Gender discrimination continues in the United StatesHanuman das
Today, we saw a disturbing article on facebook, where Indian guru and sannyasi performed initiations in San Diego without bringing his wife Kunti dasi who is faithfully serving him for many years. And the only reason he didn’t bring his wife to initiation ceremony, is too keep his manly image as a sannyasi and big renunciant. I must say this is not ok.
This is the facebook post announcing inititation ceremony.
Here is the historical moment where American ISKCON confirmed that it is ok for a sannyasi to leave his wife at home while he is giving initiations:

Would you like to be a disciple of a guru who leaves his wife a home while performing initiations? I don’t think so. This is not proper. At least not in America.
