VERSE 14

The ascetic with the matted locks, the man with the shaven head, he who has pulled out his hair, the man of the kaashaya robe, they have eyes but fail to see. All these are disguises to cheat the world and fill the belly.

Renouncing is not a matter of external show. It is a victory that has to be won in the mind. But what is it that we see in the world? We see the shaven head or the long matted hair and such other outward signs. If the desires burning in the heart are not quenched, these external forms mean nothing. The show of renunciation is quite often a means to fill the belly. 'Why this vain show? Give it up', says Sri Sankara.
