Pursuit of joy is the single common driving force for all life-forms and that search continues in many different directions. Our scriptures and saints teach us that true eternal joy that does not have a droplet of sorrow can be found only in self-realisation. In order to attain the same many different paths have been enlisted by the scriptures.
However, in this age of Kali, given the robotic hectic lives we all lead it is said that to chant the Divine names of God is the simplest, sweetest, practical and most blissful path to self-realization. Innumerable Mahatmas have incarnated in Divine Bharath to drench the world in bhakthi and nama kirtan. One such living Mahapurusha today is His Holiness Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji of Tamil Nadu, South India, a saint of the highest order who is ever lost in the bliss of Krishna bhakthi. Sri Sri Swamiji is not merely intoxicated in Krishnaanubhava all the time, but pours forth the same upon all jivas who have His association and is the guiding light to countless across the world today. His simplicity and purity have inspired many young people to follow the path of dharma.
