Simple living (as explained by Radhanath baba)

Simple living (as explained by Radhanath baba)

One more brilliant quote taken from baba’s book “The Journey within” and often quoted on the internet by his disciples and Radhanath baba posted it on his facebook page. As usual, we took the liberty to insert most appropriate photo.

Contrary to this nonsense, Prabhupada was very practical in his explanation what is simple living:

“The devotee’s life should be yāvad artha-prayojanam. We require material necessities as much as it is required, no artificial life. That is spiritual life. Simply increasing artificial life, even for shaving, a big machine is required. What is this? Simply wasting time. Devil’s workshop. Make life very simple. And simple living, high thinking, and always conscious to go back to home, back to Kṛṣṇa. That is life. Not this life, that simply machine, machine, machine, machine. So if you show practical example that how you are living simple life and how you are advanced in Kṛṣṇa consciousness, then people will learn from you.” (Lecture on SB 6.1.49 — New Orleans Farm, August 1, 1975)

Letter to Radha Krishna Dhawan — Honolulu 10 June, 1975: Yes, we are trying to set a perfect example according to the Bhagavad-gita as it is, how to execute simple living and high thinking. We are not interested in any material comforts of life which are limited and temporary. We are interested in solving the real problems of life, birth, death, old-age, and disease. These problems must be solved, and Krishna gives the formula in the Bhagavad-gita. So, we are preaching that simple formula given by Krishna, and people are trying it and finding real happiness in life, therefore the Hare Krishna movement is an undeniable success.

Do you see the difference between Radhanath baba’s nonsense and the power of real acarya?

Now, do me favor, go through all quotes about simple living on vaniquotes and find me one quote where Prabhupada mentions “well-wishing heart” nonsense. You will find that Prabhupada didn’t mention “well-wishing heart” even once. Even dog has a well-wishing heart.

  • Nishtha Purna Das

    Prabhupad used to end his letters with ‘Your ever well-wisher”. I guess because he had a well-wishing heart that’s why. What are you doing these days with Radhanath Swami quotes? You posted one article about his quotes and that’s it. Why everyday make a separate article about his quotes like chanting maha mantra daily? Why are you wasting your and our time with these? How does it matter? Nobody is interested. We expect better from you. Please maintain standard like you were doing. You are filling your website with nonsense and garbage. Stop it plz or someone will ban you from your website and claim it to continue some good work.

    • Hrvoje Marjanovic

      Prabhupada had well wishing heart, but that has nothing to do with simple living. And real well wisher like Prabhupada preached real philosophy which can actually help conditioned souls.

      😀 Nobody is interested? I have 500 visitors per day since I started publishing these funny quotes.

      Someone will ban me from my own website? How is that supposed to happen? Do you get this idea from one of Radhanath baba’s quotes? Radhanath baba could make quote like this: “If you don’t have a well wishing heart, you could ban yourself from your own website.” 😀 😀 😀

      Do me a favor, tell baba that I will post whatever I like on my website, funny quotes included.

      If you don’t like, if you think that these great posts are not interesting to you, that these are garbage, here is a website you can visit, which contains a lot of jewels: http://www.radhanathswamiquotes.com/

      😀 😀 You loser. Instead of defending Prabhupada’s legacy and fighting against fake babas, you want to stop Prabhupada’s followers in doing the right thing, and that is fighting nonsense. Shame on you.

      • Nishtha Purna Das

        Hey Mr. Winner… Shame on me, the loser and all glories to Hanuman, the defender of Prabhupada legacy. Just because you are having 500 visitors per day you wanted to turn into a joker? Posting funny things? Is this why we subscribed to your website? To get funny nonsense stuff? These are not funny, these are nonsense. I’m not talking about Srila Prabhupad quotes, I’m talking about Radhanath Swami quotes and you’re spending time propagating it. Post something nice to run your website Mr. Winner, we are your viewers and we don’t like to read Radhanath Swami quotes on your page daily. We don’t give a damn on what he says and where. If we had to read his quotes we would go to his page. We don’t want your purport on his quotes daily. Read again. We don’t care about Radhanath swami quotes. If you want to document your purport on his quotes just do it in one page and keep things together and keep adding there rather making one new posts daily unless you want your website to turn into a “ISKCON meme” or Iskcon comedy central. We are your viewers and readers and we can have our opinions and suggestions. Go to any popular Youtube channels and see comments how viewers state their opinions and put suggestions. You should appreciate our honest feedback and opinion rather criticize us. When I’m using “us” or “we” I’m talking about a lot of people. I can name them. But you don’t know them, so it’s no use. Take it as a feedback and say “ok I’ll try to do better to serve”. “I’ll make one page with all my collection of Radhanath Swami quotes and my purport on it and keep sharing the page on facebook so that everything is in one place”. “I won’t torture my readers with these everyday”. “I’ll spare the world and I’ll make it a better place to live by not turning my website into Radhanath Swami Memes”. Finally if you are a Prabhupada follower also please share some nice pastime of Krishna. Prabhupad will be happy. And this is reader feedback, You have no right to say against it. All glories to Hanuman, the defender of Dharma.

          Ok, I will stop posting baba’s quotes just to make you happy. I agree posting them is type of torture, even with funny pictures.

          • Makhana Cora

            Hard Krishna!

          • Nishtha Purna Das

            @Makhana Cora: I thought sastras say that Krishna’s body is as soft as butter. Not ‘Hard’. 😁🤣

          • Nishtha Purna Das

            Awww… so kind of you dear Hanu prabhu. Take a hug.

        • Hrvoje Marjanovic

          I contacted meme designer who doesn’t agree to stop publishing the work which was already produced. So, real solution would be that @nishthapurnadas:disqus and @makhanacora:disqus don’t visit my website for the next week or so. Until I release all the funny stuff which is already produced and prepared.
