A Cup of Tea (128)
Be like steel – clay will no longer do.
To be a sannyasin is to be a soldier of God.
Serve your parents – even more than before,
give them the joy of a sannyasin son.
But don’t relent,
keep your resolution firm,
it will bring glory to your family.
The son who compromises with a thing like sannyas
shames his family.
I have complete trust in you,
that’s why I have been a witness to your sannyas.
Laugh and go through everything.
Listen to everything and laugh.
This is your sadhana.
Let the storms come and go.
