Radhanath Swami’s Witty Tips for Leaders

Everybody has two sides to his/her personality, one of which is the divine. You should focus on the divine side and fan it. Real leadership means to bring the best side of everyone.

I cling on to these words spoken by Radhnath Swami whenever I feel cynical about the people I lead. But it’s the attitude that we are simply servants, working for the welfare of our dependents, that takes these words to the level of action. Scouring through Vedic history for good kings, we see every one of them spend the formative years of their lives at the hermitage of a guru, where they engage in menial services as part of their education. Thus, later their kingship stood on the foundation of service attitude.

Some years ago, I was introducing a student of one of the premier technological institutes of India, IIT, to Radhanath Swami, “He is a topper in his department.”

Radhanath Swami asked him, “What’s the reverse of TOP?”


“One on TOP has to wash POT to become a good leader.”

On another occasion, I was introducing a leader of a project to Radhanath Swami, “He is the Overall Cordinator.” Radhanath Swami turned to him and said, “Over- all should be taken as all-(are)-over us. We are humble servants of those we lead.”
