Radhanath Swami on A Divine Society

Today there are so many social events - people come to hear materialistic music together, people come to dance together, people come to drink together, to eat together, to go to the cinemas, to go to the concerts, to go to the sporting events. People are so foolish that they do not take out time to regularly associate with the saintly people and to hear and chant the glories of the Lord. But the real purpose of the society is to give people opportunity to come together to hear the glories of the Lord, to chant and dance for the glorification of the names of the God and to take the holy food offered to the Lord together. And to the degree this is missing from our society, to the same degree there will be terrible sufferings in this world.

  15. Radhanath Swami has very aptly described the reason for the malaise that confronts the modern society today, which is complete absorption in material sense gratification - individually & collectively. This is indeed the main cause for the utter degradation of our human civilization.
