Sannyasa is for Simplicity

A lot of the requests in this article show a healthy lifestyle. Many of us should follow them.

But if due to disease we need special help, then we don't need to take sannyasa. Sannyasa is for a simple lifestyle. A sannyasi leads a life which is not dependent on others but is dependent on Krishna. This person, however, cannot even get water for neti. He expects most things to be done for him.

It is not surprising, when the position of sannyasi comes with the perk of free servants.
