June 19, 2010 - PRLog -- The clamor ebbs away and everyone in the crowd looks in a single direction, rapt in awe and reverence. This is a scene in the front courtyard of Radha Gopinath Temple, ISKCON Chowpatty, on a Sunday afternoon. It’s Radhanath Swami, the spiritual head of the temple, who has grabbed the attention of everyone present. Earlier he had discoursed to an audience of two thousand in a hall on the first floor.

In 1986 he started his work in India: teaching spirituality in colleges; counseling people in imbibing spirituality for a satisfying life; initiating charity programs like free medical camps and free food; and in recent years, authoring spiritual books. Over the years his following has increased, now consists of thousands—mainly Indians.

Dr. Hosangadi, retired Head of the Department of Chemistry, Bombay University, says, “Sometimes people ask me whether I feel awkward while learning Indian spirituality from an American. But if they meet Radhanath Swami even once, that question would evaporate: Radhanath Swami is more spiritual than any Indian I have ever met in my life.”

If anyone from any part of the world sincerely applies himself on the spiritual path, he is assured of success and he can lead others to spiritual success. Radhanath Swami is an example.”
