Positive opportunity (according to Radhanath baba)

Positive opportunity (according to Radhanath baba)

Here, Radhanath’s baba is trying to teach us very important lesson. Successful person sees “positive opportunity” in everything. Something to learn. But what is there to learn? This can be whatever you imagine it to be. I mean Prabhupada was very straightforward, he said material world is not a place for gentleman, and that we need to get out of it. Material world is full of danger on every step, dukhalayam asasvatam. And we have only one thing to learn in this material world, and that is that we need to become devotee of Krishna and go Back to Godhead.

But Radhanath baba will never tell you this simple truth, rather, he will say the we need to see “positive opportunity”. 😀 😀 😀 😀 Prabhupada said that there is nothing positive about this material world. Now, here are a few quotes, which prove that baba is preaching completely opposite from Prabhupada:

In the Vedānta-sūtra it is said that athāto brahma jijñāsā. This human form of life should feel frustration. If he does not feel frustration, then it is animal life. The symptom of human life is that he should be very much pessimistic, not optimistic, of this material world. Then there is path of liberation. And if we think that we are very much happy here, that is called illusion, māyā. Nobody is actually happy here. But if anyone wrongly thinks that he is happy, that is called māyā, illusion. (Ratha-yatra — San Francisco, July 5, 1970)

So there is no question of happy life within this material world. This is to be understood first. Very pessimistic. Those who are intelligent, they are very pessimistic. Even materially they are pessimistic. They are living some standard of life. “This is not good.” There are many houses very low and cottage, so people think that “This is not very good life. Let us have very nice building.” So this struggle is going on. That is human nature, that unless, until he approaches the final post or platform of happiness, he is not happy. That is called struggle for existence and survival of the fittest. So sura and devatā means those who are trying to reach the ultimate goal of life where happiness is guaranteed, one who is trying for that, he is called sura, devatā. And one who is satisfied with this temporary so-called happiness, he is called asura. That is the difference. (Lecture on BG 16.7 — Tokyo, January 27, 1975)

    But isn’t it true that a devotee of the Lord can see an opportunity to serve and remember Krishna in the any situation that life may present to us?

    So in that sense every opportunity becomes a positive opportunity to remember Krishna.

      He won’t agree with you. He doesn’t even agree with himself. He promised me 2 days ago that posting these quotes with his self-made purports are torture. And he’ll stop doing it (screenshot posted above or below with my other comment). But he is still doing it. When I asked he told me to go to dandavats.com. I told him I’m a big fan of his website. But he has no regards for his fans or readers. He asked be to go away. How heart breaking it was for me you’ve no idea. I told him that since his website is pupular he should also start sharing some nectar Krishna pastimes. That would help people growing love for Krishna. What did I say wrong? Nothing. He ignored totally. That’s how he treats his readers and subscribers. I’m so heart broken. Whyuaaaa….. 😭😭😭

        I am tired of your nonsense, I explained to you already that memes will continue because many people complained about your request to stop them.

        And posting like 5 comments per day with same point is called trolling. Now I am going to block you, because you are wasting my time with stupid questions which you repeat all the time.

          3 days ago you told me you won’t post Radhanath Swami memes, but kept posting. And just 6 hours ago I saw you explained why you’ll continue posting those. I never received any explanation of why you continued posting even though you told me you won’t. Now the above comment is also made 6 hours ago. Means your explanation and above comment was done at the same time. So basically you never explained anything to me, and when you did, you already blocked me. Very manipulative. Huh Hanuman? Not very truthful. You’re not an honest person I can see. You manipulate to show that your hands are clean. If you’re dishonest then Prabhupada will never be happy with you. Fine. If you want I will go away from your website with this lasting impression that you’re also a cheater. You removed my other comment. Hope you’ll keep this one for people to see. And talking about repeating things, your whole website is repeated content. And you’re the troll master. I had no such motivation. Anyway bye.
