Problems in Grhasta Communities

One of the problems that we often see in these grhastha communities is maintaining standards, because often they go down and sometimes, you know, even like grossly breaking the regulative principles. Another thing that sometimes really spoils the communities is people mix up with each other's wife. Then it becomes really bad. So that we shouldn't do.
