Prabhupāda: Their business will be to exploit the poor citizens. And they will be embarrassed and harassed so much: by one side, no sufficient rain, and therefore scarcity of food; and the other side, taxation by the government. In this way, the people will be so much harassed that they'll give up their home and go to the forest. Very piti . . . unless they take to Kṛṣṇa consciousness, they'll not be saved. The varṇāśrama college has to be established immediately. Everywhere, wherever we have got our center, a varṇāśrama college should be established to train four divisions: one class, brāhmaṇa; one class, kṣatriya; one class, vaiśya; and one class, śūdra. But everyone will be elevated to the spiritual platform by the spiritual activities which we have prescribed. There is no inconvenience, even for the śūdras.
Prabhupāda: Hare Kṛṣṇa.
Devotee: Are śūdras supposed to take sannyāsa also?
Prabhupāda: No. Why?
Devotee: Śūdras . . .
Prabhupāda: Those who are śūdras, they should not be allowed to take sannyāsa. Only those who are qualified brāhmins, they'll be allowed to take sannyāsa.
Bhagavān: Kṣatriyas used to take sannyāsa too?
Prabhupāda: Kṣatriyas . . . some of them. Not all.
Gurudāsa: Yudhiṣṭhira Mahārāja?
Gurudāsa: Yudhiṣṭhira Mahārāja.
Prabhupāda: They did not take sannyāsa, but they left home.
Gurudāsa: I see.
Prabhupāda: There is no need of accepting sannyāsa. One has to perform the devotional activities. That is real thing. Simply by changing dress, one does not improve—unless he takes to the, seriously, principles of devotional service. But in the Kali-yuga, they'll think, "Because I have changed my dress, I have become a big sannyāsī." "Because I have got a sacred thread, now I am a brāhmin." No. There must be regular training. Hare Kṛṣṇa.
