Respected Jitarati Prabhu,

Sadar Pranam. AGTSP.

First of all, allow me to clarify that we are on the same pace of understanding and in the agreement that the Hand written note of Srila Prabhupada on the letter of Shri Radhavallabha das Prabhu to Srila Prabhupada dt. August 31, 1976, not dated Sept.07,1976 which reads ; ” whatever he has done is alright I have faith in him “.

In Srila Prabhupada’s response:Letter to: Radhavallabha

7 September, 197676-09-07
Los AngelesMy Dear Radhavallabha das,Please accept my blessings. I am in due receipt of your letters dated August 25 and 31 and have noted the contents.Concerning the editing of Jayadvaita Prabhu, whatever he does is approved by me. I have confidence in him. Your changes which I have seen of the sanskrit synonyms is also approved by me. Tanmayataya refers to the fact that the trees and the father were absorbed in the same feelings……..

Both these letters can be read here at this link ;

Important points and unresolved questions on 21000+ changesin Srimad Bhagavatam (first four cantos) Some important points: From that list of 21000+ changes(shown …

In the above letter dt. 7 September 1976, Srila Prabhupada approves of editing whatever Radhavallabha das Prabhu asked for in his letter dated August 31,1976.

Kindly NOTE that Srila Prabhupada gives permission only for that Edited work submitted for his approval for the printing as per the letter dated August 31, 1976.

It is only for that specific Edited work which please keep in mind for which you, Jitarati Prabhu, have agreed upon the same meaning in your comment.


THEREFORE, please note that the permission is not a ” Carte Blanche ” to make on going changes of editing and re-editing as per the sweet WILL of the Editors.

Jitarati Prabhu says ; ” Anyone who wants to see it, can easily see that the meaning is the same.
I really cannot understand what you are confused about.

So, it means that you and I are one hundred percent agreed that the above said Srila Prabhupada approval is only meant for the edited work submitted by Radhavallabha Prabhu with the letter dated August 31, 1976 .

Now that you and I are on the same pace of understanding, my question to you is WHAT IS THE VALIDITY of your response when you say in your article ;

Jitarati’s response:

“If they got an approval” ? These are the words of a demon, with no faith in Srila Prabhupada. They want to deny the approval, which they actually do below.

Yasoda you quoted this undeniable confirmation of Prabhupada: “in a letter dated September 7, 1976, “Concerning the editing of Jayadvaita Prabhu, whatever he does is approved by me. I have confidence in him.”

Where and what is that approval you are talking about ? Whom are you calling demon, with no faith in Srila Prabhupada ?

Is that the approval you are justifying Srila Prabhupada letter dated September 07,1976 ; “Concerning the editing of Jayadvaita Prabhu, whatever he does is approved by me. I have confidence in him.” ?

If it is so, you are referring to the above approval, then, you are yourself a LIAR, a CHEATER, cheating to protect your vested financial interest in the Red Set of S.B. which you are protecting for your personal interest only not the interest for Srila Prabhuipada’s Original VANI.

Should you prove me wrong in my above assumption by renouncing your vested financial interest in the Red Set, SB., in case, you are only TRUE to your goodself, giving me the benefit of doubts also that you are Honest and Truthful person, then, you should prove it, Jitarati Prabhu. The ball is in your court yard. Hope you play it well regardless what you choose with your FREEwill.

Further, here is my confusion, Jitarati Prabhu, when I come to think about a devoted and dedicated person like your goodself is failing to see that the Editors have made so many changes in the Srimad Bhagavatam by adding and deleting without the permission and approval of Srila Prabhupada. My mind gets confused, Prabhu. Why are you supporting and promoting the unauthorized changed version of Srimad Bhagavatam Red Set ?

What is your interest in that ?

Is it that you are heavily invested in printing of the unauthorized changed version of the Red Set Srimad Bhagavatam that you are committed to promote by hook or crook ? What it is that you are all out to protect your vested interest ? That is what makes me confused, Prabhu. This gives you the answer of my confusion you asked for.

Then you asked me ; ” Are you alright Prabhu? ”

My answer is NO. I am not alright, Prabhu. Here is why ;

Where is that written and/or recorded approval or permission from Srila Prabhupada to change wholesale in the Srimad Bhagavatam Red Set that you, Jitarati Prabhu, you are promoting vigorously by hook or crook what I call is throwing unnecessarily mud of offensive and defensive playing game ?

With regard to the answer to your SB. 1/17/22 – 1972 version you quote in the article is nowhere to be founded which reads as follows;

Delhi version ;

TRANSLATION ; ” The king said, oh you are one who knows the truth of religiousity in the form of a bull, you are speaking just on the principle that the place which is fixed up for the person engaged in acts of irreligiousity, is also the place for the identifier. You are no other than the personality of religiosity.”

That is why you say ; ” So it is easy to see that the 72 version has a completely different meaning.”

The correct version SB. 1-17-22 is the following with the link provided ;

TRANSLATION ; ” The King said ; O You who you are in the form of a bull, you know the truth of religion, and you are speaking on the principles that one knows the location of irreligious acts, one will know the perpetrator. You are no other then the personality of religion. ”


If need be, I shall continue in my next posting with more information with regard to the Red set of SB. as to why the Books are not Original. The Red Set is totally changed version.

Now I am exposing that how the Red Set of SB is duly changed version make me a Demon, a non-believer of Srila Prabhupada’s VANI, so be it.


Hare Krishna. All Glories to Srila Prabhupada.
