Radhanath Swami on Seeing Through the Eyes of Scriptures

What we may witness in the world, we must learn to process that information through the knowledge we have read in the holy scriptures and the knowledge we have heard from the great saintly people. Therefore, any national or international events that occur, anything that happens in the lives of those around us, and anything that happens in our own lives, we try to interpret them in such a way that it gives us real understanding and realizations. And that will help us in coming closer to God. This is how we should always be absorbed and this absorption brings real fulfillment and excitement to life.

So it is said that a learned person does not see through his/her eyes but sees with his/her ears.

  5. Our senses are imperfect & limited. So as Radhanath Swami has rightly pointed out, we need to depend on the scriptures & the wisdom of the saintly people to find solace & strength to survive in today's dog-eat-dog civilisation. Stay strong & keep the faith alive!

  10. This is a wonderful point ... seeing with ears. And this is so true as well. Often we believe on things that we can't see with our eyes... like the axioms in science... they can't be seen but we believe on faith. Same way the best place to invest our faith is Vedas. Thank you Radhanath Swami.

  20. What mind knows the eyes can see that. So if we have not heard from the authority, the sight remains just a visual impression without proper impact. But when we hear and then see the things in right perspective then we can make the best of it. Swamiji has put this fact very nicely in simple words that one should see thru' ears...amazing...Tx a lot.

    This is a very nice post...it is very easy to believe what we see...externally a person might appear to be a great spiritual teacher, but might not be following the words of the scriptures in his own life. We cannot trust the judgement of our eyes, rather we must hear what they have to say, if it is in conjunction with the scriptures. Thank you, Radhanath Swami.

  26. i guess such an attempt of connecting the hustle-bustle around us with the tattva also helps us realise more, convinced more, increase our faith more and thereby be situated on the transcendental platform...
