Radhanath Swami on The Highest Principle

Any confusion, ethical decision or moral dilemma can be solved if we place our perceptions on the foundation of higher principles. These higher principles are the core of our nature, and the basis of all our actions. Being part and parcel of God, who is ever blissful, every living entity is spontaneously and perpetually seeking pleasure or avoiding pain. But, even in this world, we can understand that there is no higher pleasure than love. The variety of forms of success or acquisition can give pleasure only to the senses and the mind. Only love can give pleasure to the heart, which is the throne on which our very being is seated.

The soul's nature is to feel God's love and to love God. And where there is love for God, there is love for every living being, because every living being is a part of God. From love for God is derived compassion for other living beings. That is the perfection of human life, and the real happiness - the highest principle.

  4. From love of God is derived compassion for other living beings. No wonder the social workers who work only for bodily needs do not achieve desired results - their work is not based on love of God.

    Loving someone---be it a parent, spouse or our children---is pleasurable if we see them as parts and parcels of God.
