Journey to Spiritual Places with Radhanath Swami

Radhanath Swami on Significance of the tears of devotees

on July 15, 2014 in Mayapur Articles with 22 Comments

“Our acaryas teach us, that the incessant tears of Saci Devi, the incessant tears of Vishnupriya the tears of all the devotees in Navadvipa, those tears of separation by the Lord’s own will, were meant to wash away the sins, wash away the darkness of ignorance of the whole world, so that Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu could freely travel and reach even the most difficult people and give then Krishna Prema through Krishna Nama.” 

Lord Caitanya told Lord Nityananda Prabhu that when the sun enters the northern direction I’ll go to Kantaka Nagar and take sannyasa from Keshav Bharati Maharaj. Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu understood that His acceptance of sannyasa was going to cause such devastation to His devotees that for the next few days He continuously performed the most blissful kirtan that everyone forgot that He was going to take sannyasa.

    H.H. Radhanath Swami has the capability to suck the hearer into the pastime thanks to his own absorption in Lord. More important is the change of heart that comes about after that to thousands of his followers. This can only be possible by his living example.

    H.H.Radhanath Swami is truly a saint who walks his talk
