Radhanath Swami, always loving and caring

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.

    Thank you for sharing such a nice article and showing us the very caring nature of Maharaj.
    Simplicity of heart attracts Krishna and Maharaj is simplicity personified. This results in the caring nature of Maharaj even for the seemingly ‘not-so-important’ people of the society.

    This is typical of Radhanath Swami to be more concerned about others’ well-being than his own health.

    What a narration. Yes, we only catch a few glimpses or minutes of Radhanath Swami and want to see him behave in a particular way without knowing just how jam-packed his schedule is. Due to such self-centeredness we can sometimes fail to appreciate what he is doing for millions of people all over the world.

    A true devotee of the Lord sees no difference between different living entities. He sees everyone through the same vision. Radhanath Swami is a classic example of this.

    Every time I hear and see such pastimes of exalted personalities (Srila Prabhupada disciples in current times) – definition of “devotional service” simply seems to go deeper and deeper…
