Some people are very practical renunciates. What did they renounce? Karela, or bitter gourd ?
Most people don’t like it anyway, so it’s amongst the easiest things to renounce. Like a shortcut on the spiritual path almost. But is it so?
My Guru in chapter 18 verse 7 of the Gita clearly states that renouncing in ignorance is tamasik.
He follows up with verse 8, where he says that renouncing for fear of physical strain is rajasik. Like if I hate going to work, and have Monday morning blues, and decide to just sit and home and not work at all, that is rajasik renunciation.
The only correct way to renounce, is the sattvik way. More tomorrow.
