Radhanath Swami on The Real Love

Radhanath SwamiReal love is expressed through service. A mother is willing to do anything and everything to serve the child. She is willing to stay up late in the night, willing to clean all the mess that the child creates and willing to sacrifice her very life for the child. That is service.

  • Swapnil Gaonkar

    The love of God can be achieved only by service. Radhnath Swami has very nicely explained the importance of devotional service, with this example.

  • Mother’s love in the material world is the most closest to that of God’s. Maharaj has nicely explained by example what is selfless service.

  • Sujit Mehta

    Service – this is the underlying principle on which all relations sustain, yes love is needed but something needs to be done for a loved one mere words may sound impressive for some time, but without service the relation has no meaning, Radhanath Swamis quote through the example of a mother brings forth this aspect.
