You cannot renounce the world all at once. The world is a vast university. Nature is the
best teacher. In the world you can develop virtues like mercy, tolerance, etc. You cannot
develop them if you remain in a cave. The world is the best teacher. Gradually, when you have
evolved, you can renounce. Guru Nanak remained in the world with two or three children.
There is nothing wrong in the world. Prayer will remove all obstacles.
