Sri Sri Krishna Premi Swamigal
 

தியானத்தைக் காட்டிலும்  கீர்த்தனமே சிறந்தது. தியானம் செய்வதற்க்கு பகவானின் ரூபம் தேவை. அவனுடைய ரூபத்தை நாம் பார்த்ததில்லை.  கீர்த்தனம் செய்ய பகவானின் நாமமே தேவை. அது நமக்கு நன்கு தெரியும்.

 

Chanting the Divine Names is better than Dhyana. For Dhyana we need the form of the Lord, which we have not seen.

 

For Chanting the Divine Names we need only the Name of the Lord. We know that very well.

 

Please check these: Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

 

Thus we are able to comprehend to a certain extent that there is no difference between the Name of the Lord and the Lord. Don't we?

 

Feeling that these Forms alone will not suffice for redemption of the world He also became the Divine Names such as 'Hari!' 'Siva!' and is ever alive in these Names.

 

It is verily the Name of the Supreme One – the one who creates, sustains and rests it in Himself

 

Name and the Named are but one

 

God, Guru, Srimad Bhagavatam and God's Divine Name — all are one and the same.

 

The Divine Name of the Lord ('Bhagavan Năma') has the power to redeem one and all.

 

The name is essence

 

With the external support, says Kabir, is the Supportless known

 

For every word there is a meaning which is inseparable

 

Even though there is complete identity between God and His name, the former closely follows the latter

 

Thus it is clear that we cannot identify an object without knowing its Name

 

Through the practice of the Name preceded by its true appraisement, however the same Brahma reveals itself even as a value of a jewel is revealed by its correct knowledge.
