Live From Sri Mayapur Candrodaya Mandir! HG Urmila Mataji

part 2

If we meet a man for the first time, we should preach to him, but when we see him again, or he contacts us, then we should put him in contact with other men devotees. Not that we keep in contact and “cultivate” the same man. Otherwise, although he or she didn’t plan to get attached to each other, they will, because sastra says it is butter and fire. Butter melts when close to fire. So the same goes for ALL of us.

The main point is that women should preach to other women, and not travel on their own independently. That is against Srila Prabhupada’s instruction. So women who disobey this instruction of Srila Prabhupada we should not listen from.

In 116 Urmila dd said:

Prabhupada personally asked women to give Bhagavatam class and to lead kirtana, and he did so in many places in the world, including India. He did so when there were senior men present–including himself. He wrote in letters and purports positively about women preaching–even giving us an order to “prove by practical example” that women can be Krishna conscious preachers. A woman can be both a preacher and an exemplary wife and mother (and grandmother, mother-in-law, etc.)

Of course that women can and should preach. We are all disciples and it is our duty to preach. But what Srila Prabhupada says is that women should not be independent. That means that although women will preach, they should stay full-time within their family protection (father, husband or son). Not that she travels independently all around the world. That Srila Prabhupada never said. An example is Yamuna devi. She was doing huge preaching work, but after leaving her husband, Prabhupada wrote to her the following instruction:

It is better that you don’t make a large program. Remain a humble program. In bhakti there is no grotesque program. A humble program is better. We are doing all these grotesque programs to allure the masses. My Guru Maharaja used to say that no one hears from a person coming from a humble, simple life. You remain always very humble….Women when not with husband must live very very humbly and simple life./b>” –letter to Yamuna and Dinatarine 1/13/76, Calcutta

This instruction from Srila Prabhupada has been cited several times on this comment list but you have refused to recognize it even though it applies directly to you.

We women can preach to other women in our local area, or invite them to our home, or to have classes in local temple (just for women), to our neighbor ladies, etc. etc. or to go together (women) in book distribution, etc.

Dear Vishaka-priya Mataji,

Please accept my humble obeisance. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

I am so sorry, I have great respect for you. For me personally you are a great and very humble vaishnavi. The letter I wrote was not addressed to you, it was addressed to Urmila dd. Please I beg you, do not take any offense. There was nothing that was about you.

English is not my first language so maybe I didn’t make myself clear in my previous letter.

Thank you for your instructive and well-wishing letter.

Your humble servant,
Tungavidya devi dasi

“Thank you, Vishaka-priya devi dasi! By your blessings Srila Prabhupada is pleased with me! The words of a Vraja-vasi as you are cannot be false, so surely Krishna will make them true.”

That is very nice appreciation from Vishaka-priya Mataji, but I wonder why is it that everybody else is not also inspired by HDG Srila Prabhupada and Paramatma when they wrote their comments? Their comments were not taken as if Srila Prabhupada speaks also through them. Just because we do not like them then they are envious offenders. That is dangerous and quite immature behavior.

Another point is how do we know who is from Vrindavan and who is not? I do not mean to offend anybody of respected Vaisnavas here, just want to make a point that we have to be in Vrindavan consciousness or Krsna consciousness to know who is from Vrindavan and who is not. So personally I would be more careful of using such high words of appreciation. It is much safer to hear from comments we do not like as they may be our life teacher.

Brihaspati in the Horoscopes of Devotees

Mataji, here is a link of previous articles about HDG Srila Prabhupada’s rising sign

It is very clear that his lagna was Makara not Dhanus. Therefore his Jupiter is in the 8th house NOT the 9th house. As the lord of the 12th Jupiter in the 8th forms a powerful Viparita Rajayoga.

ys, Tungavidya dd
