The mind always searches for some reason to be dissatisfied.
– Radhanath Swami
This wisdom may shock some of us who didn’t understand the reason for the constant dissatisfaction that we usually have. HH Radhanath Swami shares this very important point knowing this can surely curb our dissatisfaction. After knowing this, one should not try to satisfy the ever dissatisfied mind, but should try to train and compose the mind with spiritual wisdom, and that will lead to holistic satisfaction of mind and soul. Many thanks for publishing this vital guidance.
Thank you Radhanath Swami for this important insight into the nature of the mind! It is so true, yet so difficult to detect practically in actual situations. Hopefully, henceforth this quote will help me more vigilant about this fact.
Very well said. The nature of mind so difficult to detect but we can certainly apply the lessons learnt from gurus like HH Radhanath Swami.
I always wondered…….., why people take intoxicants……..! Here is the answer……! Mind is by default dissatisfied…..! But it can be completely satisfied by chanting the Holy Names…..!
Very true! The mind is always dissatisfied and in anxiety because of having expectations from things, people or circumstances. And when those expectations are not met, we are frustrated. The only remedy is to find a lasting satisfaction and that can be achieved by chanting, being in the association of devotees, rendering devotional service, always remembering Krsna and never forgetting him.
