Tolerant like a tree

1 Posted by - July 1, 2013 - Radhanath Swami

 

A tree will stand in the scorching sun to give shade to others. A tree will bear the freezing cold of the winter and give wood to create heat for all. A tree will silently give up even its life for someone to build a comfortable house with. That is tolerance.

Who is a great personality? One who is more tolerant than a tree. This may seem impossible, but it is actually our nature. Where there is love, spiritual love, there is unlimited tolerance and humility.

    Love conquers all, especially when it is dovetailed to the Lord. Such loves comes by humility and tolerance to all.
    Thank you Maharaja.

    Nice message from Radhanath Swami Maharaj. He always stresses on the point of being as tolerant as tree, which is the key to make progress in one’s spiritual life.

  • A person not affected by even evil activities of his own family members in general. If a person considers Krsna the Supreme father and we are all His children, he never be affected by any one else. All glories to HH Radhanatha Svami Maharaja.

    “Where there is love, spiritual love, there is unlimited tolerance and humility” – What a perfect understanding of the real source of tolerance. Often people try to cultivate tolerance by mechanical techniques but their tolerance is not often close to the par, however if there is spiritual love the tolerance can go high beyond any limits. Many thanks to Radhanath Swami for this revelation.

    Most of the problems and misunderstanding that we come across in our lives is due to non-tolerance. We should somehow develop this habit if we want peace and happiness!
