Srila Prabhupada recalls accepting sannyasa

    Posted on September 9, 2014

...this is called tapasya. I do not like to go out of my home, very comfortable home, happy home, but sastra says, "You must." So I have to
accept inconveniences. If I leave my home, comfortable home, I do not know where to live, how to eat, where to stay. These are experienced. When we took sannyasa, in the beginning, we thought like that, but by the grace of God, Krsna, we are not uncomfortable.
