Radhanath Swami, as sweet as a leader could be.

“Great leaders get people to think more of themselves, not more of the leader.”

Radhanath Swami is a brilliant orator. Thousands all over the globe, and especially in India, hear his recordings regularly to nourish their spiritual lives. Many openly admit their addiction to Radhanath Swami’s lectures—and I am one amongst them.  You can spot me in the front row whenever Radhanath Swami discourses at Radhagopinath Ashram.

A few years ago Radhanath Swami was invited to Kolkata for holding a series of talks on the Vedic scripture Srimad Bhagavatam. As he was about to depart from Radhagopinath Ashram, a throng gathered around to see him off. I stood at a distance, in feeling. I would miss hearing from him! Suddenly, Radhanath Swami gestured me to come closer. He embraced. Then as he gazed affectionately at me, lengthy few moments of silence passed.

Finally he said, “It will be hard for me to speak at Kolkata without you sitting in the front row.” He then left, as I stood there speechless–bashful, but with a bounty of self-worth.
