| "It depends on one's choice. If you like, if you think that accepting sannyāsa āśrama you will be better to advance in Kṛṣṇa consciousness, then you accept it. Don't accept it is simply to make a show. But if you think that 'If I live within family members, oh, that will help me more in Kṛṣṇa consciousness', then live in that way. There is no obligation that you have to become a sannyāsī or you have to become a brahmacārī, then you can realize. No. Any platform, if your aim is Kṛṣṇa and Viṣṇu, that is your self-interest."
