Giriraja Swami: One time a devotee told Prabhupada a famous story about Mirabai. According to this story, Mirabai wanted to meet Jiva Gosvami, but Jiva Gosvami sent back a message, "I am a sannyasi and you are a woman, so I cannot meet you." Then, according to the story, Mirabai sent another message to Jiva Gosvami, saying, "I thought that Lord Krishna was the only male in Vrindavana and that all others were female." When Jiva Gosvami heard this reply, he supposedly agreed to meet her. When Prabhupada heard this story he said that this may not be true, because in our line the sannyasis do not refuse to meet women.
