Once an elderly Vaishnavi, said how some brahmacaris only want to speak hari-katha to young girls.
Apparently, when an old woman requests them to speak hari-katha, they (the brahmacaris) always say they are busy.
Pondering about that fact, it only goes to show how opposites attract, especially when we are in our blossoming youth.
I know of someone who wanted some ladies to get to gather and speak hari-katha or do some seva. Most of the ladies seem to be "extremely" busy. One even said it may be a waste of time for her. But when the same concept was introduced by a male, they seem to be interested.
Of course this cannot be true to every single person. There are some successful ladies sanga group. Unfortunately, such situation is not pretty common.
Opposites do attract. And this can lead to dangerous liaisons, especially for aspiring spiritual practitioners.
