Hare Krishna dear Devotees, please accept my humble obeisances! All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
In one lecture HH Radhanath Swami Maharaj nicely gave instructions to us - ladies by telling the life style of Lord Chaitania Mahaprabhu's wife Lakshmi Priya.
She used to wake up early in the morning, take bath, do Her spiritual duties. Then cooked for Her Deities, and served Her family...in this way whole day She was busy with housework. She used to do incenses, decorations for Altar, wash clothes, clean house, without the help of servants.
But it says that association with Devotees also is very important. Then when she associated with Devotees. I know that She is Mother Lakshmi Herself - naturally pure Devotee of Lord. But by Her lifestyle She also wanted to teach us.
So please, give some advices and explanations how can these days housewives can associate with Devotees and how often it is required?
Your servant, bhaktin maral
