Jayapataka Swami: They do this game in the grade school. And little kids, they forget exactly what the wordings of the message is. The people in the guru parampara are great devotees and great sages, and they learn the science of Krsna consciousness as it is from their guru. So they learn how to repeat exactly the same message. Of course, after millions of years, it may be changed. And that is why Krsna said that He originally taught it to the Sun god and then it was handed down to Iksavaku and the successive kings and after forty millions years, it was lost! So then He was giving it again. So, it is not so quick that it changed. That is why Srila Prabhupada said it is not so difficult to be a guru, you have to repeat what your guru told you and not change it or add something. That is why we are trying to train the people to understand the message of Srila Prabhupada and hand it down as it is! Over.
