    Wonderful analogy of our lives to the Ganges and the radio station. True, our body is constantly undergoing change like the waves of the Ganges but ultimately will disappear as it is temporary. We should tune into the spiritual energy of the Lord to purify ourselves instead of tuning into material energy and contaminating ourselves. That is why association of devotees, hearing and chanting is so important.

    “If we tune into the Lord through satsanga, meditation, chanting of the Holy Names, we can experience God manifesting in our hearts; we get purified by that experience”
    Very true statement

    Sripada Shankaracharya describes this body to be a beautiful candle where the flame represents the time. Just as the candle melts every moment and in due course disappears, this body is undergoing a transition every moment and will eventually disappear.

    Everything is temporary. Just like every moment kids want something else and their desire to play with different kind of toys gets changes.But at the end of the day they have to choose the best amongst those toys with which he can play with joy.We also have to decide what exactly is our goal of life.

    It is amazing to see how Radhanath Swami sees the message of God equally clearly, whether he is in the holy place of Rishikesh or the city of Mumbai, overflowing with passion and ignorance. Thank you for bringing out the crucial lesson – our decision to tune into respective energies affects us in that way.

    Radhanath Swami spent so much time in the Himalayas and learnt so many things from so many Gurus, Yogis and people he met.

    This thought perfectly captures the essence of life: Nature is permanent like the current of Ganga but all manifestations of her are constantly changing.

    The reflections of Radhanath Swami are very enriching and refreshing to my mind. He derives such beautiful lessons from simple things of nature and day today life which is very touching to my heart. Thank you for sharing your wisdom.

    Respected Maharaj,

    The wonderful creation in nature and the transformation that is taking place every moment has been aptly described by you.

    I do agree with the realisation that we get purified, if we tune into God. However, if we tune into the lower modes of ignorance and passion, we get contaminated.

    Maharaj, we pray that under your able guidance and your causeless mercy, we will be able to progress in Krishna Consciousness.

    Very wonderful analogy with television here. We have access to many frequencies but at the same time we have the free will to tune in to any one of them, beneficial or harmful.

    “always think of me, Krsna” “Whatever state we are in at the time of death, we get into that in our next birth” Think of Krsna and go back to Him. All glories to HH Radhanatha Svami Maharaja and his followers.

    Mother Ganges has always been with Radhanath Swami throughout his adventurous voyage.


    Mar 28th, 2013

    Therefore we call her as MOTHER Ganga….as she is the mother of devotion, she is charnamrita of Lord Vamandev.

    I am amazed at the analogy given by HH Radhanath Swami. This analogy makes it so easy to udnerstand that whatever we tune into; with whoever we associate we become like that. Fo rmaking progress in spriitual life; we must associate with people who are more spiritually adbvanced than us.Thanks!

    Hari Bol Devis and Prabhus

    The start of my day which at first seems to be bleak and boring because of being overpowered by the immense power of maya devi, but then comes the divine nectar of maha mantra.. flooding my day with full of divine love and a sense of protectionism which makes me feel… ‘Whatever may come, I will face it with the divine power of maha mantra knowing very well that as I chant the maha mantra Lord Krishna manifests in the form of sound’

    Thank You for sharing Radhanath Swami’s Realizations about the TV channels ,the different frequencies around us. Personally I always like it.It is very nice message that we use our free will that means we have to tune to spiritual channel to nourish our devotional experiences.
