Suffering in RelationshipsQuestion to Radhanath Swami: As you mentioned in your lecture, when we have a lot of expectations from our loved ones or from others, and when those expectations do not get fulfilled, we suffer. So how to come to a platform where we don’t expect anything from others?

Radhanath Swami: We do that by cultivating humility. If we are proud, we feel that we deserve so many good things from so many people. If we are actually humble, we are grateful for whatever happens and for whatever that comes. If you expect something, then even if you get it, you are not really happy; at the most you experience some flickering pleasure in your mind and senses. But if you feel that you don’t deserve it, and then when you get it, you are grateful. And gratitude is real happiness; gratitude is the happiness of the heart.
