If there is to be any peace of mind or harmony in this world, forgiveness is absolutely crucial. If we cannot forgive, then there is no possibility of any relationships surviving at any level.
— Radhanath Swami
Born in the United States, Radhanath Swami commenced his incredible spiritual journey at an early age. The 19-year-old Radhanath Swami journeyed from the United States to Europe to India, where he became a sadhu. As a traveling monk, Radhanath Swami crossed paths with spiritual teachers, international leaders, and other pilgrims and discovered all-encompassing inner peace. Radhanath Swami chose Bhaktivedanta Swami as his guru, and became a devoted practitioner of Bhakti yoga. Over the following decades, Radhanath Swami continued to discover his own spiritual identity and to use his knowledge to benefit others. In 2005, a beloved friend and fellow swami prompted Radhanath Swami to write down his story in order to share it with as many people as possible. Out of respect for his friend’s wishes — which were delivered on his deathbed — Radhanath Swami authored The Journey Home: Autobiography of an American Swami. The Journey Home takes readers through Radhanath Swami's growth, tracking in engaging and lucid detail his path to enlightenment and a life of service.

The website features photographs from Radhanath Swami’s journeys as well as press contact information. Radhanath Swami keeps his spiritual headquarters at Radha Gopinath Temple in Chowpatty, India, and uses the location as the center of his humanitarian efforts.
