Of all disgraceful behavior, there is nothing worse than ingratitude.

  • CS Sandeep S. Shinde

    Very nice quote. I pray to Lord Krishna that i should always feel gratitude for everything i have.

    • Piyush Singh

      A very sincere prayer Sandeep ji. Thank you. I also pray the same for myself.

  • rajeev

    Swami ji has given us mantra to remain grateful in whatever situation we are in. Thank you so much,

    • Piyush Singh

      Well said Rajeev.

  • Piyush Singh

    A very deep and alarming wisdom from HH Radhanath Swami. I never thought so far that ingratitude is such a dangerous vice of all the vices. However, after pondering on this wisdom it really seems to be the dangerous most because when we are not grateful for what we have, we may tend to develop a feel of being in control and that may further lead us to all the other vices. Many thanks for publishing this wisdom.

    • Keshav Kishor Das

      Well said Piyushji….! Thank You

      • Piyush Singh

        Thank you Keshav ji for encouragement.

    • rajeev

      Agreed Piyush Ji, this will give us impetus to think in right direction to be grateful for every small and big thing we have in life.

      • Piyush Singh

        Thank you Rajeev ji for agreeing.

  • Vinay Jain

    Radhanath Swami also often says – “If you are not grateful, you are great fool!” . Thank you Radhanath Swami for this very important insight.

    • Piyush Singh

      Thanks Vinay for sharing this. I also heard this from him elsewhere and this is very striking.

  • Rajeev

    Humble question to you Swami Ji, I was really inspired to see this quote, while trying to imbibe it in my own life I could see that mind naturally is becoming judgemental to judge others basis this principle – instead of diving deep into my own consciousness and applying it to myself only. Please tell me how can I practice this principle in my own life and do not apply it to others.

    • Piyush Singh

      A very genuine question Rajeev, actually this happens to me as well. However, what I heard in one of the lectures is that we learn the etiquette to improve our own self and not to judge others. So it is something to practice at our own level.

  • CS Sandeep S. Shinde

    Wonderful quote. Thank you very much

  • Keshav Kishor Das

    The background picture is so appropriate for the quote…….! Incredible message…!

    • Piyush Singh

      Yes Keshav ji, the background image just fits well with this wisdom. With ingratitude, we dry like these dry leaves.

  • CS Sandeep S. Shinde

  • Piyush Singh

    This wisdom really inspires to feel grateful as if not grateful then one is great fool, I heard this also somewhere from HH Radhanath Swami.
