It is difficult to live the life of a householder. The householder's life is prescribed for one who cannot control his passion. One without passion should take to the path of renunciation.
A householder should not be exclusively engaged in family affairs, tie must perform the sacred duties and have self-control. He should not become a slave of sense enjoyments. He must perform sacrifices to the Rishis, gods, manes and the lower creation.
