What you'll see is Jayadvaita Swami's copy of the 1972 Bhagavad-gita As It Is on which he did the revisions for the 1983 second edition. You'll see the revisions, just as he made them.

Jayadvaita Swami has added annotations throughout, telling the reasons for individual revisions. Often the annotations include the text of what Srila Prabhupada originally said. Several audio clips of Srila Prabhupada speaking from the Introduction are also included.

This document is the first installment of a series that will cover the entire book.
