Good Karma – Radhanath Swami

Karma means good work.  Vikarma means bad work in ego and there is akarma, which means work in pure devotion to God. When we purify our heart of ego then all of our karma is pure, divine, and spiritual. How to attain that state? The only way is to purify our mind and purify our heart by spiritual practice.  It is practical message that anyone of us can apply to our life.  We gradually become purified and in that pure state everything we do, say or think is simply an expression of God’s love.

  • Vinay Malani

    Radhanath Swami has himself undertaken so many projects such as RadhaGopinath temple, Barsana Eye camp, Midday Meal, Venu Madhuri etc. as service to his spiritual master. Each of these projects by Maharaj has a very strong underlying spiritual cause to it & therefore akarmic in nature. We need to emulate Maharaj’s example in this regards and dovetail all our skills & talents in the service of God.

  • Madhusudan

    Only yesterday Mukund chaitanya prabhu was talking about Prabhupada’s quote “Purity is the force”. He emphasized the importance of purifying self over carrying out services.

    I think that is because of the last line of the thought presented by Radhanath Swami.

  • nawal sood

    abiding by the law of the LORD

  • Sujit Mehta

    ‘KARMA’ this word is used, quoted, explained, etc in so many ways and context. That has made it loose its significance greatly and we take it so cheaply, don’t believe just look at the way the world is going , virtually nobody cares and almost all are so absorbed in indulging in every possible way fearlessly. Radhanath Swami’s articles help us to knock some sense in our mind and lost intelligence, are we ready to listen?
