Radhanath Swami on Preparing for the Final Exam

A human being can use his intelligence to search out for God - that's Why human life is superior to other species. Typically, in youth, when our body is fit and fine, we hardly ever thank the Lord for giving us so much. But soon, the body starts giving troubles - gentle reminders that we are insignificant in front of God, that death is round the corner, and that we can't do anything about it.

An intelligent person dedicates his human life, from a very young age, in the service of God. He employs his body, mind, senses, everything. His lifelong service prepares him well for the final exam - death. Thus using his life for the right cause, he passes the final exam with flying colors; he is relieved of all miseries, for all time.

  2. Thank you very much Radhanath Swami for making us realize a bit that we are going nearer to death everyday and if we don't use this human life for the spiritual practices then we would be the most unfortunate.

  8. How true. I see so many deaths and miseries around but don't consider that I'll also have to face it. But still I don't prepare for it seriously. Thank you Radhanath Swami for the "Gentle Reminder".

  16. Maharaj speaks with such conviction that it boost our faith and enthusiasm to dedicate our lives to God. It's Maharaj's mercy that he is preparing us on 'how to live and how to die'.

  22. As some of Radhanath Swami's disciple told me - "Life is preparation and death is the final exam".

    If we dont prepare, dont even know what is the sylabus - how are we to pass?

  24. What an exalted way Radhanath Swami has taught us here. Everyone of us would meet death one day or other, so why not stick to the teachings of great spiritual masters like Radhanath Swami who are here in this material world just to reclaim souls like me.
