Blowing on a Boil Compassion

ASK BVKS | February 27, 2011 |

English;

Question:

As far as, your very straight forward and strict (uncompromised) preaching mood is concerned, myself sometime feels a tinge of confusion as to what we should be necessary following – either we should go with a mood of not to compromise as far as philosophy, principles and instructions are concerned or in case of preaching neophytes and in mood of compassion if we are lenient at certain places, then that is alright?

Question:

I experience a strong desire to love and be loved; and lack of reciprocation causes tremendous pain. Is this a lustful perversion, when extended to a female devotee? How can one overcome such attachment, after a period of friendly engagement? Of course, these questions wouldn't have arisen in a society with segregation of sexes and early marriage. But the contemporary culture, especially in universities, insists on, intermingling, gender equality and freedom of choice; and its influence extends to devotees also. As a result, it becomes difficult to resist the arrows of Kamadeva.
