Duties of a Sanyasi

Where: Apr 22′nd 2007, Hungary.
Courtesy: Braja Gopali Dasi.
Essence: “A Sanyasi is not so concerned with the body. He sees the soul. He sees everyone equally. Because he has no envy, is completely satisfied with Krishna Consciousness and has no material aspirations, he is friendly with both the ruffians and the gentle. Sanyasis are meant to go door to door to preach Krishna Consciousness. They voluntarily accept the austerity of travelling and preaching.”
