First, Svamiji wanted to establish varnasrama-dharma in Western countries, so first you should try to adopt all these things. Ladies should not try to divorce. Husbands should not try to divorce. Without doing these things, how can they enter into bhakti? Oh, very hard. If divorcing two times, three times, ten times, twenty times or more than that, it means they are nothing. Only this kanti-mala, tilaka and outer shape will not save us. So then we can also divorce Krsna? And they are divorcing. We should follow varnasrama-dharma. Brahmanas were following that, but Caitanya Mahaprabhu said, eho bahya, age kaho ara. It is an external thing.
Why? Because that brahmana was not a pure devotee. Sometimes he was like this, sometimes like that, sometimes nothing. He was not one-pointed and he had some worldly requirements for Krsna. “My family should be okay. I should be happy. Oh Krsna, give me bread and butter.” Like this. He has not left anyabilasita. He was not anyabilasita-sunya. So many requirements were there. Either he will want moksa (liberation), happiness in this world, or svarga (heaven). It is outwardly. This brahmana has no idea of krsna-tattva, bhakti-tattva, jiva-tattva, or anything. If you want to be a pure devotee, then you will have to cross this varnasrama-dharma.
