Spiritual Lectures

Radhanath Swami is a guru, community builder, activist, and author. He has been a Bhakti Yoga practitioner and a spiritual teacher for over 40 years and is the inspiration behind ISKCON’s free midday meal for 1.2 million school kids across India.

Radhanath Swami is a fascinating man.

An American monk, author, spiritual teacher and activist, at age 31 Radhanath Swami took his monastic vows and went on to establish missionary hospitals, eco-friendly farms, and a number of emergency relief programmes. One of which feeds over 250,000 people per day.

A Journey Within

Radhanath has been sought out by some of the most influential leaders on the planet including Mother Theresa, Barack Obama, and the Dalai Lama. His last book, the New York Times best-seller “A Journey Within”, shows us how to solve dilemmas, with the simplest of resources, and uncover miracles in everyday life.

He gives so much, spends most of his time in Mumbai India, and there’s just so much wisdom we can get from this man. I really enjoyed my connection with him, and I know you’re going to love this episode with Radhanath Swami.
