An Explanation of Sannyas
(Initiation)
Beloveds,Love.A Sannyasin that is trying to follow religious dictates renouncestheir family, attachments and desires.But a Sannyasin that is on the path of the mystic, the truesannyasins, renounce their attachments, and try to acceptabsolutely everything else!Sannyas means "renouncing"; but what it was meant to representis that you are renouncing your attachments, your ambition thatthe world work the way you "think it ought to" work.It had nothing to do with renouncing pork or meat or wine or sexor spaghetti; that was invented later, by priesthoods, because it isfar easier (and more profitable for the priesthoods) to turnsannyas into silly rules, than to actually have to give up your ambitions and ideas about life, which is something much, muchharder.Because the other way, in fact, you are not "renouncing" anything:you are either not doing something that you didn't want to doanyways, or you are simply not acting on something you wouldlike to do.This is why so many celibate priests are sex-obsessed.The ones who aren't are the ones who were sexually numbalready; if something woke up their sexuality they would be sex-obsessed as well.The rest are either having affairs with women in secret, and thus"breaking their vows", or they are forcing sex on little children,animals, etc. because they are too afraid of having an affair andhave bottled up their sexual desires to the point that they have let
 
it warp them; or they are not having any sex at all but have itconstantly on their minds, and redirect it into something far morewarped like religious violence.So you don't give up sex: you give up your ambitions and notionsabout sex.You give up worrying about having it, or not having it, about howto have it, or with YOU.You let it be natural.You don't give up your family or your love for your family; you giveup your ambitions and notions about your family.You stop trying to expect your mother to act in a certain way, or your son to become a certain kind of person.You stop thinking that your family has to be like "leave it tobeaver", or that they should bend to do things your way all thetime.You let it be natural.So real sannyas, our sannyas, is about renouncing one'sambitions and one's own notions of the world; it has nothing to dowith religious rules.The only four rules one agrees to when one receives initiation,and becomes a true Sannyasin in this Mystery School are:1. To meditate every day.2. To receive a new name.3. To wear the mala.4. To wear red.The first of these is the only real rule. The other three are onlyrepetitions of the first rule, because the second rule is simplymantra yoga (to receive and meditate on one's personal mantra,your sannyas name), and the third and fourth are simplysammasati, techniques that you use to try to remember to bemeditative.
 
That is ALL that you need to do to be a "good" sannyasin.Anything that anyone else tells any of you about what Sannyasinsmust or must not do is nonsense.Love
Swami Anand Nisarg
