Radhanath Swami (born December 7, 1950) was initiated by A.C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupad (The Founder Acharya of the International society for Krishna Consciousness) in the summer of 1973. Over the past four decades Radhanath Swami has lectured widely in the USA, Europe and India. Radhanath Swami is based in the ISKCON Center in Chowpatty, Mumbai, India.

Radhanath Swami inspires millions on the spiritual path. How can one person inspire so many?! The phenomena of spiritual inspiration defies mundane logic and reasoning. Yet, the Vedas mark out a few channels through which inspiration flows.

The first channel is the process of vani, through the messages of the great souls. The Vedas say that associating with the message has the identical inspirational effect as associating with the advanced spiritualists delivering that message. In our case, it means that receiving the message of Radhanath Swami is identical to associating with Radhanath Swami. “I am present in the recordings of my lectures,” Radhanath Swami himself once said. This might sound absurd to many, but for thousands all over the world who hear recordings of Radhanath Swami regularly, this is an obvious reality; the proof of the pudding becomes obvious to one who eats it.

The second channel is the process of vapu, through directly associating and interacting with great souls. The interactions with the celebrities of this mortal realm can only influence one’s mind, and that too for a short duration. But interactions with celebrities of the spiritual realm leave deep impressions on the heart that can withstand the effect of time. Hundreds who have interacted with Radhanath Swami have vouched for this phenomenon.

A few souls share with us their experiences with Radhanath Swami.We retell them in this website. Some mail us their experiences, and we included them too. Again, it might sound mystical, but the Vedas say that hearing or reading stories of great souls is identical with associating with great souls. And in our case, hearing or reading stories of Radhanath Swami is identical to associating with Radhanath Swami! So, happy reading!!!

I am an Israeli who spent 10 years in New York and only recently went back to Israel with hopes of helping peace arrive in this region that needs it so badly. Since I read Radhanath Swami’s book a few years back, I attended all lectures he gave in New York, always thinking about each lecture for months after and telling everyone who are open enough, about him, his journey and his lectures. Magical things have always happened when his light is around me. Read more …

Vehicles honked and spewed out black clouds of exhaust. Pedestrians peacefully crossed the busy street, zigzagging through the sluggish traffic. Malls, swarming with customers, lined the sidewalk.

“When did that happen?….” He stopped. His expression grew grave. Read more …
