The teachings of Srila Prabhupada on women and anti-feminism
The purpose of this essay is to address the issue of feminism and misandry (hatred of men, the opposite of misogyny) and how it has destroyed modern society. We will be analyzing many of the statements made by Srila Prabhupada about women, their role in society, and the anti-feminism stance of his teachings.
Before continuing, let me say a few words of encouragement. Over the past few years, a major anti-feminism backlash has been occurring in the western countries like America and Europe, and even somewhat in Asia and India. This has become manifest in a few different ways.
First, the number of anti-feminism and men’s rights websites has increased dramatically over the past few years. Second, we see an increasing number of men who refuse to get married. As one man put it, “Why should I get married when it is such a bad business deal for men? Marriage has over a 50 percent chance of failure, and my wife can divorce me for no reason at all due to the no-fault divorce laws, and ruin me financially by taking at least half of my assets and income through the anti-male divorce courts. She can also destroy me emotionally by taking my children from me and not allowing me to ever see them again”.
Just think about it- right now , at this very moment, millions of men’s lives are being destroyed by women who have filed false domestic violence (DV) charges against them, or filed false rape accusations against them, or by their ex-wives who are destroy the man’s life financially through the feminist divorce courts and are destroying the man emotionally by not allowing their fathers to see their own children! Who in their right mind would want to get married in such a system?
Also, over 50 percent of American women are single, without a husband or boyfriend. I’m sure the statistics in other western countries are similar. So the vast amounts of single women is more evidence that a very large percent of men are refusing to get married.
Third, an increasing number of western men are going to traditional non-feminist countries in Asia and marrying traditional asian women. I think it is this third trend towards totally opting out of modern western marriage that is the biggest slap in the face to feminist western women. I’ve heard many bitter and angry western women criticizing asian women and the western men who marry them, but it’s clear that western women are simply jealous of asian women and cannot compete with them. In case you haven’t noticed by now, asian women tend to be a lot more feminine, petite, and humble than masculine arrogant western women.
And the majority of western men who are married to asian women testify that they are very happy, much happier than they ever were with western or American women.
Before we get into the substance of this essay, let me address one vital question. Most of you are probably asking “Who is Srila Prabhupada?” so let me give a brief biography.
Srila Prabhupada was born in Kolkata, India, in 1896. He met Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Goswami in 1922, who was the foremost scholar, philosopher, and devotee in India at that time. He requested Srila Prabhupada to preach India’s pure dharma in English to the western world. So in 1965, at the age of 69 years old, Srila Prabhupada traveled to America to preach this message. He arrived in New York City and began preaching about India’s Vedic dharma and culture, and within 10 years had established over a hundred temples all over the world, with tens of thousands of followers.
Srila Prabhupada’s most significant contribution, however, is his books. He published over 80 books, and translated the Srimad-Bhagavatam into English. In his Srimad-Bhagavatam translation, Srila Prabhupada addressed many issues about the modern society- politics, economics, culture, religion, spirituality, environmentalism, sociology, and so on. You can read his books online at the following links:
Bhagavad-Gita As It Is
Srila Prabhupada is a pure representative of India’s ancient dharma, philosophy, and culture. He is a bonafide spiritual master or Guru coming from a spiritual traditional dating back thousands of years.

Now that you are more aware of who Srila Prabhupada is, let us move on to the substance of this essay and begin to analyze Srila Prabhupada’s many statements and teachings about women.
On a morning walk that was recorded, one of Prabhupada’s disciples named Bhagavan asked him about modern women and feminism.
Bhagavan: …these girls who simply work in the city can do nothing. They can’t cook, they can’t clean, they can’t sew.
Prabhupada: All rubbish. These modern girls, they are all rubbish. Therefore they are simply used for sex satisfaction. Topless, bottomless…
(-Srila Prabhupada, Morning Walk — May 1, 1974, Bombay)
Here Srila Prabhupada is referring to modern women. He is stating a very obvious point- modern women do not want to cook, or clean, or do any practical housework, so therefore what real value do they have? The only real value they have is to be used for casual sexual encounters, and this is what many American men have directly stated- “American women don’t know how to cook, clean, or do anything practical. The only good thing about American women is how easy they are to have sex with”. We have practically seen that in America, in the marriages, the men end up doing most of the housework, cooking, and cleaning, while the women do practically nothing. Therefore, what real value do American women bring to a relationship? They do not bring any positive points, and in fact, only bring negative points to the table- their horrible attitudes, their misandry (hatred of men), their arrogance, their obesity, their instability, etc.
In America and Europe, the divorce rate is somewhere around 60 percent. And it is interesting, how 70 percent of divorces are initiated by women. This fact was confirmed by Srila Prabhupada, as we will analyze in the following quote.
Prabhupada: Generally, separation between husband and wife is due to womanly behavior; divorce takes place due to womanly weakness. The best course for a woman is to abide by the orders of her husband.
(-Srila Prabhupada, Srimad-Bhagavatam, Book 4, Chapter 4, verse 3)
Here, Srila Prabhupada states the fact that most marriages end because of the woman, not the man. Statistics prove this fact, as 70 percent of divorces in America are initiated by women, not by men. We also see that in most marriages, the men are not the ones that are constantly trying to create fights, arguing, abusing the spouse, etc. Feminism has brainwashed modern women with man-hating attitudes, which is why modern women are constantly abusing their husbands, both verbally and even physically. It’s rarely spoken about in the mainstream media, but domestic violence where women are the ones physically assaulting the man are quite common. And in contrast, modern women can call the police and have her husband arrested due to the zero tolerance abuse laws, even if the accusation is false. As many men have found out the hard way, there’s a massive epidemic of false domestic violence (DV) charges all over the world right now, where women falsely charge men. This has destroyed the lives of millions of men, many of them who were completely innocent. And you wonder why more and more men are simply refusing to get married to modern women, or choosing to marry a woman from Asia or other non-feminist areas of the world?
