Living even for a moment uttering Krishna’s Name makes one’s life fruitful.

Nama Article 27th September 2010

 

Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

 

A lifespan of thousand years is but useless for one if he does not utter Krishna's name.

 

Living even for a moment uttering Krishna's Name makes one's life fruitful.

Selfless prayer is a penance by itself

 

Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

 

பிரார்தனையின் அடித்தளம் நம்பிக்கையே.

தன்னலமற்ற பிரார்தனை ஒரு தவமேயாகும்.

 

Translation

 

Faith is the base for prayer.

 

Selfless prayer is a penance by itself.

God’s boundless grace though, is immeasurable, limitless and infinite!

 

Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

 

We may have taken thousands of births, committed millons of sins and accumulated numerous vaasanaas (imprints of past thoughts/actions). No matter how collossal that figure is, it is unquestionably well within the realm of the finite. God's boundless grace though, is immeasurable, limitless and infinite!

When you are dependent on others, you have to live like a dog. When you depend on the Divine Names of the Lord, your life is king-size.

 

Source: Blissful blossoms –  H H Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

 

A dog wags its tail because it depends on man for its food whereas a lion walks around majestically as it hunts down its own food. 

 

When you are dependent on others, you have to live like a dog. 

 

When you depend on the Divine Names of the Lord, your life is king-size, like that of a lion.

Jakaro janma vischeda: pakara: papanashanam

 

Source: http://www.godivinity.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/Nama-Mahatmyam.pdf

 

‘Japa’, is made of two letters, ‘ja’ and ‘pa’,

 

‘Jakaro janma vischeda: pakara: papanashanam’;

 

‘ja’ stands for liberation or moksha and ‘pa’ stands for obliteration of all sins.

 

Thus, Japa atonce removes our sins and makes us free from janmas (cyle of births and deaths).

When he becomes conscious of a greater Power governing the world, he approaches it through prayer for the fulfilment of his needs

 

Source: Sri Aurobindo – Power and Significance of Prayer

 

The life  of  man is a life of wants and needs and therefore of desires, not only in his physical and vital,  but in his mental and spiritual being.

 

When he  becomes  conscious  of  a  greater  Power governing  the  world,  he  approaches  it through prayer for the fulfilment of his needs, …………………. still  this way of turning to the Divine is an essential movement of  our  religious being and reposes on a universal truth.

Would it not amount to grave injustice if one shows a difficult path to the world ?

 

Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

 

When the scriptures and the sages have shown us the path of Nama kirtan as the simplest means to attain liberation in this Kali yuga, bearing in mind all our limitations, would it not amount to grave injustice if one shows a difficult path to the world?
