On a Pilgrimage with Radhanath Swami

In 1990, I again visited Vrindavan, a holy place in North India. I had been there fifty-odd times before and knew its every nook and corner. Things changed little with time in these relatively remote places. So, even on this visit everything looked familiar, but with Radhanath Swami accompanying me, everything felt mysteriously different. His discourses, his devotional songs and his very presence seemed to unveil the hidden spirituality of that holy place. Everyday we traveled on foot, from dawn to dusk, visiting different places in Vrindavan: temples, hermitages, holy shrines and forests. Witnessing his devotion for Vrindavan, I was humbled: for the first time I realized that a holy place went deeper than its mere geography.

To visit holy places may not be so difficult,but once there what we do ,really outlines our core character . Is it because going to holy places increases your spiritual credits or we need to get some favor from the lord or for curiosity sake and so on the reasons may be varied. Radhanath Swami lays emphasis on the point that we should understand that these are places where the lord has performed his innumerable leela’s and we must approach them with gratitude and devotion.

Radhanath Swami has stayed in Vrindavan earlier and he also knows a lot of vrajvasis. A tour with him is a life-time opportunity.

I had the good fortune of visiting and seeing Sri Vrajadham through his sound in 2001. I feel blessed…

I would say it was your good fortune to visit Vrindavan with HH Radhanath Swami. With Him now can really see and learn about Vrindavan very lovingly.

Thanks for sharing this wonderful realization – Indeed it requires mercy of a Pure Devotee to unveil the spirituality of any Holy place.

We cannot visit a holy place by just buying a ticket. We need the mercy of the Lord to be there. And being there we cannot just realise it with our own eyes, but we need the guidance of a self-realised soul. Radhanath Maharaj is the best Guide !!

It is said that to really understand the glories of Dham we need an association of devotees, and in the case of author, the devotee is Radhanath Swami Maharaj himself so what can be said more about it!!!

Only one who can see can show. Radhanath Swami empowered by his spiritual master can see and also show the spiritual places in the true sense.

All Glories TO H.H.Radhanath Swami Maharaj

A Gurus presence can make all the difference.

to visit Holy places from our hearts anointed with love for God is very difficult, hence we need to take shelter of souls like HH Radhanath swami Maharaj

Shashtras say that we can not experience the spiritual vibrations of a Holy place and it’s very clear by reading this article. Radhanath Swami is a pure spirit soul in the presence of whom, we can really see and feel the real Vrindavan, which otherwise remains a mystery for us.

A very true statement at the end that His Holiness Radhanth Swami Maharaj unfolds the true spiritual identity of the holy places in a beautiful way.

Guru is always show us the torch of Wisdom so that we could escape ourself by doing Dham offences.
