  84. Rajshekhar

    Jan 22nd, 2013

    Anyone who follows will be happily situated in life. HH Radhanath Swami says that we can get so many lessons from the nature and animals around us only if we have eyes to see.

  85. Anil Timbe

    Jan 28th, 2013

  88. Sunil

    Apr 16th, 2013

    Beautiful except the 5th point all the above 4 point stand true for grhastra also and not only for brahamcharis..to advance in spirutual life..

  89. pranjal

    May 6th, 2013

    These rules have to be followed by everyone who are serious for their spiritual life…Though married people cannot roam around and preach ,still they should be preaching in whatever place they are living in…when they will be properly situated in Krishna Consciousness, they can feel detachment to their house,relatives, money etc.

  90. Rajesh

    May 15th, 2013

    Insightful article. Though the 5 things to be taken care of as mentioned in the article are given here for the celibates; I think the first 4 equally apply to the married people also. The 5th one may not apply to them initially but in the later stages of thier lives the married men should also try to apply this ( at least the principle by being less atached to home)
