Radhanath Swami on youth, choices and responsibility

6 Posted by - October 2, 2014 - Radhanath Swami

The youth is the future of the world. At this stage in your lives, many choices will appear before you; the choices you make will determine the road you travel in your life. The choices you make will have a very serious effect on the society and the world. Human life is a life of responsibility. Those great souls in the past, who have taken seriously their responsibilities, have done such incredible service to human society.

    Very true. Many times just for some fun or some short shortsightedness we made wrong choices and later it brings so many difficulties. We regret at that time for our own wrong choice and in state of depression instead of taking responsibility of our choice we blaspheme our fate and the Lord for creating such situations. So we need to be for careful for our choices. It is said very well “As you saw so shall you ripe”. On the other side many examples are there who have taken correct choices, took responsibility and created wonderful world. For example Srila Prabhupad’s disciples who have followed words of Srila Prabhupad and dedicated their lives to help Srila Prabhupad in preaching mission of Lord Caitanya. Today ISKCON is helping human society to be god conscious.

    So we are only responsible for our own choices. If we can have complete faith in God and If our intentions are good, Lord will inspire us to take correct decision at the time of difficulty.

    The youth of this world is standing on the junction of Choices from whereon he moves to shape a better tomorrow. SO we need to be careful , in the choices we make in this life. It should be after careful consideration of pros and cons and not have a “just do It” attitude.

      Spiritual organizations say many things. But have they done anything practical. I wonder.

  • Sanjiv

    Upto making the choice we can change our future, after making the choice, we have to accept what fate will bring to us based on the choice made

    The most important factor that i feel that Youths today hardly find a Genuine Role model- whose characteristic they can emulate in their lives. But Radhanath Swami has done tremendous efforts to nurture the youths of Bombay. Not just their lives have been transformed but also they are transforming the society around.

    Here’s the link of the vibrant youth community that i mentioned above – http://iysmumbai.com/
