Q1. I am nearing mid-30s and yet I have not found a girlfriend for 19 years. I have since had no luck in dating. I am a bachelor and concerned about the future. Could this be a karma in this life I have to endure? Is this chastity in my life a punishment for something in one of my past lives?
A1. Well, there are two paths for each individual, in life. They are the path of marriage and family life, and the path of renunciate or sannyasin. Those who choose the path of marriage, have the responsibility of creating as wonderful children as possible. Those who choose the path of renunciate/sannyasin dedicate their life to God and His work (creation of the Communities Of Light). So if you feel that you have been chosen to be a renunciate, that is not a punishment. I t might be an opportunity for you to serve God by dedicating your life to His Work
