Vaishnava Kantha-Hara
Posted on September 17, 2015 · Posted in Digital Books (PDF)


Vaishnava Kantha-Hara was removed years ago from our website because of the unscrupulous ISKCON editors who were trusted to proofread and then publish this book. At the time of publishing they decided on their own to make severe changes to the text prior to printing without informing the author of this otherwise wonderful book. This book was published at a time when editing and publishing decisions were not entirely secure and was open to this type of unauthorized editing to occur. It is not surprising that the same occurred to the books of our Paramguru Srila Prabhupada while he was still physically present, and that later as well his books continued to be changed by ISKCON after he departed from this world.

After Vaishnava Kantha-Hara book was printed, Sri Krsna Balaram Swami wrote his now famous book entitled Guru Nirnaya Dipika (The Scriptural Decision on Who Can Become Guru and Who Cannot), which puts to rest any doubts about the subject, this being one of the subjects purposefully changed in Vaishnava Kantha-Hara by the editors. Unfortunately the book was printed in this way and the changes were only found out after the book had been already printed. We currently have an old stock of the book in our warehouse and would be ready to sell the entire stock for 1/10 of the price to anyone interested.
