Whole problem is sex life.

Joshomatinandan : Sometimes Prabhupada was very tolerant of his devotees. After he read some letters from New York about Bali Mardan and his wife, Prabhupada said, "The whole problem is sex life. Yan maithunadi-grhamedhi-sukham hi tucchani. Tucchani means insignificant. One may think that sex is the greatest platform of happiness, but actually that happiness is insignificant. In fact, sex life is a source of distress. We have so many problems because of sex life." Although the situation in the New York temple was a big problem, Prabhupada spoke in this way for five minutes and then dropped it. He reduced every problem to a philosophical understanding because he saw everything from a philosophical viewpoint. I saw that in his every action Prabhupada never thought of himself as the doer but fully dependent on Krishna. He would pursue a certain line and leave success or failure up to Krishna.
