BHAGAVAD-GITA

BHAGAVAD-GITA AS IT IS

bg-compared-cover

Here you can see many of changes made to Srila Prabhupada’s Bhagavad-gita As It Is.

The list is not exhaustive, and more examples will be added. Our goal is not to show every single change, but to focus mainly on major changes – specifically those changes that:

  • show Jayadvaita Swami is not telling the truth about what he has done to Srila Prabhupada’s Bhagavad-gita As It Is.

We have not included Jayadvaita Swami’s own examples of his changes with their “justifications” – except some those we do not agree with. If you want to see Jayadvaita Swami’s “justifications” BBT International has a website for that. We encourage you to go there and inform yourself, so that your understanding of this matter will not be one-sided.
