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.

The rarest of the rare is getting a Uttama Guru. When you have a Guru, you can peacefully rest.

 

How do we know that the Guru is pleased with us?

 

No one else pleases me the most than the ones who Chant Mahamantra!

 

When a disciple leads his life with the clear understanding that it is the Guru who is running his life – adverse or otherwise, completely emptying the mind of personal likes and dislikes, seeing everything as Guru's leela, attains realization

 

Guru's Word is the root of Mantra

 

God is for all. Each and everyone have the right to attain God. Bhagavan Nama japa is the universal way

 

'Gurohu anugrahenaiva puman puranah prasantaiye'

 

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

 

Bhakti is all about showing gratitude.

 

It is the Guru who shows that way, and the gratitude shown to such a Guru is Guru Bhakti

 

How to show our gratitude to our Guru?

 

The only act a true devotee can do is to chant Nama to express the gratitude to the Guru for the grace showered on the devotee.

 

Having compassion of the Lord as the foundation, the one which has no rules, the one which can eradicate the force of Kali, Namakirtanam is the only resort. I think again and again about this with in Myself

 

Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :

 

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