1977 Conversations and Morning Walks

To remain in household life means a concession of sex.
Morning Walk -- January 8, 1977, Bombay:

Prabhupāda: And Urvaśī was explaining Purūravā about woman's nature...

Dr. Patel: That sanctity of fact, not to us.

Prabhupāda: Fortunately, our men cannot have sex cult even up to the point of death.

Dr. Patel: What I mean to say is that we have...

Prabhupāda: Our, if you say, "our," so if one is sticking to the sex cult up to the point of death, he's not "our."

Dr. Patel: Sex cult...

Prabhupāda: Sex cult, yes, gṛhamedhī. Who stick into family life, that is sex cult. It has no other meaning. It is a concession of sex. To remain in household life means a concession of sex.

Devotee: So now you are sixty-five...

Dr. Patel: No, that is not sex. I am prepared to oppose you for hear.

Prabhupāda: No, I don't hear you. I hear the śāstra.

Dr. Patel: No, but this is also śāstra. Please let me...

Prabhupāda: Yan maithunādi-gṛhamedhi-sukham (SB 7.9.45). No, maithuna, but maithuna products. You are attached to your sons and daughters. That is maithuna product.

Dr. Patel: That way we are attached to our bodies.

Prabhupāda: Yes, that is... Either maithuna... Just like Gandhi. The same thing, a bigger scale. Bigger scale. Maithuna product.

Dr. Patel: Our body is also maithuna product.

Prabhupāda: That's all right, but that is the first instruction: "Don't be attached to this body." So if we remain attached up to the point of death to the maithuna or maithuna product, then the same illusion. That is said.