The following is a short excerpt between Srila Prabhupada and a female feminist news reporter in Chicago in 1975. Srila Prabhupada was so incredibly bold in presenting the truth, he was completely fearless. Remember, this was at the height of the feminism movement, and for Srila Prabhupada to speak this way would cause him to become very unpopular among many sections of American society. Regardless, he spoke the truth, without caring for public opinion. The truth is the truth, regardless of whether it is politically correct or not.
Woman reporter: And if women were subordinate to men, it would solve all of our problems?
Prabhupada: Yes. Man wants that woman should be subordinate, faithful to him. Then he is ready to take charge. The man’s mentality, woman’s mentality different. So if the woman agrees to remain faithful and subordinate to man, then the family life will be peaceful.
(Newspaper interview with Srila Prabhupada, July 9, 1975, Chicago)
If you are interested in reading a copy of the full interview, please visit here:
What an amazing reply. Srila Prabhupada answered her sarcastic question with a completely serious reply. Yes, it will solve all of women’s problems if they become subordinate or submissive to men. All of the problems of modern women have been caused by their unwillingness to become subordinate or submissive to men. The psychology of men is that they want their wives to be submissive to them. A man cannot tolerate a woman who tries to boss him around, control him, or abuse, insult, or berate him. Such a man will not be able to remain in the relationship for very long. And it is caused by the woman, not the man. It is the woman who is creating disturbances to the man, and therefore she is the one to blame.
Srila Prabhupada gives the solution to modern women’s problems- that they must become submissive or subordinate to men, and then men are ready to take care of them, marry them, provide for them, protect them, etc. Then marriage and family life is very stable and peaceful. Otherwise, if modern women continue to promote misandry (hatred of men), they will be left unprotected and unmarried, and very unhappy. Look at the single women who are over 40. Do they look very happy to you? No, they look very miserable. Men will continue to refuse to marry them, or else use them simple for casual sexual encounters and then dump them.
If modern women expect men to marry them or take care of them, then modern women had better realize that they have to change their man-hating attitudes and learn to become submissive to men. Otherwise, they are going to end up living very lonely lives, divorced and growing old alone with their 10 cats.
A man is always famous for his aggression toward a beautiful woman, and such aggression is sometimes considered rape. Although rape is not legally allowed, it is a fact that a woman likes a man who is very expert at rape.
(-Srila Prabhupada, Srimad-Bhagavatam, Book 4, Chapter 25, verse 41)
The reality of this statement should be readily apparent to most American men. American women do not like nice guys, and instead, they only like the bad boys, the thugs, the players, the criminals, and so on. Most American men have realized, if you are a nice guy, American women will not give you the time of day. If you are a nice guy, you are considered weak and stupid by American women. But if you treat American women badly, or treat them like crap, or abuse them, then they develop an attraction for you and love you for it. So it is indeed true, American women like men who are very aggressive, nevermind if they happen to be criminals, or bad boys. So why is it like this? Well, feminism has ruined modern women and basically turned the women into low class whores. Like attracts like. So, this is the real reason why western and American women only like low class men, because they themselves are low class. Therefore, it seems that the only way to get an American woman to like you or respect you is to treat her badly. So, what about American men who do not want to treat women badly? That leaves us with very little choice other than to go for foreign women.
In different surveys taken worldwide, it has been found that American men are considered as the world’s best husbands. In other words, American men are generally very high class people. So, how can high class and low class people get along? It is the advice of many men now to simply avoid American women and only date or marry foreign women.
An interesting point is that the same worldwide surveys also found that American women are considered as the world’s worst wives. And this seems to be true, otherwise why are there so many thousands of websites on the internet trying to arrange marriages between American and foreign women, whereas we find zero websites trying to arrange marriages between American women and foreign men?
Prabhupada: It is not that the woman do not like rape. They like sometimes. They willingly. That is the psychology. Outwardly they show some displeasure, but inwardly they do not. This is the psychology.
(-Srila Prabhupada, Morning Walk, May 11, 1975, Perth)
This also confirms the fact that modern women enjoy being pursued by the bad boys, and do not like the nice guys. Externally, or outwardly, modern women will show some displeasure, as if they are unhappy that they are being pursued by the bad boy thug-types, but inwardly they are quite happy and feeling sexually satisfied.
Also, as Srila Prabhupada confirms, this is the psychology of women, and therefore this tendency may also be found in modern women of any country, not just America. The difference is that women in traditional non-feminist countries are kept in line through strong social constraints, and therefore are not so shameless as to indulge in their carnal lusts the way that western or American women do. American women make absolutely no apologizes about choosing the bad boys over the nice guys, whereas in a traditional country, such women would become social outcasts and would be branded as “whores”. Once again, the main problem is that too much freedom has been given to women in the West. Most American and modern women are basically prostitutes, there is no real difference between the mentality of a paid prostitute and the mentality of most American and modern women.
