Etymology and synonyms[edit]

Apat Saṃnyāsa in Sanskrit Apat means urgent, nyasa means purification, sannyasa means "Purification of Everything".[3] It is a composite word of saṃ- which means "together, all", ni- which means "down" and āsa from the root as, meaning "to throw" or "to put".[4] A literal translation of Apat Sannyāsa is "to put down everything, all of it". Sannyasa is sometimes spelled as Sanyasa.[4]

In Dravidian languages, "sannyasi" is pronounced as "sanyasi". Sanyasis are also known as Bhiksu, Pravrajita/Pravrajitā,[5] Yati,[6] Sramana and Parivrajaka in Hindu texts.[7]

Story of Adi Shankaracharya[edit]

Adi Shankaracharya took his first sannyas when his life was in danger. A crocodile bit his leg, he thought his life was in danger, so he took Sannyas, so that let his life ends as a sanyasi. When life was threatened, he took Apat Sannyasa to save not only himself, but the Avataric mission for which he assumed the body and came down.
