Ideal Taxes – Radhanath Swami

Ideal Taxes - Radhanath Swami

Places where it is most needed for everyone’s welfare. But today, somehow or other, the money is being extracted but we don’t see any money coming down. We don’t know where it is gone.

We never hear the sun taking any bribes. But, nowadays we know that nothing is going to be provided for me unless I bribe. What does this mean? This means that the leaders are not God conscious, they are not ruling on behalf of God. They are ruling on behalf of their own pride, their own ego and their own exploitative tendency. Some leaders really want to do good to people. Such a soul is very rare. They may have all good motives; but they cannot fulfill their desires to really help, because they are not directed by the saintly persons and the holy books, who can teach them the actual method to be in harmony with arrangement of God.

  • Keshav

    The last line is very enlivening. Thos who want to do good should do it in consultation with the Holy Scriptures and Saintly Persons, so that it is compliant with the arrangement of GOD. All religious and spiritual reformations have to be done like this else it will be a chaotic failure.

  • Chandrashekar

    By reading this I could really get convinced that people in this world are not interested in helping others. So we need to depend only on God and His devotees like HH Radhanath Swami Maharaj

  • kaushik

    Sun taking bribe! Humorous but such a powerful message!

  • Unmesh

    Radhanath Swami has rightly pointed out reason for chaos in modern society. “Lack of God Conciousness”.

  • Shyam Bihari Das

    We need to take responsibility for the leaders we elect. If we, at the grass roots level, make sure we only elect God Conscious leaders, then what Maharaj says will come true. The onus is on the people who elect leaders without giving much thought to God Consciousness. Hari Bol!

  • Vishvesh Jogalekar

    Very good guidance for the political leaders.

  • Y.Raja shekar

    This article of Radhanath Swami truly proves that Radhanath Swami is not of this world. The vedic priciples based on which Radhanath Swami always preaches are very clear and if one follows, gets the ultimate peace and benefit on the long run.

  • Pravin

    Here HH Radhanath swami maharaj is echoing the words of Bhagavatam and Srila Prabhupada.

  • Anita Iyer

    Beautiful analogy of sun and rain. The demigods work according to the desire of the Lord. Unfortunately, we have leaders in society who do not and that causes havoc. But we can become God conscious and help others do so. That will change the face of society.

  • Parag Udeshi

    It is so true that if we all desire to have Ram Rajya then our leaders need to follow what has been taught by Lord Ramchandra.

  • krishang

    wonderful,thank you

  • Damodar

    AS Radhanath swami is indicating here there are still few rare people who want to do good , but they do not know hoe to do good. We need guidance of qualified people like Radhanath swami to really do good to society.

  • Sujit Mehta

    ‘Degradation’ in all aspects of society, that seems to be the direction to follow for survival today. Yet the Lord always gives hope to all, time to time either he descends or sends his representative to give us the understanding, Radhanath Swami teaches by example and transmits the message of god in an unadulterated form.

  • CS Sandeep Shinde

    Radhanath swami has described the true quality of an ideal leader.

    Radhanath Swami Maharaj has correctly analysed the root cause of our problems and he has given solution too.

  • vinay rachh

    A very nice article by maharaj describing the role of a true govt.

  • Radhanath Swami is giving the solution to all problems. If leaders follow his instructions we will be out of so called global financial problems which many leading countries are facing today. Presidents and Prime ministers should take advise of Radhanath Swami

  • anjanadri

    very nice post from Radhanath swami. Thanks for sharing this wonderful post.

  • nisha

    I wish the leaders of the generation follow the path as suggested by our scriptures.

  • Gautam Gupta

    God centered life is answer to all our problems as advised by Radhanath Swami.

  • Yogita Jagannathan

    As Radhanath Swami says, if today’s leaders were God conscious, we would be lining in a totally different world – with no slaughterhouses, casinos, pubs etc. Under such God centred leadership, people would also imbibe good qualities.

  • Srinivas

    Radhana Swami explained the current scenario very nicely and suggested the solution

  • Anant Bhat

    Yes, Maharaj says right. I also agree with Balaji’s comments..

  • Vinay Malani

    Spirituality is the basis of a good moral character. But like Radhanath Swami mentions, people nowadays are very corrupt & selfish because they are devoid of God-consciousness. Unless we live by the spiritual principles, morality cannot exist in the society.

  • Vaishali Kamat

    Radhanath Swami is that visionary who can direct people to the right direction.

  • mukund

    a unique experience

  • rajesh jogani

    very nice analogy

  • Veena

    Very true!! Krishna Consciousness is very important & needs to be inculcated in everyone.

