HAPPY THANKSGIVING: Radhanath Swami on gratitude


Of all disgraceful behavior, there is nothing worse than in gratitude.

Loving service is the means to show our gratitude.

Gratitude is to honour, recognise and appreciate everyone and everything for a higher purpose.

Any real civilization is based on the principles of respect and gratitude. On the basis of that respect and gratitude, there is morality, charity, and compassion.

Gratitude doesn’t means simply saying thank you. Real gratitude means reciprocation. If we are actually grateful to someone, we will reciprocate even if it means great sacrifice.

- Radhanath Swami
