Question: When we have so many exalted female devotees who are very respected and advanced in their Kṛṣṇa consciousness, how do we understand and explain to other, another instruction of the scriptures that women are less intelligent. Is this the case that only women who are completely in Kṛṣṇa consciousness are intelligent?

Jayapatākā Swami: You see, Kṛṣṇa said many things in śāstra. Scripture says, Śrīla Prabhupāda was quoting some material scientists were saying that ladies were having lesser brain weight than men. Normally, we see ladies are less intelligent than brāhmaṇas or kṣatriyas. That means that ladies might not have very philosophical brain. But śāstra also says, that generally ladies are more devotional. So all religious institutions – churches, mosques, temples, they have more ladies. So, why do you see just one side? That is why we want all our disciples, men and women, study Śrīla Prabhupāda books, and in this way, follow Lord Caitanya’s order to study Kṛṣṇa’s teachings. We are very grateful that some ladies have also got their Bhakti-vedānta degrees and some are also studying Bhakti-vedānta.
