“There is nothing to be added and nothing to be subtracted, because the truth is the truth.”

“There is nothing to be added and nothing to be subtracted, because the truth is the truth.”

Prabhupada said, “There is nothing to be added and nothing to be subtracted, because the truth is the truth. One has to accept, after all, some authority.” – Srimad-Bhagavatam 2.2.32, purport

“That is the way of knowing the knowledge contained in the Vedas. It is not a thing to be understood by one’s erudite scholarship or by the fashionable interpretations of mundane scholars. There is nothing to be added and nothing to be subtracted, because the truth is the truth. One has to accept, after all, some authority. The modern scientists are also authorities for the common man for some scientific truths. The common man follows the version of the scientist. This means that the common man follows the authority. The Vedic knowledge is also received in that way. The common man cannot argue about what is beyond the sky or beyond the universe; he must accept the versions of the Vedas as they are understood by the authorized disciplic succession.”
