“I can understand that you have considerably advanced in Krsna consciousness because your heart is simple. Girls and women are generally very soft-hearted and they take things very easily, but then there is also chance of being misled. So you chant the holy name of Krsna and Krsna will keep you
from being mislead.”

(SPL to Indira and Ekayani, 17th December, 1967)


 “Regarding lecturing by women devotees: I have informed you that in the service of the Lord there is no distinction of caste, or creed, colour, or sex. In the Bhagavad-gita, the Lord especially mentions that even a woman who has taken seriously is also destined to reach Him. We require a person who is in the knowledge of Krsna, that is the only qualification of a person speaking. It doesn’t matter what he is. Materially a woman may be less intelligent than a man, but spiritually everyone is pure soul. In the absolute plane there is no gradation of higher and lower. If a woman can lecture nicely and to the point, we should hear carefully. That is our philosophy. But if a man can speak better than a woman, the man should be given first preference. But even though a woman is less intelligent, a sincere soul should be given proper chance to speak, because we want so many preachers, both men and women.”

(SPL to Jaya Govinda, 8th Febuary, 1968) 

“That is a very good proposal, to get Indian pavilion for our kirtana program. Please try for it. And we can exhibit some of our paintings, and pictures. When I go to Montreal, I shall take selected pictures from Jadurani and as well as some of the pictures by Gaurasundara and Govinda published in our Back to Godhead. Jadurani has now become a nice preacher. I have report  from Satsvarupa that she gives lectures very nicely. If we open a pavilion I shall take Jadurani also at that time so she can deliver nice lectures. I shall probably be coming there to Montreal by first week in June.”
