From Prabhupāda Lilamrita:

Śrīla Prabhupāda became very angry and denounced the "rascal Sanskrit scholars." "A little learning," he said "is dangerous. Immediately they think they have become big scholar, thinking, "I shall arrange!' And then they write all nonsense." He continued speaking about the mistake for half an hour. He was disturbed. He ordered Tamāla Kṛṣṇa to write at once to the BBT and stop these speculations by his disciples-changing his books in the name of editing The devotees were startled to see Prabhupāda so angry; he was supposed to be peacefully relishing a Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam reading here in his garden.

Such a change was very serious, he said, because it changed the meaning. "Even if the authorized ācāryas would make a mistake," he said, "it would not be changed. This is ārṣa-prayoga. In this way the ācāryas are honored."

By Śrīla Prabhupāda's strong reaction to this one printed mistake, he was again stressing the great importance of his books. "Whatever I have wanted to say," he explained, "I have said in my books. If I live, I will say something little more. If you want to know me, read my books."
