  1. Thank you for this story from the archives. I found it very moving and inspiring.
    Is the rosary that Padre Pio blessed still at the Ashram?

  2. In contemplating Swami Radha’s feelings of being inadequate because of all the “bad things” she had done in her past, as she has usually only spoken of her past in general ways. An example she once made was how she had misused money and would flauntingly waste it. Knowing her modesty, I expect that the examples she gave were only the tips of the iceberg, so to speak. So when she says she needed Padre Pio’s confirmation that she was WORTHY of doing the spiritual assignment that Swami Sivananda had clarified and stated was for her in being a sannyasin (spiritual teacher), this is of great significance.
    This audio autobiographical story is a great help to me on my own path, in helping me to understand my own place in the processes of growth and responsibility. Thank you for sharing this beautiful heartfelt talk by Swami Radha.

  3. Correction: In contemplating Swami Radha’s feelings of being inadequate because of all the “bad things” she had done in her past, as she has usually only spoken of her past in general ways, I am moved to deeper insight.
