Radhanath Swami on Consciousness

radhanathWe should be in harmony with our own consciousness; our mind, body, and soul should be one in interest and in purpose. And in that unified condition, we can actually express that natural innate love that we have found in our own life in everything we do in the world.

Radhanath Swami On Unity

radhanath“If our mind is in conflict, not balanced with our body and with the needs of the soul, then there is a fundamental disunity in our life. Only if we have unity within ourselves, we can create unity in the world around us. You can’t give something you don’t have, even if you have all good intentions”

- Radhanath Swami

Radhanath Swami on The Love of God

Radhanath Swami on The Love of GodGod wants to give all of his love to us, and all he wants in return is whatever little love a soul has. We just offer that love to him and all the love he has, as the Supreme Lord, he is willing to give us that in return.

Radhanath Swami on Perceiving Through Mind

Radhanath Swami on Perceiving Through Mind When the mind is turbulent, uncontrolled and restless, it is like a pond of water that is filled with mud. Therefore when we look within ourselves, all we perceive is the mud of our material conceptions of life. But when the mind is still through discipline, and through yoga, it is like a pond that has no waves and no turbulence. Then we can perceive through that crystal clear water the eternal nature of our soul.
