Recently I have seen a video in which an elderly man says sanyāsaṃ is prohibited in Kali yuga. His statement is as follows:
Aśvamedha, Gomedha, sanyāsaṃ, offering meat to manes, Begetting children after consuming alcohol should be given up in Kaliyuga.
- What is the sanskrit verse? Which smriti has this statement?
- Why is it said sanyāsaṃ should be given up in Kaliyuga?
- Are there any exceptions for the statement because we have many great acharyas who are sanyāsis' ?
