Kaisori (dasi) (BBT): “The changes” for chapter four of Bhagavad-Gita As It
are now online at

    out when a typist skipped from one instance of “causeless
    mercy” to the next.
  • Spelling errors corrected, both for Sanskrit (texts 5, 11, and
    12) and for English (text 10).
  • In the word meanings for text 31, a word meaning left out by
    Srila Prabhupada and replaced by the editor with a meaning that was

Also included is the complete manuscript page for text 34.

The changes for the Preface, the Introduction, and the previous
