"A griha (house) can be converted into an ashram.
An ashram is a place where people devote all their time and energy to the remembrance of God,
doing selfless service and developing qualities like love, patience and respect for others.
Family life can also be like this. That is why a householder devotee is known as a grihasthashrami,
a person who leads an ashram life while remaining in his house.
He is a person who tries hard to attain the supreme goal,
bliss, even while living with his wife and children."
