1. Why the problems of the world are becoming very serious and grave

    According to Vedic culture, the women are instructed or trained up to become very chaste. Very chaste. Only one husband. Why? That is explained: strisu dustasu varna-sankarah bhavisyati. If women do not remain chaste, then unwanted population will come out. That is called varna-sankarah. Varna-sankarah means unwanted population. Actually all over the world this is happening, and therefore, the problems of the world becoming very serious and grave.
