He showed outward rejection of material things and would throw away valuables from His house. Due to His remarkable intelligence elders tried to convince Him to pursue His education. Bhagavanji was set in His decision and in the year 1962 He entered the 'Sanyasashram' and was given the  name 'Vidyaranya' by 35th Acharya of Sringeri, Pujyasri Abhinava Vidyatheertha Swami.
