Thank you maharaja for bringing up this issue. Though some may think it politically incorrect, it needs to be discussed
It’s wonderful seeing properly dressed, chaste young ladies, engaging in drama, dancing and so on. A good example are the many beautiful girls on the Polish tour that Indradyumna maharaja organizes. So many of the youth are attracted and young ladies flock to the sari booth and are eager to dress like the devotee girls.
Unfortunately, many of our devotee girls are adopting the Britney Speers way of dressing by exposing too much of their bodies. It’s unattractive, unchaste and definitely sends the wrong message. Not so long ago, my teenage son told a young lady (his peer) to cover her exposed body in front of a sanyasis. The father of the girl chastised him saying it was inappropriate. I don’t know where I heard this but it applies.”If you speak nonsense they’ll praise you but if you speak the truth they’ll ridicule you.”
The following excerpt for Srila Prabhupada’s purport to SB 6:5:14 says it all.
“Today it has become a much advertised fashion for a woman to go almost naked, covering the lower part of her body only slightly, in order to draw the attention of a man to her private parts for sexual enjoyment. The intelligence engaged to attract a man to the lower part of the body is the intelligence of a professional prostitute”
So mothers teach your daughters to dress in a chaste manner both in the temple and out and to forget tattoos as they just bring attention to the parts of the body they’re displayed on.
Thank you Syamasundara prabhu for the detailed information regarding covering the head. It’s interesting that when you look at the old Iskcon movies the matajis always covered their heads.
