Different Shades of Saffron

ASK BVKS | January 6, 2014 |

English; Salem, Tamil Nadu, India

Question:

Why do different saffron renunciants wear different shades of saffron in different temples even if they are initiated by the same Guru (for example, Pune and Chowpatty)? I am not even sure why different sannyasi gurus wear different shades of saffron either.

The question I wanted to ask is that since we are all one family; why don't we have one standard?

Question:

I have been practicing for several years but when recently asked by another young devotee regarding when one gets the taste for chanting I had to frankly admit that I hadn't got it yet. I can understand that it is due to offences and inattentive chanting. If it is not too impertinent to ask, may I request you to share your personal experience about chanting. I have heard from your lectures that you were chanting 16 rounds from the day you joined. Of course it depends on the devotee's level of sincerity and one cannot put a timeline on when one gets a taste from chanting and consequently other things such as waking up early, but hearing from you will definitely inspire those of us who are struggling.
