One who understands and appreciates the disciplic succession is certainly advanced, and we should always be very careful to give full respect to those who have so carefully handled this Divine Fruit of transcendental knowledge before us. Even a slight change will spoil it. That is why I have always been so careful to give you only those things which I have heard from my Guru Maharaja.
(Vrndavana, India August 1967 Letter to: Devotee & Hamsaduta)
HKC (Hare Krishna Community) is an indian-based community in Jaipur and outside of the city. Many people considering them strict followers of Srila Prabhupada.
But something seems to be totally wrong in their community as they are observed to be distributors of the book changers BBT India. Besides original books they are distributing changed books from BBT India like the Bhagavad Gita, Srimad Bhagavatam And Krishna Book.
“Simply because there is no stock of books, we can do anything whimsically??? Is this logic?“(Letter: Bhargava, May 29, 1976)
Recently in an official statement HKC were even claiming to distribute the original books of Srila Prabhupada (of course no mentioning of the changed ones):
“Here at HKC Jaipur we accept Srila Prabhupada as the only Diksha guru. We read and distribute Srila Prabhupada’s original books, and devotees here are listening to Srila Prabhupada’s audio recordings throughout the day.”
“They will write Bhagavad-gita in a distorted way”…
Srila Prabhupada….”But some way or other, if it is distorted at a certain point, then the knowledge is lost. As soon as any of the disciples in the succession distort the knowledge, then it is lost. That is being explained. Sa kalena mahata. The time is very powerful. It changes. That is the… Time means it changes, kills the original position. You have got experience. You purchase one anything. It is very fresh, new. But time will kill it. It will become shabby. It will be useless at a time, in due course of time. So time is fighting. This material time, it is called kala. Kala means death. Or kala means the black snake. So black snake destroys. As soon as touches anything, it is destroyed. Similarly, kala… This kala is also another form of Krsna. So kalena mahata. Therefore it is called mahata. It is very powerful. It is not ordinary thing. Mahata. Its business is to destroy. Sa kalena iha nasta. So by due course of time… Because how the kala can destroy? As soon as kala sees that you are distorting, then it will be lost. So don’t try to understand Bhagavad-gita from persons who are under the influence of kala–past, present, future. Don’t try to understand Bhagavad-gita from so-called rascal philosophers, commentators, and… They will write Bhagavad-gita in a distorted way. Somebody will say, “There was no Krsna.”
(Bhagavad-gita Lecture, 4.2., Bombay, 22nd March, 1974)
Funding FISKCON India with buying books from them
73-11-14. Letter: Sukadeva
“Regarding the Gaudiya Math books being circulated there, who is distributing? Who is sending these books? The Gaudiya Math does not sell our books, why we should sell their books. Who has introduced these books? Let me know. THESE BOOKS SHOULD NOT AT ALL BE CIRCULATED IN OUR SOCIETY. BHAKTI VILAS TIRTHA IS VERY MUCH ANTAGONISTIC TO OUR SOCIETY AND HE HAS NO CLEAR CONCEPTION OF DEVOTIONAL SERVICE. HE IS CONTAMINATED. ANYWAY, WHO HAS INTRODUCED THESE BOOKS? YOU SAY THAT YOU WOULD READ ONLY ONE BOOK IF THAT WAS ALL THAT I HAD WRITTEN, SO YOU TEACH OTHERS TO DO LIKE THAT. You have very good determination.”
(Conclusion: Books that are contaminating ones heart ❤️ should not even be circulated)
With selling many Gitas and Krishna Books they are supporting FISKCON in a financial way. And that they are doing since years! If we really want the original books we have to stop buying and advertising them with ur preaching. Otherwise we are greatly offending Srila Prabhupada!
[…] If one becomes an offender to his spiritual master or the Supreme Personality of Godhead, he falls down to the material platform to merely speculate.”
“As soon as there is a little impurity, the whole thing will deteriorate and go to HELL. We shall not like to take the credit in that case, therefore I am praying simply that all of you, my advanced disciples, GBC men, Temple officers, will become sober-minded.” (SPL December 29,1972)
