are separate from the Lord’s.
One who approaches the Supreme Lord to render devotional service, but who is proud of his personality, envious of others or vengeful, is in the mode of anger. He thinks that he is the best devotee. Devotional service executed in this way is not pure; it is mixed and is of the lowest grade, tamasah. Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura advises that a Vaishnava who is not of good character should be avoided. A Vaishnava is one who has taken the Supreme Personality of Godhead as the ultimate goal of life, but if one is not pure and still has motives, then he is not a Vaishnava of the first order of good character. One may offer his respects to such a Vaishnava because he has accepted the Supreme Lord as the ultimate goal of life, but one should not keep company with a Vaishnava who is in the mode of ignorance.


  1. Hare Rama,
    pamho. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

    These people are not even Vaishnavas of the lowest grade.
    They want to kill& harass Prabhupada's real teachings and real disciples.
    They do not accept the Supreme Lord as their Goal, because such a behavior is the path to hell and not back to Godhead.

    I would rather call this new species born into this Kali Yuga Anti Vaishnavas. Even ordinary non devotees are indifferent to the Vaishnavas and do not harass them in such a way as the GBC and their followers did.
