Radhanath Swami on Uniting amongst Difficulties

God consciousness is transforming an apparent danger, transforming what may appear to be a curse into something wonderful. And we could all do that. If our hearts transform, and we look for the proper positive opportunity, we can change difficult situations into glorious situations. Often emergencies bring devotees together, like they have never been united before. Because they need each other. When things are just ordinary, unfortunately, our tendency is to take each other for granted. When there is really an emergency, we need each other. Then we really appreciate each other. And we really help each other to focus on God. Because there is no other shelter. That is one of the great lessons.

    GOD consciousness is such a wonderful uniting force, because one with that consciousness sees everyone in relation to GOD as his children and thus sees everyone to be intimately related to him/her.

  7. Radhanath Swami Maharaj has reflected in a very different & refreshing manner on the subject matter of crisis that confronts ISKCON from time to time & how we can use it to strengthen our dependence on Krishna & deepen our bonds with our Godbrothers & Godsisters.

  9. Absolutly right.By nature there is a tendency to depend up on higher authority in human society.For human beings the Supreme Almighty is ultimate and final authority.In normal circumstances we take every thing granted but as per this instruction from Radhanath Swami we should take things for granted and with grateful heart we must reciprocate each other.Thank you for sharing this article with us.

  20. Radhanath Swami has given a great message here. He always stresses on the fact that "It is important for us to remember that at end of the day all we really have is each other". Unless we unite together for the higher cause, we won't understand that need and importance of unity.
