Being as Srila Prabhupada indicated that Krishna consciousness can be given more time in one's life at older age, when the family has grown up, maybe all the early devotees who had to leave active service to maintain their families could now be given rooms in the ISKCON temples all over the world, and once again take up the serious push for western preaching.
The varnaprasta ashram and its strong establishment would be very pleasing to Prabhupada, although maybe the days of sharing rooms, as bramacaris, may not be appropriate. A little more independence would be needed, and facilities. Ladies and men given rooms and all kinds of development of preaching could take place, along with hearing and chanting together.
Perhaps some of our vacant centres could advertise, and our temples may once again be full of resident devotees.
