BHAGAVAD-GITA AS IT IS 2.51. Four versions. BGAII 2.52. Criminal replacement of Srila Prabhupada’s original “callous” with the “moderated” “indifferent” five times.

 

ORIGINAL TRANSCRIPT by Srila Prabhupada.

Thus by being engaged in devotional service of the Lord great sages or devotees are able to get free from the resultant actions of work in the material world and thus become (free) from the cycle of birth and death and go back to Godhead where there is no more any miseries.

BGAII V1:

The wise, engaged in devotional service, take refuge in the Lord, and free themselves from the cycle of birth and death by renouncing the fruits of action in the material world. In this way they can attain the state beyond all miseries.

BGAII V2:

By thus engaging in devotional service to the Lord, great sages or devotees free themselves from the results of work in the material world. In this way they become free from the cycle of birth and death and attain the state beyond all miseries [by going back to Godhead].

Proposed final version 3 or BGAII V3, 2.51, verse only:

By being thus engaged in devotional service of the Lord, great sages or devotees are able to get free from the resultant actions of work in the material world and thus become free from the cycle of birth and death as well and go back to Godhead, where there are no more miseries.

 

As far as BGAII 2.52 is concerned, the arrogant and offensive know-better-than-Guru team of Jayadvaita Swami have replaced with great obstinacy and systematic approach five times Srila Prabhupada’s original “callous” with the “moderated” “indifferent.” There is no doubt about it, such a consistently defiant attitude toward Guru will lead these criminal third class vaishya brains, with their false intellectualism, to their own destruction. It is only a matter of time. Such defiance of Guru is suicidal policy. This has been illustrated in Shastra on many occasions, perhaps the most famous example being when King Indra neglects / insults his own Guru, the priest Brihaspati, also known as Angirasa, the son of Maharishi Angira. “Because of his disrespectful behavior toward his spiritual master, Indra lost all his opulence and was conquered by the demons, who defeated the demigods in a great fight and occupied Indra’s throne. ” SB 6.7 Intro. Srila Prabhupada mentions also in SB 1.9.6-7 that the sage Gritsamada was as great as Brihaspati. Additionally “Once he (Brihaspati) cursed Indra, who thus had to become a hog on the earth and was unwilling to return to heaven.” SB 1.9.8.

Proposed final version BGAII V3, 2.52

Translation

When your intelligence has passed out of the dense forest of delusion, you shall become callous to all that has been heard and all that is to be heard.
