Radhanath Swami’s Analysis of Humility

Once on Radhanath Swami’s birthday, a few resident monks at the Mumbai centre entered Radhanath Swami’s room with a neatly wrapped gift. He graciously accepted the offering while the leader of our group expressed appreciation of his wonderful qualities, including genuine humility that he possesses. Then Radhanath Swami enlightened us on how the highest amount of humility of a soul of this world is nothing compared to God’s humility. He reasoned, “We approach God with this wretched foul smelling body; it’s nothing more than a bag of stool and urine. Still God accepts our service. Our mind is filled with most lusty and degraded thoughts of envy and pride. Yet when we offer some prayer, God gratefully accepts. With our tiny mouth and limited capacity how much we can glorify God as compared to great stalwarts and pure hearted saints. Yet when we glorify God, God accepts our appreciation. When we say ‘Oh God, I am offering my body, mind, and words to you’, God very happily and gratefully accepts it. Will we ever accept an offering which is externally so contaminating and impure? Never, yet God accepts our offering. So who is actually more humble and what is our humility?”

We left the room stunned at this analysis of humility and gratitude. Only one who is fully God consciousness can think like this. It is one thing to speak on humility but to be convinced of this principle and live by the highest standards of humility is a different thing. Radhanath Swami’s consciousness is filled with love for God and he has complete conviction that we are insignificant and God is Supreme in every respect.

What a wonderful incident expressing Radhanath Swami’s full God realisation and his complete humility.

This is so deep and amazing. Maharaj mentioned God is called as bhava-grahi – one who seeks only love. And now its clearer what God ignores – the foul smelling body, our tininess, unwanted thoughts in mind etc.

HH Radhanath Swami Maharaj Ki Jai!

Thats really true. Thanks Maharaj for inspiring us with such an wounderful realization. If we have this analysis in mind , we will understand our tiny , insignificant position

you are right but Sometimes i thinks according to (s.b. 10.31.9)tava kathamrutam….! from only you we can know who krishna is !!

Thanks a lot for sharing this wonderful experience with us which shows Guru Maharaj is always inspiring us n teaching us ,on each step of life how to be humble.

Radhanath Swami is truly a Mahatma and is endlessly, foolishly, incredibly merciful. I had the good fortune of coming in contact with him once last year and almost immediately, I could feel his humility. That day, I also realized how a great soul like him can induce Bhakti instantly into fallen souls like me!

i am completely in awe of maharaj, i have nothing to say… words are too small to glorify a magnanimous personality like him….

Wonderful!!! Humility of Radhanath Swami knows no bounds. Only a truly humble soul can think like this.

Thank you so much prabhu for sharing wonderful nectar.

HH Radhanath swami maharaj is personified humility. We can feel each and every step of his actions, words. He is really great acharya.

What a perfect analysis of humility!
Many thanks to Radhanath swami for sharing that with us all.

Radhanath Swami’s deep perception of seeing everything in connection with God and never getting carried away by superficiality really shows depth of a exalted spiritual personality…

Wonderful analysis of what true humility is! amazing thoughts and moreover, Radhanath Swami walks the talk!
