  • Sudhir

    HH Radhanath Swami Maharaj ki jay!!

  • Shoba Ramachandran

    Surrender – Explanation is short and simple like sutras yet profound

  • Its so refreshing to again come across genuine devotees of God like Radhanath Swami. In recent times, I have mostly come across saints who dont talk too much about God, but more about “peace of mind” and similar things. While others focus on individual and social well-being, Radhanath Swami focuses on our eternal relationship with God which alone can bring about real well-being. He is a real saint. How can one be a saint without being a completely dedicated devotee of God?

  • gautuam daswani

    Radhanath Swami is a true example of ‘surrender’.

  • Sunny

    Such a beautiful and practical definition of surrender. In every thought, every word and every act has to be evaluated on this principle – this helps a spiritualist check how far one has travelled on this path.

    We have to take guidance from the likes of Radhanath Swami if we have to succeed on this path, else our mind and senses so expertly cheat us that we end up doing mundane activities under the label of spiritual!

  • Shreekanth

I beg and pray at the lotus feet of His Holiness Radhanath Swami maharaj to please empower me to be able to give up whimsical misuse of my free will and endeavor to surrender to the will of His Holiness Radhanath Swami and lord Krishna.

  • hrishikesh mafatlal

    In the material world where I interact daily, ‘surrender’ has a very derogatory and negative feeling—it is considered shameful to “bow” to someone superior. Here we have an extraordinary and simple definition which goes counter to the wrong views of the world at large. God is Supreme, and His Will will prevail.
