2009 09 12. Saturday.
I found a good reason why I don't want to become an Amma renunciate (at least for now). As an Amma renunciate, you're not supposed to leave the ashram without Amma's permission. From mid March to early April is something called "Temple Season" where the local temples blare out this horrible screeching 'music' from early morning till late at night. A number of people leave the ashram at that time. When I was here in 2006 during temple season it was horrible. So I plan to leave when it starts up next year. As a renunciate, I would have to stay unless Amma gave me permission to leave.
