Guru maharaj: What help should I give? Normally, if anyone said this to Srila Prabhupada, I am not able to decide whether I should get married or remain a brahmachari. Then Srila Prabhupada would say then you get married Ha! To stay a brahmachari is hard it is called brihad vrata. Only if the mind is very steady and determined then only can one stay a brahmachari. But if one is wavering in mind to get married or to stay a brahmachari, then it is better to get married. When I was 19 years old, in the Montreal temple, the president’s wife told me told me that if I didn’t get married, I would not be able to go back to Vaikuntha! I went to Srila Prabhupada and told him that I was 19 years old only, I don’t worry about this and I asked Srila Prabhupada, and he said, when you are 25 years old, guru will see your situation and advise you, now your age is 23 plus, so wait till you are 25, and then I will see.
