In Calcutta in 1972 Śrīla Prabhupāda was on a morning walk with many brahmacārīs. Some of the brahmacārīs complained that the women also lived in the Calcutta temple on Albert Road. One brahmachārī said, “Śrīla Prabhupāda, sometimes women do not cover their heads with sari.” and “Why can’t women find a place other than brahmacārīs? Their presence does not contribute to our brahmacārya lives.”

Śrīla Prabhupāda was quiet the whole walk. Sometimes he would stop walking and then start again, but he did not respond to the brahmacārīs. Then we went up the stairs of the Albert Road, someone opened the door for us, and there were Yamunā, Pālikā, the wife of Śyāmasundara Mālatī, kauśalya, Mādrī and other women who stayed to wash the floor, cook for the Deities, bathe the Deities , dressing the Deities, preparing vyāsāsana for Śrīla Prabhupāda and pillows for the guests. The women immediately bowed down and said, “Jay Śrīla Prabhupāda!”
Śrīla Prabhupāda addressed all of us and said, “But those connect to those women, they will return to Godhead!”
