Question: I was wondering what you recommend to your female disciples – is it better for them to be housewives and simply support their families, therefore promoting a vaisnavism lifestyle which is vital in ISKCON? Or is it better for them to pursue some education and taking up some service opportunities in the movement?

Jayapataka Swami: Yes! I don’t see why, a lady cannot do, can be a wife and can study! As I suggest. Some of our ladies have also Bhakti Sastri, Bhakti Vaibhav and Bhakti Vedanta. So, you can do both. You can study Srila Prabhupada books and also be a wife. Haribol!...
