Radhanath Swami on illusion

There is one Supreme Eternal Being, Krsna, and there are innumerable living beings, the jivas. The jivas are always eternally dependent on the mercy of Krsna, it is our constitutional position. And knowledge means to always remember that and act with that understanding. And the source of all ignorance is to forget that principle and act according to that forgetfulness. So the liberated soul is the person who never forgets that I am the humble dependent servant of Krsna. And the conditioned soul forgets, thinks I am the doer, I am the controller, I am the enjoyer, by my strength, by my intelligence, by my wealth and influence, I will find the real solution to my sufferings impossible ! This is illusion!!.

Radhanath Swami on pride



To be proud of one’s sinless ness in front of God is also sin. Knowledge means to know that I am helpless in this world and only the power of God can save me.


Inability to find faults in ourselves is a sign of pride, and it is a wall between God and us. Desire to enjoy separate from Krishna is Ravana (kama)


– H.H.Radhanath Swami


Radhanath Swami quote


Surrendering our heart is surrendring our false ego. Krishna is the source of all gratefulness (gratitude) for his devotees

Purification of heart is as much as putting Krishna in the center and keeping our egoistic concern aside. Only a grateful heart can cultivate bhakti

A Request for Prayer

Janardhana Lila pr., a disciple of H.H. Radhanath Swami, has recently been diagnosed with lymphocytic leukemia (Blood Cancer) and will be starting the most painful chemotherapy treatment from tommorow. Currently the Dr’s are giving him a 50% chance to recover from this life taking disease.

He (37 yrs), along with his wife and 2 children are full time resident devotees of the Govardhan Farm community in Wada, Thane. (Mumbai)In the recent past, the miraculous recovery of H.H. Jayapataka Swami was only possible by the intense prayers of devotees all over the world.

Devotees from Sri Sri Radha Gopinath Mandir have most humbly requested all of us to sincerely pray that Janardhan lila pr. and his family can pass through this most difficult and testing phase of their lifes, and continue their selfless services at the Lotus feet of Guru and Gauranga.
