Spiritual Questions and Answers with Radhanath Swami

How to love everybody? Radhanath Swami gives the sutra

By on October 15, 2012 in Life with 46 Comments

Love-AllQuestion to Radhanath Swami: I heard somewhere that without loving all the living beings we cannot love God. So I just wanted to know, what is the best possible way in which I can love and serve all the living beings?

 

Answer by Radhanath Swami: By loving God, Krishna. When you water the root of the tree every part of the tree is nourished by that water. So when we learn how to love God, naturally our love extends to every part of God, which is every living being. The example is also given that if we want to feed the various limbs and organs of the body we must give food to the stomach. When we give the proper food to the stomach it is naturally distributed to the hands, the eyes, the brain, the feet, and every tissue of the body. When we learn how to love Radha and Krishna, naturally our love will extend to all living beings without discrimination of sex, sect, caste, religion, nationality or even species. paëòitäù sama-darçinaù.

We cannot love God and not love every living entity. The testimony of the authenticity of our love for God is how it extends to everyone; when we love God, we see a part of God in every heart beyond the superficial differences we saw earlier. But also, in order to achieve that love of God—through the chanting of  God’s names and the practice of bhakti—it is an elementary practice of bhakti to be amäninä mänadena—to honor and respect others and feel oneself the servant of all beings.
