Female Diksha Gurus?

“In the contemporary environment, due to the neophyte mentality, there isn’t a proper respect for siksa-guru. Because to have respect for siksa-guru, means, you have to have respect for the principle of authority and that knowledge is the highest. (..) If siksa-guru is respected, that means all senior Vaishnavas, and especially those who are more close, who are giving instructions would be on that same platform like the diksa-guru. Right? Then you wouldn’t have a need for trying to bring out this [female diksha guru] thing based on social values. It’s not based on spiritual values. No one should fool themselves on this. It’s based purely on social values, modern social values, that the women should be diksa-gurus.”
