To inspire interest in thoughtful analysis of ideas presented as Gaudiya siddhanta but are actually antithetical to it, which we must identify and confront on a regular basis during our preaching activities, I am introducing what Srila Prabhupada Swami Maharaja termed a “transcendental competition.”
“I understand from Karandhara that you will be setting up another ISKCON Press in Los Angeles to engage our New York Press in transcendental competition for printing my books.
