There is definitely different standard of kanishta-adhikari, madhyam-adhikari, So someone has already come up to rendering 24 hours a day devotional service to Krishna, they shouldn’t be bewildered by some idea of varnasrama or something else as a reason to reduce their service. Rather, someone who’d doing nothing, better to do something and like this, we should always take forward steps. Prabhupada said our purpose is to go step by step. We may not use the jumping process. Those were his exact words; we should go step by step and not jumping process, but that means we should not jump back into the fire of maya.
