Radhanath Swami on The Greatest Act of Compassion

The greatest act of compassion a person can do in this world is to be a good example for others to follow. Be an example of humility, selfless dedication, self-control, devotion and integrity. Integrity means to be honest, to be truthful and to make great sacrifices whoever we are for the welfare of others. Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, teaches that everyone can do that and in doing that we can actually express our intent to love God. Simply by that intent, the Lord reciprocates and gradually awakens that love within our heart.

    If we see any genuine leader's life, we can observe that they all "Walked their Talk". They were themselves shining examples of what they taught. Thank you Radhanath Swami Maharaj for reminding of this truth of life.
