The practice of other forms of atonement cannot bring total purification like Chanting the divine names of Lord

Nama Article 1st August 2012


Srimad Bhagavatam 6:2:12


नैकान्तिकं तद् धि कृतेपि निष्कृते मनः पुनर् धावति चेद् असत्-पथे

तत् कर्म-निर्हारम् अभीप्सतां हरेर् गुणानुवादः खलु सत्त्व-भावनः


The practice of other forms of atonement cannot bring total purification. This is shown by the fact that through their observances the mind is not cured of its addiction to evil and is again drawn towards the path of evil. Therefore, those who seek total liberation from the influence of sin should adopt Chanting the divine names of Lord. The heart of the person will be totally purified through the kirtana of the Divine Name.


Please check these: Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji


He calculated the ultimate profit – 'the income from the bribe is 1,00,000 rupees and the expense for obliterating the sin is only 10,000 rupees. I stand to gain 90,000 rupees'.


Which atonement ('prãyaschiita') is the best?


Why atonement by Chanting of the Divine Names of God is superior to others ?


Don't stop chanting for any reason. The rest of the things will be taken care of automatically.


And through constant repetition of the Name after the removal of sin, new sins cannot accumulate; just as when the light is kept burning in the room it can never be dark again


For whom there is no sin ? Adisankara says "For one who chants the Divine Name"


The only atonement (Praayachitham) which alone is capable of nullifying all the errors completely….


Chanting the Divine Name is a direct means to the attainment of supreme bliss


Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :

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