Live From Sri Mayapur Candrodaya Mandir! HG Urmila Mataji

Dear Vaishnavas and Vaishnavis,

Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

First I would like to thank Mother Urmila for a wonderful class on the education of devotee children worldwide. Stress on a Vaishnava education is overlooked in so many continents and all grihastha devotees strive protecting their Vaikuntha children sent to us by the Supreme Lord. And who more qualified to speak on this topic, but one who has spent the better part of her life for the welfare of many devotee children.

I am shocked that some of the devotees here have not mentioned anything about the class and have taken all this valuable time and energy to attack her qualifications and even her character!

I am shocked that today, in the year 2011, there are those that speak so harshly against mataji devotees, just because they are woman! I actually cant believe that there are still such devotees so constricted by the body! If a woman mataji has been asked to give a class to men, men’s minds will get polluted?! How low-class are those Vaishnava men that they can only see a woman as a sexual maya devi?! This is how lDear devotees, these were the arguments we heard in the 70s and 80s in ISKCON.. Are we still so stuck on the bodily platform, that on a public well-known forum as Dandavats, we are still discussing this?! Srila Prabhupada’s mission was ‘pascatya desa tarine’.. How will we assist his mission going forward in the 22nd century with such parochial philosophical ideas as this!

I am thankful that Mother Urmila hasn’t spent her valuable time responding to all these comments..

Akruranath Prabhu has already quoted many wonderful quotes from Srila Prabhupada. So I will not get into the details of why qualified woman should be encouraged to give classes.

But I will most definitely respond to those of you who have attacked Mother Urmila’s standing as a Vaishnavi, her character and her words. Give up your envy! Take a look at her public and private life and notice how, despite many struggles she may have been through in the past thirty years, she is still completely and totally focused on her service to her beloved spiritual master Srila Prabhupada! She has sacrificed so much personally for the sake of her authorities and Srila Prabhupada’s instructions! She is still following the sadhana path very strictly and her character is above average! By attacking her, you are committing Vaishnava aparadha.

Your servant,
Gopi gita dd
