Radhanath Swami, always loving and caring

Radhanath Swami, always loving and caring

Its not unusual to find Radhanath Swami to be in midst of important engagements but still be conscious of apparently simpler things in life. However, on this occasion my opinion was nearly challenged. Radhanath Swami’s secretary was sick and had to be admitted in the hospital. I was trying to fill in the gap and I was expecting that why Radhanath Swami is not asking anything about his secretary. Does he care about him or is he just unconcerned? Fortunately my skepticism could not last long. It was a warm evening and Radhanath Swami had just returned after a very important meeting with some distinguished citizens of Mumbai. I was arranging for few last things of the day and Radhanath Swami was about to take rest when he suddenly asked me about his secretary. I explained to him how he was in the hospital and was now recuperating. I specifically told him that physically he is very weak. Radhanath Swami while sipping his glass of milk very gently and with an air of humor said, “that’s how I always feel” and he began to laugh. I was immediately reminded of the extraordinary sacrifices that Radhanath Swami has done in his life in order to serve others. At times, even at the cost of his health. However this was not enough, a more heart melting experience awaited me when Radhanath Swami asked me, “How are you?” and I replied that I was fine. He continued and said, “Is there anything I can do for you?”, for a moment I was speechless. Here was a man of such spiritual caliber, interacting with so many important people of society but his heart delighted in the simple aspects of life. This interaction has left a deep impression in my psyche and certainly I can no more afford to be skeptical about his caring and loving demeanor towards one and all.
