Radhanath Swami on a fatal disease

How many of us have contracted some kind of disease?!

And, how many of us have contracted a fatal disease?!

Nobody is an exception to the former rule. But, we would withdraw with fear to be in the latter list.

But those of us, by the causeless mercy of Krsna who have come in contact with Krsna devotees in proper sampradaya have contracted a fatal disease.

H H Radhanath Swami says that Krsna Consciousness is a disease. In fact, it is a fatal disease. Once you contract it, it is there. And slowly but surely, whether you know it or not, it is going to kill all your material conceptions. Just like today there is a disease called HIV Virus and when it becomes advanced to the stage of AIDS, it is dangerous. When you contract it, sometimes, you don’t even know, you have it – for 5, 10 years and sometimes up to 15 years. You just go on with your business. Everything is normal but little do you know, inside, something is happening. The virus is there and you can never get it out. And slowly but surely, without your any understanding, it is killing, your particular type of immune system and it is killing your life.

Radhanath Swami on Krsna Consciousness as disease H H Radhanath Swami adds that, similarly, when we come in contact with saintly people, when we hear from them, when we take their mahaprasad, then the contagious disease of bhakti enters into our heart and whether we know it or not, it begins to slowly but surely, vanquish all of our illusion, all of our ignorance, and all of our worldly attachments. And when the symptoms begin to become manifest, at that time, the desire to surrender to God awakens in our heart. The perfect example is that of Sri Narada. He came in contact with some Bhaktivedantists, heard from them, honored their mahaprasadam and he contracted the fatal disease of Krsna Consciousness. And his disease took him to the point of complete surrender unto the Lord!!!
