“According to Manu’s authority on behaviour,
in Kālī Yuga Saṃyāsa is not possible!
Sthiti Krama (sustaining phase of life) is a transition to the next stage
where you begin to accept the inevitable.
There is a great Saṃskāra of youth.
We then accept that there will be a setting of the Sun.
You eat less, reflect more, you think of God.
This is Saṃhara Krama (sequence of drawing together, contracting).”
– TKV Desikachar France 1983
