Udayananda: In 1976 at the Mayapur festival, my friend Pragosh helped me to get on a morning walk with Srila Prabhupada along with other bramacharis and sannyasis. Prabhupada was very grave and animated at the same time on this walk. He was talking about making vows and keeping vows. He started talking about the form of a woman as the whole entrapment of this world for a man. He was saying that the attachment to the form of a woman for enjoyment will keep one from going back to Godhead. Prabhupada went on and said, “Especially for sannyasis.” He said, “Vantashi. It’s like you vomit.

A sannyasi gives up this material world like one vomits.” Prabhupada was very graphic. He continued, “And then you lick it up. Vantashi.” No one wanted to look at Prabhupada. If he wanted he could burn you to ashes. Everyone was gulping. Prabhupada went on walking. Then he stopped and said, “If you can conquer woman, you can capture Krishna.” It obviously wasn’t a physical thing like, “We’re going to fight.” He meant that men especially sannyasis, need to conquer their attachment for enjoying a woman. Prabhupada said how vigilant one must be as a sannyasi not to have association with women. Because for a sannyasi to again take up the association of women, “vantashi”. Of course I became a grhastha after that, but I still remember that penetrating instruction, especially for sannyasis and bramacharis, no cheating because Krishna is there in our heart. And “If you conquer women, you can capture Krishna.”
