Never Trust a Diplomat or a Woman


Topic starter

Hare Krsna, i have just started reading the Krsna Book. 

I have nearly got to the end of the first chapter and am stuck at the point where Srila Prabhupada has quoted Chanakya Pandita ‘never put your trust in a diplomat or a woman’.

I searched and searched online for the meaning and purpose of this quote -  Please are you able to shed some light on this?

What does this mean, in what context is this said?

Thank you 🙏🏼

Hare Krishna, Jay. V. Prabhu. Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada. Srila Prabhupada elaborates on this point in the Bhagavad-Gita text 1.40. Here is the link.   Haribol. Your servant, Bhakta David.
