Everyone should be sannyasi – even householders
Below are two different things- a lectures and a conversation-but they both are on the same topic.
Sannyasa or renunciation of actions. In order to serve Krsna, or enter fire, as Srila Prabhupada explains, we have to become like fire or like Krsna-namely pure.
Now here below in this example he explains how one works in this material world outside the walls of some Krsna temple, where he or she may have a job or some business.
It is easy to understand if one is a bramacari or sannyasi then all his business (at least in theory) is Krsna related and therefore no reaction comes from this transcendental work.
Now what happens to the rest of us who don’t live as a bramacari, brahmacarini or sannyasi? How do we live in this world and still incur no reactions to our work?
I would think this is a good question most devotees have asked themselves at least once or twice. Srila Prabhupada, as our guru gives us that answer below.damaghosa das

It is not so easy to become Vaisnava, as Srila Prabhupada many times explains.
SB 3.29.8 purport
To act under the direction of a bona fide spiritual master with a motive to satisfy the Supreme Personality of Godhead is puredevotional service. But if one has a motive for personal sense gratification, his devotional service is manifested differently. Such a man may be violent, proud, envious and angry, and his interests are separate from the Lord’s.
