Radhanath Swami

Radhanath-swamiIn this community we are trying in our own small way to give an example to humanity, of how the most fulfilling and productive life is a life based on compassion and respect to all living beings and to mother earth. According to the Bhagavad-gita, we are not proprietors but we are trustees of the gifts of God and nature. When we use these wonderful gifts in a sustainable way in a spirit of compassion, in a spirit of love, with respect to others, not only do we find the deepest fulfillment within, but we can actually be instruments of real positive change in the world.

Srila Prabhupada

Srila-prabhupadaWe can know from this fact that there is a sweet transcendental interrelation between all living entities, irrespective of not only caste, creed, and colour between man and man, but between man and beast, man and birds, man and reptiles, man and plants, etc., and so also between man and God, and between God and others, and so on....as such the [farm] shall be the centre for such supreme culture of knowledge. [It] shall set the example that neither God nor the living being nor Nature is in any way antagonistic toward one another, but that all of them exist in harmony as a complete whole unit.
