Giriraj Swami : Srila Prabhupada said, “Do you ever feel like getting married?” I didn’t, so I said, “No. The only thing is that sometimes I see all the GBCs are married, so I think maybe I should marry.” He said, “You will never be GBC.” Then he said, “The demands of the body, like sex or any other demand, are like itching. If you try to scratch the itch, it will get worse. The best thing is to tolerate, and gradually the itching will subside. Whatever it may be, hunger also. It will subside. The best thing is to tolerate. You remain brahmachari for some time, and then I will give you sannyas.” I understood what Prabhupada wanted, and I decided without any doubt to remain a brahmachari.
