581) Whether I know what my obligatory duty is! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

——- So marriage is very compulsory in Vedic system because who is to take charge of the woman? They require protection. The father must take charge naturally, or the husband. And when she is old… Just like Caitanya Mahaprabhu was taking charge of His widow mother. So when He took sannyasa, so mother became very much upset: “Oh, that I have no husband, and this boy is going to take sannyasa.” Naturally. But that is a different case. For Krsna’s sake, we can forsake our obligatory duties. For Krsna’s sake. In the sastra it is said that one who has fully surrendered to Krsna, he has no more any material duty. Neither he has got any obligation that he must perform. But so long he is not fully surrendered to Krsna, he has to execute each and every duty as obligatory. —–
