Radhanath Swami on Truth for the Truth Seekers

The culture of India is most famous throughout the world for the saintly persons who have been born in India. This is the glory of India - the saints. People do not come to India for economic purposes. Millions of Indians go to the west because they want money, but westerners come to India because they want to meet the sadhus (saintly persons). They want spiritual knowledge. Our spiritual knowledge depends on how much we are willing to humble ourselves and hear from saintly persons, because with our own senses we never understand the truth. We must read the scriptures regularly, and we must read them under the guidance of self-realized souls. This process is an austerity and sacrifice. By regularly hearing the message of God from the scriptures and by regularly serving those persons who are living those teachings and by regularly hearing from them, all the impurities in our heart are eradicated. And then, truth shines like the sun and the moon within our own heart.

  11. This has so much meaning to our life. But unfortunately people in India are trying to follow the Western culture, keeping their values aside. Lets all try to think over the massage above and see how we can stay so peacefully and harmoniously.
