Indian man (6): Śrīla Prabhupāda, since there is no distinction between "man" and "woman"—these are both designations—is it possible for a woman to become a brāhmaṇa?
Brahmānanda: Is it possible for a woman to become a brāhmaṇa?
Prabhupāda: He is... Woman is a brāhmaṇa's wife. Then she is automatically a brāhmaṇa.
Indian man (6): Suppose she doesn't want to get married for the rest of her life, just wants to serve the Lord?
Prabhupāda: So in his spiritual position everyone is a brāhmaṇa.
Brahmānanda: But you give brahminical initiation to unmarried women.
Prabhupāda: Yes. But on spiritual point she is brāhmaṇa. On the spiritual platform there is no such distinction.
Devotee (7): Oh, it's not possible for a woman to become a sannyāsī.
