Radhanath Swami on Creating Unity

There is an inner disunity within all of our hearts. The mind is the battlefield. The dualities of life are always competing with one another. From the spiritual platform, while working in this world to do good, we must simultaneously actually realize the art of love, the art of yoga, to be united body, mind, and soul, and soul with God. And then whether we are business people or students or industrialists or architects or teachers or farmers or politicians, or soldiers, whatever we may be, we express that inner knowledge, that inner love, that inner compassion in everything we do. Is there anything that is greater needed in the world than that mentality within human beings? Technology is good provided it’s in the right hands. If it’s in the wrong hands, knowledge and technology could be the most destructive force on earth, and if it’s in the right hands, it can do so much good for so many people. So just creating people who can earn, just creating people who can invent, that’s not going to help the world in itself unless people become holistic, unless people become united with their own inner spiritual nature and act with dynamic compassion in this world on that basis.

    Very deep and thoughtful statement by Radhanath Swami here - unless people become holistic and united with their inner spiritual nature, we can't do much good to this world.

  6. "From the spiritual platform, while working in this world to do good, we must simultaneously actually realize the art of love, the art of yoga, to be united body, mind, and soul, and soul with God"-so important is it to have inner unity first before it can be expressed.

  7. Very rightly explained about the real unity, we can clearly see in this world people try to unite on the basis of body i.e cast, color, race, state, community, country but does it bring real unity, harmony & peace in society ? no, we see more & more disunity due to this principal. But Swami have nicely explained here how a real unity can be brought with self & God and then to the entire living entities not only limited to humanity. Unless there is universal fatherhood it is very difficult to have universal brotherhood. Thanks a lot for sharing this blog.

  8. It is very nicely explained by Maharaj that without the inner spiritual unity,generating the men who can earn,or invent...etc cannot help the world. So we need to develop the Spiritual Unity first. Very Wonderful. I thank from my heart for this blog.

  10. Thank you Maharaj for raising this valuable point on how unless people become united with their own inner spiritual nature there will not be any real unity.
