The Glory of Monastic Life
The Glory of Monastic Life
Description
Back of The Book

The Sanyasin, as you all know, is the ideal of the Hindu’s life, and every one by our Shastras is compelled to give up. Every Hindu who has tasted the fruits of this world must give up in the latter part of his life, and he who does not is not a Hindu and has no more right to call himself a Hindu. We know that this is the ideal – to give up after seeing and experiencing the vanity of things. Having found out that the heart of the material world is a mere hollow, containing only ashes, give it up and go back.
