Swami Papa Ramdas
By the repetition of the Divine Name your mind is not only purged of all its impure thoughts and desires but is also lifted to the loftiest state of consciousness in which you realise your union and oneness with God.
Of all the disciplines for controlling the restless mind there is none so easy and efficacious as the taking of the Divine Name. But there is a way in the repetition of it and that is, it must be uttered with full faith and love for it; then only you will feel that the Lord’s Name is very, very sweet.
Please check these: Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji
“It is all right even if you do not hold your senses under control. Keep doing Nãma Sankirtan. The ‘indriyãs’ (senses) will automatically come under control!”
I feel ashamed to stand before God and seek for his blessings the next time. What should I do?
If you sincerely pray to get the obstacle removed, your prayer shall be fulfilled
To protect one from five senses one need to keep a vigilant watchman or a ferocious dog and that is nothing but the divine names of the Lord.
The Mahamaya (greatest illusion), the mind, can be brought under control slowly and steadily by Namakirtan alone.
Drench your senses in the enchanting form of Krishna, His stories, His glory and His Divine Name. The mind is effortlessly controlled!
What is difficult for human beings? The constant control of the mind.
The name of God is more powerful than the senses. It will become all right in time if you practise regularly.
If we think of God and pray to Him for His guidance and His grace, we shall derive strength to battle against these temptations and conquer our weaknesses
Likewise, never once does a true disciple doubt, if his Guru has conquered his senses!
If the mind troubles?
