Mother Urmila: 
Enlightening Words

Dear Prabhus,

Hare Krishna. I have been following the women’s issues’ debates/comments from time to time. Frankly, most of the articles seem to drag one’s consciousness to the bodily platform, in my opinion, which is the antithesis of what attracted me to come to the Krishna Consciousness Movement in the mid-seventies.

However, whenever I read articles by devotees such as Mother Urmila, I feel my consciousness immediately getting in touch with "spirituality" and consequently feel spiritual satisfaction. It is the same feeling of having resolution of all doubts that I used to experience after reaching the temple and associating with devotees when I first started coming to the temple. 

By reading her replies, I really feel that "Here is a person on the spiritual platform." Devotees such as her not only speak with the detachment that comes from being spiritually realized but also explain matters that can affect our spiritual lives, philosophical and mundane, in a very cogent manner. The point about women also having varna is very enlightening.

Consequently, all the "dualities" of this world, i.e. male, female, young, old, etc. become superfluous. And isn’t that one of the experiences we had when we came in touch with Shrila Prabhupada?
