uttiṣhata jāgrata prāpya varān nibodhata |
kṣrasya dhārā niśitā duratyayā durgam pathas tat kavayo vadanti ||
“Arise! Awake! Wake up your Self and awaken others! Approach the great Awakened Ones till you awaken and manifest your Complete Self. Sharp as the blade of a razor is that path (of living advaita), so declare the wise beings – long and hard to tread, and difficult to cross.”
~ kathopaniṣad, 1.3.14
Contribution of sannyasis to the planet
On the sacred land of Vedic India, have walked countless powerful ochre-robed beings who carried pure hearts of compassion and gigantic wills to selflessly enrich humanity. They are the Sannyasis (monks) who called the world their home and walked door-to-door awakening people to the truth, while healing and blessing them. The whole of India has been built by Sannyasis. Whether it is architecture, art, science, culture or language, Sannyasis have contributed the best things to vedic tradition.
ParamahamsaNithyananda’s vision of a Vedic Hindu renaissance for India includes the revival of the sannyas (monastic) order. He is enriching today’s youth to live this ultimate path of completion and blissful renunciation.
