Chandraveer says:

God has given the free will to choose in our life. If we make the right choices, we will become a good person in life. Wisdom by spiritual literatures and saints help us to make the right choice. Wonderful Talk!

What a giant phony. He doesn’t even mention chanting Hare Krishna.

Krishna Negi says:

Just wanna take the time to thank the wonderful audiences for understanding and being compassionate!

Hotel Greenland says:

All I would say after hearing his talks and reading his latest book – The Journey Within (NYT Best Seller), is that there is great wisdom to learn from spiritual literatures and lives of True saints.

I frequently hear Swami’s talks to be focused in true goal of life.
Thanks TEDx for arranging such talks.

Chandraveer Gurjar says:

Swami speaks very relevant but still sublime message! I feel to implement the teachings of wisdom literatures he quotes from in my life and raise my life to higher standard and knowledge.

I ordered his latest NYT Best seller "The Journey Within", will start soon to read it.
Thanks TEDx for inviting him.

Fatjoni Tepshi says:

People should never be "whole" its an evolutionary drive idiot. If people are "whole" they and their progress stagnates.
I say may you never be satisfied always be thirsty always be hungry , because these are the very things that got you out of your cave of misery.

Compassion’s the key. Hare Krishna

Christopher Debattista says:

In a world shrunken by digital connections are we still nourishing the right connections in our lives and in society? ..Rightly said. We’re losing connection with the true essence of love. God is Love in himself. God does not give only Love, but he is love. And this is because love itself contains justice and compassion beyond our understanding. There are many spirits, but which one is the right one. One is entitled to his/her opinion but if opinion only exists to accommodate one’s lifestyle, it does not reflect the pursuit of truth. Sometimes truth makes you uncomfortable and indeed, the Christian lifestyle is the most persecuted in the world to the extend of having a counter cult……Satanism. Jesus is the truth the way and the light. I know I might be hated for saying this, but its part of my faith. I am only sharing…….not shoving……peace be unto you.

Thanks for the speech and sharing the video🙏🏻

eric5906 says:

For all our newbies & people who don’t know about Radhanath’s scary past, Google Radhanatha+New Vrndavana. Get a copy of Monkey on a Stick. He is accused of some very dirty things like helping his friend, Kirtanananda conduct money laundering, drug running & ordering murders. He sure can put up a great act, though.

Prashant Edassery says:

Essentially human beings make use of n give importance to only buddhi (intellect). But in yoga it’s only one part of the human mind, the other 3 parts being the ahankara(identity), manas(memory) n chitta( consciousness ). Ahankara is not ego as it’s falsely understood, it means what you identity with for e.g. your religion, nationality, role etc. Memory has 16 sub divisions n is not limited to the memory of the mind, it includes the blueprint etched in your DNA over a period of time. And lastly consciousness or the boundless, that which is life itself.
The education imparted today is sadly equipped to handle n understand only the intellect. The whole conditioning is to compete for a better lifestyle n not Life itself. Therefore, it limits n stunts the understanding of human nature which is so boundless n immensely beautiful.
