Your ancient culture has divided man’s life into four stages and given them the name Ashrama’.

In each stage there are certain ideals and principles laid down, and that is the Dharma of that particular Ashrama.
The fourth—the last Ashrama is Sannyasa Ashrama.

After having fulfilled the duties of the second Ashrama, one must retire and turn the attention to higher things.
The second Ashrama is Grihastha Ashrama, the stage of the householder.
It means marriage, having a wife, children, doing Udyoga, professional duties, social duties, domestic duties to his own Parivar—his mother and father and
