Radhanath Swami – Hope in Chaos

Radhanath Swami on Hope in chaos

Politicians want to try to make adjustments to change the chaotic condition of society but the most what they can do is suppress it for some time.  And while it’s being suppressed, it appears that things are a little peaceful.  But in the process of suppressing, the disease is getting more terrible from within, and it is just a matter of time till the symptoms come out worse.

A spiritualist understanding this knows that there is only one hope and relief, and that is God, Krishna. Therefore, a devotee is always seeking shelter of Krishna, and never the shelter of the temporary adjustments and arrangements of this world. We may have to do the needful to make adjustments in this world but a devotee puts no faith in them, because they are temporary. We put hundred percent of our faith only in God, Krishna. The night is dark, we cannot change that. But in the darkness of the night, there is also a full moon, which gives light to the world – the hope and relief-giving moon of God that rises in our hearts.

    Very Nice! A true spiritualist always pays special attention to the essence and does not get caught up in detail. It is important for a tree to flourish that the root is watered well. Then all its parts automatically get nourished. A True spiritualist like Radhanath Swami always look at addressing root cause of problems and not at superficial solutions like most politicians

  • nitin

    Such a great insight by Radhanath Swami, such teachings will help us to understand the situations in the world.

  • Using HDG Srila Prabhupada’s analogy, just by watering the root of the plant the whole plant is nourished and just by feeding the stomach the whole body is nourished. Similarly, just by understanding our eternal relationship with God and serving Him lovingly all our material problems can be solved. By loving the Supreme Lord we automatically manifest love in our hearts for all beings as they are the parts and parcels of the Supreme Lord……Very nicely conveyed by HH Radhanath Swami who is himself a great devotee of the Lord.

  • Rahul

  • Dashrath Wasmatkar

    Srimad Bhagavatam says that all our relatives, friends, politicians, and so called care takers are ‘asat-sainik’, fallible soldiers. This is the point Radhanath Swami is emphasizing.

    May the scorching sun of hatred, violence and fear set, and the moon of peace and tranquility rise in the heart of all citizens of this strife-torn world.
    Is it possible?
    It is, and Radhanath Swami is showing us how.

  • Kalasudha Devi Dasi

    Srila Radhanath Swami gives a very deep and profound example herein of the night – that it is dark, there is nothing we can do about it. But the presence of the full moon gives light to the world. As aspiring spiritualists, we must have unflinching faith in the words of a bonafide representative of the Lord, like Srila Radhanath Swami, then automatically we will develop the same towards the Lord.

  • Saurabh Vinayak

    Radhanath Swami has made a profound statement here. “a devotee is always seeking shelter of Krishna, and never the shelter of the temporary adjustments and arrangements of this world.” This we can see in his own life also by reading his autobiography “The Journey Home”.

  • Vijay Mathias

    We are in a habit of looking for ‘quick fixes’ for our problems, apparently we looking at problems to be solved in 2 minutes.

    Rarely do we reflect and see below the surface of the problem. Radhanath Swami’s statement to not look for temporary solution and take complete shelter of Krsna is the road ahead for us.

  • Rajesh

    Radhanath Swami brings out a very subtle point, we can only depend on God and nothing and nobody of this world

  • Venkata Buddhiraju

    It is exactly like the situation of peace keeping organizations like the United Nations. They just supress the disorder for sometime before we some nations fighting against each other. As put by Srila Prabhupada, real peace in the society can be brought about only by Krishna consciousness. Radhanath Swami, one of the foremost disciples of Srila Prabhupada has been trying hard towards that end

  • Anup Shah

    Theproblems of this world can be easily solved if we follow the advise of saints like Radhanath Swami instead of the self-centered politicians!

    It is said “Be IN the world but not OF the world”, meaning we live to do the necessary but not give our hearts to the things of this world. This is what Radhanath Swami is saying here.

  • Swaminathan

    Radhanath Swami very astutely identifies the futility of external reorganizations and adjustments. Only by a prayerful mood and by gratitude can we cross over situations or see them in a non-threatening perspective. A short but deep teaching by Radhanath Swami

  • Vinay Malani

    The social & financial disorder in the world at large will keep repeating in a cyclical fashion till the time, as Radhanath Swami says, we take shelter of God and not the temporary adjustments & arrangements carried out by the politicians & governments.
