In our Krsna consciousness movement we do not recommend that you give up your occupation, give up your wife and children, and become a sannyäsi, a renunciant. No, that is not our movement. Among us are not only sannyäsis but also brahmacäris [celibate students], grhasthas [married people], and vänaprasthas [retired people]. Everyone is welcome. Everyone can worship Krsna. There is no rule that only a certain class—brähmanas or sannyäsis or brahmacäris or Hindus—can take part. No. Krsna is open to everyone. Mäm hi pärtha vyapäsritya ye ’pi syuh päpa-yonayah [Bg. 9.32]. Krsna is open even for a person born in a lower-grade family. One simply has to adopt the means to approach Him—namely, giving up sense enjoyment and practicing the purifying process of Krsna consciousness. TQE 2 MATTER, SPIRIT, AND THE CONTROLLER OF BOTH.
