"When materialists and speculators resort to apathy (towards the world), the
wickedness of false renunciation arises in their minds.
There are karmis (materialists) and jnanis (speculators) who like to show to
people that they wear tilak, and so on. They say, "I am leaving everything,"
and go to the jungle, but: you want to go the jungle, forest? "Your belly
will go with you! Think about how difficult it will be to maintain your body
there." There are karmis, jnanis, nirvadis, or brahmavadis, but it is all
wickedness, all dustasaya.

And what is necessary?
Avoiding dry renunciation is our duty (suska-vairagya dura kara
When you keep yukta-vairagya (proper renunciation) in your heart, dry
renunciation goes far away. There are so many temples and all facilities, but

"O brother, from now on, avoid dry renunciation. Bring proper renunciation
into your heart and keep it there forever.
loka dekhana gora bhaja tilaka matra dhari'
gopanete atyachara gora dhare churi 
[Just saying, "I am Gora's! I am Gora's!" does not do. Only when you follow
Gora's practices and Gora's conception will you get the proper result. You
show the world you serve Gora simply by wearing tilak but secretly you
misbehave. Gora will catch you, you thief!]
Then it says here:
bhala khaya, bhala pare, kare bahu dhanarjana
yosit-sange rata hana phire ratra-dina
bhala sayya attalika khonje arvachina 
"They eat fancy food, wear fancy clothes, and accumulate immense wealth.
Attached to the company of women, such fools roam about night and day
searching for a mansion with a fancy bed.
"Instead of all this, maintain the body by accepting things that are suitable
and actually necessary for its preservation.

"Discuss resolute devotion in seclusion, and spend your days engaged in the
service of Krishna.
matha mandira dalana badira na kara prayasa
artha thake kara bhai yemana abhilasa 
"Do not endeavour to make monasteries, temples, or big houses, but if you
have wealth, brother, then you can make them, as you
I have money, so I am making many temples: "You have wealth, then do as you
desire." Krishna is giving money to me. I only need a little rice and alu

This is Mahaprabhu's teachings to Sanatan Goswami:

'If you think you can conquer illusory environment, can conquer your ego and
everything else, it is not possible. These are Gurudev's words. He said it is
only possible through sravanam, kirtanam—through practising. Not
in any other way.'
