HDG Bhaktivinoda Thakura has stated that the Vedas in many places prescribe that one gets married and that speaking and touching between a husband and wife is auspicious if the sadhana bhakti is increased and is not to be considered as stri-sanga. Stri-sanga applies to those who associate with people out of wedlock and are attached to many women or men. Srila Prabhupada spent a large part of his life as a grhastha. He went through vanaprastha and sannyasa at the end. ISKCON needs to establish the grhastha asrama.
