Radhanath Swami On ‘Forgetfulness of Love of Godhead’

47 forgetfullness Love for godhead

“Love of God is dormant in everyone’s heart, but we have forgotten it. All problems and conflicts in the world are due to this forgetfulness.” – Radhanath Swami

Our minds and senses have become so externalized that the treasure of love for/of God within our hearts has been forgotten.

If we forget something that we have, it is as good as not having it. If we have millions of rupees in our bank account but have forgotten about it, then it is as good as not having it with the result that we might have to sleep on streets like poor people although that money belongs to us.

However, there’s a way to overcome such forgetfulness of our love for/of God. By associating with holy people, by chanting God’s name, by living a humble and grateful life, our love for God is re-awakened in our hearts. When this love for God re-awakens in our hearts, then the quality of compassion awakens and we want to share that love of God with others. Compassion is the natural by-product of love for/ of God.

– Radhanath Swami

    This is very interesting article. Forgetfulness is the cause of everything. This is the reason people condemn or criticize the God. If our society develops as God centric, then where is the question of discrimination or hatred for others.

    Radhanath Swami’s thoughts on this subject is an eye opener. Most of us think that Love of God is a gift to only a chosen few and it is absolutely okay if most of us do our family and professional duties properly. Only the people in the renounced order of life need to perform activities regarding spiritual matters.
