My grandson , Satvik ,s quick response to GRAHAST Ashram

SATVIK2015His grandmother, Sushma was trying to explain him about the four ashrams ; she explained to him the concept of four ashrams as how the life is divided into four parts of 25 years each; the Bramhamcharya, Grahast, Vanprasat and Sanyas  ashrams and the purpose of each ashram , the duties and responsibilities of an individual in each ashram etc. At the end, his response was:

” Amma, Grahast Ashram is the most important and the hardest one of all; An individual has to take care of his CHILDREN, his PARENTS and other elders and relatives and also for HIMSELF ( his own family); He can do that  properly and successfully if he has done well in the Brahmacharya ashram “.

True; success of one Ashram leads success to next . One could lead a successful life in sanyas only  if he has fulfilled his duties and responsibilities of the previous ashrams. Unfortunately, most of us are not doing well in Vanprast Ashram ( obligation for the society by giving it back its due share ) hence the sanyas has disappeared.
