Radhanath Swami – Enjoy Eternal Peace

Radhanath Swami - Enjoy eternal peace

There is temporary mental peace of material world and there is the eternal peace of the spiritual world.  That is what God wants every one of His children to enjoy.  It comes to the extent that we surrender to Him.  The illusion in the world is to try to keep as much as we can for ourselves, and to make God our order supplier.  We go to the temple or church or mosque to beg God to give us all that we need in our lives.  Sometimes I need money, sometimes I need good health, sometimes I need progress in my business endeavors, sometimes I need nice prestige, sometimes I want a new house, new car, or I want my children to have nice husbands and wives.  We simply demand, ‘God give me this, get me that.’  There is no love in that relationship.

God may give us but even if we receive all the things we asked for, there would be no true satisfaction in our life because material pleasures have a beginning and an end.  They only leave us with the longing for more.  The real goal of life is loving service to God, and that service must be completely unmotivated and uninterrupted to satisfy our souls completely.

    Loving service to the Lord is the only satisfaction for the soul. But unfortunately we do not realise that and go on tirelessly trying to enjoy in this material world. This article wonderfully points this out.

  • Sanjay S

    Our eternal position is to be compassionate and to serve and God is to enjoy.
    But in our conditioned state we want God to be compassionate and serve (us) and we should enjoy.
    Such a sorry state of affairs.

    All Glories to HH Radhanath Swami Maharaj.

    Maharaj has revealed what gives true satisfaction to the self. Its not the material pleasures which are temporary but the service to the Supreme Absolute Truth, only uninterrupted and unmotivated loving service can completely satisfy the self.

  • Arjun K Ramachandra

    What a perfect way to put forward the truth! It is in our experience to understand how nothing material can truly satisfy us although it may give us some temporary feeling of pleasure! Else why would all the ads be screaming ” Yeh Dil Maange More!”? Wheras the devotee who engages cent percent in the service of the lord is completely satisfied from within and never hankers for the fleeting objects of this world. Thank you Radhanath Maharaj for revealing this truth in such a simple yet profound way!

  • Eternal peace in spiritual world 🙂

  • Material pleasures have a beginning and an end …they only leave us with the longing for more…..very profound statement and is also experienced by us . Real goal is to serve God. Thankyou Maharaj.

  • umesh

    Very wonderful & enlightening article from Radhanath Swami Maharaj.

    I liked below lines in particular:

    God may give you, but even if you receive all the things, you asked for, there would be no true satisfaction your life, because material pleasures have a beginning and an end.

  • Pramathesh Nimkar

    Radhanath Swami brings out avery important point here. That Vaishnavism is far beyond traditional Hinduism that directs its follower towards worshipping God(s) and Goddesses for attaining the 4 purusharthas – Artha, Kama, Dharama and Moksha. Vaishnavism urges its follower to attain the fifth and the ultimate purushartha. The purushartha shiromani – love of God, and epmhatically establishes that only that and that only can truly satisfy one self

  • Ravi Garg

    Thanks swamiji….in todays world, worship is like a business where offer some money in exchange of fulfillment of their material desires……there is no exchange of love…..

  • Vaishali Kamat

    So rightly said by Radhanath Swami. If we follow his teachings, we will surely get the real peace of mind.

  • Y.Raja Shekar

    Radhanath Swami gives a clear picture of nature of this material world. The soul will get eternal satisfaction only when he takes up the serive of the Lord. Thank you Radhanath Swami for this wonderful and clear knowledge.

  • prashant v

    Maharaj has clearly stated that to satisfy the soul we need not look outward but seek that satisfaction in the loving service of the lord. That satisfaction bring complete peace in society.

  • Yogesh valhe

    Wonderful words from HH Radhanath Swami!

  • hrishikesh mafatlal

    This is a revolutionary thought which I never knew of till I understood the real spiritual science through the scriptures.

  • seema

    Very aptly put….that all material things have a beginning and an end.If we understand this then we are on the right path.

  • Radhanath Swami is emphasizing that we must not do business with the Supreme Lord i.e. i am worshipping you so you now become my order supplier. Radhanath Swami is emphasizing it is so important to develop the true love…

  • Gautam Daswani

    This article gives us an insight that we should not approach god for material things and should only serve god with full love and devotion.

  • Perfect formula is given by Radhanath Swami. Thanks a lot for sharing.

  • Uma

    Everybody is looking for peace, but in all the wrong places. True and eternal peace can only be found through service at the lotus feet of Lord Krishna and his devotees.

  • Piyush Singh

    Very true. Often I approach God for so many material things. Thank you Radhanth Swami for enlightening me that these are not ultimate goal. The real goal is loving service to God, and that service must be unmotivated and uninterrupted to satisfy our souls completely.

  • Uday

    Radhanath Swami is giving a very nice peace formula.Real peace and happiness is not in getting what we want but in doing what God wants.God has everything.Only thing he wants from us is love.
