SEREMBAN - Witnessing the meeting of two great souls shows us in Malaysia what real love really is. HH Jayapataka Swami squeezed in a very special visit out of his hectic schedule to meet his very good friend, Iskcon Malaysia President, HH Bhakti Vrajendrananadana Swami who had miraculously recovered the third time the doctors were almost helpless as to what to do and that he was practically gone.
It is simply amazing watching how HH Jayapataka Swami takes so much trouble despite his physical disability and busy schedule to simply meet another soul. HH Bhakti Vrajendranandana Maharaj's heart is soft as a rose petal and he relishes memories of meetings with Srila Prabhupada and his god-siblings and the pastimes like no other. Try telling him why he is always repeating these nostalgic moments and you will see tears roll from his eyes. And in this meeting, it has brought so much tears to us just watching them and I realize that this is what real love truly is.
"Love means sacrifice. Love means service. As long as we have an individual, personal, egoistic desire to enjoy, there is going to be conflict, and then we cannot wholeheartedly love each other." - HH Radhanath Swami
