Happy Republic day
Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji
Who can be so compassionate? They (Mahans) come away leaving their wives, children and parents. They neither think of them nor do they worry about them. But, they take those who seek them as their family. They bear the burden of the families of their devotees. They worry over their problems and are concerned only about their welfare. They feel, ‘it is not enough if I bless my devotee but should bless all those who help my devotee!’ In Mahabharata, how did Krishna view each and every one? Any friend of Arjuna was his friend. Any enemy of Arjuna was his enemy. The deep love (‘anbu’/’premai’) that Krishna had for Arjuna was the reason behind this. It is this sort of love that Mahans have shown to all those who have sought them.
When these Mahans mingle with the devotees without any bias of Nationality, State, Caste, Religion or Language then we find that those who seek them, those who come to them also forget all about the country, the state, the caste, the language they belong. Therefore, real tolerance, real national integration and compassion can come about only through such Mahans who have attained Oneness with God.
The charitra of such Mahans are the proof for achieving national integration, tolerance and compassion. Moreover, from the lives of several Mahans we are able to understand their deep compassion. In these we find that they have gone beyond religion, caste, nationality, language, state and looking at Man only as Man, have blessed the people with the requisite ‘arul’ (Grace). Therefore, in the world when each and everyone attains such high state of spirituality there is no doubt whatsoever that National Integration, Compassion and Tolerance towards other faiths will come about.

By constantly chanting the divine Mahamantra and surrendering to the feet of Bhagavan, one can attain moksha by his grace. In this state, individual mind would be one with the Universal mind of the Lord.
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
