I have been speaking w various devotees about the standard for grhasthas regarding initiation. I am sure you saw my post on the sannyasa conference. One devotee wrote back to me the following:

 

An afterthought: It strikes me that in the Gaudiya Math during Bhaktisiddhanta's time, the math was strictly a place for brahmacaris and sannyasis. My guess: The presupposition seems to have been that householders were/are more clearly separated from the renunciants because of their marital engagements, including especially sexuality, which I don't know that Bhaktisiddhanta specified must be for procreation only among householder disciples (would be interesting to know if there is any info on this).

 

Do you have any info on the above?

Question:

Once when Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Sarasvati Thakur coming out from temple with few grihast disciples and he saw none of them gave anything to beggars' sitting out side. So he instructed them to give something. And he told that, if you will not sacrifice in this way than you will loose your mentality of sacrifice. And then you will not sacrifice for Vaishanava or deity. BSST himself also distributing to raw material on auspicious day.

What shall we do? Shall we give charity to beggar?

And if we do so, then is there any karmic reaction in case beggars' misuse it?

Could you comment on this statement and explain how it is to be understood? Srila Prabhupada mentions material senses and then speaks about transcendental senses. Why does he not continue to say that devotees engage their material senses in the service of the Transcendence?
