Radhanath Swami on Price for Divine Love

The Bible says, “Seek and you shall find.” If you have hope in any situation and you are looking for service there will be an opportunity for service revealed to you. If you are looking for reason to give up your faith you will find that too. As you approach the Lord, He reciprocates accordingly. If you take full shelter of the Lord, the Lord gives you Himself in full. If you take partial shelter of the Lord, He partially helps and leaves the rest to you.

If we are sincerely trying to taking shelter of God’s message, God will give us unlimited hope and unlimited faith in due course. But if we do not have that hope and faith and we continue with the same sincerity, God sees that we are genuine, we are for real. It is called the dark night of the soul. If you are practicing but you are feeling no love, even you feel your faith waning, but if you carry on practicing that’s the price of divine love.

  2. I was very disappointed because of certain situations in my life. After reading this post by HH Radhanath Maharaj, I have become really hopeful. And I really see that in this situation also I can render valuable service and purity myself. Thank you so much maharaj.

  11. Practising Spirituality in current circumstances of the world is very challenging and the more greater problem is the conditioning that we are carrying in our heart - we can shut the whole world out and sit in a closed room, but what about our minds, thoughts, habits - one word conditioning?

    Radhanath Swami gives a lot of hope and positive direction to purify this conditioning and proceed to deeper levels of faith and experience in Spiritual life

  18. Anything valuable comes with a price tag. The more the value the more the price. So, developing or strenghtening faith in God in our tough times means we have to be sincere.

  22. Radhanath Swami has launched a lot of social & spiritual projects such as Barsana Eye Camp, Mid-Day meal, Share your Care etc. so that people who are keen to lead a devotional life can be properly engaged. Its upto us, how we can make the most of the opportunities provided by Radhanath Swami & progress on the spiritual path.

  24. Dear friends. I found this site which speaks about Radhanath Swami's new book. It seems to be a good book. The autobiography of a great saint.

    Yes, Maharaj nices has made me understand from his instruction that only sincerity matters and that's what Krsna is interested in. I only have to desire genuinely and Krsna will make the oppurtunities appear for me. I pray for Maharaja's blessings that I grab those oppurtunities when it comes and serve the Lord in the way that will be pleasing to Him.

    Srila Radhanath Swami Maharaj explains such profound and deep messages in a very simple and crystal clear way. When will that day be mine, when I will have unflinching faith at the lotus feet of the Lord and His bonafide representative, the Spiriual Master? By reading such posts by Maharaj fills my heart with joy that there is a ray of hope for a fallen soul like myself. Thank you, Maharaj.

  48. Anything in life we get easily then we do not value that thing ,but If we get that after lot of ups and down we really value it.Radhanath Swami is highlighting that "sincerity" is such nice quality that if we maintain consistently, then divine love we can get easily by the mercy of God.

  49. This message from Radhanath Swami is so sublime and mystical. Everytime I read it, I derive newer inspirations, that I had not experienced in previous readings of the same article.
    It motivates me to keep up my struggle to become fully Krishna Conscious, for this struggle is the only way I can show my love for Krishna at this stage and thereby please Him.
    Thank you again.

    Such a nice article by Radhanath Swami. Very akin to "As you sow so shall you reap". As much as we have faith, we reap the benefits having the Lord's mercy.

    The thing that Srila Radhanath Swami Maharaj stresses is that we should be sincere in our spiritual lives. We must have a sincere desire to serve and please the Lord and His representatives, by rendering devotional service. Only then the Lord, being pleased with us, showers His mercy upon us.
