The last of the four ashramas or stages of life is the Sannyasa ashrama. It is the stage of life dedicated totally to the spiritual pursuit. This stage is characterised by the total giving up of self-centered life, and dedicating oneself for the welfare of the society. The inspiring story of Vidyaranya, who was instrumental in establishing the Vijayanagar empire, is chosen to depict this. Vidyaranya had entered Vanaprastha ashram after fulfilling his household duties. One day, brothers Harihara Raya and Bukka Raya meet him and he learns that they were captives with King Tuglak and escaped at the first available opportunity. Now they wish to free their motherland Vijaynagar from the rule of Tuglak. Vidyaranya commits himself to the service of the Nation, and as a Sannyasi spends his life in the welfare of the society.