As children are very prone to be misled, women are similarly very prone to degradation. Therefore, both children and women require protection by the elder members of the family.
(-Srila Prabhupada, Bhagavad-Gita As It Is, Chapter 1, verse 40)
Not only do the Vedas NOT put women on an equal platform with men, they put them on an equal platform with children. Ask yourself, what will happen if you give a child freedom? The child will become spoiled, and will cause chaos. Is this not exactly what has happened with modern and western women? Modern women have been given freedom and now they have turned into a bunch of immature, selfish brats who throw a temper tantrum whenever something doesn’t go their way.
The fact is that women are not equal with men. Women are indeed less intelligent than men, as the next quote will illustrate.
Prabhupada: Now, in the Manu-samhita it is clearly stated that a woman should not be given freedom. That does not mean that women are to be kept as slaves, but they are like children.
(-Srila Prabhupada, Bhagavad-Gita As It Is, Chapter 16, verse 7)
The Manu-samhita is an ancient Vedic scripture giving laws to govern society, and it says many times that women should never be given freedom. Women are like children, and they are easily manipulated. Actually, feminism has caused modern women to become incredibly degraded. Before feminism started in the 1960s, women were much more chaste, pure, and loyal. After feminism, modern women have become a bunch of whores that are incapable of being in a loyal relationship with a man. This is one reason why so many western men have given up on western women. Most American/western/modern women are also incapable of love, and will murder their own children without hesitation. Over 50 million babies have been murdered through abortion during the past 40 years in America. Therefore, American women are the most vicious, violent, and evil group of people on the planet.
Women as a class are no better than boys, and therefore they have no discriminatory power like that of a man.
(-Srila Prabhupada, Srimad-Bhagavatam, Book 1, Chapter 7, verse 42)
This is an obvious fact. Women do not possess the same powers of discrimination that men do. This is why we find very few, if any, women in positions in science, mechanics, and other fields which require real thinking. According to the Vedas, women are in the same category as children, and require protection. Modern society has given women freedom, and now modern women are free to be exploited by hundreds of men. How is this progress? Since feminism began, rape and violence against women has increased. How is this progress? More proof that women are not intelligent and do not possess discriminatory intelligence is in the very fact that they supported feminism in the first place, without realizing the long term consequences of it. 50 years after the feminist revolution, and now most western women have become disgusting human beings, and many men now want nothing to do with them and refuse to marry them. And the idiotic women still believe that this is progress. Perhaps once these women are growing old alone living with their 10 cats, they may at that time realize the huge mistake they have made by supporting feminism. Even then, they may not realize it, because women are not intelligent. Women must be controlled and because modern society has given women so much freedom, in fact more freedom than men, now women are suffering more than ever. Basically, modern women have been given too much freedom and now they are like a bunch of wild uncontrollable animals. This is what feminism has done to women.
As soon as a woman attains the age of puberty, she immediately becomes very much agitated by sexual desire. It is therefore the duty of the father to get his daughter married before she attains puberty. Otherwise she will be very much mortified by not having a husband. Anyone who satisfies her desire for sex at that age becomes a great object of satisfaction. It is a psychological fact that when a woman at the age of puberty meets a man and the man satisfies her sexually, she will love that man for the rest of her life, regardless who he is.
(-Srila Prabhupada, Srimad-Bhagavatam, Book 4, Chapter 25, verse 42)
This is why it is very important that women are virgins at the time of marriage. It is a psychological fact that the first man whom a woman has sex with, she will remain attached to that man for the rest of her life, whether directly or indirectly. We see that in a place like India, where most women are virgins until marriage, the divorce rate is low. Actually, India has the world’s lowest divorce rate, at 1 percent. Compare that to America and Europe, that has an average divorce rate of 60 percent. Notice a pattern? American and western women have had many sexual partners by the time they get married, and so they are unable to remain committed to one man, and this is one reason why the divorce rate is so high. The fact is, the more men that a woman has had sex with, the harder it will be for her to remain committed to just one man. Does anyone else also notice the similarities between what I am describing and that of a common prostitute? A prostitute will have had sex with hundreds of men, and no one expects her to be chaste and very few men would ever consider marrying a prostitute for this reason.
It is also interesting to note that back when India practiced early marriage, that is, women getting married before the age of 16, there was practically no cases of divorce at all. Divorce was completely unheard of. There is no word for “divorce” in the Sanskrit language. Compare that to America, where 13 and 14 year old girls are getting pregnant and having children. So, what is better? Young girls getting pregnant OUTSIDE of marriage, or young girls getting pregnant inside the safety of a marriage relationship?
Prabhupada: They should be stopped, this practice of prostitution. This is a very bad system in Europe and America. The boys and girls, they are educated-coeducation. From the very beginning of their life they become prostitutes. And they encourage.
(-Srila Prabhupada, Room Conversation, April 29, 1977)
Srila Prabhupada rightly points out the cause of so much sex outside of marriage in modern society- men and women are allowed to mix freely, especially in youth. The fact is, increased “freedom” in modern society has led to increased chaos. In fact, really, the only “freedom” that modern society has given people is the “freedom” to go to hell. In conservative societies where men and women are not allowed to mix together outside of marriage, guess what? Such societies have a very low rate of divorce and adultery. How surprising! So, if we want to eliminate divorce and adultery, we must also institute policies of separating men and women from associating with one another outside of marriage. Obviously the modern social system where a woman spends most of her day at a work associating with men other than her own husband is extremely flawed. We can never expect any good results from such a social system. Until the modern society either collapses or is destroyed, we cannot expect much real change in the way of gender relations. Feminism and modern society are interlinked and dependent on one another.
