Radhanath Swami is a respected spiritual teacher. He is a Bhakti Yoga practitioner for 40 years, a community builder, philanthropist, and author. He was born and raised in Chicago, at age 19, and discovered India’s Mystical devotional tradition. He presently teaches messages of love and compassion around the world. “In giving we receive”. The spirit of being a teacher is to relieve people from suffering and improve their quality of life.
“A good teacher should nourish a student’s consciousness. People need encouragement, they need guidance, and they need wisdom”.W
hen we help in cultivating a genuine practice of service and rich inner life of self-awareness, we can become agents of positive change and instruments of compassion in the world. We should care about the people we teach when taking the position of a teacher. Nourishing the consciousness of a student should be one of the major responsibilities of a good teacher. I’ve found in my life and the life of others, that when we care about the life of a person and pray to be an instrument of God’s grace to the person, grace that is so far beyond our own can come through us.
The art of Yoga should be learned to full knowledge, but should be used in the spirit of compassion, to express love and care.

e primarily aim to facilitate a transformation and a journey of awakening based on the teachings of Bhagavad Gita. It is believed that in Bhagavad Gita, Lord Krishna is the original Master of Yoga and when you become conscious of him, you can revive your spiritual nature. We don’t see ourselves as ordinary teachers but as facilitators in the beauty of inner awakening. We also aim to love and serve all those that go beyond the range or limit of nationality, culture, race, gender, and species.
