If you wish for eternal silence ('nishabda') of your mind, you have to produce a sound ('shabda') – and that sound is that of the Mahamantra.

>By Chanting and listening to Divine names of the Lord various unwanted thoughts that arise and disturb our mind are erased out and new ones do not crop up.

Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

 

Let us say that on the compound wall of our house some dirty posters have been pasted. What should we do to stop this? We should paste a poster reading, ‘do not paste any poster on this wall.’ This would stop further pasting of posters. So a poster was requried which would stop many dirty posters being pasted.

 

By Chanting and listening to Divine names of the Lord various unwanted thoughts that arise and disturb our mind are erased out and new ones do not crop up.

>If you have shaken off your sleep and regained sobriety this time, make the best use of your youth by worshipping the Lord and repeating His names.

>

 

Source: Pagal Harnath letters

 

To worship Lord will be difficult once the time is allowed to pass. You will never be able to get any water even if you try million times, unless you store it during the rains. For men, their youth is the rainy season. What do you expect to achieve in the old age, once you allow this happy time to pass by? So I tell you this the proper time to meditate upon the Lord. Nurture carefully the roots of love that have sprouted in youth. All your efforts will be crowned with success in time and then you will be able to withstand heat of the summer as well as to give relief to the wayfarers.

 

If on the other hand, the roots shrivel up due to heat, million rainy seasons will not be sufficient to do them any good. Therefore make proper use of this priceless time with the greatest of care and judgement. You wasted your youth million times before. If you have shaken off your sleep and regained sobriety this time, make the best use of your youth by worshipping the Lord and repeating His names. Brothers, you are now endowed with evanescent gift of youth, make the best use of it and gratify yourselves. Youth never returns once its lost. This is like the mid-day Sun, a single minute after mid-day and it will gradually go down from the zenith till it is lost.

>For them who are solely devoted to meditating on Me; who have their minds merged in Me, without delay, I become their deliverer from that sea of transmigration which is fraught with death

>

 

Bhagavad Gita (12 : 6, 7)

 

ये तु सर्वाणि कर्माणि मयि संन्यस्य मत्परः |

अनन्येनैव योगेन मां ध्यायन्त उपासते ||

 

तेषामहं समुद्धर्ता मृत्युसंसारसागरात् |

भवामि नचिरात्पार्थ मय्यावेशितचेतसाम् ||

 

Lord Krishna says, “As for those who having dedicated all actions to Me, who am God, and having accepted Me as the supreme, meditate by thinking of Me constantly, with single-minded concentration.”

 

 What comes to them?

 

Lord Krishna continues, “Hey Partha (Arjuna) , for them who are solely devoted to meditating on Me; who have their minds merged in Me,  without delay, I become their deliverer from that sea of transmigration which is fraught with death.”

 

How to over come maya (illusion) and constantly meditate on the Lord ?