Woman reporter: Many women have children and have no support from husbands. They have no husband.
Prabhupada: Then they have to take support from others. You cannot deny that. The government is giving you support. But the government is embarrassed. If the husband supports the wife and children, the government is relieved of so much welfare contribution. So that is a problem.
(Newspaper interview with Srila Prabhupada, July 9, 1975, Chicago)
It is very interesting how modern women and western women claim to be “independent”, while a the same time being heavily dependent on the government to support their feminist policies and to dish out support payments to them, as well as dependent on the police in order to enforce their fascist feminist policies. Note that most police are men. Feminists claim they do not need men and are “independent” of men, and yet anything they have a problem in their own life, they call a MAN for help- the police, the fire department, plumbers, electricians, repairmen, etc. Note that most of the workers in these professions are MEN.
Also, many people would argue that the welfare system in the West, both in Europe and in North America, is one of the reasons why the economy is declining. Modern women and western women have become leeches, basically. They claim to be equal to men, but in reality they want to be lazy and leech off of men in order to finance their lives so that they do not have to work. Interesting- western women claim to be equal to men, and yet they generally are not willing to work at all, or even if they do work, they do not work as hard as men.
What is even more laughable is the misandric claims of western women and modern women that they are superior to men. Yes, you ladies are superior to us men, and at the same time are totally dependent on us like a bunch of little children. Can anyone say “immature spoiled little brat?” That is a fitting definition of the majority of western and modern women at present.
Anyway, one way to help fix the economy, as Srila Prabhupada points out, is that the welfare system should be eliminated and that women should agree to remain subordinate and dependent on their husband. Then the husband will provide financially for the woman, and she will no longer have to receive support payments from the government. This will greatly reduce the government’s expenditure and will naturally help fix the economy. Feminism has helped destroy the world economy, so by stopping the feminist policies that originally started the economic decline, we can naturally help put the economy back on track and get it to become healthy again. Also, it is not the business of the government to be involved in people’s personal lives or in their marriages. That is fascism, plain and simple.
Prabhupada: And the women are declaring, “independent.” They are begging door to door to a man, “Please give me shelter. Give me a child,” and they’re independent. One American woman, was…. She was speaking that “In India the woman are treated as slave. We don’t want.” So I told her that it is better to become slave of one person than to slave of become hundreds. (laughter) The woman must become a slave. So instead of becoming slaves of so many persons, it is better to remain satisfied, a slave of one person. And our Vedic civilization says, nari-rupam pati-vratam: “The woman is beautiful when she remains as a slave to the husband.” That is the beauty, not the personal beauty. How much she has learned to remain as a slave to the husband, that is Vedic civilization… And the beauty of woman is how much she is devoted and obedient to the husband. So it is very difficult.
(-Srila Prabhupada, Morning Walk, March 19, 1976, Mayapur, India)
Another tremendous profound and yet very logically simple by Srila Prabhupada. The logic that Srila Prabhupada is putting forth here can be understand by anyone, even a fool, It simply requires that the person is honest, and is not compromised with lies or with modern “political correctness”. Obviously, a lot of what Srila Prabhupada has said so far is extremely politically incorrect, but the fact is, the truth tends to be politically incorrect a majority of the time. Therefore, political correctness is not an accurate gauge for the truth.
Srila Prabhupada points out the logical reality- women are dependent on men, no matter how much they want to claim to be independent. Independence for a woman is simply not possible. As it is impossible for grass to become blue, or for frogs to rain from the sky, it is similarly impossible for a woman to become actually independent from the their dependence on men.
Srila Prabhupada mentions how one racist American woman claimed that “women in India are slaves”. How many times have us men heard this racist insults coming from western women about asian or eastern women? If you dare to suggest to a western woman that an asian or Indian woman is superior to them, the western woman will immediately become flustered, and start barking out pejoratives about asian/Indian women, calling them “slaves”, “whores”, “mail order brides”, etc. It is very interesting how western women would call an asian or Indian woman a “whore”, when western women are actually the biggest whores on the planet. Is it even possible anymore to find a western woman who is still a virgin by the time she gets married? And yet the vast majority of women in India and Asia are virgins at the time of marriage. So, it is hypocritical for western women to call asian/Indian women whores, when it is NOT TRUE, and the opposite in fact is true. The bottom line is, the real reason western women are so jealous and envious of asian/Indian women is because asian/Indian women still have so much class and feminity, whereas most western women have lost all class and have become masculine, which is a huge turn-off for men. Heterosexuality means that men are attracted to women, to that which is feminine, and unfortunately American and western women no longer possess the slightest trace of feminity. They do not even know what it means to “act like a lady” anymore. And they are also very angry that so many western men are rejecting them and going for asian/eastern women instead.
Srila Prabhupada puts forth the simple logic that it is better for a woman to remain dependent on one man, rather than many men. I believe we also have a word in English for a woman who is dependent on many men, and that word is called “whore”.
Srila Prabhupada also says that the measure of beauty of a woman is her chastity to her husband. We can apply this test- compare the physical beauty of most American or western women to the physical beauty of more traditional women such as women from Asia or India, and then you tell me- which is more beautiful? Nine times out of ten, it will be the asian or Indian woman who is more beautiful. The reason for this? The asian and Indian women have not yet been polluted by the poison of misandry (hatred of men) or feminism, and thus still have their natural feminine beauty and gracefulness. In plain English- traditional women are more beautiful than modern women.
