Vagina: Gateway to Death, Coming or Going

Comment Send this story to a friend Printer friendly page

Dear Hansadutta,
Please accept my humble obeisances, All Glories to Srila Prabhupada.

I was going to send you this very depressing email about the troubles of being a young man in this crazy world. But when I was done, I felt lifted above my bout of depression, and decided to just write to you to thank you for the messages you sent. And to say that I can't wait to get out of here (U.C. Berkeley) and go up to the country where there aren't all these women chasing after me. (I swear, as soon as I graduated, I have a flock of women just waiting to tie me down, and suck the lifeblood out of me. I guess a college degree means security; they don't know what they are getting into, but then again, I am not even going to let them find out).

I tried to call you, but your line was busy, then it made the fax noise, then it was busy again. I will try later.

Hare Krishna.
Your servant,
Nakula dasa

Dear Nakula,
All Glories to Srila Prabhupada.

Country or city, in the sky, on the water, on land, in the country town, or the jungle, wherever we go, women are there. The only safe haven is chanting Hare Krishna and reading Srila Prabhupada's books. There is one gateway through which we all must pass to enter this material world, and that gateway is the vagina. When we are in this world, we unfortunately seek to re-enter this gateway again and again through the process of sexual intercourse. The result is that at the time of death, our fascination with this vaginal gateway forces us to be placed again within a particle of male semen and injected into the womb of another mother, and develop another body just suitable for receiving another term of material karmic reactions. This is described in the Srimad Bhagavatam as: karmana deiva nitrena. According to his work, (karma) and under the supervision of higher authorities (Daiva), the living entity is put into the womb of a mother in a particle of male semen, and thus he again develops a body just suitable for his karmic reactions.

The whole aim of Vedic education Vedic knowledge, or Krishna Consciousness as we have received it from Srila Prabhupada, is to avoid this repetition of births and deaths. Anything which does not further this goal is a useless waste of time. Certainly casual association with the opposite sex, which usually culminates in illicit sex, is the most dangerous kind of association one can keep. Especially for young men, this is more dangerous than drinking poison.

In the beginning woman appears very attractive and pleasing, flashing smiles and sweet talks of love, but in the end, it all becomes detestable, because the womanly beauty is nothing but flesh, fat, bone, stool, urine and obnoxious gases and odors. The woman is only beautiful as long as the soul is within the obnoxious bag of skin and bones, but the same beautiful woman is at once repulsive when the soul is out of that body. It is then revealed for what it is: a dead body, in every way hideous and disgusting. Under the fever of lust only we become blinded to the actual fact, and become mad for embracing these female bodies, even sleeping with them in the same bed after sexual intercourse. The whole phenomenon, when studied from a sober perspective is quite morbid.

But we are generally not sober; mostly we are feverish with lusty desires, so we cannot think clearly. Brahmachary life (celibate student life) was designed to keep a clear, thinking head on a young man's shoulders. Modern University life is designed to keep a man thinking with the head of his penis perpetually, thus he becomes and remains entrapped, and everything he does binds him more and more into the terrifying cycle of entering and exiting the vagina, or the cycle of birth and death. The conclusion is: the vagina is the gateway to death, either coming or going, it doesn't matter.

I'll see you all soon.

Licking of the Vagina Civilization

[Conversations with Srila Prabhupada, Room Conversation, February 19, 1977, Mayapura]

