Who is Called Sadhu and Acarya?

August 23, 2012 |

Question: I have a question regarding His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Did Srila Prabhupada ever call himself a saint or acarya in any situation? I am asking this because I don't think that I am able to tell who is saint and who is not.

Shall I Become an IAS Officer?

August 3, 2011 |

Question: If a devotee wants to become an IAS officer, should he become? Will it hamper his devotional service and preaching services? I think by becoming an IAS he can help a lot in preaching and reduce hurdles for iskcon. Also it will be good for common masses.

Gita Press Editions of Bhagavad-gita

Question:

1) I once saw a visiting devotee who was reading Gita Press edition of Bhagavad-gita. When I asked why he was reading that not Srila Prabhupada's Bhagavad-gita, he said that because his guru said it was good for word to word translations. And then again I saw this with an initiated Indian lady devotee. She was from Delhi but based in Dar es salaam. When I queried her about this, she said the same thing, that the word to word meanings are good (or better? I can't remember exactly what she said).

This didn't seem right, but I wanted to ask your holiness. Are we meant to be referring to Gita Press's Bhagavad-gita at all for any reason?

2) I was in an ISKCON temple here in Africa and saw a compact, one inch size Bhagavad-gita which was from Gita Press and which has slokas in devanagari only and no commentary. I thought that this would be good for carrying around and for chanting Bhagavad-gita slokas as that would be the same anyway in all versions of Bhagavad-gita. Is it OK to just chant the slokas only from this compact Gita Press's Gita or other any other non-ISKCON Bhagavad-gita?
