Why did he give up everything and became a brahmachari? What a thing to do at such a young age. He gives up the world and he chants, wakes up early in the morning when other people sleep. He is already awake, even in the winter he takes cold bath and he doesn’t even have his own bedroom. So, who would want to live like that? So, wouldn’t it become very boring at such a young age give up everything, no gambling, no intoxication, nothing…?
