Radhanath Swami While Walking Through the Courtyard…

This happened in 2000. My daughter, age six, played with her friends in the courtyard of Radhgopinath Temple, while my wife and I socialized in a nearby garden. Radhanath Swami, while passing through the courtyard, stepped right in front of my daughter. His face radiating a smile, and his fingers pointing to her, he announced to no one in particular, “She is my friend.” Then he walked away.

My little daughter felt assured that Radhanath Swami knew her and loved her. Her confidence in that relationship wouldn’t diminish, despite any second interaction with him, for years. My wife and I were amused by her childish innocence, “Radhanath Swami might have passed that remark to thousands just to make them feel good. How could he know all of them, let alone love all of them?!” But we didn’t have the heart to disappoint her.

In 2010, one Sunday, my daughter, now sixteen, talked with her friends in the courtyard of Radhagopinath Temple, while my wife and I socialized in the nearby garden. Radhanath Swami, while passing through the courtyard, stepped right in front of my daughter. His face radiating a smile, and his fingers pointing to her, he announced to no one in particular, “She is my friend.” Then he walked away.

Now, even we felt assured that Radhanath Swami knew our daughter and loved her. How unambiguously had he conveyed the feelings of his heart to a child, through just a little interaction! And how wonderfully was the truth of that relationship revealed to us today!

    Maharajah is so personal in his dealing.Whoever meets him once can never remain same.He might be addressing thousand of people, but everyone feels he is just talking to them.

    From this incident we can surely assure that a true spiritual master knows the heart of each & every disciple & has a personal relationship with his disciples. We have to just be patient & sincerely keep serving him.
