Radhanath Swami on Character

A person’s accomplishments induce respect and adoration from another person’s mind, but it doesn’t go beyond that. But a person’s character induces respect and love from other people’s hearts. – Radhanath Swami

A Good Leader

A good leader is hard like a thunderbolt and soft like a rose. One without the other does not work. If a leader is just soft like a rose, he cannot train anyone. If he is just hard like a thunderbolt, he will burn everyone out. – Radhanath Swami

Duties of a Leader

The future of any society depends on how the leaders make every possible plan to protect, sustain and enliven its members on every possible level. – Radhanath Swami

A Hypocrite Leader

To want to take a position and receive the honor of that position, but to not perform the sacrifice that is expected of that position is hypocrisy. – Radhanath Swami

Way to Love and Trust

There cannot be love without trust and there cannot be trust unless we take the responsibility to act in a way that people can trust us. – Radhanath Swami

Selfless Leadership

Taking responsibility of others means to be selfless. We have to put aside our own well being and desires as secondary and to think primarily of what is best for the persons who are looking up to us. – Radhanath Swami

Sphere of Influence

We are all leaders to one degree or another. We all have our sphere of influence and the greater the sphere of influence, the greater our responsibility. – Radhanath Swami