The next quote is a summary of the duties of women according to the Vedas:
Prabhupada: We shall teach the girls two things. One thing is how to become chaste and faithful to their husband and how to cook nicely… These two qualifications required. She must learn how to prepare first-class foodstuff, and she must learn how to become chaste and faithful to the husband. Only these two qualification required. Then her life is successful. Educate the girls how to become faithful, chaste wife and how to cook nicely. Let them learn varieties of cooking. Is very difficult? And by fifteenth, sixteenth year they should be married. And if they are qualified, it will be not difficult to find out a nice husband. Here the boys, they do not want to marry because they are not very much inclined to marry unchaste wife. They know it, that “I shall marry a girl, she is unchaste.” What do you think?
(-Srila Prabhupada, Morning Walk, July 10, 1975, Chicago, USA)
In short, women’s roles are to be faithful, chaste, and submissive to the husband, and to cook. He also points out that they should be married by the time that puberty starts, otherwise there is the chance that they will have sex outside of marriage.
Srila Prabhupada also mentions that if they become chaste women, it will be very easy for them to find a good husband. He notes that many men do not want to get married in the West because the men know that the women in the West are mostly unchaste and will not remain loyal. So he provides the solution- train the women how to be chaste, submissive, and loyal, and then marry them to a good man. Then the woman’s life will be successful. So the solution to the problem of the shortage of good women in the West is to train up women to become chaste and faithful wives, and that was one of the objectives of the ISKCON organization that Srila Prabhupada established.
Female Reporter: What happens when women are not subordinate to men?
Prabhupada: Then there is disruption. There is disruption, social disruption. If the woman does not become subordinate to man, then there is social disruption. Therefore, in the western countries there are so many divorce cases because the woman does not agree to become subordinate to man. That is the cause.
(Television Interview with Srila Prabhupada, July 9, 1975, Chicago, USA)
Another perfectly clear and logical statement by Srila Prabhupada that should be readily apparent to any honest man. Look at the state of society in America or in Europe- it is in chaos. Millions of homes have been broken, millions of men’s lives have been destroyed financially through divorce courts and emotionally through the Child Protection Services by their vicious ex-wives who will not allow them to see their own children. Will anyone here dare to claim that the state of affairs in America and Europe is not in total “social disruption”? Feminism has created havoc in society. If we want to restore order to society, then the logical thing to do is to reverse the feminist policies which originally led to this state of havoc. I remember reading that 80 percent of the criminals in the US prison system came out of broken homes where divorce took place. Hitler was also raised by a single mother. So feminism not only ruins men’s lives, it ruins the lives of the children as well, turning them into either emasculated weaklings, or dangerous criminal/thug types. How can society prosper with such dysfunctional people?
In the modern day, the wife is never submissive, and therefore home life is broken even by slight incidents. Either the wife or the husband may take advantage of the divorce laws. According to the Vedic law, however, there is no such thing as divorce laws, and a woman must be trained to be submissive to the will of her husband. Westerners contend that this is a slave mentality for the wife, but factually it is not; it is the tactic by which a woman can conquer the heart of her husband, however irritable or cruel he may be.
(-Srila Prabhupada, Srimad-Bhagavatam, Book 9, Chapter 3, verse 10
As we have already documented, 70 percent of divorces in America are initiated by women. So, it is mostly women who are taking advantage of the no-fault divorce laws of the West. American and western women contend that if a woman is submissive, she is a “slave”. But the reality is, you cannot make a man love a woman by the woman being arrogant and trying to force her way onto the man. That will only turn the man off and make him disgusting with the woman. But if the woman is humble, meek, and shy, then the husband will naturally be pleased with her in all circumstances, and then he will gladly do his wife’s bidding.
So, western women have it completely backwards. They think they can control a man through force, but the only way to control a man is through humility and submissiveness. Then a man will be happy to protect and serve such a chaste wife. Of course, western women have been so spoiled by misandry (hatred of men) that it is very unlikely they will change and accept this. But that is their own misfortune, because in the end, they will be shunned by all men and will end up growing old alone living with their 10 cats.
We see millions of American and western men marrying asian women. Why is this? Because asian women are generally shy, humble, submissive, and much more feminine. This is naturally attractive to a man. A man naturally wants such qualities in a woman. That is why we are seeing so many millions of western men with asian wives now. And the western women say “Those men are just looking for slaves”. Wrong. They are just looking for a loyal and pleasant companion to be with. American and western women are not pleasant to be around- they are constantly belittling men, criticizing them, harassing them, and so on. What sane man would want anything to do with such disgusting women? If you ask me, I say boycott western women and only go for Asian, Indian, South American, or Russian/East European women. Western women as a whole have simply become too disgusting to deal with anymore.
Reporter: Are men regarded as superior to women?
Prabhupada: Yes, naturally. Naturally, woman requires protection by the man. In the childhood she is protected by the father, and youth time she is protected by the husband, and old age she is protected by elderly sons. That is natural.
Female Reporter: That goes against the thinking of a lot of people in America now. Do you know that?
Prabhupada: No… America, maybe, but this is the natural position. Women require protection.
Female Reporter: Who decides who’s natural? And what’s natural?
