Radhanath Swami on The Manual for Life

Scriptures are the guides of how to live in this world perfectly. They are enunciated by the creator. If we want to learn how to utilize a machine properly, especially if the machine is quite complex, we must learn from the manufacturer. If we buy a highly sophisticated computer system, the manufacturer does not give it to us in a box and say, now you figure out how to use it. Will any one buy such a computer? There is a very sophisticated detailed owner’s manual that is included. Any expensive piece of machinery we buy, on the front page of the owner’s manual, it will say do not even attempt to use it without thoroughly reading this manual. So the scripture is the word of God. The Lord Himself is the only one qualified to install religion within this world. And the saintly person is one whose every word act is an illustration of the conclusion of this scripture. The qualification of a saintly person has nothing to do with performing magical tricks or juggling words. The real sadhu is one who simply, humbly, repeats the word of God without change and lives accordingly.

    Radhanath Swami makes a brilliant point here : A sadhu is not one who performs magic or juggles words but one who lives simply, humbly repeating the word of god as it is and living by his scriptures.

  10. The scriptures are the words of God,the manufacturer of this world.Yes without referring to those words under bonafide guidance, transcending this temporary material world is next to impossible.It is good for us to take shelter of saintly persons like Radhanath Swami.
