BBTI Considers "More Book Editing" (from KD)

KD: BBTI is considering removing "controversial statements" from Prabhupada's  Srimad Bhagavatam. The other day I was in the room with the book distribution Minister Vijay prabhu, who hosts that seminar here in Mayapur. The talk was about the editing of Prabhupada's books, and Vijay prabhu said that at least the Bhagavatam was okay, and the host, a senior american devotee, said that he begged to differ on that opinion.

Then he told us that he had been speaking to Dravida prabhu who had told him that the BBTI had been considering removing all of Prabhupada's "controversial statements" about women from the Bhagavatam for some time, and that it seemed that the time was getting close for them to actually do it. Only time will tell if they will actually do so.

[PADA: Yes, well we expected further changes, its just a question of how they will rationalized making further changes. Meanwhile, it seems there is no one actually dedicated to re-making all original books among the GBC's elite? If there is someone who is promoting that process, who is that? We keep hearing "well not everyone agrees to the changes," fine, but who are those who are objecting? And where exactly can we find their writings of protest etc.? 

At the same time, Jayadvaita swami (Jay Israel) has been saying their GBC guru parampara contains illicit sex with men, women and children. But that is not embarrassing to be stated? The books of the acharya are an embarrassment, but saying that acharyas and messiahs from heaven are poking everything in the house except maybe the family goat, that is fine with the current GBC's folks? Or what?  

Meanwhile our pals like Ajit Krishna, Bhakta Torben, Hanuman Croatia etc. are infuriated we are not surrendering to their "bona fide guru parampara," ok the same people who say acharyas are often debauchees, and we need to re-edit all the books. We need to surrender to the process that is making debauchees into acharyas, and they are re-editing the books? And the ritviks are bogus, because they are protesting these bogus out croppings? ys pd]
