Radhanath Swami on Recipient of Compassion

The love of the spiritual world is manifested in this world as compassion to lift the fallen souls who have rejected God, and are suffering. This compassion is expressed through great souls whose greatest happiness is to see people reconnecting with God. And this compassion is received by one who takes the order of one's spiritual master as one's life and soul and, by that process, is empowered to be the instrument of God's will. Honoring a spiritual master is not just speaking words of praise and offering garlands; it is carrying out the orders of the spiritual master according to one's capacity and pleasing him by the endeavor.

  2. Honoring a spiritual master is to carry out his orders. Without this we cannot receive the compassion that is available. Thus, spiritual life is not passive, its proactive.

  11. Very nice message from Radhanath Swami. He is not only saying these words, but living his life as per the hidden message of these words. Maybe one day I would also be able to follow his words in my life.

  12. What Radhanath Swami says just goes to show how grateful we must be to our spiritual master and our previous acharyas for giving us spiritual knowledge. He also speaks on how we must serve the Guru within our heart very sincerely rather than externally putting up a show.

  18. The heart of a saintly person pains to see the suffering of others who are trying to find happiness where it is not. His love for God manifests thru his compassion for them. Radhanath swami is one such saint who dedicated his life sharing this comapssion.

  22. If one is determined just like HDG SP who made it his life's mission to follow his Guru's instructions to preach Krishna consciousness to the western world, then one's own devotional life is a success.The lives of both Srila Prabhupada and his disciple HH Radhanath Swami is a testimony to this fact.

  23. Maharajah very well explained what he expects from his disciples
    "Honoring a spiritual master is not just speaking words of praise and offering garlands; it is carrying out the orders of the spiritual master according to one's capacity and pleasing him by the endeavor".
    So if we want to receive mercy, ultimately it comes down to follow the instructions of Spiritual Master
