TEXT 69

vedānta-paṭhana, dhyāna,—sannyāsīra dharma
tāhā chāḍi’ kara kene bhāvukera karma


SYNONYMS

vedānta-paṭhana—studying Vedānta philosophy; dhyāna—meditation; sannyāsīra—of a sannyāsī; dharma—duties; tāhā chāḍi’—giving them up; kara—You do; kene—why; bhāvukera—of the fanatics; karma—activities.


TRANSLATION

“Meditation and the study of Vedānta are the sole duties of a sannyāsī. Why do You abandon these to dance with fanatics?


PURPORT

As explained in regard to verse 41, Māyāvādī sannyāsīs do not approve of chanting and dancing. Prakāśānanda Sarasvatī, like Sārvabhauma Bhaṭṭācārya, misunderstood Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu to be a misled young sannyāsī, and therefore he asked Him why He indulged in the association of fanatics instead of executing the duty of a sannyāsī.
