Radhanath Swami on Life and Soul

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.

  1. Great message by Radhanath Swami. We can learn from his example how he has made the instructions of his spiritual master (Srila Praphupada) his life and soul. If we can adopt even a little of it, we can make our lives successful. All the spiritual scriptures focus of this aspect.

  2. Radhanath Swami Maharaj has performed tremendous Vaishanava seva by helping to deliver multitude of people across the globe by bringing them into the loving embrace of Krishna Consciousness. Srila Prabhupada must be definitely very very pleased with him. And not it is the turn of the followers of Radhanath Swami to please him by expanding KC further into different regions & parts of the world.

  6. What is true Guru Seva has been explained very beautifully by Radhanath Swami. Also it helps to know that Guruseva gives us access to love of God simply by helping him in distributing his compassion to others.
