Radhanath Swami on Bona fide Enjoyment

Krishna Consciousness in its essence is not a dry philosophy of denying yourself of what everyone else is enjoying. Real essence of Krishna Consciousness is learning how to be a bona fide enjoyer. For the soul, enjoyment is in service, in love for God, in love for every living being as part of God. Therefore, real enjoyment is in being an instrument of God's compassion, in the service of all others. It is dynamic, wonderful and it is available to everyone.

  1. It was this aspect of the philosophy that initially attracted me closer to spiritual life. Without this perspective, "spirituality" often sounds scary.

  3. Radhanath Swami has explained the essence of Krishna Consciousness in a very wonderful way. It is not about renouncing as much as it is about engaging our mind, senses, material possessions in the loving service of God.

  10. as a doctor prescribes medicine for healthy future and proscribes some do's and dont's to get cured quickly and to live healthy again. Similary KC is also not only negation of this material so called enjoyment but to get connected to the source of unlimited bliss through prescribed methods coming from Guru, Sadhu and Shastra.

  12. If we love & serve God the way Radhanath Swami does, then we will never experience any anxiety or sorrow. Rather we will be in spiritual ecstasy all the time.

    Radhanath Swami presents God Consciousness as something very pleasurable, joyful, vibrant and satisfying because he has felt all of that.
