Merely singing the names of the Lord and by his constant remembrance will you attain God-realisation.

People despise this Kali Yuga. This is a mistake for in Kali Yuga you can attain God-realisation easily, you do not have to do hard tapas (austerities).

 

Merely singing the names of the Lord and by his constant remembrance will you attain God-realisation.

The good and evil which are the creation of Sri Hari’s Maya, cannot be eliminated except by Chanting the Divine Names of Sri Hari.

Thus it is spoken of in the scriptures regarding constant remembering as a means to liberation

 

Bhakti Yoga by Swami Vivekananda

 

'The loving wife meditates on her loving husband'; here also a kind of eager and continuous remembrance is meant. This is devotion according to Shankara.

 

Meditation again is a constant remembrance (of the thing meditated upon) flowing like an unbroken stream of oil poured out from one vessel to another. When this kind of remembering has been attained (in relation to God) all bondages break. Thus it is spoken of in the scriptures regarding constant remembering as a means to liberation.

For it has been said by the Lord: ‘Those who are constantly attached to Me and worship Me with love–I give that direction to their will by which they come to Me.’

 

Bhakti Yoga by Swami Vivekananda

 

Worship is constant remembering as may be seen from the essential texts of scriptures. Knowing, which is the same as repeated worship, has been described as constant remembering. . . . Thus the memory, which has attained to the height of what is as good as direct perception, is spoken of in the Shruti as a means of liberation.

 

'This Atman is not to be reached through various sciences, nor by intellect, nor by much study of the Vedas. Whomsoever this Atman desires, by him is the Atman attained, unto him this Atman discovers Himself.' Here, after saying that mere hearing, thinking and meditating are not the means of attaining this Atman, it is said, 'Whom this Atman desires, by him the Atman is attained.'

 

The extremely beloved is desired; by whomsoever this Atman is extremely beloved, he becomes the most beloved of the Atman. So that this beloved may attain the Atman, the Lord Himself helps.

 

For it has been said by the Lord: 'Those who are constantly attached to Me and worship Me with love–I give that direction to their will by which they come to Me.' Therefore it is said that, to whomsoever this remembering, which is of the same form as direct perception , is very dear, because it is dear to the Object of such memory perception, he is desired by the Supreme Atman, by him the Supreme Atman is attained. This constant remembrance is denoted by the word Bhakti.” So says Bhagavan Ramanuja in his commentary on the Sutra Athato Brahma-jijnasa.

>Just as wealth accrued by a man is useful to the world and for future generations, a man’s bhakti and the power of Nama gives strength to innumerable people

Nama Article 24th April 2011

There is no doubt that uttering HARI NAMA even once earns moksha.

 

Just as the greed and taste for wealth does not subside, the taste for bhakti and Nama does not subside. Any amount does not suffice.

 

Just as wealth accrued by a man is useful to the world and for future generations, a man's bhakti and the power of Nama gives strength to innumerable people

>In Kanthar Anubhuti, which explains the supreme truth of sprirituality, He prays to Lord to bless him to Chant the Divine Names for ever.

Saint Arunagirinathar

 

அருனகிரிநாதர் – திருப்புகழ் – கந்தரனுபூதி

 

ஆடும் பரிவேல் அணிசேவல் எனப்

பாடும் பணியே பணியாய் அருள்வாய்!

 

Saint Arunagirinathar who was blessed by Lord Muruga portrayed the glory of the Lord so eloquently, elegantly and elaborately and His works have acquired the name, as “Thiruppugazh”. In Kanthar Anubhuti, which explains the supreme truth of sprirituality, He prays to Lord to bless him to Chant the Divine Names for ever.
