Srutakirti: One day I received a letter from Kuladri and was happy to hear the current news from the western world. I informed Srila Prabhupada of the contents of the letter as none of the items therein were known to Srila Prabhupada.
One item was especially interesting. It involved the separation of men and women in the New York temple. Srila Prabhupada received a letter involving this matter at the same time as my letter arrived. When he heard that the women were only allowed in the temple at certain times because of agitated brahmacharis, he said the brahmacharis could go to the mountains because it wasn't possible to have such rules in our temples.
