Nama Article 4th June 2009

 

Haripath – Sant Gnyaneshwar

 

Meaning

 

You may take a bath In the confluence of the three holy rivers; You may visit all the sacred pilgrimage places;

But if your mind does not always rest In the name of the Lord, All your efforts are in vain.

 

He is very foolish who turns away From remembrance of God’s name;

When the soul is drowning in misery, Who else but God will rush to its aid?

 

Valmiki , who is the highly respected, legendary poet-sage, Has proclaimed the value of chanting god’s name;

“The Name,” he says, is the one trustworthy means for salvation in all the three worlds.”

Jnanadev says: Please chant Hari’s name; The entire clan of those who recite His name gets purified.

Abhang

त्रिवेणी संगमी नाना तीर्थे भ्रमी

चित्त नाही नामी तरी ते व्यर्थ

नामासी विन्मुख तो नर पापीया

हरिविण धावया पावे कोणी

पुराणप्रसिद्ध बोलिले वाल्मिक

नामे तिन्ही लोक उद्धरती

ज्ञानदेव म्हणे नाम जपा हरिचे

परंपरा त्याचे कुळ शुद्ध
