Radhanath Swami on Transforming Perceptions

The home is meant to be an ashram - a place to cultivate spiritual purification. It’s a place to cultivate love of God so when we hear about the Lord, when we read the holy scriptures, when we chant the holy names of the Lord, when we associate with spiritually minded people - all these transform our perception. We begin to see everything in terms of our spiritual reality. Even as business people, we may be doing exactly the same thing as some other business person who is motivated by greed, but with a different vision because of how we have cultivated our heart.

  2. Radhanath Swami has stated how we can make our home into temples. And then we dont need to visit temples rather we can achieve the same benefit by worshipping at home.

  6. Truly perception of a situation or thing makes all the difference.As the well-known phrase goes, "A person can see the glass half full or half empty"

  25. The impressions that we gain in the course of our life makes our perceptions.Hence if we cultivate ourselves with positive impressions we will see things as they are!
