Radhanath Swami on Service Attitude

Radhanath SwamiTelling people of some wonderful service that we have done in a boastful way, nullifies the credit of the service. May not be on the eternal platform, but in our conscious condition we won’t be able to reap the real benefits of that service.

    Pride spoils the credits of service.

  • Manish Parmar

    Humility is one of the basic pillars of onself.

  • http://radhanathswamiquotes.com Meera Sharma

    Very important quote in the life of devotee. We should perform any service with the desire to please the Lord and His devotees, and not to please our ego. Service attitude is so crucial. Maharajah pointed out so nicely, once we boast about our service, it affects our consciousness and we don’t receive any benefit from that service.

  • Y.Raja Shekar

    Radhanath Swami, with this quote clearly differentiates the nature of material world with that of pure spiritual nature. It is becuse of the mercy of pure devotees like Radhanath Swami we are able to render some service as instruments in the hands of God. And as such nothing happens in our life without the intervention and blessings of pure devotees like Radhanath Swami. All the credit to Radhanath Swami for keeping us always remember this important aspect in our devotional life.

  • Manish Chadha

    When we hear a someone speaking with pride about his/her acheivements, we tend to turn off. Similarly, as pointed by Radhanath Swami, when we boast about our service with pride, it must be putting others off too (including the divine)

    This amazing advice challenges the process that the rest of the world follows. Usually, the louder one boasts, the more one “benefits:” fame, fortune, only to end up with entanglement and suffering. Please, let me obtain the ability to overcome this ego.

    Boasting is actually feeding our false ego. One of the subtle senses is false ego, and unless this is controlled, it is very difficult to make any spiritual advancement or to chant purely. Thank you Maharaj for this wonderful instruction.

  • Tushar Gaikwad
