Sannyasi is a person who has renounced all selfish desires and works for the benefit of the world. Amma has been initiating her disciples into Sannyasa since 1989. Sannyasa at Amma’s ashram is given in the Puri order of Shankara lineage. The ochre colour of the new robes indicates the flame of renunciation.
The celibate disciples who have given up the pleasures of a material lifestyle and who are engaged in the life long exercise of practicing Amma’s teachings in their own lives are called Brahmacharis.; Women are referred to as Brahmacharinies The formal initiation into Brahmacharya involves the donning of yellow robes and the acceptance of new names suffixed with Chaitanya (consciousness). The yellow colour of the robes indicates the beginning of the flame of renunciation.
“For a genuine Sannyasi, the whole world is a garden and each individual is a flower therein. Such a person belongs to the whole world and has no particular caste, creed, sect or religion. Everyone is equal in his eyes.
