Proper Gender Roles in ISKCON Must be Authoritatively and Clearly Defined

Hare Krishna prabhu - Can you provide a quote that Srila Prabhupada concluded that intermingling could not be changed?

Srila Prabhupada seems to be saying that one can not change social customs suddenly - not that they can never be changed.

Srila Prabhupada was heavy in his preaching about free mixing. The quote from him above is not saying that free mixing is fine it seems to be about how others used non mixing and other social criteria as criticism of vaishnavas and how they see this social dharma above spreading of krishna concsiousness.

The idea is that although social dharma is secondary - the degree it is present to that degree it can help one advance as the environment/culture reduces the number of obstacles.

“Social freedom of man and woman, especially among the younger section, is certainly a great stumbling block on the path of spiritual progress.” (SB 3.12.28 Purport)

“Because the system in your country to allow the boys and girls enjoying sex life from the very early age makes them most irresponsible and careless…. If things are allowed to go on like this, the future of the Western world is very dark.” (68-08-08.Sat)

“With woman you should be very, very cautious and careful, as much as required, not free mingling. No. Therefore, according to Vedic civilization, there is always a separation between woman and men. Here in India we find that whenever there is some meeting the women are sitting separately, men are sitting separately. This is required.” (760417sb.bom)

“If one cannot understand the basic principle of restraining association between man and woman, he is to be considered an animal.” (SB 7.12.9 Purport)
