Radhanath Swami on Believing the Scriptures

People of this world are so much conditioned to the news of the radio, the television and the newspapers where everything is based on the relative activities of conditioned souls and therefore we have a certain conditioned idea of what is possible and what is not possible. When we read history books about various wars and various discoveries and various political revolutions, they are all done by people who are influenced by material nature. Therefore what can such infinitesimal conditioned beings do that is very great? And if they do something little greater than somebody else, then it is considered wonderful. And then everyone must read about it, see it, and talk about it. But the holy scriptures are something completely different. They describe the activities of the Supreme Absolute Truth that has no limitation who is all-knowing and completely independent. There is nothing impossible for God. If there was anything impossible for God, there would be no such thing as God, because God by definition means The Complete Whole, The Supreme Controller. Therefore it is not difficult for us to have faith in any story that comes in the authoritative literatures such as Srimad Bhagvatam.

    Unlike modern scientific world which dismissed the scriptural evidences as mythology, Radhanath Swami clearly shows us the path of reasonable faith in the Vedic scriptures which are the words of God.
