Many people don’t like women being spoken of as holding a lesser position. The scripture sees everyone equally,paṇḍitāḥ sama-darśinaḥ.  Then why does it say deprecating things about women?

Those living a life of devotion to Krishna should be perambulatory Bhagavad-gitas walking around the world and showing by example, “Here is what the message of Bhagavad-gita is.” That is your service to others who are wanting to become humble but struggling with it. Be an example! So that's the life of devotion -- serving Krishna nicely as much as we can, receiving mercy from Him, being very grateful for that mercy that we receive, keeping a humble heart, and trying to show by example how to live a life in devotion to Krishna in a humble way. "

Adapted from a lecture by His Holiness Romapada Swami entitled “Limbs of Surrender: Humility”, given in Chicago in March 2012.

An elevated Vaisnava thinks of oneself as less advanced, and, in all circumstances, he or she offers respect to others without any expectation of respect in return.
