Radhanath Swami – Advice to a newly wed couple

Lord Ram was willing to fight one of the greatest wars in history just to protect His wife Sita. And Sita was willing to undergo the most tragic difficulties of living in a jungle for 14 years just to assist her husband Ram. If you both live in this spirit throughout your marriage you will perfect your lives. The focus, the centre of your relationship should be to create a favorable environment to lead spiritual lives. In order to do so, there has to be a spirit of service between the two of you. That service should be offered with affection and care. And especially tolerance. In this age, tolerance is most required, because by the nature of this age when two egos come together, there is bound to be conflict. There will be disagreements and misunderstandings, and as time goes on, certain things about each other will become disgusting and there will be great disagreements. It is inevitable. The sanctity of your marriage will be based on how you don’t take these differences very seriously. By Radhanath Swami
