“False renunciation is renouncing something as material when it can actually be used in Krishna consciousness which effectively spiritualizes it. False renunciation is also doing austerities, which are not authorized by the spiritual master, out of some false ego. There may be other types of false renunciation, but there is also real renunciation where one voluntarily accepts something they don’t like for the sake of Lord Krishna.”
