17 Sep Q&A on ‘Pratyahara’
Check this out on Chirbit Q. How to be unaffected by the senses in this householder state? Dr. J: One easy way would be to buy ear plugs. It would save you from unnecessary talks. Smt. H: Being a householder does not mean we let go of all discipline. We must do things only when they are necessary. I always say in the pregnancy camp, when parents have a small child, the child will wake up many times at night. Now the child will need its mother as the mother will be feeding it. So the father need not wake up every time. If both wake up, both their sleep will be disturbed and they will start fighting. So the father needs to use ear plugs and sleep. Now householders should have clarity on how much each should be involved. Q. My husband enjoys food, especially one item. He wants to eat that all the time. I am saturated with eating this with him for so many years. Please advise on how to deal with this.
