Radhanath Swami on The Common Center

There are two types of centers: self centeredness and God centeredness. Self centeredness means the “what’s in it for me” attitude, and God centeredness means “what’s in it for the Lord”. When we have a common center, there’s unity and love. But as soon as we take God out of the center, we become the center. There is no in-between; the center is either the Lord or me. And the “me” can get extended to mine. For example “my nation”, leading to conflicts between people from different nations. But with God in the center, the whole universe is God’s and we are all brothers and sisters. We cannot have such friendly relationships unless the Lord is really in the centre.

  4. Radhanth Swami has explained very nicely how by putting God in the centre, our needs are also fulfilled whereas when we put ourselves in the centre, we cannot be eternally satisfied, how much ever we try.

  6. Radhanath Swami has pointed out the root cause of the hatred between people, societies, communities and nations, which emerged as a fights and wars among them. If we make God as the center of societies etc, everything would be alright.

  15. Very clearly explained concept of 'I and Mine'. The whole material world revolves around the false ego that this world is for my enjoyment. Radhanath Swami explains the attitude of a true spiritualist that this world is God's and everything is created for His enjoyment.

  20. HH Radhanath swami maharaj given one solution for all the material problems, if every home is God centered there is no chance of enemity or differences between people. Otherwise allways quarrelsome, fight each other even for small things also. That is what we are experiencing today.

    Thank you so much for sharing wonderful nectar.
