Radhanath Swami on Pursuing something eternal

4 Posted by - December 16, 2014 - Radhanath Swami

All the wealth, power and prestige of this world are like peanuts. People lie, cry and die for these peanuts. But at any moment the monkey of another person’s greed or one’s death will take all peanuts away. So pursue for something eternal.

    So true. No matter how much wealth one accumulates, it is sure to be taken away one day or the another. HH Radhanath Swami advises a better alternative is to actively pursue the eternal goal of self realization. Thank you very much for sharing this inspiring wisdom.

    Very true! We are always hankering after material things which will not accompany us after death. So we should concentrate on the eternal which will be with us forever.

    Very nicely explained by Radhanath Swami how all our endeavours if not directed to achieve something eternal is all useless.
    Such a heavy concept is described in very simple anolgy
