“Sadhura Vyavahara”

26 Qualities

“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.

Thank you for maintaining this site and letting us know the characteristics of a sadhu like Radhanath swami.

Thank you for explaining the purpose of maintaining this website and serving its purpose.

Following in the footsteps of the great acharyas, we should endeavour to develop these vaishnava qualities in order to progress in our spiritual lives.

All of us should develop these qualities if we wish to progress in our spiritual lives.

a lot to learn from all these stories … teaching through personal behaviors makes great impact in our heart.. thank you.. we need more stories and i am sure that there are unlimited stories. thank you.

A true spiritualist is known by his character and not merely by his qualification. In fact, an authorised spiritualist does not make a show of his position and behaves with humility and simplicity. He is not interested in his glorification and whatever glorification he receives from others, he passes all those glories to his spiritual teacher. In vedic scriptures, there are many examples mentioned wherein great spiritualists have shown these important characteristics.

Very nice article by Radhanath Swami.
