Radhanath Swami on The Greatest Strength on Earth


What is the greatest strength on earth? United we stand, Divided we fall. Our strength is in our unity, not only
as nations, not only as races, not only as families, but even within religion.  The greater the service we can do to society, the larger we expand this principle of compassion. There is nationalism, then there is humanitarianism. These are for all human beings, but they are limited too. The greatest compassion is compassion for every living being, even for the animals, the fish, the birds, the trees and the plants. We are all part of God. We can show our love for God by how we respect, how we serve, how we honor, and how we love each other. The greatest necessity is to create a very, very deep form of real unity and that unity, the unity of inner compassion born of unity between the soul and God, is the greatest strength on Earth.

  5. We very rarely think at this level, but this is so true. Unity that is all encompassing compassion for all entitites, is rarely seen. Thank you Swamiji.

  9. Real unity means even respecting animals and showing compassion to them, this is higher than nay other type of unity like nationalism, humanity which are focused on narrow human race.
