Question:

During the Sri Sri Gurvastaka Meditation. Should we meditate on our Guru or on Srila Prabhupada?

Answer by HH Bhakti Vikasa Swami:

Gurv-aṣṭaka meditation. Should we meditate on our guru or on Śrīla Prabhupāda?

You can meditate on both, as suitable. Yeah, as suitable means that not everything may be applicable to your own guru. Śrīla Prabhupāda said that this Gurv-aṣṭaka, it doesn’t apply to all gurus. At least the part of verses five and six specifically refer to those who in their form as a gopī assisting the… Well, especially number six applies to a gopī who is engaged in the direct service of Rādhā and Kṛṣṇa. Therefore I say you can meditate as is suitable. Not everything may be applicable.

Question:

Srila Prabhupada sloka (selected verses) page no:442

Visvaso naiva kartavyah strisu raja-kulesu ca

One can never trust a politician or a women. (Chankya Pandit)

It is only info available in Purana and Srila Prabhupada's selected verses.

My point is due to what reason this thing is written in Purana and Chankya Pandit also written in his book nowadays all over India and world this verse is very famous. Visvaso naiva kartavyah strisu rajkulesu ca. Every one in India they know this verse of Chanakya Pandit including our foundar-acaraya Srila Prabhupada. So this instruction is only for one lady or in general or for all ladies?

Gita Press Editions of Bhagavad-gita

Question:

1) I once saw a visiting devotee who was reading Gita Press edition of Bhagavad-gita. When I asked why he was reading that not Srila Prabhupada's Bhagavad-gita, he said that because his guru said it was good for word to word translations. And then again I saw this with an initiated Indian lady devotee. She was from Delhi but based in Dar es salaam. When I queried her about this, she said the same thing, that the word to word meanings are good (or better? I can't remember exactly what she said).

This didn't seem right, but I wanted to ask your holiness. Are we meant to be referring to Gita Press's Bhagavad-gita at all for any reason?

2) I was in an ISKCON temple here in Africa and saw a compact, one inch size Bhagavad-gita which was from Gita Press and which has slokas in devanagari only and no commentary. I thought that this would be good for carrying around and for chanting Bhagavad-gita slokas as that would be the same anyway in all versions of Bhagavad-gita. Is it OK to just chant the slokas only from this compact Gita Press's Gita or other any other non-ISKCON Bhagavad-gita?