Prabhupada: No, we... "It is voluntary. In our society we find so many brahmacaris, so many grhasthas. And if you cannot stop this itching sensation, all right, marry one girl and live peacefully like a gentle… What is this nonsense, every three weeks divorce? We are not so rascal. If we accept one girl as my wife, I take full responsibility. Because I require a girl or woman, so this woman, that one… We are not so rascal that at home I have got woman, I am searching after another woman, another naked woman. We are not so madman. The sex pleasure is there at home, and I am seeking after sex pleasure in here, here, in the club, in the… What is that? Is that vagina is different? You are so fool. You require vagina; take one vagina. Be satisfied. And lick it. Why you are going here and there, here and there, here and there? Even old man is going to the nightclub to lick another vagina. Is that civilization? "You are proud of your civilization." Tell them like that. "Licking of the vagina, different, obnoxious smell. You are less than the dog. The dog likes to smell the vagina. You are like that. What is business of going another vagina? You require vagina. Take one and be satisfied. That is intelligence. First of all there is no need of vagina. But if you want, take one and be satisfied. Why you are searching after dog vagina, this vagina, that vagina, that vagina? Is that civilization?" Expose them like that. "Your brain is filled with so much stool, so we are washing it. What is the wrong there?"
Adi-kesava: Actually they all need brainwashing.
Prabhupada: Yes, "Every one of you require, because your brain is filled up with stool. You have no brain. Brain is covered with stool." What they will answer?
Satsvarupa: That "If I want to have a stool brain, it may be lamentable, but don't force me to be washed."
Prabhupada: It is not force. It is no—
Satsvarupa: "Let me remain in stool."
Prabhupada: "We are preaching. It does not mean that we are forcing. We are saying that your brain is in stool. Wash it like this. If one agrees, he does it. Not that in our movement all world has joined. One who is intelligent, he has agreed, 'Yes.' I am not forcing. If I would have possessed that forcive power, what right you have got to bring me in the court? You are forcing me to stop this. You are forcing. Nobody can force, but you are forcing." You should take this argument and expose them at least in the court, licking of the vagina civilization, like dog. Yes animals do that.
Adi-kesava: I think the more strongly we preach in this way, that we don't try to give in and compromise—
Prabhupada: No, no, no.
Adi-kesava: The more that everyone will hear about this issue—
Prabhupada: We must expose them, that's all. This is our business. This is a good opportunity in the court, so that it will be published. People will know what is our philosophy. Licking of vagina civilization, this. Publish.
Adi-kesava: All right.
Prabhupada: What they have got anymore, this Western civilization?
Adi-kesava: They say that they are all actually in despair. They don't see any hope in the future.
Prabhupada: This is their position.
Hari-sauri: Their only hope in the future is that we'll eat trash, process trash and—
Prabhupada: What is that?
Indian: (Bengali) (break)
Prabhupada: All, let us sit down here.
Hari-sauri: In the room?
Prabhupada: Yes, Gaura-Nitai. Is that argument all right, licking the vagina civilization?
Prthu-putra: Great.
Adi-kesava(?): Very bold.
Hari-sauri: No one's ever talked to them like that.
Prabhupada: But this is a fact. The old man, seventy-five years old, he's going to lick up another vagina in the club. This is your Western civilization.
Adi-kesava: Sometimes in New York… You know we live right next to Broadway. The temple is right next to Broadway. Sometimes in New York we see old, old men—
Prabhupada: And in France it is very… In France you have got.
Prthu-putra: In France, yes. All the prostitution going on around the temple.
Adi-kesava: You see even old, old men going to these clubs.
Hari-sauri: If you can still have sex when you're seventy-five, then you're a great man. Glorified.
Prabhupada: Just see. This is their civilization. In Paris there are so many clubs. The old men, they first of all pay fifty dollars to enter into the club. Then he selects which vagina he will lick up. Then another payment. I know that. (aside:) No, he can be asked to sit down there.
Hari-sauri: To sit in the room.
Prabhupada: Yes. Actually this is the fact. But they are fools. They still like to lick up new vagina. Exactly dogs. We are restricting that. "Give up this business, licking of vagina," and they are seeking up to the point of death another vagina, another vagina, another… Which is better? If we say that "Give up this nonsense business," is that brainwash? And if it is brainwash, it is for good. What is this civilization, who is never satisfied? The same business is going on up to the point of death. Our civilization is: "All right, you are attached to vagina-licking. Do it up to fifty years. Then give it up." This is our civilization. "You are so much accustomed to the vagina-licking business--up to fifty years, so long you are young. Then give it… Don't do it anymore." This is our civilization. And that also, after twenty-five years. For twenty-five years teach him, "It is no good business. Brahmacari. Remain alone. You have got so much botheration." If he's still unable: "All right, take one wife. Be satisfied. Lick up one. And then, at the age of fifty years, give up." This is our... Is that wrong?
Satsvarupa: It's good.
Hari-sauri: It's great.
Prabhupada: Because unless you give up this business of vagina-licking, you'll have to be entangled in this body. Either as a dog or as a hog, as a human being or as a demigod, as a tree, as an insect, it will go on. In this way plead. Let the people understand what we are preaching. Advance this philosophy, widely discussed. Then our success.
Hari-sauri: There's no question this will be widely discussed.
Prabhupada: And… (someone enters) (Bengali) (break) Smelling the aroma, such a nonsense.
Hari-sauri: As you say, just like dogs.
Prabhupada: Hm?
Hari-sauri: Just like the dogs.
Prabhupada: Dogs and all animals, smelling vagina. They think, "Here is real pleasure."
Hari-sauri: There's no need to move around, Srila Prabhupada… (break)
Prabhupada: They're going for vagina and paying heavy toll: fifty dollars for entering the club, then two hundred dollars for drinking. You know this?
Hari-sauri: Yes.
Prabhupada: This is their civilization, vagina civilization. In Florida they go, Miami, to spend money weekly, five hundred, five thousand dollars for naked dance. You know that?
Hari-sauri: Yes. So many places. Las Vegas. Every big city has…
Prabhupada: And Brahmananda told me sometimes they see on the stage a fatty woman having sex with an ass. This is exhibited in Mexico. And they enjoy it.
Hari-sauri: In Europe they have sex fairs.
Prabhupada: Sex fair? What is that?
Hari-sauri: You can go, and they have sideshows, men and women having sex on the stage at regular intervals, and they exhibit all kinds of contraptions that you can use to pervert your sex life even more.
Prabhupada: What they will understand about this Krsna consciousness?
Hari-sauri: There's not very much hope for them.
Prabhupada: Help is for everyone, but if they remain stubborn to their own way of life, then it is not possible. They have to wash the brain. Otherwise it is possible.
Hari-sauri: You explain in the Bhagavatam that everything actually is just an extension of the sex desire.
Prabhupada: That's it.
Hari-sauri: Their whole big cities and so much industry—
Prabhupada: Yes.
Hari-sauri: —and work is just simply—
Prabhupada: For the central point—vagina. Yan maithunadi-grhamedhi-sukham hi tuccham. The other day… Maithunyam agaram ajnah vindati tapan.
Hari-sauri: Rsabhadeva's instructions. (end)

