“Sadhura Vyavahara”

“Sadhura Vyavahara”, the behavior of a spiritually advanced soul, establishes the true purpose of spiritual principles; this was the verdict of a 14th century saint, Shri Chaitanya. Srila A. C.Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupad, the founder Acharya of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, would often remark, “What is the use of philosophy without good character?”

What are the qualities exhibited by a spiritually advanced person? What is the purpose behind imbibing these qualities? How can we go about imbibing these qualities?

We extract answers to the above question from talks given by Radhanath Swami.

Compassion

Forgiveness

Gratitude

Humility

Simplicity

    The behaviour of a person is more attractive than what he speaks. So all these devotional qualities are so important for a spiritual seeker.
