Kadamba Kanana Swami was speaking in Sweden on the topic of renunciation:
Renunciation is nice but all the renunciation in the world will be of no value unless one becomes attached to Lord Krishna. Merely renouncing everything will not save one from the clutches of maya, the illusionary energy of the Lord, and thus one cannot become free from the cycle of birth, old age, disease and death. However if one becomes attached to Lord Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, via devotional service unto Him, one will be satisfied with their state of natural renunciation and thus be able to become free from the clutches of maya.
He mentioned that he liked the fact that Jayadwaita Swami (his own spiritual master) is fully satisfied with being a renounced personality, which can only be due to his obvious attachment to Lord Krishna.
So we should not concentrate on renunciation, instead simply try to attach yourself to the devotional service of Lord Krishna and in this way, you will be satisfied with whatever situation the Lord before you.
