Devotee: is it true that because we are women we won’t make advancement as quickly as the brahmacharis?
Prabhupada: Yes. if you think of yourselves as women, how will you make an advancement? You must see yourself as spirit soul, eternal servant of Krishna. You are not a woman you are spirit, eternal servant of Krishna. you are not a woman, you are Vaishnavi. Your daughter may be named Vaishnavi Dasi.
