Inspiration To Young Monks !

My boy, Give your body and mind to worldly enjoyments, and the world will destroy them both. Devote them to God and his service, and you will enjoy bodily health, peace of mind and spiritual joy. Give all that you have –your health, wealth, youth, talents, everything to divine. If you give it to worldly life, the world will spoil it and leave you empty in the end.
~Swami Brahmananda (Direct Disciples of Sri Ramakrishna)

NO. To be able to walk on spiritual path one does not need to surrender. One can do reasonable & still attain his spiritual goal. Insistence on surrender is not justified.
