Welcome to our Fall Fundraiser. It takes money and manpower to run Krishna.com. Our staff of enthusiasts tinker tirelessly to bring you the website all about Krishna, delivering Krishna conscious content to over 4000 people a day in 195 countries. That's more than a million people each year. Help us help more people. We still need to raise $12,000 $10,241 to keep Krishna.com alive and vibrant for the next six months. Thank you to those who've contributed $1759 so far. Please help. If everyone reading this gave five dollars—the equivalent of two gallons of gas at current US pump prices—we'd be done with this fundraiser and could go back to doing what we love most...

BG Chap 18 - Difference between sannyāsa and tyāga according to the learned

The learned know that sannyāsa means to give up all activities based on material desire (kāmya karma), such as putreṣṭi (sacrifices for gaining sons) and jyotiṣṭoma (for going to heavenly planets).This implies that one should not give up nitya-karma (daily obligatory activities) such as daily fire sacrifice and sandhya worship. Tyāga means to renounce the results of all activities – daily obligatory (nitya-karma) and out of personal desire (kāmya-karma) rather than giving up the activities themselves. One of the results of nitya-karma is to go to Pitṛloka. Thus sannyāsa means to give up kāmya-karmas completely, and to give up the results of nitya-karmas. Tyāga means to perform all actions, but to give up the desire for results of all those activities.
