Development of our consciousness and our destiny depend on the values that we hold sacred in our lives.
- Radhanath Swami
Philosophy is like a product and culture is like the packaging. Without proper packaging the product will not be protected. Nor will it even look attractive.
Purification means bringing something back to its natural state. Just like pure water means there is no contamination in it.
Philosophy without proper behaviour is practically useless.
Real love means service devoted to the welfare of another person, even if the person is inimical towards us. That is the test of love.
Simplicity means without duplicity. A simple person has no ulterior motives. He speaks honestly & politely to encourage others.
– Radhanath Swami
The tragedy of the world is that generally people do not recognize how important and loved someone is until they die. Because we are so preoccupied and so distracted by so many so-called important things.
Unless one is happy within one’s own heart, one cannot be happy no matter what one acquires.
To have tremendous power and still be humble like a blade of grass. That is opulence.
