How grhasthas should live in Krishna Consciousness

    Posted on July 30, 2015



Русский перевод

Concerning how to induce grhasthas to take part in Krishna Consciousness activities rather than in activities of Maya, it is very simple: they should attend the temple program rigidly. Morning arati, classes, sankirtana. We have given houses with the purpose to execute devotional service exactly like the Brahmacaris and sannyasis. Otherwise, why purchase houses near the temple? The whole idea is to live near the temple and take advantage of the temple program.The householding community in Los Angeles or any of our temples is not meant to be independent from the temple program.

(From Srila Prabhupada's letter to Jayatirtha - Bombay 1 May 1974)
