    Many times life passes by – when we are waiting for the right moment to turn to God and Spirituality…before we realize its way too late…

    Even when we start a little disturbance and we are ready to drop/put it on hold while we take care of something “urgent”

    Radhanath Swami so eloquently mentioning here – what ever be the situation if are tuned in, we can not only just see, but be so enthused by this mercy that we celebrate…

    Oh! how blissful it would it be if every day, every hour, every sec of my life, I maintain this attitude !

  • Sumit Sharma

    This statement from Radhanath Swami gives so much solace to people who are undergoing lot of sufferings. Of course this world looks full of happiness, but if one digs out the reality, he will realized it’s not very true.

  • Ajay Chandak

    It is so evident at every stage of his “Journey Home”. Radhanath Swami had so much faith and dependence on the Lord and deep compassion and gratitude for everything he has gone through on his journey.


    If I could just realize this and act upon everymoment accordingly, I could make great progress. But unfortunate of me.

  • Chandrashekar

    Maharaja says that he got nothing in life easily so he is grateful for everything and for everyone

    Wonderful statement/quote by Radhanath Swami. Just this one statement itself is sufficient enough to meditate on and transform one’s live.

  • Dashrath Wasmatkar

    Whatever lessons Radhanath Swami shares from his wisdom, he practices it personally and then shares. This is so rare in this world. In his book “the Journey Home”, Radhanath Swami has thanked God always for teaching him a lesson for every incident of his travel from America to India and now also.

  • Dashrath Wasmatkar

    this quote of Radhanath Swami is really a very HOPE GIVING statement.Why hope giving statement because it is very easy to say thanks to god when is very nice according to our will, but when situation is not according to us or its a troublesome situation, we can understand that this situation is brought upon me by God’s Will. As God puts me in happy situations, he has put me in such situation and there is a blessing hidden behind it. Radhanath Swami’s quotes are thought provoking, and one really feels to act in that way. This statement of Radhanath Swami was really very nice.

  • Vikas Shinde

    Radhanath Swami says- A grateful heart is a happy heart.So through this quote he wants to teach us how to remain always happy.

  • Chandra Mouli

    Such a wonderful statement..

    I recollect one such incident from the life of Maharaj in his autobiography ‘The Journey Home’, Maharaj prays to God desperately when he sees so many so called spiritualists who in actuality are cheaters – “O my Lord, let my faith in you not get drifted away by those who are misrepresenting you”; CAN’T ASK FOR A BETTER PRAYER IN SUCH A SITUATION.
    There is every reason for Maharaj to leave his path of spirituality giving excuse of the cheaters that he came across but he never gave up but took such a situation also as an opportunity to come closer to God. Since he followed so high principles in his life, he could make a statement like the one above

  • Sumit

    Comments like this can only be made who are living by these principles. Radhanath Swami is great.

  • sita devi dasi

    I completely agree to that. Just like to make a beautiful embroidery the cloth has to be pierced with needles similarly to make aour life beautiful like an embroidery the lord has to use pins which are difficulties which actually beautify us.

  • Dashrath Wasmatkar

    Words spoken by Radhanath Swami are so strong that it gets imprinted in one’s heart, this is one of those statements, the more one reads it, the more one understands its potency.Comment made above by Chandramauli signifies that what a Bonafide Spiritual leader Radhanath Swami is. He practices what he preaches. Thank you Chandramauli for your comment that throws more light on Radhanath Swami’s Purity and Integrity in Character.

  • Renuka

    This quote will help us to cope up with the difficult situations that we face in our day to day life. It would be blissful, if we could maintain this attitute all through the day in our life.

  • Sagarika

    Very True said by Radhanath Swami – situations keep changing but our attitude towards i.e. o be greatful to Krishna and take it as His mercy is what matters. That will enable us to face any situations in kali-yuga. Thank you.

    Only a self-realized and surrendered soul can truly experience and feel this way. Indeed Radhanath Swami Maharaj is one of them, without a doubt. Though we understand the truth of the statement, remembering and living by the statement is so difficult for conditioned souls like me.

  • Pradeep

    Thank you very much Radhanath Swami Maharaj for reminding us how we can be greatful to God in every circumstances of life.

  • Nandkishor Wani

    Truly, Radhanath Swami’s teachings helps me in all situations, gives new dimensions of understanding and realizes gods hand in all situations. God will never puts us in condition in which we will fail but He will always puts in test that we will pass by showing our endevour to do it and being greatful to god. Radhanath Swami ki jai.

  • Mukesh Oza

    Very True

  • http://google priya aiyar

    A grateful heart can appreciate Lord’s plans. He only showers mercy on us for our advancement in spiritual life. But we need Guru Maharaj’s mercy in taking us ahead and making us realize this truth.

  • Rahul Kumar Sevakula

    I have heard lectures of Radhanath Swami and he repeats this message of gratitude many times. He regularly speaks about the Srimad Bhagavatam sloka- tat te anukampam su sumikshu mana…..
    I have read his autobiography and we can see that though he underwent through so many difficult circumstances, he was grateful to Lord. This is way he has shown very high level of integrity. Thank you very much Radhanath Swami.

  • Rajesh Talwar

    Engaged in our material pursuits, we can hardly appreciate this. But it takes someone like Radhanath Swami to demonstrate that every adversity in life is the will of the Lord and one must learn to acknowledge and accept this. A humble heart is a fertile heart.

  • Arjun K Ramachandra

    This understanding is indispensable in the life of a devotee as he must learn to see every situation as being specifically arranged by the lord for bringing us closer to him. Radhanath Swami is a master in practicing and exemplifying this exalted principle and most importantly helping other people come closer in their relationship with god.

  • Priya

    We are dejected & confused during trying circumstances. But when understood as the mercy of God from the teachings of sadhus as Radhanath Swami, such circumstances become benedictions.
