Radhanath Swami’s Radha Gopinath Temple Community – An Offering to Srila Prabhupada
For the benefit of those skeptical minds that complain of a Vedic approach to marriages as too idealistic and impractical, we bring to spotlight a closely knit and successful community of Krishna devotees in Mumbai, India. This community was envisioned by Radhanath Swami back in 1986 when he began the Radha Gopinath Temple project in the heart of this metropolis. He gave impetus to the idea of a community by way of family or marriage counseling. To enable this, over a period of many years, Radhanath Swami personally trained his senior disciples who later took the role of Lifestyle Counselors. Today, twenty-five years later, a strong and vibrant community of Radha Gopinath Temple speaks volumes of Radhanath Swami’s vision and his guiding principles of successful married life. Amongst Radhanath Swami’s numerous contributions to society, this spiritual community is one of the best. The community consists of people from varied states, languages, social background and cultures yet everyone is united around the principle of service to God and service to one another.
Vedic marriages of ancient India—far from being lifetime imprisonments guarded by social norms—were sacred bondings that gifted friends for life.
Hundreds of families who are part of this community, inspired deeply by Radhanath Swami’s teachings, individually and collectively practice Vedic principles in their daily lives and display to the society at large how Vedic principles of spirituality, beyond being merely an add-on to one’s life, can be a way to a family life of lasting satisfaction.
We request you to pause, and consider: the know-how’s of happy married life that new-age marriage counselors market may only be an eye-blink in an unexplored expanse of Vedic mastery over the subject.
