What is the essence of all the Shastras, the Brahma Sutra, the Bhagavad Gita, the Upanishads, etc.

 

By chanting the Name of Bhagavăn one attains Atma Jnana, Jivan Mukti state

 

The greatness of Hari Nama Sankirtanam lies in the fact that this is one mărga (path) that apart from taking one to eternal bliss gives immeasurable joy even while practising it.

 

The essence of the endless Vedas is this : Seek the shelter of God and repeat His name with all thy heart.

Nama Article 29th November 2011

 

Sant Tukaram

 

वेद अनंत बोलिला । अर्थ इतकाचि शोधिला ॥१॥

विठोबासी शरण जावे । निजनिष्ठा नाम गावे ॥धृ॥

सकळ शास्त्रांचा विचार । अंती इतकाचि निर्धार ॥२॥

अठरापुराणी सिद्धांत । तुका म्हणे हाचि हेत ॥३॥

 


The essence of the endless Vedas is this : Seek the shelter of God and repeat His name with all thy heart.

 

The result of the cogitations of all the Shastras is also the same; Tuka says: The tenet of the eighteen Puranas is also identical.

By chanting the Name of Bhagavãn one attains Atma Jnana, Jivan Mukti state

Nama Article 28th November 2011

 

Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

 

Adi Sankara Bhagavat Pãdãl who, in the beginning, blessed thousands of ‘grantãs’ for the welfare of the world finally sang, ‘Bhaja Govindam! Bhaja Govindam! Bhaja Govindam moodamate!’ — ‘Oh! Fool! Why do you struggle with the study of the Shãstrãs? Chant the Name of Govinda!’ said Sankara. Sankara who has written a commentary (‘bhãshyam’) for the Vishnu Sahasranama has concluded it thus – ‘by chanting the Name of Bhagavãn one attains Atma Jnana, Jivan Mukti state. This does not require article (‘draviyam’ -) of worship. It does not involve any ‘jiva himsai’ (harming a life). It is an easy sadhana.

He who takes refuge in that glorious Name knows no pain, no sorrow, no care, no misery.

Swami Papa Ramdas

 

Oh! the charm of the Name!

It brings light where there is darkness,

happiness where there is misery,

contentment where there is dissatisfaction,

bliss where there is pain,

order where there is chaos,

life where there is death,

heaven where there is hell,

God where there is Maya.

He who takes refuge in that glorious Name knows no pain, no sorrow, no care, no misery.

He lives in perfect Peace.

The Name of God is like milk and other worldly affairs are like water

Nama Article 22nd November 2011

 

Sant Kabir

 

छीर रूप सतनाम है, नीर रूप व्यवहार ।

हंस रूप कोई साधु है, सत का छाननहार ।।

 

The Name of God is like milk and other worldly affairs are like water. There is a rare sage (Paramahamsa) who being like a swan knows the reality. 


It means that discriminative people are rare who can distinguish God and the world.

By hearing spiritual discourses and chanting the divine names…….. conceives a liking for Me without any effort the moment My virtues enter his ears

Nama Article 19th November 2011

 

Srimad Bhagavatham (3:29: 18, 19)

 

आध्यात्मिकानुश्रवणान् नाम-सङ्कीर्तनाच् च मे 

आर्जवेनार्य-सङ्गेन निरहङ्क्रियया तथा ।।

मद्-धर्मणो गुणैर् एतैः परिसंशुद्ध आशयः 

पुरुषस्याञ्जसाभ्येति श्रुत-मात्र-गुणं हि माम् ।।

 

By hearing spiritual discourses and chanting the divine names; by unity of mind, speech and body, fellowship with holy men and absence of egotism, the mind of the man engaged in activities intended to please Me gets thoroughly purified and conceives a liking for Me without any effort the moment My virtues enter his ears.

This little Dhruva is doing tapas with the blessings of Narada Maharishi. Narada Maharishi's 'anugraha' (Blessings) is protecting the child, as would the strong armour. We are, therefore, unable to disturb his tapas!

 

Mere chanting of the names of the Lord would not fetch you food. You have to put in your efforts…. You cannot achieve anything without self effort.

Namakirtan will bring down the whole tree (mind) with out any effort

 

The oral repetition of the Name leads one to mental repetition which finally resolves itself into the eternal vibration. The mind or the mouth cannot act without the Self.

 

Next morning when he got up he remembered without any effort the name of Rama and was much pleased

 

"When a huge tidal wave comes," says Bhagavan Shri Ramakrishna, "all the little brooks and ditches become full to the brim without any effort or consciousness on their own part; so when an Incarnation comes, a tidal wave of spirituality breaks upon the world, and people feel spirituality almost full in the air."
