How to Apply For Sannyasa

Dear Candidates,

Please accept our most humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

A devotee before applying to become a sannyasa candidate should have established or should have had participated in developing successful preaching programs in a broad area of ISKCON. We consider preaching successful when people unfamiliar with, as well as devotees on the path of Krsna consciousness, are inspired to and practically increase their commitments to Krsna consciousness and pure devotional service.

In general, we consider devotees are increasing their commitment to Krishna consciousness and pure devotional service when they begin to attend devotional programs and then progresses from regular participation in worship services to becoming attached to devotee association, to developing a regular sadhana, to the rendering of substantial service to Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s movement and then becoming exemplary devotees who help others advance in Krishna consciousness through their example and preaching.
