When the heart is pure when there is love of god awakened then compassion for every living being becomes our inherent nature what is more desperately needed in this world than the loving compassionate hearts, hearts that are humble tolerant forgiving respectful to all. Hearts that are actually well wishing hearts to our friends and our enemy that is the natural our soul that is what naturally comes about through the awakening of love of god – Radhanath Swami.
