Entering the grihasta ashram is not just for sense enjoyment, but it is to have a son like Dhruva Maharaja, a son like Bhaktisiddanta Prabhupada, a son like our Prabhupada so that you can also be transferred to the kingdom of God. It is very important. You should train your children, especially if you have a son it is your duty to train your son to be a perfect brahmacari from the very childhood. Not that he should be entangled in this material world any longer. It is your duty, the parents’s duty to train the child how to be a pure devotee of Krishna right from the very childhood. Not that we have to wait until he grows up 14 years, 15 years, 20 years, 60 years, it should not be like that. It should be from very childhood that is the standard of our ashtram system – the grhasta ashram.
