THE NATURAL AMBITION OF A GIRL

By His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

Generally it is the ambition of a young girl to have a very handsome husband who is learned, clever, young and rich. According to the Vedic culture, one is rich if he possesses a large stock of food grain and a very large number of animals. Dhānyena dhanavān gavayā dhanavān: one is rich if he possesses food grain, cows and bulls. A girl also desires to have many children, especially sons (putra) who are very intelligent and long-lived. Now because society has deteriorated there is propaganda to have one or two children and kill the rest by contraceptive methods. But the natural ambition of a girl is to possess not only more than one child but at least half a dozen.

… One can easily become happy and obtain the material benefits of a good husband, wealth, food grain and a number of nice children by worshiping Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu. Although Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu accepted sannyāsa at an early age, it is not necessary for His devotees to follow Him by also taking sannyāsa. One can stay a householder, but one must be a devotee of Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu. Then one will be happy, with all the material opulences of a good home, good children, good mate, good wealth and everything he desires. Therefore the śāstras advise, yajnaih sankīrtana-prāyair yajanti hi su-medhasah  [SB 11.5.32]. Every householder, therefore, who is actually intelligent should introduce the sankīrtana movement home to home and live peacefully in this life and go back to Godhead in the next.

[The Bhaktivedanta Purport to Sri Chaitanya Charitamrta Adi Lila 14.55]
