    Dear Reader,

    Radhanath Swami has been a great inspiration in my life. He is one of the persons whom I cherish the most. When his words enter my hears it takes away all the anxieties, stress etc. which are difficult to overcome. People take anti-depressant tablets to try and overcome the pressure the face in their daily life but Radhanath Swami can take that away from you within seconds. His other sites like http://radhanathswamiweekly.com also carry some amazing stuff which you must go through to get more inspiration in life.

    Radhanath Swami Maharaj’s life is indeed very exemplary as borne by his book Journey Home. His quotes posted on http://radhanathswamiquotes.com are also very inspiring & thought provoking

    Radhanath Swami is great Vaishnav saint who always “practices what he preaches”.In my individual experience I have watched many great saintly personalities across faiths but none could match the Purity in Values which Radhanath Swami carries.He “walks his talk” as they say in Management jargon. You can learn more about him on http://radhanathswami.org/Radhanath_Swami_Gallery.html

    “The Journey Home” is inspiring and it shows that spiritualism is not a shallow faith but a deep faith with determind attitude of the seeker.

    The autobiography of Radhanath Swami is a gem of a book which will bring a lot of positivity in our life & teach us to how to face different situations in life with grace & determination. It will also definitely lead to inner fulfillment of our higher consciousness & help us to be a better person.

    After reading the ‘Journey Home’ I can say that I was fortunate to get it as gift from my friend. It is really marvelous read. In today’s society we see that many people do not care about God and create suffering for themselves and others because of exploiting mentality. Here in this book we find that how God reciprocates with those who want to know him. The spiritual Journey of HH Radhanath Swami Maharaj depicts from start to end that how God helps those who really want to know Him.

    I can also see that what wonders a sincere soul can do for humanity. The sincere desire of Radhanath Maharaj to know God and to follow on the path leading to kingdom of God has not only brought Radhanath Maharaj to the most sublime path but while walking on this path Maharaj is helping hundreds and thousands in true sense – by making them happy.

    My heartfelt thanks to HH Radhanath Maharaj for sharing such nectar with the world.

    At the end I can just say that “Journey Home is thrilling story and most amazing part of it is it is Real……….THIS IS A MUST READ FOR ALL”

    No one I know of could put this book down before reading through it completely. One thing is certain – God does guide one if one is willing to listen. An amazing book by Radhanath Swami. No wonder everyone – all over the world – is talking about this book and this person.

    Radhanath Swami is a spiritual leader, author, and public speaker. A practitioner of bhakti-yoga for almost 40 years, he helps individuals find greater inner fulfillment through devotional service.At the age of only nineteen, Radhanath Swami left his home in America seeking adventure and spiritual knowledge. After trekking across Europe for months, Swami Radhanath reached his long hoped for destination: India. After living there for many years as a sadhu or wandering monk, Radhanath returned to America in order to share the sacred knowledge and wisdom he had learned from the many holy men and women he had met there. It was an extraordinary choice, given what Radhanath had survived to get there: a journey filled with bizarre characters, mystical experiences, and dangerous adventures. The story is recounted in his recently published memoir The Journey Home – Autobiography of an American Swami. Reviewers have called Radhanath’s saga “at once an engaging yarn, a love story, and the evocation of a transcendent paradise in all its savagery, solitude, and splendor.

    Radhanath Swami emerged from his years of travel wanting to explain for others the beauty and rewards of a life devoted to God, and therein lay a dilemma. Radhanath Swami’s many followers and friends describe him as completely selfless and consequently unwilling to take credit for his work and restless when a spotlight is focused on him. By choosing A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami (1896-1977), a Bengali Vaishnava Saint, as his guru (after declining offers of initiation from several tyagis or renunciants in the Himalayas), Radhanath Swami cast his fate to the wind, cut his matted locks, and entered back into the society.

    RadhanathMaharaj.net gives us a complete collection of the teaching of Radhanath Swami. Teachings consists of Transcriptions of lectures delivered by Radhanath Swami at various places. This website is to inspire the followers of Radhanath Swami to practice the philosophy of Vaishanavism.i love guru maharaj very much
