See the Changes

Why the second editions of Bhagavad-gita As It Is, Srimad Bhagavatam and Caitanya Caritamrita? How do they differ from the first editions?

Here Jayadvaita Swami, who assisted in publishing the first editions and served as English editor for the second, presents and discusses some of the more interesting and instructive revisions. Here you’ll find revised passages side by side with the versions from the original manuscript.

You'll also find an annotated scanned copy of the 1972 edition of Bhagavad-Gita As It Is on which Jayadvaita Swami marked the revisions for the addition of 1983. The annotations were added in 2009 by Jayadvaita Swami. (sample pages shown below)
