Radhanath Swami on The Ever-joyful Spiritual Activities

In the Kingdom of God, or even in this world, when one is God conscious, there is no such thing as getting bored or not knowing what to do with time. In this world, when one is devoid of God consciousness, one tries to come out of loneliness and drown away boredom in different types of activities and entertainment but is challenged for want of variety. But in the spiritual world everything is ever fresh; even the same activities take on different never-before-experienced forms each time. This can be experienced even in this world when one with God consciousness takes to the chanting of the Holy Names - it is an ever-joyful process even though repeated thousands of times every day.

  2. What a wonderful message from Radhanath Swami. Anyone who has got even a little taste of chanting the Holy Names, he can clearly see that he is surely getting something which can not be compared to anything in this material world.

  7. There is simply an endless ocean of deeply engaging and highly instructional literature on the pastimes of Lord Sri Krsna and Lord Sri Ram. One just has to take the initiative.

  8. Wonderfully explained by Radhanath Swami. If we want to be high for ever - ecstatic/blissful - we have to engage in Spiritual activities. If we want to get bored, we can seek them on material platform...

    Radhanath Swami points out that spiritual life is ever-fresh; our lack of seriousness makes it mundane it apparently repetitive.

  22. Radhanth Swami is so very true. Everyone on the spiritual path would agree that it is not at all boring the hear the same mantra over and over again for years together. We otherwise get so easily bored when we hear the same words again and again just for a very hours.

  24. Radhanath Swami makes a wonderful point here when he says that chanting, even though apparently a repetitive activity performed everyday, is ever-joyful to the chanters. Why? Because GOD is ever-fresh, and anything in relation to GOD is also ever-fresh and ever-blissful.

  25. The nature of a divine soul is that it is always active.But activity in connection with God(Sri-Sri Radha and Krishna) keep soul blisful forever.Anything else than this keeps soul searching for his eternal happines.Therfore I am very much greatful to Radhanath Swami for giving us a process of chanting of the Gods names.
