Srila Prabhupada on Lesbianism

Mother Govinda dasi’s recollection of an encounter with Srila Prabhupada concerning a lady disciple struggling with her homosexuality is informative. The link is here: https://harekrishnarevolution.wordpress.com/2013/12/28/srila-prabhupada-comments-on-homosexuality/

It is interesting to note that Srila Prabhupada says that all sexual attraction binds us to the material world, but that only sex between a man and a woman can be sanctified, not homosexual sex.

One thought on “Srila Prabhupada on Lesbianism

  1. He gives no basis for that, though. He did not understand that women can be attracted to women, and claimed that there were no lesbians in India- though that is as unlikely as that there are no Muslims in India. So, from a position of complete ignorance, he says gay love cannot be sanctified. What possible value could such an opinion have?
