Krishna can be realized only by pure love. That love, can sprout only by his grace. His grace descends when we chant the Mahamantra. Mechanical chanting is the only starting point we can attempt. It matures to love by grace.

We usually remember God when we go through tough times in our lives. Isn't this like 'latching' on to God to escape the reality of the situation? Were God and His forms created (or invented) to help people in distressed situations? Is there really a Krishna or a Vishnu? If so, how are they different from the ultimate truth?

 

Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

 

God is 'what is'. We can’t 'latch' on to God to escape 'what is'! God and his forms were certainly not created for convenience! Whatever is real is Krishna! Are you for real?

 

The real 'reality' in you is Krishna. Like light is both a particle and a wave and exhibits its property depending on the context! Krishna is with a beautiful form and beyond form in the same token. This is not what intellect is trained to see. So it refuses to accept.

 

Krishna is indeed beyond our little intellect. Krishna can be realized only by pure love. That love, can sprout only by his grace. His grace descends when we chant the Mahamantra. Mechanical chanting is the only starting point we can attempt. It matures to love by grace.

Chanting the Divine Name can by ‘Itself’, sans any other sãdhana, bestow God’s darshan to a person anywhere.

Nama Article 27th May 2009

 

Swami Papa Ramdas

 

‘Nãma’ (Divine Name) can by ‘Itself’, sans any other sãdhana, bestow God’s darshan to a person anywhere. This writer can vouchsafe that the Divine Name itself is enough for one to mingle in the ocean of limitless Love and Joy. No other sãdhana is as easy to follow by all, as God’s Divine Name and at the same time attain God. How true are the words of a Mahan that the one on whose tongue God’s Divine Name resides is verily the one who has been freed from bondage –a Jivan Mukta!

 

Therefore, my dear friends! Be you of any caste, creed, faith or colour – chant the ‘Nãma’ of God and experience that sweet relationship. Your soul, drowned in the nectar of ‘Nãma’ would not only be purified but is also certain that it would shine with the omniscient and omnipresent God’s Divine Light and Love. The practice of chanting the Divine Name constantly makes the unruly mind a slave to God’s Divine Will and strength.

Chanting the Mahamantra will make your mind quiet and will bring ‘manolaya’ or calmness of your mind.

I am not able to concentrate my mind when I sit for meditation or pooja. Some unnecessary thoughts come to my mind and disturb me. How do I get rid of them?

 

Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji:

 

For a few days, chant the Mahamantra loudly in the mornings and evenings. That will make your mind quiet and bring ‘manolaya’ or calmness of your mind.

 

That will help you get the required concentration to do mediation.

There is no other best satsang than the Divine Name of the Lord. That is the greatest shelter one can get.

Though I am praying to God always and participate in Nama Sankirtanam, Bhajan, Sahasranamam, Tiruppugazh etc., after attending few days in between, again the laziness creeps in.  When I am not attending the Bhajan etc., my mind also becomes sad and I get troubled with confusion. How do I overcome this laziness and have a regular satsang to be happy always? 

 

Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji:

 

There is no other best satsang than the Divine Name of the Lord.

 

That will be equivalent to all the bhajans and satsangs you attend traveling far and wide.  Stay in your home and chant the Mahamantra always.  That is the greatest shelter one can get. 

 

When you chant the Mahamantra continuously, your laziness will also go away.

There is no distinction between the Divine Name and the Divinity Himself; for the Name is the invaluable wish fulfilling gem that has come down to this earth as an incarnation of the blissful consciousness of the Divinity.

One should always chant His name. Even while one is performing one’s duties, the mind should be left with God.

Nama Article 14th May 2009

 

Source: The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna

 

God is realized by following the path of truth. One should always chant His name. Even while one is performing one's duties, the mind should be left with God.

 

Suppose I have a sore on my back. I perform my duties, but the mind is drawn to the sore.
