The "Rascal Editors" conversation, which took place in Vrindavan on June 22, 1977, has been known to Hare Krishna devotees for more than thirty years. And for more than thirty years, most devotees have been wrong about what mistake he had found. In 1976, some revisions were made to a portion of the First Canto that included the verse that kicked off the conversation: SB 1.2.5. It's interesting to note that by June 1977, the time of the conversation, the revised First Canto was available in many centers, but apparently not at the Krishna-Balaram Mandir. So Tamal Krishna Goswami and the others were reading from the old version, which contained the mistake in the word-by-word meanings that had already been corrected by the the BBT.
