JAYADVAITA SWAMI – SELF-APPOINTED GHOSTWRITER

By Ajit Krishna Dasa

Definition:

“ghostwriter
ˈɡəʊstrʌɪtə/
noun
a person whose job it is to write material for someone else who is the named author.

However, the difference between the usual ghostwriter and Jayadvaita Swami is that the latter is forcing his service upon the author (Srila Prabhupada), after the author’s demise.

We got rid of the eleven self-appointed zonal “gurus”. But we still have Jayadvaita Swami who, as the self-appointed ghostwriter, is forcing his editing on Srila Prabhupada. Srila Prabhupada has no say in this regard. He is simply being forced to accept the ghostwritten material of Jayadvaita Swami.

And so is everyone else.

Hare Krishna!

Grammar mistake in 1983 Gita (Bg 9.31)

BBT International / Jayadvaita Swami are making their own share of mistakes. Here is a new one brought to my attention by Bhakta Torben Nielsen.

From the original 1972 Bhagavad-gita As It Is (Bg 9.31)

17880556_10155300261850962_8701180303661613560_o

No mistakes here.

From Jayadvaita Swami’s unauthorized 1983 Bhagavad-gita As It Is (9.31)

17741302_405450219811127_1864148414_n

There is no full stop before “How”, and therefore “H” should not be capitalized.

The mistake is also to be found on vedabase.com (Bg 9.31)

Mistakes are inevitable in this material world. I personally prefer the mistakes made by Hayagriva Prabhu, the only editor Srila Prabhupada approved to edit his Bhagavad-gita As It is.

Harikesh Swami – Next Acarya After Srila Prabhupada?

By Ajit Krishna Dasa

Danish Bhagavad-gita As It Is Anno 1984:

13346308_10154338447350962_9033715945169577503_o

BBT International approved of this change! Perhaps even Jayadvaita Swami?

Later the devotees had to rip out this page. Embarrasing! Shows the extent of the zonal “acarya’s” ambitions, and the self-deception of their followers.

Kripamoya Dasa Fails to Justify the Book Changes

I had a few exchanges with Kripamoya Prabhu (ACBSP & GBC) on Facebook. The exchange speaks for itself. I did not leave anything out.

Here we go:

Kripamoya Prabhu did not respond.

Later, in another exchange, Kripamoya Prabhu stated that he could not accept a devotee’s criticism of ISKCON, because the devotee posted anonymously. I responded by referring to the above exchange where I posted non-anonymously, but where he, Kripamoya Prabhu, still did not respond.

To some of the above comments Kripamoya Prabhu also responded:

Foreign Translations – No Problem

By Ajit Krishna Dasa

A devotee, Purusha Dasa, is mocking those who are against the book changes. Check the picture:

My answer:

Purusha Dasa is presenting a false analogy. Let me explain:

Translations into foreign languages presents no problem for those against changes to Srila Prabhupada’s books.

Why?

Because such translations do not present themselves as the original words of Srila Prabhupada. Instead they present themselves as foreign translations of Srila Prabhupada’s words, and everyone knows that such translations come with some problems. But you can always check the foreign translations against the original English editions.

On the other hand, the unauthorized, changed books from BBT International present themselves as Srila Prabhupada’s original words, even though they are not. And BBT International wants to eliminate the original editions so that any comparison between the originals and the changed editions is impossible.

Now that is a problem.
