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.

    Hmm! What’s in our heart when we do something, only I know? Think Think Think, Radhanath Swamis thought provoking quotes are the order of the day.

  • Ram Mohan Gupta

    Heavy statement by Radhanath Swami Maharaj. It’s not easy to follow in conditioned state. We need lot of mercy to be able to follow it.

    What a quote! Being boastful and proud even of spiritual activities nullifies the immediate positive effect of them on our consciousness. Pride cometh before the fall, or as someone said, pride is itself the fall, rest are all details.

  • rajesh jogani

  • Rakesh Chandra

    Maharhaj speaking the truth and reminding us to away from this tendency.

    Very true..when we are proud of our services…the service loses its meaning all together.Real humility is what we need to imbibe from Maharaj

  • Sagar Wadekar

    its really difficult to follow in today’s world because “to sell yourself you need to boast about what u have done”.. Maharaj is giving us the right way of getting maximum benefits, that is, to forget what good you have done to others.. JAI !!!

  • Vishnupriya

    its really difficult to not talk about a service that i have done… but if i read such quotes everyday, hopefully someday it will not be tough

  • pranav gore

    PAMHO. Maharaj telling something which is very common in many people, and which stop one to get total benefit out of it.

  • vinay rachh

    very nice quote

  • http://ankurradhanathswami.blogspot.com/ ankur sharma

    Maharaj at other place says that prestige, adoration and position are all meant for Krsna. By being boastful of our services we want to gain credit which is also meant for Krsna. So this is a symptom of envy of God.

  • R.sundar

    Thank yu verymuch Radhanath Swamy maharaj for this wonderful quote

  • Anita Iyer

    Thank you for this wonderful instruction. It’s a very difficult task to stop ourselves from boasting about something wonderful we’ve done, while ignoring 10 other things that we did wrong. The tendency is to take all credit for wonderful things and blame others for what goes wrong.

  • Ankush

    I must keep this in mind before i boast next time ….

  • Balaji

    Thank you Maharaj, for such nice explanation. When ever there is some expectaion, then we can not get the real bebefit of the service done
