Radhanath Swami on Uniting for a Higher Principle

It is very important to unite for a higher principle. It’s a great challenge because it’s the age where the predominating influence is quarrel and hypocrisy. We see these two qualities so widespread everywhere and the tendency to quarrel over insignificant issues. The nature of the mind is to make insignificant things seems so important. Things that are practically meaningless we interpret it as very meaningful. Fights, arguments, divorce and wars are based over trifling things that are interpreted to be so important. As long as we don’t focus our consciousness on higher principles, they are important, at least they seems to be important. If there is a little hill in front of your house and that’s all you have ever seen, it seems gigantic. But if you look at the Himalayan mountains, then that little hill is insignificant because you have seen something greater. God is great, devotion is great and if we have some connection to that, some experience with that, then these little things lose their significance.

  2. 'United We Stand, Divided We Fall'. That is why Radhanath Swami is laying emphasis on ignoring our trivial differences & uniting for the common cause of spreading God-consciousness among the general masses.

  14. These teachings are so important for us to realise and follow. Yesterday's Bomb blasts in Mumbai ... would such things ever happen if we follow the teachings mentioned here ?
