Women Shouldn't Be Trusted

Question: 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?… Expand>

Question:

Srila Prabhupada sloka (selected verses) page no:442

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?

What is the Urgency of This Human Birth?

Question:

While preaching I have come across several persons who doubt the cycle of birth and death and when the point comes up about having to go through millions of births in the animal realm, (or any realm for that matter) before coming back to the human platform, I often hear; "Well I was born in this human body and don’t remember my other births, so if this same chance will happen again someday what is the urgency of this human birth?

So basically they are saying they do not remember the suffering of other lives, yet all of a sudden they were born in this human form where things are pretty nice, and they are wondering, what need is there to change. What does it matter if they take so many animal births as long as they don’t remember, since one day they will just be back in a human form again?

So I am wondering how to defeat this argument.
