Dear Mother Sita,
Thank you for your efforts , i fully agree with your comments and also support Mohana Mohini dd’s comments about you.
Having been brought in a purely traditional family in India where women very much still understand that their greatest power is in being chaste , simple and devoted to husband and keeping themselves only among the company of women.
Srila Prabhupada never introduced anything new , whatever he did was proper application of the sastras for propogation of dharma. It is for us to understand or misunderstand it.
Simply put Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu’s women followers bowed down to him from a distance. Chhota Haridas was chastised and banished for a small offence. Material world is cruel and frustrating. Lets be careful in applying sastra and making interpretations so that we pass on Pure Krishna Consciousness to the next generation , not a misinterpreted version.
Hare Krishna !

Dear Sitaram prabhu,
Regarding women being subservient , its obvious as we see the highest ashrama of sannyasa is not meant for women , they are meant to be under the protection of Father , Husband and son. Hence they are dependent and they must be cared for and protected. Of course woman has a very big role to play in society and are equally respected , however the role they play is very different. We should respect this difference created by the Lord Himself and play our role accordingly.
Of course in Kali-yuga with the predominance of Rajo and Tamo guna we are unable to create ideal conditions for a proper grihasta life or even for our children, day by day we see our youth is being dragged to technology and factories and work as sudras , with urbanization most values are lost. 100,000 cows are killed in India alone ,in the land of Dharma everyday… without cow there is no dharma. The food that we eat full of fertilizer and pesticide. The jobs that we do in tamo-guna… Given the above conditions even devotees are mostly struggling to make a good living and keep up their devotion and lead a proper family life.
That is why Srila Prabhupada propagated the creation of a varnasrama society in his last days , so that we live peacefully with land and cows , only then we can see real dharma , real family life. And yes, i would really love to see the original texts of your argument as a pointed out by Shyamasundara prabhu.
I have just tried to humbly present my points in a real scenario that we face. Cities are not the best places to live where cows ,civilization ,childhood, humanity are simply slaughtered and sold everyday. The atmosphere is full of disturbance and only if we are able to really chant sincerely and perform nice devotion are we able to come to some level of goodness and then really understand Srila Prabhupada books in their right sense.
Hence i agree with Shaymasundara prabhu that woman should be subservient as his arguments are backed up by sastra and we should try to understand this properly.
As also stated a link to the original text as said by Shyamasundara prabhu is desirable.
These are only my humble views and i beg vaishnavas to correct me ,Begging forgiveness for any offenses committed from vaishnavas .
