Grateful heart (according to Radhanath baba)

Grateful heart (according to Radhanath baba)

According to Radhanath baba, don’t be selective, be grateful for any nonsense quote Radhanath baba serves you. Be grateful for any deviation that he introduces in Prabhupada’s movement. That is the whole idea behind Radhanath’s sheep movement. Follow your counselor, be grateful, and follow Radhanath baba’s nonsense.

This philosophy is completely opposite to Prabhupada’s philosophy. Prabhupada said we should be very selective, and be grateful only to Supreme personality of Godhead, and not for any nonsense.

What grateful soul is there who would not render his loving service to such a great master as the Personality of Godhead? The Lord can be easily pleased by spotless devotees who resort exclusively to Him for protection, though the unrighteous man finds it difficult to propitiate Him. (SB 3.19.36)

Every living entity, especially persons in the human race, must feel grateful for the benedictions offered by the grace of the Supreme Lord. Anyone, therefore, with a simple heart of gratefulness must be Kṛṣṇa conscious and offer devotional service to the Lord. Those who are actually thieves and rogues do not recognize or acknowledge the benedictions offered to them by the Supreme Lord, and they cannot render Him devotional service. Ungrateful persons are those who do not understand how much benefit they are deriving by the arrangement of the Lord. They enjoy the sunshine and moonshine, and they get water free of charge, yet they do not feel grateful, but simply go on enjoying these gifts of the Lord. Therefore, they must be called thieves and rogues. (SB 3.19.36p)

 

One should feel grateful to the Supreme Personality of Godhead for having obtained such a nice human form of body, and one should properly utilize it. The distinction between an animal and a man is that the animal cannot control himself and has no sense of decency, whereas the human being has the sense of decency and can control himself. (SB 3.31.19p)

 

Prabhupāda: When I came to your country first, I had no center, I had no… But who has provided all these hundred temples, big, big palaces, temples? Yoga-kṣemaṁ vahāmy aham (BG 9.22). To remain under the protection of Kṛṣṇa you get so much facility. Why not be grateful to Kṛṣṇa? (break) Practically I was loitering on the street, and He has given me so many sons, so many houses, so many protection. Shall I not feel grateful? Is it not my duty? What is this nonsense? Kṛṣṇa gives everything, and “No, no, I don’t believe in God. God is dead.” All rascals. All rascals. Nonsense rascals. Who denies God, he is a nonsense rascal, immediately. Mūḍha.
