Radhanath Swami on The Need for Saints

There’s a need for accountants, there’s a need for lawyers, there’s a need for doctors, there’s a need for housewives and fathers, there’s a need for teachers, there’s a need for policemen, there’s a need for soldiers, there’s a need for farmers, there’s a need for architects, there’s a need for all the various occupations. There’s also a need for saints, somewhere. The purpose of saints is to teach society how to utilize their talents, their gifts and their particular positions in such a way that they will be liberated rather than entangled, and that they can do great benefit for the world rather than just add to the karma of the world.

  1. Just like we need managers and also leaders - we need experts to do the work, but also Swamis such as Radhanath Swami to guide and tell what work to do with what consciousness.

  3. A very valid and logical point from Radhanath Swami. There is certainly a need of saints considering the pathetic situation of the world today. Unfortunately many don't realize this simple common sense thing.

  4. This was amazing reply given by Maharaj in one College in Mumbai. World is really in need of saintly people more than these doctors, engineers and accountants.

  7. the world can live without others professions lawyer or an architect etc with some difficulties...however without saintly people we cannot even live...our greed/lust/illusion/envy will cause us to simply destroy each other...

  8. All Glories To H.H Radhanath Swami Maharaj

    How wonderful is this thought and equally logical though philosophical. Someone may contend the presence of saints but rather they are more important than any other occupation that the society may need today.

    Hare Krishna.

  11. Thank you Radhanth Swami Maharaj for so nicely explaining "Need for Saints" - The purpose of saints is to teach society how to utilize their talents, their gifts and their particular positions in such a way that they will be liberated rather than entangled, and that they can do great benefit for the world rather than just add to the karma of the world.

  15. this is a wonderful comment. Indeed the need of saints is much more in these days than earlier, we think the need of IT employees is more but indeed India has to wake up taking the message of Radhanath Swami to become themselves true saints and make others also
