Radhanath Swami on Why We Worry

Why do people worry? There are numberless reasons within the world that we live. We may be worried about our health, about our wealth, about our loved ones, or our friends. We may be worried about our yesterday, today, or tomorrow. We may be worried about the environment, the situation in the world in politics. The nature of this world is birth, old age, disease, and death. The nature of this world is – everything is always changing, and essentially the biggest problem is – we want to control our environment.

And eternal reality is – you and me, we are not the controllers, things can go their own way. We can try our best; to some degree we have influence.

But ultimately things are out of our control. So, to the degree we are attached to anything or anyone on this worldly platform there would be worries. Attachment brings worry.

  2. It will be great to lead a worry-free life. How I long for it. Trying to give up attachments to temporary things sounds like a logical idea. Radhanath Swami also provides the eternal thing to get attached to - God!

  8. Attachment brings worry - this is such a true statement. I have met people who are not attached and have no worries, and I have met the other type too.

  9. What a nice and sublime way of explaining and also understanding of the problems of our day to day scenario.By being attached to the all positive energy of God, we become relieved of all the negative influence of this big big problem called WORRYING.

  11. Very sound definition of worry from Rahdanath Swami. As long as we connect ourselves with various things in the material world (without Lord in picture), there would always be worry and this is the way this world has been designed.

  12. Attachment brings worries so true, still we are attached. With the help of Radhanath Maharaj who guides us through this beautiful path of devotion, attachment to devotional service has increased which has reduced anxiety. Thanks Maharaj.

    Attachments - the root cause of worries.
    Thanks for pointing out Maharaj - stop trying to control over the things that are out of our control and stop being attached to things and people that are temporary

    Witnessing the recent serial bomb blasts in Mumbai, this is very apt. Fear has gripped us once again and this fear is due to attachment to the impermanent and due to the ignorance of what real attachment means. Thank you Radhanath Swami for enlightening us on how to get attached to the permanent.
