The Sacred Woman Vishnupriya

One of the greatest contributions of Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur was the establishment of a Vishnupriya Ashram or spiritual shelter for women. His concern over the lack of a real transcendental refuge for women in this age of Kali-yuga motivated him to provide this opportunity for women to pursue devotional life in an atmosphere of safety and support.

In his classic work Prema Pradipa, Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakur mentions several holy women leaders who were highly respected and the women’s ashramas which operated under their guidance.
