Radhanath Swami on Transcendental Friendliness

Transcendental friendliness is to do everything possible to help a soul come closer to God. It means to feel for the physical, mental, and spiritual sufferings of others. It means to pray for the betterment of even our so called worst enemies and to forgive them even before they offend us while praying with a positive spiritual motive for their deliverance. If we are envious or seek revenge, then such feelings are the real enemies; we must conquer these real internal enemies, not the so called enemies outside.

  3. The message here is something which a normal person can't give. This is something which can be given only by a person who has implemented this message in his/her life and there is no doubt that Radhanath Swami is that person.

    Radhanath Swami is putting the highest benchmark for us to improve our values, our standards of behaviour---basically to concentrate on our faults, and not blame others.

  8. Thank you very much for sharing this message. Even praying for the enemies to forgive them is the real compassion. One should be blessed to have these qualities. Only by the mercy of Guru and Krishna, one is blessed with these qualities.

    Spiritual world is not a void as imagined by some; rather, it is a realm of tremendous variety, where true meaning of all relations can be understood. Even friendship exists there, but not as we conceive it around us. Here, Swamiji is explaining what true friendship is like.

  41. What really bothers us is our own consciousness. "If your eyes are positive you will like the whole world". If your tongue is positive the whole world will like you," as Maharaj puts it succinctly.All glories to Maharaj.
