Radhanath Swami on Healthy Fear

Devotees are fearless because they have taken the shelter of God. They are confident that God will save them. Yet, at times the devotees are very fearful. But this fear is different. It is not the fear of death or of losing everything. It is actually the fear of displeasing God. Such a fear is regarded billions and trillions of times more desirable than being fearless.

  4. Such great ideals set up a rich and fulfilling life. A life without principles is quite worthless. Radhanath Swami teaches the highest principles and shows how to follow them joyfully.

    If we lose the fear of displeasing God, it means we consider ourselves accountable to nobody.

  6. This is a very wonderful article on 'healthy fear' by Radhanath Swami. Becoming fearless sometimes can be otherwise seen as becoming arrogant & proud and less dependent on God.

  9. Radhanath Swami says that any emotion, even fear, dovetailed in the service of God is many times better than the best emotion but without God.

  10. Yes, devotees are always fearless about their being put into problematic situations because they seek shelter of the Lord at those times. Radhanath Swami has very nicely briefed about the same here.

  12. Thank you very much for sharing. Devotees are fearless for the material problems as they are in the hands of the Supreme Lord. They are only fear about the fall down in Consciousness
