Thirumalai – Thondaradipodi azhwar

 

துப்புடை யாரை அடைவ தெல்லாம் சோர்விடத் துத்துணை யாவ ரென்றே

 

ஒப்பிலே னாகிலும் நின்ன டைந்தேன் ஆனைக்கு நீஅருள் செய்த மையால்

 

எய்ப்பு என்னை வந்து நலியும் போதுஅங்கு ஏதும்நா னுன்னை நினைக்க மாட்டேன்

 

அப்போதைக்கு இப்போதே சொல்லி வைத்தேன் அரங்கத் தரவணைப் பள்ளி யானே.

 

Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

 

Moksha (Liberation) is certain for one who utters the Name of the Lord in his last moment of life. We may think that it is easy. But, we do not know if we would remember to utter Name of the Lord in our last moment. Therefore, ‘I utter it right now. Please bless me so that your Divine Name comes to my lips in my last moment.’ Thus, does Thondaradi Ãzhwãr surrender to Lord!.

>The God of Death has no compassion. One must always Chant the Divine name of the Lord Hari.

>

 

For our scriptures

 

Kaalakshepo na kartavyah ksheenamaayuh kshane kshane

Yamasya Karuna Nasti Kartavyam Harikeertanam

 

Do not waste your time in trivial matters; Life is getting reduced every second. The God of Death has no compassion. One must always Chant the Divine name of the Lord Hari.

>Test to determine whether we can remember in our last moments by Sri Sri Chandrasekharendra Saraswati Swamigal [Maha Periyava] of Kaanchi Kaamakoti Peetam

Test to determine whether we can remember in our last moments by Sri Sri Chandrasekharendra Saraswati Swamigal [Maha Periyava] of Kaanchi Kaamakoti Peetam

 

The thought that seize out one’s mind for life long period would surely, strongly surface during the last breath. Likewise we ourselves can have a test to determine whether it’s possible to have an active remembrance of the lord when our soul departs the body.

 

Our holy scriptures (sastras) declares that the sleep we have on daily basis is similar to death. When we are  fast asleep we do not have any awareness of our senses and wisdom (Gjana).Thats why it’s been named as ‘ nithya pralaya’.

 

Hence on daily basis we can try whether we can think only about God ‘s name before we go for a sleep. We can think of the lord that we adored much. No other thought should occupy our mind. It seems to be easy while saying so. But the reality is, its very difficult to practice.  Let the thinking be about of Kaamakshi, Natajara, Dakshinamurthy, Venkatramana or Muruga – its very intricate indeed to think flawlessly without any other thought.

 

We may think ‘what’s so challenging to think of a Guru or God whose very thought  provides so much of energy and relieve to the mind?’. But for no apparent reason the mind would start wandering within the few minutes from the very divinely thought and would eventually gets a sleep by having material thoughts.

 

We should be certain that we can ceaselessly think of the lord if we develop a practice slowly without getting cheated by the mind. All depends on our practice and tireless efforts. The supreme god (Paramathma) Himself will provide the strength based on our fortitude.

>I am aware of every effort – small or big that is being put forth towards Mahamantra kirtan and am deeply moved by your love for me and commitment towards Nama

Nama Article 22nd May 2011

Sri Sri Swamiji gave the following benedictory message to all members of the G.O.D-Worldwide family on the eve of GOD Annual Day Celebrations 2011 that was most inspiring –

 

“The sweetness and the divine vibes of the Mahamantra are already palpable in every nook and corner of of India especially Tamilnadu, Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra, Maharashtra and Delhi and across the globe in several countries  such as USA, AUSTRALIA, MALAYSIA, UK, SINGAPORE, MIDDLE EASTERN Countries, INDONESIA, FIJI, GERMANY and FINLAND.

 

From small homely satsanghs to  formal Organizations functioning on a large scale, selfless friends from the GOD family  are working towards the common goal of nama prachar bearing my Vision to spread the bliss of the mahamantra everywhere in their hearts. Everyone – from corporate executives and professionals to daily labourers are toiling towards this common goal with their hearts bubbling with Guru bhakthi. Unmindful of the  troubles they may have to encounter in their day to day lives and the countless sacrifices that they may have to make  despite their busy schedules, these friends have dedicated themselves in every manner possible to the cause of Nama propagation and Guru seva. Whether or not the divine Mahamantra that they all chant with heartfelt devotion and love reaches the abode of God, it certainly reaches my ears all the time.  I hear every nama that comes from your tongues and I am aware of every effort – small or big that is being put forth towards Mahamantra kirtan and am deeply moved by your love for me and commitment towards Nama. My blessings, prayers and love are ever with you, your family and your loved ones. “

 

Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :
