One who knows Abhishek personally would understand the context in which He
is saying this. I feel that I need not write regading this as Jaldhar
has already wrote about it. But to supplement this, all I would say is
what is it that is expected from one who uses a room freshner in his
place though he being a Sannyasi. I don't deny there were books from
Sannyasis who were very much learned like Tapasyananda and Ranganathananda
....., but it is difficult for us to find such men now.
Hope I'm not embrassing the esteemed members. Please take it with the
sada shiva samarambham Shankaracharya madhyamam !
asmadacharya paryantham vande guru paramparam !!