Prabhupada: Natural means just like in psychology it is said that woman, the highest brain substance of woman is thirty-six ounce, whereas the highest brain substance of man is sixty-four ounce. So there is difference by nature, of the brain.
(News Interview with Srila Prabhupada, March 5, 1975, New York)
This is what it means to not be compromised with lies; that you promote the truth even in the face of political correctness. The mid-1970s was the height of the feminism movement, and for Srila Prabhupada to have said these things to a news reporter was probably not going to create good publicity for his movement. Regardless, he spoke the truth, without caring for political correctness or what is the current popular cultural beliefs. It requires fearlessness to take such a firm position, that you will preach the truth even in the face of the most adverse conditions. In fact, Srila Prabhupada’s first name, Abhaya, literally means “fearless” in Sanskrit. We all should try our best to imitate his great example, and refuse to compromise with the lies and falsehoods of modern society.
A woman’s real business is to look after household affairs, keep everything neat and clean, and if there is sufficient milk supply available, she should always be engaged in churning butter, making yogurt, curd, so many nice varieties, simply from milk. The woman should be cleaning, sewing, like that.
(-Srila Prabhupada, letter to female disciple, February 16, 1972)
Srila Prabhupada is herein describing the duties for a woman- to stay at home, take care of her household, raise her children, clean the house, and cook. Modern women who work alongside men become unchaste, because they are associating with men other than their husband more than they are with their own husband. Women in the workplace and infidelity go hand in hand. Women must not be allowed to work, they must stay at home. That is the only way to have a peaceful society. Otherwise, if you give women the freedom to go out and work alongside equally with men, the women will become spoiled and become unchaste. It is not possible to have a peaceful or stable society if women work. Therefore, the ONLY place for women is in the house.
Prabhupada: Yes. That is psychological. They develop… Sex life, sex urge is there as soon as twelve years, thirteen years old, especially women. So therefore early marriage was sanctioned in India. Early marriage. Boy fifteen years, sixteen years, and girl twelve years. Not twelve years, ten years. I was married, my wife was eleven years. I was 22 years. She did not know what is sex, eleven years’ girl. Because Indian girls, they have no such opportunity of mixing with others. But after the first menstruation, the husband is ready. This is the system, Indian system.
Disciple: So they are not spoiled.
Prabhupada: No. And the psychology is the girl, after first menstruation, she enjoys sex life with a boy, she will never forget that boy. Her love for that boy is fixed up for good. This is woman’s psychology. And she is allowed to have many, oh, she will never be chaste woman. These are the psychology.
(-Srila Prabhupada, Room conversation, August 15, 1971, London)
Again, Srila Prabhupada repeats the theme that the first man a woman has sex with, she will remain attached to that particular man for the rest of her life. The more men that a woman has sex with, the harder it will be for her to remain chaste to only one man, because she will develop the mentality of a prostitute. And if a woman has sex with only one man during her youth, she is much more likely to remain committed and chaste to that one man only, rather than commit adultery. Srila Prabhupada also points out that the sex desire first arises in women around age 13, and we can see this practically in America and Europe. Girls as young as 12 are having sex and getting pregnant. So, why not just allow the girls to get married at that young age and then there will be no danger of them getting pregnant outside of marriage. Modern women will protest, “Oh, but then she will not be able to go to school or college and get an education so that she can get a job after she graduates from school”. Well, women are not meant to be educated, nor are they meant to get a job and work alongside men. Women are meant to cook, clean, stay at home and take care of the children. Modern society has ruined women by giving them education. The more education a woman receives, the more arrogant and independent she becomes. Therefore, education for women is a threat to the stability of society. If you want a peaceful or stable society, you must not educate women, and you must keep them in their homes, without mixing them with men (other than their own husband, of course).
So women should be trained up to be very faithful and chaste. Then the life will be very happy. That is the only education for woman.
(-Srila Prabhupada, Room Conversation, July 13, 1975)
This is self-apparent. How can you be happy if your wife is a nagging, angry, bitter person? But if you have a wife who is humble, faithful, chaste, and submissive, then naturally life will be happy. Actually, happiness in material life depends on the quality of women. In America, they have so much technology and amenities, but nobody is happy. Whereas in India, people do not have so much money or technology, but people are still generally happy, and it is because the women are still mostly pure. Happiness in life is relevant to the purity of the women.
Disciple: Once a woman was married, then that was finished. No connection with another man
Prabhupada: No, no. That one marriage is sufficient. She must remain very faithful to her husband, chaste. That is wanted. Not that “I do not like this husband. I’ll change.” That is not wanted.
Disciple: That’s Western mentality.
(-Srila Prabhupada, Room Conversation, September 9, 1976, Vrindavan)
Srila Prabhupada says that a woman should only be married once. She should remain satisfied and committed to one husband. He mentions how it is the disease of the western woman to not remain satisfied with one husband and to always want to change to a new man. This is the mentality of a prostitute. Therefore, it is not an exaggeration to say that most western women are prostitutes.
You see here that all young girls are carrying water, collecting. In the morning collecting water, cleansing the house, utensils, clothes, taking bath, then cooking, those girls. Their first business. Man’s business is to earn money, go to the market, the necessities. Woman’s business is take care of household affairs, children, and they have got engagement. As soon as they allow young girl to mix with young boys—finished.
