Hare Krishna to all,
It is said by Srila Prabhupada that if any disciple breaks any of the four regulative principles then his spiritual master along with him has to suffer for his sinful activity.
It is also said that if any of the four regulative principle is broken after initiation that leads to multiple times suffering to that person because he promised his spiritual master to follow all 4 regulative principles throughout his life.
Ques. :-> Does it means that before initiation anybody must be sure that he shall follow all 4 regulative principles throughout his life otherwise IF ANY BODY HAS EVEN A LITTLE DOUBT IN IT THEN HE MUST NOT TAKE INITIATION?
Ques:-> The greatest enemy or the most powerful instrument of Maya is Sex. It is impossible to control it in few years. No body can be sure that he has conquered sexual desires. Within Marriage, Sex other than begetting children is also considered as an act of illicit sex. I don't say that it is impossible to control sexual desires in marriage but I think that this is the most tough Rule which requires more time because it is the root cause of material bondage and the most powerful enemy to spiritual life.
My question are
(i) Does it mean that anybody who is trying to control sexual desires but is not sure of controlling sex within marriage must take initiation only after marriage to first ensure this.
(ii) Does it mean that anybody who is trying to control sexual desires but is not sure of controlling sex within marriage must not marry a devotee boy/girl so that he would not break boy's/girl's regulative principle to whom he marries.
