Isn’t it easier and safer to experience material enjoyment and then renounce it?

by Chaitanya CharanMarch 19, 2012


I have seen many times, that after experiencing sense gratification, you eventually get fed up of it and then it is easier to renounce. Isn’t this a smart way to renounce than abruptly renouncing the world as brahmacari’s do since they will always have something lurking in their mind, a desire to enjoy sense gratification since they have never experienced it? Don’t you think it is easier to renounce a material desire after experiencing the futility of it by practical experience, since that will leave no doubt in the mind or leave no desire in the mind about experiencing it?

    Superb explaination, nicely given with good examples.
    Also, very true that we almost everytime forget the frustrations.
    Also, differentiation between Frustration and Detachment is well emphasized.
    Thank You for such a nice explaination!
