Jayapataka Swami:  That is a normal social etiquette. But spiritual life doesn’t depend on it. Like Devahuti was taught by her son. He was an avatar. So, in spiritual life it doesn’t apply. Just like it is said, that we can take gold from any place, even a dirty place. Say there is a kilo of gold lying in the garbage, will you say, no, no, I won’t touch it! So like that if someone maybe younger, well if they have spiritual knowledge, we can take that.
