Actually, all of you are more than sannyasis. Anyone who has dedicated his
life to Krishna, he is sannyasi, yogi, and everything. That is the statement
of Bhagavad-gita — one who does not work for his personal benefit is a
sannyasi. It doesn’t matter what is his dress. So all our devotees are more
than sannyasis. We are members of Krishna’s family. Our aim is not to become
a Mayavadi sannyasi, but to become family members of Krishna’s devotees.
Krishna maintains 16,000 families, and if you get a chance to serve in one
of the families, then your life is a success. Real sannyasa means no more
interest in material activities, but simply dedicated to Krishna’s service.
That is real sannyasa. So you are greater than a sannyasi. You train all
these boys to be practical sannyasis in the service of Krishna.
