Jayadvaita Swami and BBTI’s claim to fame:
Let us (again) take a look at this claim.
Bhagavad-gita As It Is Text 18.2:
Original and authorized 1972 edition of Bhagavad-gita As It Is:
“The Supreme Lord said, To give up the results of all activities is called renunciation [tyaga] by the wise. And that state is called the renounced order of life [sannyäsa] by great learned men.”
BBTI’s unauthorized 1983 edition of Bhagavad-gita As It Is:
“The Supreme Personality of Godhead said: The giving up of activities that are based on material desire is what great learned men call the renounced order of life [sannyasa]. And giving up the results of all activities is what the wise call renunciation [tyaga].”
This is NOT an example of Jayadvaita Swami bringing us “Closer to Prabhupada!” On the contrary, he has (again) taken the Bhagavad-gita As It Is further away from Srila Prabhupada. In other words, we are not reading Srila Prabhupada. We are reading what the hidden co-author, Jayadvaita Swami, wrote.
Their claim to fame is a falsehood.
