A Response to the Brazilian CGB’s Recent Statement Murari Das

The CGB, ISKCON Brazil’s governing body, recently published a statement telling devotees not to share or discuss contents of the book Mothers and Masters (formerly; Women: Mothers or Masters?) on devotee social media sites. This is the statement:

Given that a series of misogynous publications have recently appeared on Facebook forums and pages, ISKCON Brazil would like to inform that the main source of such publications, the book of HH Bhakti Vikasa Swami called “Women: Master or Mothers?” (sic) does not reflect the official opinions of the institution, just as the GBC expressed through its Resolution 313 from 2016: ” The opinions expressed by Bhakti Vikasa Swami in his book “Women: Masters or Mothers” are solely those of the author in his private capacity and do not necessarily reflect the views and practices of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON), or its Founder-Acarya, His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.” read more
