The 1979 English edition of Life Comes From Life (LCFL), suggests a historically accurate  account of conversations that took place in 1973 between A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami and some of his leading disciples on the topic of science and Krishna consciousness. But in the early 1990s, the Bhaktivedanta Archives published reliable transcripts of the recorded conversations, and a comparative study shows the recording transcripts are significantly different from the content presented in LCFL. This presentation will compare the content of the two, while considering the 1979 project’s editorial history.


Also presented at the Bhakti-Yoga & Science Conference, Bhaktivedanta Institute for Higher Studies, Gainesville, FL (November 13, 2016) and included in the BIHS Partial Collection of Abstracts and Papers Submitted for Consideration: 2019 BIHS “Consciousness in Science” Conference and other recent workshops & seminars.
