bibhryat—one should use; yadi—if; asau—a person in the renounced order; vasah—a garment or covering; kaupina—a loincloth (just to cover the private parts); acchadanam—for covering; param—that much only; tyaktam—given up; na—not; lingat—than the distinguishing marks of a sannyasi; danda-adeh—like the rod (tridanda); anyat—other; kincit—anything; anapadi—in ordinary undisturbed times.
A person in the renounced order of life may try to avoid even a dress to cover himself. If he wears anything at all, it should be only a loincloth, and when there is no necessity, a sannyasi should not even accept a danda. A sannyasi should avoid carrying anything but a danda and kamandalu.
