Radhanath Swami on "Supreme Person Is Understood By Service"

Today we are reading from Srimad Bhagvatam, eleventh canto, chapter two. Herein Narada Muni is explaining to Vasudeva, the father of Lord Krishna, a beautiful narration in which the essential truths of spirituality are revealed. It describes how Maharaj Rishabdev who is the great incarnation of the Supreme Lord, took his birth in this world as a son of king Nabhi, who was the descendant of Ägnédhra, who was a descendent of Priyavrat and he ruled this world as a great king and spread the glories of devotional service in all directions.

Developing Happiness

There are spiritual masters who have brought us, His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada, Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur, Gaur Kishor Das Babaji Maharaj, Bhaktivinod Thakur and all of the previous acaryas. They have all, with such humble devotion, made the sacrifice of their very lives, to bring to us, the supreme gift of the mercy of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. And what is that mercy?

No Expectation in service By Radhanath Swami

This is very good example for all of us. It is explained in the Srimad Bhagavatam that when one performs devotional service in material life karma yoga means to work without being attached to the fruit. But in spiritual life it is said in Bhagvatam that when you perform devotional service certain benefits, certain fruits will come from that action of devotional service you should not be attached to that, you should understand it is for Krishna’s enjoyment.
