Radhanath Swami – Reason for suffering

Everyone tries to claim as their own what belongs to God. Therefore, there is so much misery and suffering. Because trying to claim somebody else’s property as our own is sinful. It creates bad karma. When people take something they are not supposed to take, they become attached to it; they become addicted to it and so passionate for it that they cannot live without it. They commit so many sins to keep it or to get it. And that is why there is so much crime and violence.

  • Sunny

    Very insightful article by Radhanath Swami: In this world everything is given by Lord – all natural resources including the human brain (its not made in any IIT) – however whatever wealth is acheived using this is claimed by people to be theirs – without acknowledging God and not using in service of God! They want to engage it in their selfish purposes! Like one corrupt Prime Ministers wife had 6000+ pairs of shoes!

    Then there are others who want to steal from them and engage in their selfish purpose – creates an atmosphere where everyone is threatened for existence by another!

    Violence, crime, sinful activities – are only natural in such situation

    The only reason for our suffering in this world is our tendency to enjoy god’s property and claiming it as our own.

  • Y.Raja Shekar

    Radhanath Swami has constantly preached this point that Lord is the ultimate Propriter, Enjoyer and Controller of every thing and that the suffering is due to forgetfulness of this and due to our propensity to become the owners of what we survey. Radhanath Swami also teach all of us by his own personal example, how to use every thing in the service of God.
