Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Hari-nāma, this is my Godsister Prabhāvatī, and I give her to you in charity because she is my sister, and I ask you that you must take very good care of her and always protect her. Do you accept her in charity?
Hari-nāma: I accept Prabhāvatī as my wife, and I will protect her . . .
Prabhupāda: Yes. That is the . . .
Hari-nāma: . . . help her in Kṛṣṇa consciousness.
Prabhupāda: The whole idea is that woman require protection. They are very innocent, weaker sex. They should not be given freedom. No. That is not . . . very dangerous. Just like a child cannot be given freedom. It is dangerous. If I give one child freedom, "Alright, you cross this road," that means his life is at risk. Similarly women, they are weaker sex.
Artificially don't try to become one with man, that is not possible. That is not possible. Better to remain protected by man. In the childhood a girl is protected by the father, in youth she is protected by the husband and in the old-age she is protected by the elderly sons. This is the three stages of woman. There is no fourth stage. That is nice.
