Sannyasa Waiting List (AGM 2019)

Thursday, 14 March 2019 / Published in Message Board / 942 views

Dear Devotees,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

In the Bhagavad Gita (2.15), His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada writes:

Anyone who is steady in his determination for the advanced stage of spiritual realization and can equally tolerate the onslaughts of distress and happiness is certainly a person eligible for liberation. In the varnasrama institution, the fourth stage of life, namely the renounced order (sannyasa), is a painstaking situation. But one who is serious about making his life perfect surely adopts the sannyasa order of life in spite of all difficulties. The difficulties usually arise from having to sever family relationships, to give up the connection of wife and children. But if anyone is able to tolerate such difficulties, surely his path to spiritual realization is complete.

Lord Caitanya took sannyasa at the age of twenty-four, and His dependents, young wife as well as old mother, had no one else to look after them. Yet for a higher cause He took sannyasa and was steady in the discharge of higher duties. That is the way of achieving liberation from material bondage.

Please find the list of the candidates and their respective waiting list periods.

Is it ok for devotees to give motivational classes without mentioning Krishna at all?
