    Thank you very much for putting an insight how we need to tolerate as Sadhakas.
    I remember one quote of Radhanath Swami Maharaj in this regards “Its not the big temptations that ruin us but the small one’s ”

    Very nice point explained by HHRNSM to tolerate the titch while remembering Krishna’s names, forms and pastimes. The essence of tolerance as a spiritual experience

    Tolerance is very important not only for Bramhacharis but for all of us as it is the basis of spiritual life.

    I like the point that Celibacy is an open declaration of our desire to love God and render uninterrupted service at all times, in all places and under all circumstances.Thank you for writing this wonderful article.

    To tolerate can be a painful experience sometimes. This can be overcome by remembering the Lord, chanting and immersing ourselves in the devotional service of the Lord.

  71. Abhinav

    Jan 11th, 2013

    Well written article. Its quite important to understand that services can give us inner fulfillment as they make us come to the platform of a servant.

  72. sundarkanai das

    Jan 11th, 2013

    Celibacy in a monks life is not just about tolerance of desires but practical actual engagement in devotional service

  73. Sarang Gadhave

    Jan 12th, 2013

    This article very nicely explains about tolerance as a key to success n spiritual life. Especially a celibate monk has to have this tolerance of controlling the urges of material senses.

    …These services attract the grace of God and the Lord mercifully fills the heart of a monk (for that matter any devotee) with a sweet flavor of spiritual happiness, the type that can’t be matched with anything material. The sense pleasures pale in comparison to the spiritual happiness of Krishna consciousness….Thank you Radhanath Swami Maharaj

  77. sbkasar@yahoo.com

    Yet the challenge remains, and tolerance is the key to face it cheerfully. The Bhagavad Gita, a scripture that the monks study daily, extols the virtue of tolerance. Tolerance of carnal desires which is like an itch helps one avoid many related sufferings that accrue to a gratifier of senses.
    Great one!!

    Tolerance is what makes a person eligible to enetr Kingdom of God.

    The author has given good insight on the day to day life of a celibate monk. Outsiders might know or understand the challenges of the monks but the principles equally apply to them. If married people could only becoem more tolerant; the world would be such a better place to live in. And from thsi articel I udnerstand that to become more tolerant we have to become more spiritual and more dependent on God. Thank you.

    So difficult to develop the trait of Tolerance – a virtue very much to be cultivated to progress in spiritual lives (even in material life too!)

  88. Arun Deshmukh

    Jun 2nd, 2014

    “However tolerance alone can be stressful; besides like a suppressed volcano, our desires may burst off one day and cause huge damage. Therefore Radhanath Swami advises the monks to simultaneously practice remembrance of God, Krishna, while tolerating the itch of various desires. The essence of all rules and regulations of devotional service is to ‘always remember Krishna and never forget Krishna’. As we favorably remember the Lord, the tolerance is no longer painful; it fills the heart with a sweet experience”…. this is essence for those who says tolerance is inferiority, weak side of some one.
