Everybody gets the mercy…

This picture is from Summer 1972 taken on or around 5th Ave NYC. I had just turned 18 and shaven up for the first time as a brahmacari. The gentleman had heard the chanting party and asked to find out more. Not knowing much and being unsure of myself, I simply read to him from Srila Prabhupada’s “On Chanting Hare Krsna” pamphlet. Of all the senses, the ear is the most essential for acquiring spiritual knowledge. Because by hearing, the sound may penetrate our heart and change our entire way of thinking, feeling and willing.

Live From Sri Mayapur Candrodaya Mandir! HG Urmila Mataji

In the Mahabharata, it is explained, tarko ‚Äėpratistha srutayo vibhinnah nasau rsir yasya matam na bhinna. There is no end to argument, and everyone thinks that their opinion is superior than the rest. dharmasya tattvam nihito guhayam. To understand the truth of religious principle, it is very difficult. mahajano yena gatah sa panthah. Therefore we have to accept that way which is given by the mahajana. (cf, SP Lecture 9-30-73)
I was fortunate to have joined the Krsna consciousness movement during the time of the manifest pastimes of Srila Prabhupada. From the very beginning, I had the opportunity to listen to the classes of Jadurani along with Gauri, Sunita, Jayadvaita (brahmacari) and others. Jadurani‚Äôs classes especially were second to none. It was only years later in 1974-1975 when some sannyasis returning from India started to propagate this concocted idea that it was not ‚ÄúVedic‚ÄĚ or proper for women to be giving class. Tragically, this policy subsequently became engrained into ISKCON culture for the better part of twenty years or more. It needs to be reiterated that this was not Prabhupada‚Äôs idea but was a latter-day invention perpetrated by immature sannyasis who would inevitably fall down due to their own agitated minds.

We can argue and debate back and forth until the cows come home, but the fact is that ‚Äúexample is more powerful than precept,‚ÄĚ and Prabhupada wanted his daughters to be learned in the philosophy and preach just as their godbrothers. Spiritually, there is no distinction of either male or female in these regards. Otherwise, it is simply bodily conception under the guise of a spiritual pretense. Those who attempt to use Prabhupada‚Äôs own words to deny the egalitarian practices he himself instituted simply make themselves foolish.
