Book Changers Deluded Persons

April 22, 2018 in Articles, Hasti Gopala Dasa by Laksman dasa

As long as they consider the pure devotee to be fallible then they will consider his service to be fallible. Thus with their illusion
based on envy and hate they constantly seek out new avenues to travel with their desires trying to control the will of the pure devotee. That is not possible and it is leaving them outside of the reality they think they understand. Srila Prabhupada’s Bhagavad Gita As It Is 1972 edition was not created by material energies as confirmed below. Therefore its original version is the correct version verified here from the Bhagavad Gita As It Is by the original author as dictated by the original person the Supreme Personality of Godhead Krsna. This is verified below from that original 1972 Bhagavad Gita As It Is. Therefore the original 1972 edition of the Bhagavad Gita As It Is is it’s own authority. There is no other.

Chapter 7: Knowledge of the Absolute
dvandva-mohena bharata
sarva-bhutani sammoham
sarge yanti parantapa

iccha—desire; dvesa—hate; samutthena—born; dvandva—duality; mohena—overcome; bharata—O scion of Bharata; sarva—all; bhutani—living entities; sammoham—into delusion; sarge—in creation; yanti—go; parantapa—O conquerer of enemies.


O scion of Bharata [Arjuna], O conquerer of the foe, all living entities are born into delusion, overcome by the dualities of desire and hate.


The real constitutional position of the living entity is that of subordination to the Supreme Lord, who is pure knowledge. When one is deluded into separation from this pure knowledge, he becomes controlled by illusory energy and cannot understand the Supreme Personality of Godhead. The illusory energy is manifested in the duality of desire and hate. Due to desire and hate, the ignorant person wants to become one with the Supreme Lord and envies Krsna as the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Pure devotees, who are not so deluded or contaminated by desire and hate, can understand that Lord Sri Krsna appears by His internal potencies, but those who are deluded by duality and nescience think that the Supreme Personality of Godhead is created by material energies. This is their misfortune. Such deluded persons, symptomatically, dwell in dualities of dishonor and honor, misery and happiness, woman and man, good and bad, pleasure and pain, etc., thinking, “This is my wife; this is my house; I am the master of this house; I am the husband of this wife.” These are the dualities of delusion. Those who are so deluded by dualities are completely foolish and therefore cannot understand the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
