Radhanath Swami on Purification by Fire

By keeping crude gold in fire, everything that is not gold is gradually burned away; what remains is pure effulgent gold. Sometimes in this material world, we find ourselves in fire like situations; our mind, our senses, and our very heart, is just burning in anguish. But if we remain pure in our motives, then the fires of all the tribulations of this world only increase our devotion and purify our heart.

    This reinforces the crux of spiritual truth that whatever the Lord does in our lives IS for our good---whether we understand it or not, whether we thank Him or not.

  6. Nice message from Radhanath Swami. He has told us that even if there are averse conditions in our lives, we should remain steady/fixed in our devotional service for the Lord and His devotees.

  11. Self- introspection is a must for understanding our motive behind actions.If the motive is simply to render pure devotional service, come what may, we are perfectly protected by Guru and Krishna.Thanks Maharaj for this understanding.
