Scriptures do not teach that we have to leave the world. We have to leave the exploitative, envious, greedy nature.
– Radhanath Swami
Very nice quote. Thank you very much.
This is a very useful clarification from HH Radhanath Swami. Often we have this reservation that by picking up devotional life we’d need to give up everything else in life, which is not at all true. We can continue to practice spirituality even while living in family and scriptures guide us to give up vices and cultivate positive qualities. Many thanks for sharing this useful wisdom.
Wonderful teachings.. Thank you HH Radhanath Swami.
Thank you Radhanath Swami for giving this deeper meaning of renunciation. It helps me understand that there is no meaning giving up things externally while maintaining our inner, egoistic attachments.
Swami ji has very nicely clarified the most common misunderstanding common people have in India that becoming spiritual means to renounce everything. Thank you so much swami ji…
Yes.. this really clarifies this common confusion and puts things in proper perspective.
I must say that the picture used for this quote is so very relevant and just perfect. Thank you very much.
Complete agree with you Piyush Ji …
Thanks Rajeev :).
Wonderful quote. Thank you very much.
Very true! Spirituality is not about leaving the world, it’s about being in this world but with the right consciousness of humility, honesty, compassion dedication, chanting the holy names of the Lord and offering loving devotional service.
