Group Description

This list is for matajis who are following (and those that sincerely desire to) HDG Srila Prabhupada's strict teachings based on Vedic scripture on family life and the duties of women.



For a woman the first principle of religion is to be faithful to her husband.(SB 3.23.8)



The husband is a very intimate friend; therefore the wife must render service just like an intimate friend, and at the same time she must understand that the husband is superior in position, and thus she must offer him all respect. (SB 3.23.3)



The purpose of this list is to support and encourage one another in our efforts to become an ideal dharma-patni.

In this modern world

full of materialistic influences, including

feminism, it is vital that

devotee women share realizations how to fulfill our dharma in Krsna

consciousness and how to defend ourselves against

the anti-vedic models of

womanhood rampant in society.



Other topics for discussion could include household duties such as cooking,child-rearing, and natural healing.



SP- Women should be very 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 children. This is Vedic civilization. (Room conv. Baltimore July 7, 1976)
