“Banana Llama” Editing of Krsna Book

1 month, 1 week ago by Namacarya das in Hot Topics

Dear Guru Maharaja, please accept my humble obeisances.

All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

You wrote on Twitter "So much editing needed for KRSNA book." Please, can you say and explain more about this, for some, hot topic ?

Thank you.

Your servant Namacarya Das

HpS - AGTSP. Have you listened to the tapes from www.prabhupadavani.org? They are very nice, but Srila Prabhupada says so many things are grammatically incorrect in English. Also when I say, "Dinner will be at 7PM" my tone of voice can make it a question very clearly, no? But, it can also be a statment, so there also has to be editing even for a native speaker from spoken English to written English.

Content changes for example we feel would include the mention of Mirabhai in the dictation tapes and then being removed from the first and all Krsna book printings. That I suspect was done by Srila Prabhupada when he manually edited the typed manuscript. The devotees would have had no reason to remove her name. I would think he would have done it because her situation is not exactly clear in Parampara system, though I think he considers her a nice devotee.

Another one is that in the takes Srila Prabhupada says that Iskcon devotees can take rocks from Govardhana and worship them at home like we worship the Deity. Then in the Krsna book it does not say, "devotees of ISKCON", it says "great devotees". So, again, seeing the transcript I would say that Srila Prabhupada had second thoughts about authorizing his ISKCON students and manually changed it.

These are some of our thoughts.

What do you think?

I wanna die!!! Bless me please.

Beloved Guru Maharaja thank you for answering my letter, I left the temple 4 days ago, I no longer live there, after 10 years. I have distributed 540 large books and 50 Bhagavad Gitas in his 4 days, it was incredible, by force and dedication that comes from your practice and high devotion, I am emotionally destroyed and I have a strong existential crisis, so I occupy all the time in sankirtan, tomorrow we will do Sankirtan Harinama with the devotees of the temple, I found a family that can help me open a Ashram for university students, I travel to Colombia tomorrow and Maha Visnu Swami asked me to return to Mexico to join her group to travel through South America, I really give up Guru Maharaja I don't know how to stay longer in this world, I hate being here in this world Matter Guru Maharaja, please beg me to explain how I can get out of this jail, please help me. I love you more than everything.

AgtSP. Paoho. Internet horrible. Your letter lost. Both suggestions seem fine but we cannot give much detailed advice. Suggest that you have a determined partner for any project you start. Two or three would be better but is hard to get.

Hare Krishna maharaja,

Pamho, agtsp.

Thank you for your patience, and thank you for your replies to my letters.

Your point about all philosophy comes from a person is brilliant. I have heard you say it before. But the impact is even bigger when it hits close to home.

The wonderful thing about Krishna Consciousness is that, as we go through different stages, dealing with different impurities in our motivation and consciousness, the Good Lord arranges many things synergistically for our benefit. Two days ago, I heard this wonderful class by Srila Prabhupada, delivered on the 3rd December 1975, in which he completely dismantles māyāvādism. He said (paraphrasing)...

"You love your home because you live in it. You love your body because you live in it; you love yourself - the soul. And, who is the source of your soul? Vishnu, Krishna... mamaivamsa Jiva loke jiva bhuta sanatanah (BG 15.7)... Just like Dhruva maharaja, he wanted so many material things, but when he found the source of everything, when he saw Vishnu, he only wanted to serve Him with love. We do not want to merge with our source, we want to serve. When the child cries for mother, when he finds his mother, he does not want to climb back in the womb. No, the child cries for his mother because he wants to have loving exchanges with his her."

Jai Srila Prabhupada!!! Jai HHHPS!!!

Dr Mabbett

As mentioned in previous letter, Dr. Mabbett and I are scheduled to meet 9th August. I will keep you posted as that develops.


India October

My (big) little birdie said now's not the time. More time working on qualification is necessary. So, I will not come to India in October. I really look forward to someday being qualified to meet with you in Vrindavan again, maharaja. Please continue to guide me so that I too can sit at the table with Jesus.


Gotommeeting

I enjoy participating live in the classes... such elevated sanga... But they are very late for me (10:30pm) and, therefore, maybe, my participation is with rajasic and tamasic tones. The recordings are better suited for a person of my qualification, who is too fallen to even enter the temple, yet. Please keep posting the recordings on twitter. Your classes are my caitanya (living force).


Hare Krishna!

HpS - Jaya!!! Hari Bolo! Hari Bolo! How is the Japa Mala. Do you knead your beads, feed your beads and wear them around your kneck all day so they can do great deeds?
