Compassion is not just a theoretical conceptualization of the mind. Compassion is a way of life.
– Radhanath Swami
Such a wonderful and holistic way of perceiving compassion. Often we consider compassion as a momentary emotion that is to be expressed at some selection occasions, but HH Radhanath Swami makes this very important by stating it to be way of life so appropriately. Thank you for publishing this wisdom.
Nice comment.. We need to put it in practice..
Very deep and self realized answer. In today’s fast moving technology world, people either completely free and other people don’t have any time. People with good money and time show some compassionate nature. Due that they help every one without understanding that really their help may be useful person or not? Compassion is essential and we need to learn it over the period of time how our help can help a person to grow his/her spiritual requirements along with material aspects. Here H H Radhanath Swami has given wonderful and still very deep understanding of the compassion based on self realization of his own life.
What a deep statement. These kinds of words of wisdom only come from self realisation. Generally we consider compassion in mundane world to do some charity to a beggar or a NGO which is all material and nothing spiritual. As Srila Prabhupada says caring for the body of a person is like saving a drowning persons jacket and not the person. So real compassion is to show kindness by giving the Holy name of Krishna to materially addicted and ignorant people. We generally only show material compassion and that too only to financially poor people. But what about materially rich people that are spiritually poor. Why dont we feel compassion towards them? thats becuase our compassion is generally material and not real. Real compassion is to give Holy name to one and all and not restrict it to only a sect of people.
Very true and everyone must strive to attain the quality of compassion because the whole world needs it today,
Thanks Maharaj for explaining so beautifully the meaning of compassion!
