Guru Maharaj: Lord Caitanya was in Agradvīpa and His brahmacārī assistant had kept some digestive spices from the previous day. So, when he did that, Lord Caitanya said, that you are not taking the vairāgī path, you are taking the gṛhastha path, for they keep savings for rainy days,emergency So you should become a gṛhastha. So, he was shocked because he wasn’t planning that, but the Lord had given him that instruction. I don’t know why you are asking the duties of a gṛhastha to a sannyāsī? What I can see is that gṛhasthas think ahead for difficult times, and in that way making some plan for the future seems to be alright for the gṛhastha, But the sannyāsīs, we have to depend on Kṛṣṇa more.
