Aug 31 2011 Vaishnava Compassion

By Niranjana Swami

Thinking of Srila Prabhupada and Srimati Radharani, we naturally think of their compassion. Srila Prabhupada said that Radharani represents Krishna's compassionate nature, and Srila Prabhupada is a manifestation of hers. Now, as we approach Sri Radhastami, I would like to share two complimentary talks that Niranjana Swami and I gave last year after Vyasa-puja, on Vaishnava compassion. —Giriraj Swami