(-Srila Prabhupada, Room Conversation, June 28, 1977, Vrindavan)
Srila Prabhupada is commenting on the lifestyle of the village women in India. He reiterates that their daily duties is to take care of their household, not to work outside the home. He says that if you allow young women to mix with young men, then the women’s life is spoiled, because she has then become polluted by men. In their young age, women are meant to be protected by their fathers, and once they reach the age of puberty, the young girls should be married and are then under the protection of their husbands. At no time in their life is a woman ever given freedom or independence.
Woman should be expert in cooking. That is their natural tendency. They should be educated how to cook nicely, how to please the husband, how to take care of the children. This is Vedic civilization. In the beginning a woman, childhood, she’s trained up by the mother. Then as soon as she is married, formerly, child-marriage, so she’s transferred to the care of mother-in-law. There she is trained up. Then she becomes very good housewife, takes care of household affairs, husband, children, and home becomes happy. What is this nonsense, divorce? There is no such thing in the Vedic civilization, divorce. You must accept whatever God has given you as husband or wife, you must. They had no thinking even, idea of divorce. One may not agree with the husband. That is natural. Sometimes we do not agree. But there is no question of divorce.
(-Srila Prabhupada, Room Conversation, July 7, 1976, Baltimore)
This is one of my favorite quotes from Srila Prabhupada about women. At no stage in life is a woman ever given independence. She is trained up by her own mother and mother in law how to become a good housewife. Before western culture was introduced in India, there was literally no cases of divorce. Even after western culture has began to infect India, still the divorce rate is the lowest rate in the world, at 1 percent. This is a testament to the great purity of India’s culture, that even though the traditional culture is currently in decline, still it is so strong that the majority of Indian women are very pure and faithful, even today.
Srila Prabhupada says that in a marriage, sometimes there may be arguments, sometimes the man and the wife may not agree. Even still, there is no question of divorce. In India, a man and wife may have some argument, even a severe argument, but there will not be a divorce. Compare that to America and Europe, where the women will divorce the man even if the man happens to be a very good person and very tolerant. The truth is, western women do not appreciate what good men they have. Western men are very agreeable and mild when it comes to women. I think it is safe to say that western men treat their women much nicer than asian or Indian men treat their women. And yet western women are such a bunch of spoiled little brats, that they do not appreciate what good men most western men are. If western women behaved the way they do in Asia or India, they would literally get the hell beaten out of them by the men. The problem in the West is that western men are too mild and meek with the women. They do not know how to control the women or how to maintain authority over them. At the same time, how can a western man maintain authority over a woman when a woman has been given so much power by the government that she can have a man arrested on her testimony only. So, damned if you do, damned if you don’t. Western women complain that western men don’t know how to be a real man. Well, if western women would stop emasculating the men, then perhaps this would stop. This is proof of how unintelligent and plain stupid western women are. They emasculate the men with all of their feminist garbage, and then they complain that western men are weak. Well, you feminists have no one to blame but yourselves. Shut your worthless mouths and become subordinate to men, and then all of your problems will be solved.
A chaste woman should not be greedy, but satisfied in all circumstances. She must be very expert in handling household affairs and should be fully conversant with religious principles. She should speak pleasingly and truthfully and should be very careful and always clean and pure.
(-Srila Prabhupada, Srimad Bhagavatam, Book 7, Chapter 11, verse 28)
Is this not the exact opposite of western women? American and western women are greedy (they will steal up to 95 percent of their ex-husband’s savings and income through the divorce courts, and are always seeking more material things like cars, big houses, boats, luxurious vacations, etc), are not satisfied in any condition (American women take more anti-depressant drugs than women in any other country, although the anti-depressant drug use rate is pretty similar in most western countries), are not expert at all in handling household affairs (Western women don’t like to cook, clean, or raise their children properly), most western women are committed atheists (it’s not a coincidence that feminists hate religion, as religion is masculine and patriarchal, and therefore the feminists declare religion to be their enemy. In other words, western women hate God), western women speak very viciously and harshly, they constantly lie and speak falsehoods, they are not careful (one American woman was recently arrested for pouring hot sauce down her son’s throat, another recent case is a western woman was baby-sitting some children but was found dead, along with the children, when she had a drug-overdose and collapsed onto the children, suffocating them), and hardly ever bathe or cleanse themselves.
In short, everything Srila Prabhupada has described as the ideal chaste woman is the exact opposite of what a western woman is. Therefore, western women are not chaste, and they should be avoided by any man who is looking for a chaste wife.
A man’s psychology and woman’s psychology are different. As constituted by bodily frame, a man always wants to be superior to his wife, and a woman, as bodily constituted, is naturally inferior to her husband. Thus the natural instinct is that the husband wants to post himself as superior to the wife, and this must be observed. Even if there is some wrong on the part of the husband, the wife must tolerate it, and thus there will be no misunderstanding between husband and wife.
(-Srila Prabhupada, Srimad Bhagavatam, Book 3, Chapter 23, verse 2)
Srila Prabhupada points out that it is the man’s natural psychology that he wants to be superior to women, and that it is the natural psychology of women that they want to be subordinate to men. Studies have shown that women’s happiness has actually decreased dramatically over the past 40 years, which is concurrent with the modern feminism movement. Feminism has not made modern women happy, rather it has done the opposite. This is the real reason why western women are such unhappy people- they are going against their own natural psychology, which is to be submissive to men. Therefore, if western women want to be happy, they must learn how to be submissive to men and become faithful again. Otherwise, they will remain unhappy and will end up alone, as no man wants to deal with women who are constantly miserable, bitter, and angry. Unless western women change, they have nothing to look forward to but living alone with their 10 cats.
