By His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
mātrā svasrā duhitrā vā nāviviktāsano bhavet
balavān indriya-grāmo vidvāmsam api karsati
A grhastha, vānaprastha, sannyāsī and brahmacārī should be very careful when associating with women. One is forbidden to sit down in a solitary place even with one’s mother, sister or daughter. In our Krishna consciousness movement it has been very difficult to disassociate ourselves from women in our society, especially in Western countries. We are therefore sometimes criticized, but nonetheless we are trying to give everyone a chance to chant the Hare Krishna mahā-mantra and thus advance spiritually. If we stick to the principle of chanting the Hare Krishna mahā-mantra offenselessly, then, by the grace of Srīla Haridāsa Thākura, we may be saved from the allurement of women. However, if we are not very strict in chanting the Hare Krishna mahā-mantra, we may at any time fall victim to women.
