A Note About This Edition
Śrīla Prabhupāda completed Kṛṣṇa, the Supreme Personality of Godhead (popularly known as Kṛṣṇa Book) in 1970, and his Bhaktivedanta Book Trust published it that year in two volumes and soon again in three. In 1986, the BBT published a one-volume edition with minor revisions.
For the present edition, the editors have gone back to the original tapes of Śrīla Prabhupāda’s dictation of the text and compared them word for word with the previous edition. In the course of their work they found that the original transcribers and editors had for the most part done an excellent job. Occasionally, however, they erred, perhaps owing to Śrīla Prabhupāda’s heavily accented English, the uneven quality of the recordings, or the difficult philosophical concepts in some passages of the Tenth Canto. These errors, constituting less than one percent of the total text, have now been corrected, so that an already perfect book has become even more perfect for its increased fidelity to Śrīla Prabhupāda’s original words.
