Radhanath Swami compares God to a power house

1 God original powerhouse

“Whatever power we have…..from the ultimate source that current is flowing”- Radhanath Swami

God is like a power house, electrical powerhouse. And we are all like different light bulbs. There are 50 watt light bulbs, 100 watt light bulbs, 500 watt light bulbs, 1000 watt light; according to our gunas, according to our karmas, and according to our perseverance, we may be very small light bulbs or we may be very great light bulbs; you may be Ph. D scholar, Nobel laureate, or you may just know basic arithmetic.

But whatever power we have at any level, it is coming from janmaadyasya yathaha—from the ultimate source that current is flowing. And every living being in the human form of life has the independent free will to use that energy and channelize it according to their desire. We could channelize it motivated by greed, lust, envy, anger, pride and illusion; or we could channelize that same energy with compassion, with love, with concern for others and with devotion. But that energy that everyone has is coming from the original source, janmaadyasya yathaha.

Radhanath Swami

    At this point of time, we may not have or feel compassion towards others, but if with faith we serve the instructions of great devotees then we are acting in the right way – Thank you Radhanath Swami

    Wonderful article by HH Radhanath Swami Maharaj on spiritual Powerhouse.

  • Kalpana Kulkarni

    Wonderful analogy of the Power house and electric bulbs. It’s upto us to channelize that energy in the service of the Lord.

  • Raju K Mewada

    Radhanath Swami has explained such a great and deep matter, with a very simple example of bulb. Even though we know that the Lord is the source of all energy and knowledge. Ultimately we need to utilize all our intelligence and energy to serve the Lord and humanities to help to them to develop love for God. However in current era we find that people are just fitting for power and positions and also misuse their power. I firmly believe that a person with very high capabilities but without any character is no use for society. With wonderful teachings of the Radhanath Swami reminds me to utilize my energy in correct direction.

    Will KRSNA full fill my dreams and desire ,whatever my past is?

    • vijay

      You can only desire and try to fullfill it – but the end result will be based on many other factors. (like your freewill, social situations, bodily factors, your previous good and bad credits, gods interference etc)

      • San Sheel Mitha

        Actuallly,I wanted the answer from Radhanath Swami or his disciples!That would be more Appropriate.

          “Abandon all varieties of religion and just surrender unto Me. I shall deliver you from all sinful reactions. Do not fear.”- Lord Krishna (from Bhagavad Gita 18.66)

          • San Sheel Mitha

            Yeah thanks,its a powerfull one but is it applicable for material desires as it is for spiritual one.Confused?

          • James

            “A person who has broader intelligence, whether he be full of all material desire, without any material desire, or desiring liberation, must by all means worship the supreme whole, the Personality of Godhead.” (Srimad Bhagavatam 2.3.10)
