Women Diksa Gurus?

By Kaunteya das.

The GBC stated that, “a mature, qualified, female devotee may accept role of an initiating spiritual master,” but not everyone agrees. The debate is intensifying. We need conclusive answers. This book explores the key issues:

  • Can women be diksa-gurus?
  • What are the arguments for and against?
  • What does the history of the Gaudiya Vaisnavism tell us?
  • What did our Founder-Acarya say?

“I must say, I was extremely impressed by your conviction to support Srila Prabhupada's vani and mood and, consequently, to identify so many contrived concoctions born of prejudice and fear. I read  the book in almost one sitting. . . . It's clear to me that you won the debate in support of the GBC  resolution. Congratulations!”
