Grhastha should not be dependent or independent

    Posted on December 12, 2015

Grhastha should not be dependent on Society. At the same time, he should not be independent of the Society [ISKCON]. (laughs) This is the position. Because Society cannot take charge of a family. There will be so many number of families. How it is possible? At the same time, if they remain independently of the Society, without touch, then the karmis' poison will infect.

...They should not live completely independent. That will be future danger.

...Must be in touch with devotional service as in the temple. If live nearby temple, it is easier, or in the temple. But aloof, that is dangerous.

(Srila Prabhupada - July 17, 1977, Vrndavana)
