As soon the lamp is taken in, the room is lit up in one stroke. It is the same with Guru’s blessings. Our ignorance is removed in one stroke.

Nama Article 27th October 2011

 

27th Oct 2011 is H H Maharanyam Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji's 50th Jayanthi which is celebrated across the globe by Chanting of Mahamantra, Serving the elders, poor and needy and people in misery.

 

Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

 

Through Guru's grace ('katãksha') even the worst sinner can get ashore – in a moment, just as a room which was dark for thousands of years is immediately lit up by taking a lamp into it. The room is not lit up gradually just because it had remained dark for thousands of years.

 

As soon the lamp is taken in, the room is lit up in one stroke. It is the same with Guru's blessings. Our ignorance is removed in one stroke.

Some are family functions, some are religious functions, some are national functions, some are international functions – WHICH IS A UNIVERSAL FUNCTION – Birthday celebrations of a True Mahathma is a UNIVERSAL FUNCTION

 

Guru’s boundless grace is immeasurable, limitless and infinite.

 

I am not asking you to do giant tasks, but all I ask of you is, let the task be small, but do this with love and sincerity.

 

We would feel that there is none as rich as we are because we have got such a Guru Ratnam

 

Only a liberated person can awaken and liberate the person who is ignorant.

 

The common question that arises in everyone is 'What is essential to attain God – Grace or effort?'

 

God takes the form of a Guru and appears to the devotee; teaches him the Truth; purifies the mind by his teachings and contact

 

To remain in the Holy Feet of the Guru as a ‘nobody’ (zero); to remain like a doll in his hand. This is the only effort that can be taken by us.

 

Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :

 

Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
