Question:

1) According to sastra, matajis are not allowed to go out for material education but are they allowed to do book distribution in various places like trains, stalls etc.?

2) Some time ago your holiness sent a quote from Srila Prabhupada's lecture on BVKS Sanga email group. The text is as follows:

I shall get my next body according to my mental condition at the time of death. So just like our women are taught to become very chaste. Why? That is a process to give her a chance to become a male next life. A woman, if she is educated to become chaste, attached to the husband, then naturally at the time of death, she'll think of the man, and she gets immediately… That is promotion. Similarly, if a man is very much attached to his wife, he'll think at the time of his… He becomes woman. These are the science.

From Srila Prabhupada's lecture on Bhagavad-gita 2.22 — Hyderabad, November 26, 1972

My question in this regard is:

Is it not a good idea that instead of becoming attached with husband, woman develop attachment for Krsna?

A quote in this regard from Srila Prabhupada's Krsna book:

"My dear Lord, You have advised me to select one of the princes such as Sisupala, Jarasandha or Dantavakra, but what is their position in this world? They are always engaged in hard labor to maintain their household life, just like the bulls working hard day and night with an oil-pressing machine. They are compared to asses, beasts of burden. They are always dishonored like dogs, and they are miserly like cats. They have sold themselves like slaves to their wives. Any unfortunate woman who has never heard of Your glories may accept such a man as her husband, but a woman who has learned about You — that You are praised not only in this world but in the halls of the great demigods like Lord Brahma and Lord Siva — will not accept anyone besides You as her husband. A man within this material world is just a dead body. In fact, superficially, the living entity is covered by this body, which is nothing but a bag of skin decorated with a beard and mustache, hairs on the body, nails on the fingers, and hairs on the head. Within this decorated bag are bunches of muscles, bundles of bones, and pools of blood, always mixed with stool, urine, mucus, bile and polluted air and enjoyed by different kinds of insects and germs. A foolish woman accepts such a dead body as her husband and, in sheer misunderstanding, loves him as her dear companion. This is possible only because such a woman has never relished the ever-blissful fragrance of Your lotus feet."
