Sannyasi's Conduct With Woman

ASK BVKS | November 7, 2011 |

English;

Question:

Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu's words regarding the sannyasa ashram are very cutting and pointed. They leave no room for doubt that such conduct may not be tolerated. But we live in an age where association with women cannot be avoided (even for sannyasis). How should a sannyasi handle women association especially in an organization like ISKCON? Has Prabhupada given any instructions on this matter?

This question has been answered by His Grace Gokulacandra Prabhu, a senior disciple of His Holiness Bhakti Vikasa Maharaj upon Maharaj's request.

If You Are Struggling in Practice of Brahmacarya

February 27, 2011 |

Question: I am practicing brahmacarya, but I sometimes find it a struggle. I find the night time most difficult, I can’t control the dreams, and I end up masturbating in the dream. I read that after 12 years of perfect brahmacarya, one develops super memory, clairvoyance etc., and atma-tattva, but does this also mean no wet dream for the entire 12 years = 365*12 more than 5000 dreams that have to be controlled!
