Jayapataka Swami: I don’t know which family members you are referring to and what kinds of austerities they are going through. Like if you are doing Nirjala Ekadasi, it is not that you make your family members do Nirjala! You can feed them and fast yourself. It is not that you are feeding some advanced devotee and that afterwards your wife cannot take the prasad.  I don’t know what austerity you are talking about. If you are saying that you are offering prasadam and they have to wait ten minutes to offer, that kind of austerity they have to do.
