SANNYAS IS ETERNAL ROMANCE
TALKS FROM MORNING SATSANG ON JULY 20 2012 AT Kodaikanal, INDIA In today's morning satsang, Paramahamsa Nithyananda (Swamiji) responds to a question on the nature of sannyas, the Vedic monastic lifestyle. Society's expectations of sannyas are that one should always be smiling and appear compassionate. These superficial characteristics only create pseudo-enlightenment, since they are not authentic expressions: they are about exterior appearance rather than internal integrity. When we are honest to the full extent of our capacity to perform, we breathe life into the science of enlightenment and radiate it to the cosmos. We fall in love with everyone. That is the essence of sannyas: an eternal romance with the universe.
