YES, A MARRIED MAN OR WOMAN CAN BECOME A PERFECT YOGEE....!
Shiv Puraann, the sacred Indian spiritual text says this through the words of the Lord Shankara. When Lord Brhmaa visited Lord Shankara and requested him to get married then the Lord Shankara put many conditions for the would-be bride. One of the conditions was that the WOULD-BE BRIDE MUST BE A LADY WHO SHOULD BECOME A YOGEENEE WHEN LORD SHANKARA WOULD BE BUSY DOING THE YOGA. ALSO, SUCH A LADY SHOULD BECOME A 'KAAMENEE' [SEXUALLY A TEMPTRESS/ENTICING/AROUSING/SEDUCTRESS] WHEN LORD SHANKARA WOULD BECOME 'KAAMAASKTA' [ SEXUALLY AROUSED/INFATUATED]....ALSO, LORD SHANKARA SAYS THAT HE WOULD BE ABLE TO HAVE SAMAAGAMA [SEXUAL UNION] WITH SUCH A LADY ONLY WHEN HE WOULD NOT BE BUSY CONTEMPLATING ON THE ETERNAL LIGHT CALLED SANAATANA SHIV...ANY LADY WHO WOULD DISTURB HIS SUCH CONTEMPLATION/MEDITATION ON SANAATANA SHIV WOULD HAVE TO LOSE HER LIFE...!
1. It's possible for a man to balance his Yoga life with his marital duties.
2. We may extend the statements made by Lord Shankara [male] to any female, also. So, it's possible for a woman to balance her Yoga life with her marital duties.
3. Both husband and wife must respect each other's spiritual life and marital desires/obligations.
