Radhanath Swami on God's Eternal Gratitude

God's love for us, His children, is unconditional. He never forgets anything we have ever done. Even if we fall down to our lowest nature, God gives us whatever reactions He sees fit to rectify us, but He never forgets what good we have done. He is always waiting for us to turn to Him to uplift us again to our original position. This principle of how we are never lost to God, no matter how little we have served Him, is a manifestation of His opulence of gratitude.

Fallen living entities like us can easily forget anything good that someone may have done for us, and take it for granted, but God never forgets. He's always making some arrangement to bring those who sincerely seek Him back to His abode. God does not simply see what we offer. He sees the sincerity and purpose of the offering. Yes, God sees our faults, and He corrects them in one way or another, but He also sees the service that we have rendered. And if that service is sincere in purpose, He is eternally grateful.

  1. Yes, but for the gratefulness of God and his devotees such as Radhanath Swami, very very few could ever aspire for the love of God.

  5. It is so re-assuring to see that God is always willing to help us - no matter how degraded we become.

    The faith in this principle comes when we see the same with exalted souls like Radhanath Swami - who are ready to help us from any condition we are; even though we may falter and have so many defects in trying to follow their instructions - they are always grateful for anything positive we have done and keep encouraging us...
