Hari Bol Prabhu, Please accept my pranams, All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
For example the archives of 1974, I see that there are letters untill 24 april 1974 but then may 1st starts. However on Prabhupadabooks.com there are alot more letters between 24 april 1974 and 1 may 1974. Are the originals not avialable?

Hari Bol Prabhuji,
Please accept my humble obeisances, All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
I thank you for your reply. I will follow up on you advice. Also, lately I do not go to the ISKCON temples anymore. I do have a couple of devotee friends who, like me, are also aware of the deviations. Occasionaly persons come to us and start attacking us. They talk about God and why he is not helping the poor and why is there war. Thanks to Srila Prabhupada’s books and also your articles, I can give them a fitting reply but when seeing with how much anger there is in them, I say to them: I can answer you but it would only hurt you. Since he is not ready to accept Bhagavad Gita As It Is, how will he be ready to hear? So I have decided to altogether stop visiting any temple (both ISKCON and Hindu) and also, as far as possible, avoid non-devotee association. Again I thank you Prabhu.

I am living in Western Europe. After reading your article, isn’t it so that I should accept all kinds of work (doesn’t matter what, since we are in a crisis here at the moment) as long as I take the result (the money) and spent it all on Krsna Consiousness (my own rented room, where I can chant and listen about Sri Krsna’s Names and Pasttimes, to buy ingredients, fruits to make Prasadam). Is this the idea? Since I got offered a job as a cleaner, I wanted to mold my life in this way. Previously I thought of joining ashrams in here or in India but now after the whole GBC fiasco, I thought of staying here in the material society and working hard and earning the money which I spent 100% on my own progress of Krsna Consiousness. Also by buying Original Srila Prabhupada books and distributing them, since here I see modified books being distributed. Is this idea a good one? Please advice Prabhuji, I thank you in advance.

So you believe in the moon-landings?
Couple of things to think about:
-Why did they go only in the 60s? I mean, why did the humans only go in the 60s there and since then only probes?
-Alot of people, like myself, would like to believe the moon-landings and book a ticket to go on vacation there, why this cannot happen?
-Did you with your own eyes, see the moon-landings? No, you saw it on television.
-Why did Armstrong, hit that american investigator when he asked him to swear on the bible to “prove” that he went to the moon?
-Did you investigate how many times they tried to get to the moon before it was succesfully done by Armstrong and his crew?
-Did you read Srila Prabhupada’s Sri Isopanisad book? He explains how humans can get knowledge (ascending or descending process), what the fault is of the ascending process and the 4 defects of the humans who use their senses to gain knowledge (by the ascending process).
Be critical, do not believe everything on television. And yes, you can fool the entire humanrace, because we are now in Kali Yuga, we want to gratify our senses, we want to lord it over Material Nature, and fot this we will be bewildered by others who also want this goal.
There is only one science and that is the science of the soul, who takes it to Krishna Consiousness. Every other subject, on the material platform, is none-sense. These atheists, use their senses, via the ascending process to gain knowledge, hijacking the term science and using this term for their acquired knowledge. Thus one person bewilders all those who chooses to believe persons who have gained knowledge through their senses. Hope it is clear now.

I read an article on iskcon times by Chanchalapathi Dasa Prabhuji.
This is the article: http://www.iskcontimes.com/archive/Understanding-the-value-of-human-life
It starts with the verse:
Srimad Bhagavatam Canto – 1.14.10
apapesu sva bhrtyesu
papam krtam tad bhagavan
sarvatma ksantum arhati
However, when I go to prabhupadabooks.com and go to Srimad Bhagavatam, Canto 1, Chapter 14, verse 10: I see:
divyān bhaumān sadaihikān
dāruṇān śaṁsato ‘dūrād
bhayaṁ no buddhi-mohanam
This is an other verse. When searching the verse in the article, I find it in Canto 1, Chapter 18, verse 47: https://prabhupadabooks.com/sb/1/18/47
My question is, which one is the correct version? Because I thought that both ISKCON Times and Krishna.org (prabhupadabooks.com) were talking of and distributing the original Srila Prabhupada books.
Thanks in advance.
