meaning

There are many who go with matted locks, many who have clean shaven heads, many whose hairs have been plucked out; some are clothed in saffron, yet others in various colors — all just for a livelihood. Seeing truth revealed before them, still the foolish ones see it not. Stanza attributed to Totakacharya.

Note :- this should not be understood as sankara says both sanyasi and samsari is same . Here he describes from the state of hightened awareness. here he talks about the importance of  attaining the state within otherwise no use of what ever role u take in outward world. The strengthening point for this , the same adisankara sung few verses in "kowpeena panchagam" a song which talks about the glory of beings who live just with loin cloth
