Srila Prabhupada Today


Bhaktivedanta Book Trust

Nov 26, 2017 — INDIA (SUN) —

November 26, 1976 : Vrindavan

Srila Prabhupada initiates a small group of devotees; among them was Mahavira's wife, Jaya Gauri. Srila Prabhupada told Mahavira, "Your wife, she is a good wife." Mahavira was very happy to have his wife personally certified by Srila Prabhupada. (Srila Prabhupada treated his disciples as equals, regardless of gender. He propagated that according to the bodily conception of life, there are men and women, but according to the spiritual conception - bhagavat-dharma - there are only souls. Women were involved in Krishna consciousness from the earliest days of the movement. Women participated actively in worship, cooking and serving Krishna and the spiritual master.)
