Sannyäsa Initiation Lecture—Calcutta, January 26, 1973
367) Whether I know everything belongs to Krishna! Taught BY Srila Prabhupada!
———————— So this renouncement, for preaching Krishna consciousness, that is real sannyäsa. Just like when I went to your country, actually sometimes I had to live in a hell according to our Indian standard, Vedic standard. So what can be done? Hell or heaven, I have to do my duty. It doesn’t matter. Factually… I do not want to describe those things. So this sannyäsa means do not care for personal sense gratification—”Oh, this is inconvenience. This is convenience.” Simply go on preaching Krishna consciousness. So this sannyäsa. Anäsritah karma-phalam käryam karma karoti yah, sa sannyäsi yogi. He’s yogi, he’s sannyäsi in everything, who is simply working for Krishna. There will be some result, loss or gain. So if there is loss, that is Krishna’s. If there is gain, that is also Krishna’s. Not that loss is Krishna’s and gain is mine. No. Not like that. Everything Krishna’s. We have to work for Krishna. So, so take this mantra. ————————
