Drink the nectar of the Divine Name Rama and always sit among righteous company….

Nama Article 30th May 2008

Meerabai's Song

Drink the nectar of the Divine Name Rama, O human! Drink the nectar of the Divine Name Rama!

Leave the bad company, always sit among righteous company (Satsangh). Please Hear and listen to the mention of God.

Wash out the thoughts of Concupiscence, anger, pride, greed and attachment from your mind.

Meera's Lord is the Giridhari (Mountain-Holder), the suave lover. Soak yourself in the dye of His color.

(If we follow the first two steps the last two steps are obvious results!)

Transliteration

râma nâma rasa pîjai manuâm, râma nâma rasa pîjai
taja kusanga satsanga baiTha nita, hari carcâ suNa lîjai
kâma krodha mada lobha moha ko, bahâ citta se dîjai
mîrâ ke prabhu giradhara nâgara, tâhi ke rang bhîjai

Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :

I Chant the Divine Names and worship Him who is beyond the reach of thought and speech and yet by whose grace all speech is possible

Nama Article 29th May 2008
 
Ashram Bhajnavali – Transalated by Mahathma Ghandhi
 
In the early morning I Chant the Divine Names and worship Him who is beyond the reach of thought and speech and yet by whose grace all speech is possible.
 
I worship Him whom the Vedas describe as neti neti (not this, not this).
 
Him they, the sages, have called God of gods, the unborn, the unfallen, the source of all.

 

प्रातर्भजामि मनसा वचसामगम्यं

    वाचो विभान्ति निखिला यदनुग्रहेण .

यं नेति नेति वचनैर्निगमा अवोचं

    स्तं देवदेवमजमच्युतमाहुरग्र्यम्

Modern scientific experiments have confirmed that the japa regulates the reciter’s respiration

Nama Article 27th May 2008
 

Modern scientific experiments have confirmed that the japa regulates the reciter's respiration in a way similar to that offered by some of the exercises of pranayamas. It reduces the breathing rate to half its normal average.

 

That means, on an average, one hour's disciplined practice of the japa yoga would augment the life of the sadhaka by about five hundred breaths at least! Japa therefore could also be advised as an important health-exercise.

 

As mentioned earlier, the effects of japa awaken one's inherent virtues that naturally result in an overall improvement in his personality, and amelioration of his physical and mental potentials. These positive effects can be used for noble success in terms of worldly progress as well.

 

It is the willpower and the vision, aroused by the japa that 'transform' the difficult circumstances and obstacles into minor ones in a miraculous manner.

A person says, ‘I am full of faults; yet, my Guru showers me with affection! I know not the reason!’

Nama Article 26th May 2008
 

The one who has earned the affection of the Guru attains to Vaikuntam (Eternal bliss) that is rare even for the Yogis!

 

A person says, ‘I am full of faults; yet, my Guru showers me with affection! I know not the reason!’ Such a person, indeed, attains to Vaikuntam.

 

– His Holiness Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji
