Visvaso naiva kartavyah strisu raja-kulesu ca
One can never trust a politician or a women. (Chankya Pandit)
It is only info available in Purana and Srila Prabhupada's selected verses.
My point is due to what reason this thing is written in Purana and Chankya Pandit also written in his book nowadays all over India and world this verse is very famous. Visvaso naiva kartavyah strisu rajkulesu ca. Every one in India they know this verse of Chanakya Pandit including our foundar-acaraya Srila Prabhupada. So this instruction is only for one lady or in general or for all ladies?

Question: I have been teaching in ISKCON schools in the USA for the past 30 yrs. Some of these schools (in the past) had boys' ashrams, which I believe is a good thing provided there are qualified teachers. Most (if not all) of the present ISKCON schools in America are day schools. Do you think ashrams or gurukulas will ever be revived here in America in the near future? What can those of us who still believe in that system do to promote the idea?

Question: Maharaj, I wish to know if addition of some lines like jhalmala jhalamala bole etc by some devotees is acceptable? These lines are not there in the song book but some devotees say they are extra lines which is added to enhance the song. I wish to know if this practice is right or wrong.

Question: My question is that Srila Prabhupad used to blaspheme for all new developments but we are utilizing all the modern items for our day to day use nowadays like — staying in a big building, travelling through airplane, using modern equipments for our health… how we do counteract when people ask that one way you are condemning modern civilization but in other than you are using the modern utilities…

Question: In one of Maharaja’s answers, he mentioned that it is not respectful to begin a letter with Hare Krishna/Haribol when it is addressed to seniors. My question is; will this be applicable when physically addressing while showing pranam i.e do we need to just show pranam and wait till the senior devotee say Hare Krishna and then respond… Expand>

Do we only offer dandavats to our diksa-guru not the other gurus or sannyasis in temple hall in front of Srila Prabhupada or the deities?^ Show less

Question: I have experienced that there is conflict between devotees serving under different leaders: many devotees consider their own service or approach to bhakti as the most authentic, and associating with different genres of devotees sometimes creates confusion in my mind. Why does this conflict emerge although all devotees are engaged in service of Krishna? How can we overcome conflict and instead cooperate to fight against our common enemies, impersonalism and materialism.
