It is impossible for a man to commit as many sins as can be annulled by God’s Name.

Anandamayi Ma

 

By God's Name the pull of evil is vanquished. There is a saying that it is impossible for a man to commit as many sins as can be annulled by God's Name.

 

Just as a single spark of fire can consume more things than you ever able to accumulate, so by the contemplation of the Supreme being, by the endeavor to approach Him, all your sins will be obliterated. The destructible will be destroyed and Reality stand revealed.

If it is even possible for you to make one other person chant the Mahamantra, that is the greatest service you can do to Him

 

After chanting Mahamantra regularly, I can see a change in myself in thinking about God always. I want to serve God in continuation of my Karma and work. How can i serve God? Please advice.

  

Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji:

 

Chanting the Mahamantra itself is a great service to Lord Krishna. Further, if it is even possible for you to make one other person chant the Mahamantra, that is the greatest service you can do to Him.

The only remedy is to put in more and more dedicated and sincere efforts. So continue chanting with strong faith.

Nama Article 26th April 2010

 

Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

 

A person was grinding some grains on a grinding stone. He asked how long the grinding should be done. What is the answer? The grains should be ground until we get flour (‘atta’) out of it. Is it not? There is no fixed time for it.

 

In the same way, the aim of chanting the Mantra is to attain the Siddhi. If you have not yet attained the goal, then it means that you have not put in sufficient effort. The only remedy is to put in more and more dedicated and sincere efforts. So continue chanting with strong faith.

In spirituality, perseverance is paramount. So keep continuing until the goal is reached.

Nama Article 25th April 2010

 

Source: http://www.namadwaar.org/answers/questions.html

 

My goal is to think of the Lord every moment. To achieve this goal I try to chant His name but am not able to do it continuously because it is involved in worldly activities. Kindly show me a practical way to keep thinking of the Lord while we are involved in worldly activities. Is this possible ?

 

Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji:

 

Your goal is wonderful and what you are doing is perfectly right. Where you are going wrong is your expectation to attain that state immediately. Your interest is good; at the same time, you have to understand and accept that this is possible only by regular practice. In spirituality, perseverance is paramount.

 

So keep continuing until the goal is reached.

Restraint, piety and contentment are one’s companions and the sword in the shape of Ramanama is flourishing freely – Sant Kabir

 

Source: "Ashram Bhajnavali" – The version reproduced here is taken from a photostat of the original work in Gandhiji's hand

 

With fight in front a brave person will never flee and he will not be considered brave who flees in the face of danger. In the field of battle the fight has begun in right earnest and passion, anger, pride and ambition are the foes to be fought. Restraint, piety and contentment are one’s companions and the sword in the shape of Ramanama is flourishing freely. Kabir says: True warriors will fight bravely, cowards will be conspicuous by their absence.

 

शूर संग्रामको देख भागै नहीं, देख भागै सोई शूर नाहीं ।।

काम औ’ क्रोध, मद, लोभसे जूझना, मंडा घमसान तहं खेत माहीं ।।

शील औ’ शौच, संतोष साही भये, नाम समसेर तहं खूब बाजे ।।

कहै कबीर  कोई जूझि है शूरमा, कायरां भीड तहं तुरत भाजै ।।

Do not give way to self-deception but sing the praises of God

 

Source: "Ashram Bhajnavali" – The version reproduced here is taken from a photostat of the original work in Gandhiji's hand

 

Do not give way to self-deception but sing the praises of God; for eyes are given to see God, ears to hear words of wisdom, the mouth to sing His praises, hands to give in His name.

 

Kabir says: Hear O ye good one, gold mine is for producing gold (not merely dust and pebble).

 

मत कर मोह तू हरि-भजनको मान रे ।

नयन दिये दरसन करनेको, श्रवण दिये सुन ज्ञान रे ।।

वदन दिया हरिगुण गानेको, हाथ दिये कर दान रे ।।

कहत कबीर सुनो भाई साधो, कंचन निपजत खान रे ।।
