Question: How could it be that Advaita Ācārya can have three children who are smārta-brāhmaṇas? Advaita Ācārya being a great associate of Lord Caitanya. We have heard that even by remembering Śrī Advaita Ācārya we can get kṛṣṇa-prema. He was present with them 24 hours, how they did not get kṛṣṇa-prema?

Jayapatākā Swami: You see by doing Vaiṣṇava aparādha, it blocks your advancement. So the three children somehow, they were not respectful to Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu. Like that Śrīla Prabhupāda had different children. Some were very devotional and some were not. There is no guarantee that 100% of your children will be Kṛṣṇa conscious. Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura said that if he knew that 100% of his children would be Kṛṣṇa conscious, he would not be a sannyāsī. He could have 100 children. But anyway, those who are gṛhasthas should try to have Kṛṣṇa conscious children. If you have one Kṛṣṇa conscious child, your whole family, 14 generations are liberated.
