Feeling blessed, “How fortunate am I to have been blessed with this Nama!” one should drown Bhagavan in ‘premai’ – love

Nama Article 8th August 2012


Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji


You may count the beads in the japa mala innumerable times or do intense meditation. Bhagavan is not attracted by it. Bhagavan ‘yearns’ only for love. Only love from the 'jivas' stimulates and attracts Bhagavãn.


Perform Nama Sankirtan with ‘premai’. When you utter the name of the one whom you love deeply, don’t you do it with deep feeling and earnestness? Call out to Bhagavan in the same way. Do not perform Nama Sankirtan as if it is a burden laid on you but utter it elatedly as you would pet your dear one (‘konji konji’).


Feeling blessed, “How fortunate am I to have been blessed with this Nama!” one should drown Bhagavan in ‘premai’ – love. (‘Premaiyil tocchu tocchu Nãma Sankirtan pannanum!)

Only such Nama Sankirtan will bring in results. Keep Bhagavan soaked in love! (‘Premai dahikanum’ – One should be set ablaze with Love for God!). And this can be experienced only in a true Satsang. 

Only in the company of Sadhus is ‘premai’ experienced in one’s heart.

'Similarly, my friend,' the master says, 'you can sit like that forever, but you'll never be meditating or understanding truth.'


The intention of continued chanting of the Divine names is to take one to the state of total selfless, unconditional LOVE

I can worship God, but how can I love LORD KRISHNA? You can love Him if you understand that Sri Krishna is pure love and love alone.


That love, can sprout only by his grace. His grace descends when we chant the Mahamantra.


Mechanical chanting is the only starting point we can attempt. It matures to love by grace.


THE JNAANA (KNOWLEDGE) BORN OUT OF GRACE, THE VIDWAT (LEARNING) BORN OF THIS GRACE, WEALTH RECEIVED FROM SUCH A GRACE IS EVERLASTING AND SAFE (HARMLESS).


God gives whatever is required (by His devotee), removes whatever is not needed, leads the devotee in the path suited to him/her; Since Bhagavãn takes utmost interest in the devotee's needs the latter will 

not earn/attain any 'siddhi'


What is there in this world that devotion to the Lord cannot do?


By repeatedly chanting the Divine Name of Lord Hari, one attains all siddhis (powers). When Lord, the Consort of Goddess Shridevi, and the Lord of the world, is pleased, what remains an impossibility on this earth?


Repetition of Name will create Love. Hari will be yours when you attain Love


Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :

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