    Unfortunately, this is the sad picture of modern day self centered so called loves. HH Radhanath Swami states this to make us aware that to advance on spiritual path we need to give up selfish mentality and need to act as a selfless servant of everyone else. Very inspiring and thought provoking wisdom.
