Nama Article 12th March 2012
नारायणात नामास्ति वागस्ति वशवर्तिनी ।
तथापी नरके घोरे पतन्तीत्येतदद्भुतम् ॥
"In spite of having the Divine Name 'Narayana', which can free people from all sins, and the mouth to Chant the Divine Name, people still fall in the hell by not chanting it! What a wonder!!!"
Please check these: Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji
Why people did not take to Rama Nama, which is so easy and simple to chant. He puts forth his findings in the following words, "Since it is so easy and simple, none takes to it!"
Those who are ready to accept this simple Mahamantra, we shall give this Mahamantra to those with love.
Namakirtan is definitely the easiest way. But our illusion (maya) would not allow us to do even that. Hence we should not get caught in the illusion. One should always catch hold of the Divine Name with out indulging in any pomp and show.
Man feels that only the most difficult is the highest, the most difficult way is the best way. This is a very wrong notion
Why is life so complicated? Why is there so much confusion in life? Can’t it be all simple? – Simplest and the most straightforward path FOR ALL
Simplest of the simple, Rarest of the rare, Sweetest of the sweet!
Due to My causeless mercy, I am very much pleased and enthusiastic to spread the glory of that Dharma which manifests itself in the Kirtan of my Divine Names
After ensuring all these if our mind is not pure there is no use of any of the above. For keeping our mind clean, Chanting the Names of Krishna is the only way.
Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :
Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
