Rama in the Form of the Divine Name ‘RAMA’ redeems all – even the worst sinner

 

Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

 

What is Bhagavata dharma? Showing the way to the Almighty even to the lowliest of the lowly is Bhagavata dharma. Vaideeka dharma is very strict in its discipline. It curses people who do not follow the scriptures, to hell. But Bhagavata dharma shows the way even to a sinner. Thus, ‘Ahalya sapavimochana’ (lifting of the curse on Ahalya) is Bhagavata dharma.

 

The Divine Name of the Lord ('Bhagavan Nãma') has the power to redeem one and all. Was not Ajamila, the worst sinner, redeemed for the mere uttering of the Divine Name? He had named his youngest son 'Narayana' (the Divine Name of the Lord). He was deeply attached to this son. At the last moment of his life he called out 'Narayana!' addressing the son. But it was enough for the deeply Compassionate Lord. He saved Ajamila. Ahalya was redeemed from the curse and made immaculate by the dust of the Holy Feet of Rama. And, in today's world Rama still exists in the form of His Divine Name 'R A M A'! 'Name' and the 'Named' are one and the same. They are not different from each other. So, would not Rama in the Form of the Divine Name 'RAMA' redeem all – even the worst sinner?
