    Maharaj is so nicely teaching us by this excellent quote. Very difficult to practice though but it is not impossble. One can definitely practice this if taken sincerely.

  • nisha

    such a great realization!

  • Jagdish Majethiya

    Awesome Quote – as soon as we feel ourselves qualified, we become disqualified. Thank you so much Maharaj for this.

  • Siddharth Hindlekar

    Wonderful…this is very true. Its a good quote that we can always contemplate on whenever we feel proud of our so called “acheivements” in life

  • Ashwani

    Such a deep and profound fact. Thank you Radhanath Swami Maharaj.

  • Sunil

  • pranav gore

    Good lesson for me

    Feeling qualified nullifies our dependence on the Lord, thank you Maharaj for revealing such a meaningful quote for reviving our dependence on the Lord.

  • Tushar Gaikwad

    Radhanath swami can detect pride even in minutest form…

  • Sanath Shetty

    This is a very deep realization coming from all great acharyas of the past who have deeply connected with God. Seeing how everything we posses comes from Him – knowledge, intelligence, all our abilities/expertise, opulences etc. We may sinc…erely work for it to show our desire to posses it, however its finally given/sanctioned by the Lord.
    Anyone great in this world in any area can be reduced to a vegetable by just a stroke! We really dont posses anything to be proud off…

  • Swapnil Gaonkar

  • seema

    We need to forego our ego and let humility take its place.

  • Anita Iyer

    Radhanath Swami has identified our greatest problem – we can’t surrender because we feel ourselves qualified. Without being humble, we can’t seriously accept the good instructions given to us by our authorities.

  • Thank you for this important instruction.

  • CS Sandeep Shinde

    Very powerful quote. Thank you very much for sharing the same.

    What a quote from Radhanath Swami, which shows how valuable is humility.

  • Y.Raja Shekar

    This quote of Radhanath Swami makes us humble. Eventhough Radhanath Swami is a much elevated and pure devotee of Lord, He always behaved in an exemplary manner to feel humble servant of Lord. Truly, we all should aspire to become His servants of servants of servants.

  • Siddeshwar Bhat

    That’s really deeeeeeeeeep!

  • bipin

    All Glories To.H.H.Radhanath Swami Maharaj

    Haribol. What a beautiful quote.

    Hare Krishna

  • Arsh Khanna

    Thank you Maharaj for teaching us art of humilty in such short words.

  • Jai!! This quote reminds of great acaryas like Krsna das kaviraj goswami, Narottam das Thakur, Bhakti Vinod Thakur. Despite being pure devotees they genuinely think so lowly of themselves. And we think that we have any qualifications!!

  • Samir Paleja

    Fantastic quote

  • Yudhisthira

    Oooooh! This one by Radhanath Swami tears across my egoistic fabric. But Radhanath Swami is forthright and is talking the truth out here

  • Ranjeet Kumar

    We have to contemplate over it again and again.

  • kumar

    Wonderful quote!

    Ironic, but very fundamental truth of spiritual life.

  • Gautam

    Amazing realisation..

  • Manish Parmar

    Maharaj exemplifies humility.

  • Nancy

    Amazing quote!

  • Ram Mohan Gupta

    The statement of Radhanath Swami Maharaj is very true. We have no qualification, it’s only by the mercy of Guru and Krishna that we can be used in some way.

  • mona

    V True thank U Maharaj.

  • vinay rachh

    One of the reason we feel we are qualified is because of our ego

  • shirish

    Yes..Yes…. this is my weakness ..Thank you Radhanath swami maharajfor quoting in a simple way.

  • Uday

    Our pride makes us believe we are qualified and in spirituality there is no place for ride and ego.Radhanath Swami’s quotes are gems.

  • N Swaminathan

    When we become heavy headed due to arrogance then our qualifications become burdens and we become closed to learning anything better. Many more such corollaries are residing in this beautiful quote from Radhanath Swami Maharaj

  • Hrishikesh Mafatlal

    By thinking that we are something big, means that we minimise the presence of God in our lives.

  • Kaushik

    This is indeed a realised statement by Radhanath Swami. He practices this and therefore his statements have a transforming effect on millions. Thanks for sharing the wonderful quote

  • Very true. Thank you Radhanath Swami.

  • Sujit Mehta

    It is not uncommon to come across this sort of a phenomenon daily, there is no dearth of persons who are qualified to different degrees which is good for maintaining a lifestyle, however do most people bother to check and work upon qualification for ‘Going Back, Back Home To Godhead. Radhanath Swami’s simple quotes direct us towards what is of ultimate importance in the final analysis.

  • Great! This is not self pity, but humility that comes with the knowledge that all our “qualification” comes from God, without which we are utterly helpless.

  • CS Sandeep Shinde

    Very nice.

  • Radhanath Swami has made a statement out of his realization. He is natually humble and is sharing his realizations based on the science of imbibing humility.

  • Sagar Wadekar

    Its difficult to understand in first reading but Maharaj speaks very deep.. amazing.. thanks.. JAI !!!

  • Vinay Malani

    Humility is one of the hallmark qualities of a bonafide spiritual master. Therefore, according to Radhanath Swami, a person should consider himself least qualified in order to receive God’s unlimited mercy & blessings.

  • Radhanath Swami Maharaj is himself so humble…..

  • nandkishor wani

    thank you Radhanath swami for making us humble.

  • Manish Chadha

    Feeling qualified not only makes one draw a huge curtain between himself and divinity, which is way beyond any sort of qualifications of a mortal; but it also leads to have expectations which inevitably leads to frustrations.
    Personally, i really need to enforce and practise this golden principle of no expectations and gratitude for anything and everything.
    Thank you Radhanath Swami.

  • Shra1wiz

    Oh, when will I ever understand and put this into practice???

  • Rajesh Lad

    Awesome !

  • Tushar Gaikwad

    Radhanath swami has always been focussing on humility. pride destroys all the advancement done on spiritual path

  • Manish Raikundalia

    Nice quote!!

  • Manasa

    Thank you Maharaj for telling it is only by the mercy of the Lord anything we get not that we are qualified to that.

  • Deepak

    That remind we should always remember our qualification that we don’t have any qualification, it is all through the grace of vaishnavas & Guru Maharaj.

  • Jayshree Shinde

    Radhanath Swami ki Jai

  • When we feel qualified for any thing, it means have we already made up our mind the outcome the way we feel justified. This will be our biggest disqualification, because even a blade of grass does not move without God’s will.

  • Sunita Paleja

    very deep statement

  • Y.Raja Shekar

    Nice quote by Radhanath Swami. As Radhanath Swami says as long as we are in the bodily conception of life we keep purself infront and feel more qualified. Else where Radhanath swami quotes “Surrender means to put our wants last”.
