Our ‘bhajanam’ should not be performed with some desire (‘kămyărtam’)

Nama Article 23rd September 2012

 

Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

 

Our ‘bhajanam’ should not be performed with some desire (‘kămyărtam’). Nămdev was always saying ‘Pănduranga! Pănduranga!’ He had no other thought. He could not talk about anything else.

 

We write an examination and fail in it. We feel ashamed of the failure. We try our hand in some business and fail in it. We feel very ashamed. In the same way when we try our hand in reaching God and fail in it we should feel ashamed about it. We should either do bhakti deeply and attain God or be in the world enjoying worldly things. What is the use of remaining in-between (‘rendungkettan’) the two? — Neither here nor there?

If you want God alone, why do you accept the existence of anything else ?

 

If you are in the quest of the Lord give up everything – all karmas – and work towards the end purpose of Life

 

So, if one wants God, one’s whole heart must be given to Him. The one sole objective of the devotee is to pray to Him, to take His Name and to dedicate his whole life to His service.

 

If you want something from someone, you have to make him happy. Only then you will receive what you want. Similarly, if you want God's grace,……..

 

It is not enough if you have faith in God but you should have faith in yourself; the faith that you would see God

 

Three things which are rare indeed and are obtained only due to the grace of God

 

Since it has to be attained some day why not begin it today?

 

What is prayer?
