This is How Love Works
MASCULINE - FEMINININE PRINCIPLE
What are some of the differences
between the male and female?
NEEDS CAN BE FULFILLED IF YOU ARE IN THE MODE OF GOODNESS (means, being in the present)
Needs a satisfied, selfless lady
Constantly admired, hero
Needs a giving, sense-controlled man
Affection, attention, protection
Listening and articulation
Logical or emotional
Logical & emotional
They Make A Team
A confident wife + a considerate husband.
Women appreciate power from a man. . .
. . . power applied gently
Whatever the masculine principle does, the feminine principle follows
If the masculine stops trying in the relationship, the feminine will
If the masculine can't be bothered, the feminine won't be bothered
If the masculine won't tolerate her, the feminine won't tolerate him
If the masculine won't respect her, there's no way she will respect him
If the masculine acts responsibility, the feminine will
If the masculine has a service mentality, the feminine will
You command respect
not demand respect
between living entities
work on this masculine feminine principle.
'The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it.'

Memory of Daily Events
Sensual - eyes
Sense of Direction
Sensual - All senses
Canakya Pandit: Even more satisfying for a man than taking over and ruling an entire kingdom, is the woman telling him he’s the best man in the world.
What are the consequences
of expecting a person to change?
Visala Prabhu recalls: “I brought my wife to Bombay with me and I said to Srila Prabhupada in front of her, ‘Srila Prabhupada, I understand that the husband is representative of the spiritual master . . . should she do everything I ask?’ And Srila Prabhupada said, ‘And you should be so arrogant?’”
Knowledge is power
Power should be controlled and applied according to the nature of the feminine
“One should become a perfect gentleman and learn to give proper respect to others.” (Sri Isopanisad, Mantra 10 ppt)
“Simply get married without considering what is the serious nature of married life, then if there is little disturbance, or if I do not like my wife or my husband, let me go away, everyone else is doing like that. So in this way the whole thing is becoming a farce.” (Letter to Madhukara, 4 January 1973)
When the wife is accepted as a sense gratificatory agency, personal beauty is the main consideration, and as soon as there is a break in personal sense gratification, there is disruption or divorce. But when husband and wife aim at spiritual advancement by mutual cooperation, there is no consideration of personal beauty or the disruption of so-called love. SB 3.14.19 ppt
Here two words are used very significantly-yathä-silam and yathä-ruci. Man and woman should not be united simply on the consideration of sex life. There are many other considerations, especially character and taste. If the taste and character differ between the man and woman, their combination will be unhappy. At the present moment, because boys and girls are not married according to quality and character, most marriages are unhappy, and there is divorce.
The phrase "like disposition" is very significant. Formerly, boys and girls of similar dispositions were married; the similar natures of the boy and girl were united in order to make them happy.
