Radhanath Swami appeared at the at the Arlington Yoga Center (AYC) Saturday morning, October 9th, 2010. He led the program with a traditional Sanskrit chant, or bhajan. He then proceeded to speak on the topic of compassion.
Radhanath Swami explained how one should be compassionate towards each other, to everything, and to everyone. In regard to the Gulf oil spill, he said that if we are not compassionate towards Mother Earth and towards every living entity, then we will continue exploiting all of these for our own selfish desires. He also spoke about vegetarianism and being compassionate to animals.
Around 60 people attended the talk.
Marinda, owner of Arlington Yoga Center, said, “We think very highly of your teacher. I have had so many compliments on the event. The feeling of spiritual community was so wonderful, as was the delicious food. Radhanath Swami did such a great job of sharing spiritual teachings in such a beautiful way. We hope to see him again in the future. Next time he is here Arlington Yoga Center welcomes him. My daughter and I felt a strong connection today.”
