    Hare Krsna Prabhuji,


    I saw your profile - you are student chanting 3 rounds.

    See, this losing interest in material life is all too familiar to us - this is simply escapism from the drudgery of studying. No choice, you have to complete your studies.
    If you are really feeling that everything is useless, maybe chant more. Come to 16 rounds, become an adult, get a degree before you decide the course of your life.
    Regarding the world being false, that is incorrect understanding as per our Gaudiya Vaishnav Sampradaya. We don't say world is false, we say it is temporary. As far as giving up luxuries is concerned, you can give up internally, externally the activities remain the same for you now. Do not expect opulent prasadam, or clothes, or luxurious means of transport. That is enough for now,
    Study well, do well in your exams, become an ambassador of Krsna, such that people look at you and say - this is how an ideal Krshna devotee should be.
    Your servant,
    Radha Rasamayi DD
  • Hare Krishna,
    Can you tell why are you feeling everything is false so suddenly? What's ur age, marital status and job if its not too personal. Can you share.
    I am asking this because usually people come to vairagya state out of sudden loss of a close relative, or breakup in marriage or love or some unfull filled desires are out of some mental depression states.
    I cannot advice anything if i cannot know ur mental state or conditions that made you opt for renunciation.
    Pls. tell us about yourself.
    Because these circumstances are temporary the vairagya of death of a near or dear...can last max to a year or so. If out of depression it needs treatment. If its out of unrequited love then its just temporary phase. It will pass on.
