Radhanath Swami on Sincerity of Endeavor

As devotees, we should perform all physical and verbal acts for the purpose of pleasing the spiritual master and the Lord. Ultimately, it’s our attitude that pleases the Lord and attracts His mercy. We may chant the holy names and make it look to others that we are chanting very sincerely; but our advancement does not depend on how others see us. Our advancement depends on how the Lord sees us within our heart. The Lord sees our motivation, our aspiration, and our sincerity of endeavor.

  1. We often get caught in impressing others. Radhanath Swami Maharaj is addressing that tendency. It is not how others see us but what is within our heart that is important.