[Conversations with Srila Prabhupada,  Room Conversation, February 25, 1977, Mayapura]

Prabhupada: Everywhere. This male and female, nature's gift that is. Therefore tasyaiva hetoh. These things you'll get.
Tamala Krsna: Yes. So why use the…?
Prabhupada: Why you are after these things?
Tamala Krsna: Hm. Wasting human life.
Prabhupada: You'll get woman. So be satisfied, the nature's gift of woman, nature's gift of your position, and utilize your life for Krsna consciousness. Why more and more, more, and naked and this way and that way? The other day what did I say? Vagina-licking civilization.
Bali-mardana: Hm?
Tamala Krsna: Vagina-licking civilization.
Prabhupada: They're spending so much money for vagina-looking.
Tamala Krsna: Oh, that's their whole consciousness.
Prabhupada: Yes. The money is earned with so hard labor and it is spent for vagina-looking.
Tamala Krsna: Polished dog society.
Prabhupada: Yes. Yes, dog also smells the vagina, and they also do the same thing. Therefore nature has arranged that dog are smelling vagina on the street. One vagina and three dozen dogs surrounded.
Tamala Krsna: Yes. Vrndavana you see that.
Prabhupada: Yes.
Tamala Krsna: Now that's going on in America. They are spending money just for that.
Prabhupada: Yes.
Tamala Krsna: Three dozen men look at one woman, same business.
Bali-mardana: And they make big literatures, magazines, everywhere, all over the streets. They put them in the street…
Tamala Krsna: The big thing now in America, the most popular shop, is called "Adult Books." "Adult Bookshop."
Hari-sauri: "Adult cinema," "adult this," "adult that."
Prabhupada: Topless, bottomless. Yan maithunadi-grhamedhi-sukham hi tuccham kanduyanena karayor iva duhkha-duhkham, trpyanti neha krpana bahu-duhkha-bhajah. Bahu-duhkha-bhajah. Krpana. The rascals. Krpana means non-brahmana, without any spiritual knowledge. They are never satisfied, the vagina business. Trpyanti neha krpana-- although it is followed by so much miserable condition--bahu-duhkha-bhajah kandutivan manasijam visaheta dhirah. One who is dhira, sober, he tolerates little itching sensation: "What this nonsense?" And if you practice toleration, there will be no more. Finished. You become liberated. Therefore, from the very beginning of life, childhood, this teach him, that "Don't be a vagina-smelling animal." Brahmacari. Brahmacari guru-grhe vasan dantah. To learn how to control the senses, that is brahmacari. Where is that civilization? So establish. Give them food. Give them shelter. Give them knowledge. That is para-upakara, doing welfare to others. But don't be entangled in vagina civilization. Yan maithunadi-grhamedhi-sukham. It is most abominable civilization, tuccham, condemned civilization.
