Radhanath Swami quotes

Japa, bhajana and Kirtan are superficial to the extent we are not humble. When we have opulence we get pride. But one opulence attracts Krishna - humility.

Inconvenience for the service of Krishna is more precious and valuable that the entire creation. Maya can trap us; maya can even trap us in our success.

A Request for Prayer

Janardhana Lila pr., a disciple of H.H. Radhanath Swami, has recently been diagnosed with lymphocytic leukemia (Blood Cancer) and will be starting the most painful chemotherapy treatment from tommorow. Currently the Dr's are giving him a 50% chance to recover from this life taking disease.

He (37 yrs), along with his wife and 2 children are full time resident devotees of the Govardhan Farm community in Wada, Thane. (Mumbai)In the recent past, the miraculous recovery of H.H. Jayapataka Swami was only possible by the intense prayers of devotees all over the world.

Devotees from Sri Sri Radha Gopinath Mandir have most humbly requested all of us to sincerely pray that Janardhan lila pr. and his family can pass through this most difficult and testing phase of their lifes, and continue their selfless services at the Lotus feet of Guru and Gauranga. -

Nectarean quotes

Krsna is creator, maintainer and destroyer of everything. He is the Absolute Truth. He is the goal of life. We should take shelter of Him through devotional service. All kinds of knowledge, all kinds of austerities we may perform; the conclusion is that if we do not take shelter of Krsna, (then) it is all simply a waste of time. Just like a devotee; a devotee may work very hard to make money and with that money he decides that they are going to cook a wonderful feast and work for days to prepare the preparation but then he never offers it to Krsna, he does everything but does not bring it to the alter and never offers it, (then) it is a waste of time. Once you offer it to Krsna then everything else you have done, the process, is glorious; it is devotional service. Materialistic people, they are performing so many activities which are simply ugra karma, just foaming in the mouth, working so hard, waste of time. Sometimes devotees do the same activities but in the end they offer it to Krsna and therefore everything are auspicious from the beginning to the end because the conclusion is right. So the final conclusion of understanding everything about this material existence, God and the living entity is to take shelter of Krsna whole heartedly.

All Glories to a Divine Master

yasya prasadad bhagavat-prasado
yasyaprasadan na gatih kuto 'pi
dhyayan stuvams tasya yashas tri-sandhyam
vande guroh shri-charanaravindam

By the mercy of the spiritual master one receives the benediction of Krishna. Without the grace of the spiritual master, one cannot make any advancement. Therefore, I should always remember and praise the spiritual master. At least three times a day I should offer my respectful obeisances unto the lotus feet of my a spiritual master.
Sri Sri Gurvashtaka
(8)- Srila Vishvanatha Chakravarti Thakura

H.H.Radhanath Swami is mercy incarnate who has taken immense personal pains and troubles to propogate the divine mission of Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and recently Srila Prabhupada. I offer my most humble obeisances unto such divine masters who have taken upon themselves to spread this immaculate, spotless, and pure message for the delivarance of all mankind and living entities.