  • sandeep

    Radhanath swami has exactly depicted the current scenario. It also shows how world desperatley needs Krishna consciousness.

  • This is the root cause of disasters today. Radhanath Swami is rightly pointing out how we as citizens of whichever country we may be are completely misled by the so called leaders.

  • Hemant

    This is the reason the Vedas recommend monarchy over Democracy. A just and God Conscious King (kshatriya) will as per the Vedic system take advise from learned Brahmans and rule for the welfare for all. Whatever tax is collected is spent for the good of everybody.

  • Abhijit

    Radhanatha Swami points out in no uncertain terms that root cause of all problems is lack of God Consciousness.

  • Krishna

    Now a days bribe is the most common thing to get the things done. People take this as default. If everybody understands the message what maharaj is teaching then we will have Ram rajya. Thanks for sharing this article.

  • krishang

    “leaders are not God conscious, they are not ruling on behalf of God. They are ruling on behalf of their own pride”very true

  • hrishikesh mafatlal

    It is not a coincidence that a huge increase in corruption has happened along with a huge decrease in values and morals in society.

  • Anil Timbe

    Many people have desire to do good to others. But they do not know what to do. Here Radhanath Swami is so nicely describing how if we become God conscious then we’ll be doing good to all.

  • Manish Raikundalia

    Radhanath Maharaj has so nicely pointed out the cause for corruption.

  • It takes so much to actually be a good leader. So many people depend on the leader in so many ways. Especially as Radhanath Swami is pointing here, if the leader is not God conscious, then only anarchy results.

  • swapnil

    Excellent article by Radhanath Swami. A must read for all the political leader

  • Mangesh Kulkarni

    With Radhanath Swami, we don’t need to tax our brain. So wonderful and perfect still utterly simple

  • Radhanath Swami emphasized how the leaders of this current society should be and how society and dependents can flourish while keeping God in the center.

  • Meera Sharma

    Prabhupad took so much pain to cultivate Brahmans(learned, intelligent class) from all over the world. His disciples following his foot steps doing the same. So if we have leaders who are guided by Brahmans then only there can be peace in the society.Maharajah explained so clearly we need God Conscious leader to have a peaceful society.

  • mukund

    inspiring example

  • Aman Jain

    Radhanath Swami has described the characterstics of ideal leader based upon Vedic scriptures.

  • krishang

    very well said,thank you maharaj

  • Girish

    Radhanath Swami has cited an ideal explain to explain a ideal lifestyle.

  • suresh kanakraj

    leaders are the servants of the society and of the peoples hence first of all leaders should be god conscious only then the people in general will be happy practising spirituality,all leaders should follow the instructions of radhanath swami,

  • Y.Raja Shekar

    The guru of Radhanath swami said “A king is supposed to be the representative of God”. But unfortunately in today’s world no leader is God cosnscious and hence can not give justice to their dependents. “We never heard Sun taking bribe” This statement of Radhanath Swami is very hilarious.

  • Ravi Garg

    We pary that all the leaders of the society takes to advise of Radhanath Swami & selflessly serve the people as a service to God……

  • Aishwarya

    Radhanath Swami beautifully explains the ideal distribution of the taxes through the analogy of the clouds distribution of rain in the needy places.

  • Balaji

    When the leaders of the society are properly trained in Krishna Consciousness, then all the problems of society can be solved as they rule on behalf of God.

  • Sheetal Maheshwari

    Often people don’t believe that systematic training in God Consciousness can help solve all the problems of the world. This article so clearly explains one such aspect.

  • prashant v

    this is very true today the leadership position is accepted to enjoy the facilities not to serve the common mass, as Maharaj has enlightened us that because of not receiving proper guidance from authorized guides they are simply using the extracted money for their selfish and egoistic purposes that has caused havoc in society.

  • Sandeep Kamat

    It is so true what Radhanath Swami is saying. What we really lack are God-conscious leaders today. When a person is God-conscious he develops all the good qualities and also he is selfless.
    God conscious leaders is what the society needs today.

  • Raj Chopra

    Radhanath Swami has explained the impact of a God conscious leader on society and vice versa.

    Some day we hope to see such a God conscious leader and I am sure his countrymen will be happy , grateful and God loving citizens.

  • Siddeshwar Bhat

    I have read in the Srimad Bhagavatam about ideal Kings. Kings like Yudhistir, Bharath and Parikshit. They lived by the same principles as Radhanath Swami is pointing herein
