Lord Caitanya the supreme editor part 2

Dear Jambavan Prabhu
Please accept my humble obaisences
All glories to Srila Prabhupada
When Mother Govinda writes she had a dream of Srila Prabhupada I knew the importance of this.I have never met Srila Prabhupada in vapu form, but over the years I have had dreams sometimes of Srila Prabhupada that was as clear as the day, and not imaginary.In 2004 Srila Prabhupada appeared to me every night for 5 nights in a row in my dreams and he asked me
to leave Narayana Maharajas sanga and return to ISKCON, he told me he had very important service for me.I was in tears Srila
Prabhupada asked this of me,I said but Srila Prabhupada how can someone as fallen as me serve you.He smiling told me just depend on Krishna and speak the truth ,you will see how Krishna will use you for helping ISKCON.In another of those dreams I asked Srila Prabhupada if I could just stay outside of ISKCON and serve him ( as I had enough with corruption and deviations).He told me not to worry and that Krishna would protect me and help me, and he would be there to guide me.
Sadly I do not feel this kind of presence from Srila Prabhupada every day and his reasuring guidance.I also told Srila Prabhupada in one of these dreams that some of his disciples had no respect for younger devotees like myself and would not accept anything from me.He told me not to worry.I rarely share this with anyone, but as you are a dear friend,I share this in confidence.When I wrote this last year I had an 8 hours long discussion with Rupanuga Prabhu a few months before.
And I am sorry to say this I do have no doubt that Jayadvaita Swami and others where motivated by a desire for fame in overly editing Srila Prabhupadas books,and change the wordings of Srila Prabhupada in his own books.Such things are understood by a sincere disciple, but Jayadvaita Swami is not insincere, but somehow has imagined ,he could do with Srila Prabhupadas books as he liked.Why spend million dollars over this lawsuit, it would never please Srila Prabhupada.Now Jayadvaita Swami is against the ritviks distributing a million plates of prasadam daily to children, that even President Obama has praised, but he has BBT waste a million dollars for this nonsens lawsuit.I think you get the picture.I am not saying I agree with the ritviks, but they got tired with fallen Gurus, homosexual pedofiles, and persons even changing his books.So who can blame them really in loosing faith in the GBC?To accept a Guru is a must in spiritual life , but if the Guru is not in control of his senses even and an advanced devotee.It is better to simply worship Srila Prabhupada.There is so many more things to say.But I will leave it as this.
Thank you for being a servant of the Absolute Truth,Sri Krishna and being serious and open minded about this.Jayadvaita Swami and others know if Srila Prabhupada original books get distributed , everyone will want them and not his and Dravidas editing.Let the BBT put it to a test and see ,what edition the devotees out of their own free will want to distribute.But often their
is no free will in ISKCON, and others want to think for you and manipulate you.Bookdistribution is way down in Europe and USA,this is one of the courses.And the indivdual GBC's are mostly not serious about increasing the distribution of Srila Prabhupadas books what to speak of setting a good example by going out on bookdistribution and inspire others by example.
Srila Prabhupada said I did not come to create this sitting down class of men,I like to add but vaisnava heroes that distribute his books.(see SB 7.9.44 purport)

Thank you very much for your response. Due to your years of selfless service in the distribution of Srila Prabhupada's books, your realizations are of great importance and deserve to be listened to by all sincere devotees. I appreciate them very much and it has been the testimonies of devotees such as yourself that has given me a greater perspective on this issue.

Your humble servant

I wrote this last year, and though very strong I hold the same opinion still .
I also know Srila Prabhupada wanted his original book distributed

On the other hand, that literature which is full of descriptions of the transcendental glories of the name, fame, forms, pastimes, etc., of the unlimited Supreme Lord is a different creation, full of transcendental words directed toward bringing about a revolution in the impious lives of this world's misdirected civilization. Such transcendental literatures, even though imperfectly composed, are heard, sung and accepted by purified men who are thoroughly honest
I have mentioned how Kesava Kasmiri did some mistakes in his 100 prayers to Mother Ganga and Lord Caitanya corrected them as He is the
"Supreme editor " if he wanted too he could tell Kesava Kasmiri you know what I am sick and tired of so many mistakes in vaisnava litterature, I will give you intelligence to fix them all ,he never did.So this sloka stands as it is also on the very first page of Srimad Bhagavatam
in the first canto as ordered by Srila Prabhupada it speaks tons .
There is not much further to say and Mother Govinda and also Rupanuga Prabhu has given much evidence to this.They are more senior
than Jayadvaita Swami and others also.Their opinion should be carefull taken into account

Dear devotees

As many of you are aware, one of my main services for the past few years has been translating from Sanskrit into English under the auspice of H.G. Gopiparanadhana Prabhu, currently the primary Sanskrit scholar for the BBT. As such, many devotees over the years have asked my opinion about the controversy surrounding the editing of Srila Prabhupada's books. I have never really taken a firm stand on the issue and I am not going to at the present time in this letter. However, I recently received a letter by H.G. Govinda Dasi in which she makes some very compelling arguments against the editing of Srila Prabhupada's books--arguments which I feel have altered my previous opinions about the issue. Please forgive me if this e-mail appears political in nature, for I do not wish it to be. I felt that those of you who are concerned with this issue may be interested to read this letter in order to help you formulate your opinion about this sensitive, yet important issue.

also I am disappointed that Pradyumna Prabhu was kicked out of ISKCON, he was a perfect sanskrit editor, so much so Srila Prabhupada
referred to him as"Panditji" even in his Srimad Bhagavatam classes,I heard that again in another lecture by Srila Prabhupada recently and you can hear Srila Prabhupada fondness and pride of "Panditj"i and devotees seem to applaud "Panditji" with Jaya and other expressions of gratitude
