Renunciation (Sanyasa) cannot come by emotions

The renunciation (Sanyasa) cannot come by emotions if the cause is quarrel in the family and cannot be real if the aim is to earn the lively hood. Arjuna ( a devotee of God) wanted to take Sanyasa based on emotion developed in killing his grandfather. Sanyasa means detachment from the bonds of family. But Arjuna wanted to take Sanyasa due to attachment to the bonds of his family members like grandfather etc. Sanyasa is a natural consequence of the intensive attachment (devotion) to God. The emotion should be in the devotion and should not be in the detachment from the family.
