She is expert in typing. Amongst the women, she is expert typist. She is expert in so many things. Only defect is that she is woman. But Kṛṣṇa says, striyaḥ śūdrās tathā vaiśyaḥ: "Never mind woman. If she is devotee, she also comes to Me." Striyaḥ śūdrās tathā, "no one barred."


Room Conversation -- November 4, 1976, Vrndavana:

Hari-śauri: We wanted to ask you about . . . he was training up Prem Yogi to do the editing, but there's no one to do the transcribing. We're probably going to . . . we'll have to send the tapes . . .

Prabhupāda: Transcribing? No, why?

Pradyumna: Why can't Pālikā do?

Hari-śauri: She can do it? I don't know.

Prabhupāda: Yes, she can do.

Hari-śauri: Pālikā can do it? That will be all right, then.

Prabhupāda: You also learn.

Hari-śauri: Typing.

Prabhupāda: Yes.

Hari-śauri: Yes.

Prabhupāda: In case there is none, you should do.

Pradyumna: Pālikā's done it before.

Prabhupāda: No, Pālikā can do. I know that.

Akśayananda: She is expert.

Prabhupāda: She is expert in typing. Amongst the women, she is expert typist. She is expert in so many things. Only defect is that she is woman. (laughter) But Kṛṣṇa says, striyaḥ śūdrās tathā vaiśyaḥ: "Never mind woman. If she is devotee, she also comes to Me." Striyaḥ śūdrās tathā, "no one barred." Especially naming striyaḥ śūdrās tathā vaiśya te 'pi yānti parām (BG 9.32). Everyone is to be . . . Kṛṣṇa is so kind. There is no restriction. Everyone is open to Kṛṣṇa consciousness. Jīvera 'svarūpa' haya-nitya kṛṣṇa dāsa (Vanisource:CC Madhya 20.108-109). This is open to all living entities. There is no restriction. And so long this body is there, material, there is distinction between this and that. Otherwise, when you come to the platform of spiritual understanding, paṇḍitāḥ sama-darśinaḥ (BG 5.18), then there is no restriction. Higher, lower, this, that, so many. Gopī-bhartuḥ pada-kamalayor dāsa-dāsānudāsaḥ (CC Madhya 13.80). So any newspaper propaganda against us? No. One complaint is standing, that with our Life Members and others, subscriber, they always complain they are not getting paper, they are not getting book. That is the general complaint.
