uttam tyag can also be referred as : giving away
contrary to popular belief, renouncing worldly possessions leads to a life of contentment and assists in keeping desires in check. controlling desires lead to an influx of punya karma. giving away is done at the highest level by our monks who renounce not only the household but also their clothes. a person’s strength is measured not by the amount of wealth he accumulates but by the amount of wealth he donates. by this measure our monks are the richest.
giving away the emotions, the root cause of misery, is nischay uttam tyag, which is only possible by contemplating on the true nature of the soul.
