It is most certain that fire burns wood to ashes……….Mahamantra is capable of destroying one’s Karma whatever they may be

Nama Article 24th November 2008
 

Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

 

It is most certain that fire burns wood to ashes.  But if the log of wood is huge, it calls for more fire in the beginning, and that very fire expands and grows itself to burn the log completely.

 

Likewise, Mahamantra is capable of destroying one’s Karma whatever they may be. 

 

To start with, one has to chant more and more without faltering.  That will verily take care of the rest.

Rama is not merely the name of a character in our Itihasas. The entire cosmos reverberates to the tune of Rama Nama only. In fact, the all-pervading Rama Nama existed even before the Universe was formed.

It is rather confusing when you say that Lord Shiva was chanting the Divine Name of Rama. It has been stated in all the scriptures that Lord Shiva existed long before the birth of Lord Rama. Please explain. 

 

Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji:

 

Rama is not merely the name of a character in our Itihasas. It is a Mantra, just like the ‘Pranava’ Mantra (Om). The great Sage Vashishta chanted this mantra for a very long time.

 

Hence he named Dasharata’s first child with the name of his favourite mantra, knowing well that he is verily Lord Vishnu’s incarnation.

 

The entire cosmos reverberates to the tune of Rama Nama only. In fact, the all-pervading Rama Nama existed even before the Universe was formed. So it is incorrect to believe that the Rama Nama came into existence only via Ramayana.
