Is it necessary to take saffron cloth to become a saint?

[A question by Dr. Balaji]

Swami replied: Saffron cloth is not at all necessary to become a saint in the present days. Instead of the saffron cloth, you must have a laptop to become a saint. The duty of the saint is to propagate the spiritual knowledge in the world. Ancient generations were neither having good conveyances nor laptops. They used to physically move from one place to the other to propagate the true spiritual knowledge. Work is important and not the external dress and place. You can realize this fact from the present situation also in which employees are working from home without going to office and also are paid equally. God blessed us with computer technology and we are very fortunate compared to the old generations. Due to the difficulty in writing technologies, debates were always oral and oral debates have many defects. Debates in writing have several merits like that you need not give reply immediately, you can patiently think and write, you can even correct your own statements in writing and doing so, your ego is not hurt and so on.
