Being a victim of circumstances. That’s just the nature of the world we live in.
- Radhanath Swami
True enough. This material world is like a vast ocean and we are tiny fishes in its waters. What power do we have to resist its power. Krsna says, “My material enrgy is very powerful, difficult to overcome. One who surrenders to me alone can cross over it.” Krsna is the only shelter if we want to save ourselves from being tossed over by the waves of material nature. Material world is being conducted by three modes of nature which are like very strong ropes tied to us. As they pull us, we can not do anything but get pulled in that direction. Krsna is the only hope.
Surrender to Krishna and come out of this vicious circle……this is what Maharaj is pleading everyone of us..
Very sensitive, very profound. We all face this. Is nt it?
Nice thing is Radhanath Swami states problem and also solution.
H.H.Radhanath Swami’s words are so real
Dukhalayam asasvatham – perfectly designed to reform all conditioned souls. Thanks a lot Maharaj for this insightful quote.
Radhanath Swami in one of his lecture was talking about Queen Kunti the spirit in which she handled calamities, infact she prays for more bcoz thats the time we can take complete shelter of the Supreme Lord.
Everyone of us suffers in this world because of the circumstances and Maharaj has aptly given the reason for this.. Amazing and Simple..
this is really true . but one need to come out of this zone by taking the strength from guru tattva. i pray to maharaj to give me that strength to live to the principles.
its true this wolrd is a very uncertain place.
Wonderful and inpiring quote from Radhanath Swami. It simply touches our hearts.
Maharaj talks about Citraketu maharaj and his wives:Firstly, co-wives were envious of other wife who gave birth to Hashshoka and why? because citraketu maharaj overwhelmed by bliss of getting a son neglects other wives. Both were victims of their circumstances and therefore, lost sense of their duties and proper behaviour.
Thank you for this quote.
Very true! We are all victim of circumstances!
Very true. We all have faced it.
