Srila Narottam das Thakur says, “Fruitive activities and mental speculation are like pots of poison. Those who drink this poison thinking it to be nectar, fall back into the cycle of birth and death. Such persons eat abominable things and thus, their whole human form of life is a waste.”

“The duties of the man in grhastha life are to protect the wife from the illusion of this material world so that she can never forget Krsna and to support his family and the renounced order of life.
