Man to Renounce and Woman to Merry

Question:

Why is it that the cultural convention is for men to renounce and women to marry but the cultural code that it is best to renounce?

I would like to know which section of our society repels the renunciation of women in your opinion and why. Is it that the grhasta men want to keep their enjoyment guaranteed in convention?

I personally don't see how marrying can benefit anyone in this world but simply create more attachment to bags of bone and flesh. should we not be satisfying each other’s solitude in brahmacarya?

Question: I often encounter a problem. When I am offered demigod prasadam, it puts me in an awkward situation. Sometimes I take a little and sometimes I say that I am fasting. What is the principle?

Question:

I often encounter a problem. When I am offered demigod prasadam, it puts me in an awkward situation.

Sometimes I take a little and sometimes I say that I am fasting. What is the principle? Should we accept it or not? I heard in one Bhagavatam class by a devotee that demigods first offer food to the Lord and then honor it because they are also devotees of the Lord. Thus in one sense their prasadam is the Lord's maha-mahaprasadam. I am not sure of my understanding of that point in the lecture. Please enlighten me.

Do we only offer dandavats to our diksa-guru not the other gurus or sannyasis in temple hall in front of Srila Prabhupada or the deities?

Why Sayujya is Considered As One Kind of Mukti

July 28, 2012 |

Question: The goal of a Gaudiya Vaishnava is "Prema Bhakti", but out of the 5 types of mukti, for sayujya-mukti—we use the pramana “aruhya krccrena param padam tatha, patanty adho anadrta yusmad anghrayah” (Srimad Bhagavatam 10.2.32) to provide evidence that sayuja-mukti is not a permanent type of mukti.

Question:

The goal of a Gaudiya Vaishnava is "Prema Bhakti", but out of the 5 types of mukti, for sayujya-mukti—we  use the pramana “aruhya krccrena param padam tatha, patanty adho anadrta yusmad anghrayah” (Srimad Bhagavatam 10.2.32) to provide evidence that sayuja-mukti is not a permanent type of mukti. If this is the case, why is it considered one of the types of mukti? My understanding of “mukti” here is based on the definition from Bhagavat 2.10.6 – muktir hitva anyatha rupam svarupena vyavasthitih.
