We should make our life so simple and easy that we can get our necessities of life without any hard labor and save time to advance in Krsna consciousness. That is perfect civilization. This is not perfect civilization. There is every chance of being influenced by these lusty desires, and that is going on, especially in the Western country. They are lusty for fulfilling these lusty desires. There are so many clubs at night, nightclubs, bottomless and topless and so many advertisements. This is not civilization. Civilization is peaceful life, and we should be satisfied in simple mode of life and always think of Krsna.

Therefore Vrndavana life is like that, Vrndavana life, especially those who are engaged in devotional service. So we have opened this temple to give facility to the elderly section of the human being to come and live with us. We invite all elderly persons, especially retired person, they should come and live with us. We have got a nice guesthouse, and if required, we can construct many other guesthouses. At least those are retired. Everyone should retire after fiftieth year. That is the injunction of the sastras, that pancasordhvam vanam vrajet. After fifty years one should give up family life and vanam vrajetPancasordhvam vanamVanam means Vrndavana.

From Srila Prabhupada’s lecture on Srimad-Bhagavatam 6.1.63 — August 30, 1975, Vrndavana
