Re: doubt on prapatti

dear bhagavatas,
adiyEn would like to mention something about
brahnacharya. in this connection adiyEn would like to
refer to prasna upanishad  - the reply to first prasna
defines brahmacharya for householder as joining in the
nuptial bed with ones legally wedded wife at night
(not daytime)"samyujyante ratya ratrau tat
brahmacaryam eva" meaning thereby 'giving play to
passion at night at proper time is as good as
contenance'. this is the path that a grahasta prapanna
has to take; of course ever with 'mahavisvaasam' as 
the guiding light along this path.
