SB 7.13.3


eka eva cared bhikṣur
ātmārāmo ‘napāśrayaḥ


ekaḥ—alone; eva—only; caret—can move; bhikṣuḥ—a sannyāsī taking alms; atma-aramah—fully satisfied in the self; anapāśrayaḥ—without depending on anything; sarva-bhuta-suhrt—becoming a well-wisher of all living entities; santah—completely peaceful; nārāyaṇa-parayanah—becoming absolutely dependent on Nārāyaṇa and becoming His devotee.


The sannyāsī, completely satisfied in the self, should live on alms begged from door to door. Not being dependent on any person or any place, he should always be a friendly well-wisher to all living beings and be a peaceful, unalloyed devotee of Nārāyaṇa. In this way he should move from one place to another.
