Question:

Certain individuals in ISKCON believe that women can offer dandavat pranams (fully prostrate on ground in a rod like fashion). To support the argument they quote SB 8.17.5 where in Aditi fell to the ground like a rod to offer the Lord her respectful obeisances. Also cited is a video clip wherein a mataji is seen offering dandavat pranam to Srila Prabhupada.

Please comment on the above two instances in the context of the proper way of offering obeisances for women.

Educated Animals

August 3, 2011 |

Question: I listened to your lecture tonight and It was very nice. I liked it. But at a point you said "Parents are busy giving 'So called Higher Education' to their children. I do not agree with it. I feel education is very important. Most of the Devotee's in ISKCON are from institutions like MIT,IIT etc… According to me the education plays a important role in understanding the spiritual science. Please make me understand this point.

It is said that the original Macmillian edition of Bhagavad-gita until 1972 was blessed and authorized by Srila Prabhupada and after that in subsequent new printings of BBT, the editors have changed more than 600 hundred words and meanings of Srila Prabhupada.… Expand>

Question:

What do you think about the changes made in Srila Prabhupada’s books? It is said that the original Macmillian edition of Bhagavad-gita until 1972 was blessed and authorized by Srila Prabhupada and after that in subsequent new printings of BBT, the editors have changed more than 600 hundred words and meanings of Srila Prabhupada. This is dangerous enough to destroy the movement in a philosophical way!!

Some disciples of Prabhupada, even when he was still alive, changed some translation of his books and Prabhupada became very angry!!
