Ms. Nixon: How about in spiritual life—can women also succeed in Krsna consciousness?
Srila Prabhupäda: We make no distinction on the basis of sex. We give Krsna consciousness to both men and women equally. We welcome women, men, the poor, the rich—everyone. Krsna says in the Bhagavad-gitä (5.18):
brähmane ga vi hastini
suni caiva svapäke ca
“The humble sage, by virtue of true knowledge, sees with equal vision a learned and gentle brähmana, a cow, an elephant, a dog, and a dog-eater.” SSR 1 LEARNING THE SCIENCE OF THE SELF.