Woman reporter: What about women who do not have children?
Prabhupada: Well, that is also another unnatural thing. Sometimes they use contraceptives. They kill children, abortion. That is also not very good. These are all sinful activities. These are sinful activities, to kill child in the womb.
Prabhupada: Yes, that is a fact. In the history there is no woman who is a big philosopher, a big mathematician, big scientist, big educationist. We don’t find. They were all men.
Disciple: Women’s liberation has become successful because man is now the servant of woman.
Prabhupada: It is not successful. That I was pointing out. It has caused the disaster because the whole women become dependent on the welfare gift of the government, and the government has to raise tax heavily for this purpose. The tax is given by the general public, but it is going for one individual person, and I have heard that government is embarrassed.
Prabhupada: By nature’s way, if the husband takes care of the wife and children, this problem is solved immediately. But the man takes advantage. He goes away after making the woman pregnant. And the woman is embarrassed and the government is embarrassed.
Disciple: And the child grows up to be a criminal.
(Television interview with Srila Prabhupada, July 9, 1975, Chicago)
The above quotes all come from the same television interview that featured the feminist female news reporter interviewing Srila Prabhupada in Chicago in 1975.
First, she tries to argue that women don’t have to have children and can thus be independent. Srila Prabhupada refutes this with the obvious- in order to maintain the woman’s artificial independence, she has to murder the unborn child in her womb through abortion. Over 50 million babies have been murdered in America over the past 40 years, and over 1 billion babies have been murdered through abortion worldwide over the past 40 years. Modern women have indeed shown their true vicious nature. There is nothing more vicious than murdering your own unborn child. Therefore, modern women are mostly a bunch of vicious sociopaths that feel nothing wrong even with killing their own unborn children.
One of Srila Prabhupada’s disciples then interjects that feminism has become successful because women have emasculated men and now women control the men. Srila Prabhupada doesn’t find this funny, and replies that it is not successful. He points out that actually feminism is a huge disaster because it has caused women to become totally dependent on the government in order to survive. He points out how the tax rate has increased dramatically because of this. So, feminism has literally ruined America and the world economy. And then the same idiotic feminists complain that the economy has collapsed. They have no one to blame but themselves. Feminism has destroyed America and it has destroyed the West, as well. Europe is in a state of collapse also.
It’s also interesting how Srila Prabhupada notes that men that are raised by single mothers have a much higher rate of becoming a criminal. I remember reading that up to 80 percent of the men in prison in America were raised by single mothers. Hitler was also raised by a single mother. Being a single parent is a very unnatural situation and screws up the children psychologically. This is just another way that feminism has destroyed modern society.
Artificially do not try to become equal with men. That is not allowed in the Vedic sastra (scripture). You have to understand that woman is never given to be independence. Independence means just like child has to be taken care, similarly, woman has to be taken care. You cannot get your child go in the street alone. There will be danger. Similarly, according to Vedic civilization, Manu-samhita, woman should be given protection. In the Western countries there is no such distinction between man and woman. But there is.
(-Srila Prabhupada, Bhagavad-Gita lecture, February 3, 1975, Hawaii)
Western women not only refuse to submit or be under the control of men, but they openly treat all men with hostility. That is what feminism has done, it has made women into very nasty and vicious people, who treat all men with scorn and rudeness, what to speak of their own husband. Western women are nothing but a bunch of spoiled little brats that were never disciplined, so they never learned any restraint or control. As a result, they have become a bunch of out of control spoiled little brats.
It would heed western women to accept Srila Prabhupada’s advice, that they should not try to become artificially equal with men. True equality is impossible. Can a man get pregnant and give birth to a child? If scientists can ever create a situation where a man can actually get pregnant and give birth to a child, then perhaps we may be approaching a day where “equality” is possible. Western women who strive to become artificially equal with men are simply ruining their own lives. The fact is, no man wants to marry or even date such an arrogant woman, and so western women will be left high and dry because no man will ever want anything to do with them, at least no real man with dignity. On the whole, western women can’t handle real men, because they are not real women. Western women do not even know what it means to be a “real woman”. Anyway, the more arrogant western women become in their striving for artificial equality, the more they are going to end up growing old alone living with their 10 cats.
Srila Prabhupada says that in the West, and now practically worldwide, with the exception of a few Islamic countries, men and women are treated as equals, as if there is no difference between them. But the reality is, THERE IS. Psychologically, men and women are completely different. And as for physiologically, men and women are different. Otherwise, why can’t a man get pregnant and have a child? Equality is not possible, and it is the greatest myth to ever contaminate the collective consciousness of the human race.
So, after reading this essay, I hope you will have a better understanding of how evil feminism is and how it has destroyed modern society. There will be many women and men who object to the strong language used in this essay, but the fact is, nothing I have said here is extreme. Rather, the only extreme thing is that millions of men’s lives have been destroyed by women who have filed false charges against them or destroyed them financially and emotionally in the divorce courts. There is a suicide epidemic amongst divorced fathers, and I have never heard any western woman or feminist express any sympathy whatsoever for them.
The fact is, it is not men who hate women. It is modern and western women who have been brainwashed by misandry, hatred of men, and thus they want to destroy men’s lives without any remorse or conscience. Feminism breeds merciless sociopaths, and that is my simple motivation here- I am trying to warn men about western women, so as to save the men from having their lives ruined by these women. My motivation is that of compassion and concern, I am trying to save men.
