If one chants the name of God, meditates on Him, and takes refuge in Him……..

Nama Article 12th October 2012

 

Source: The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna

 

Dr. Sreenath had a copy of the Gita in his hand.

 

DR. SREENATH (to his friends): "Everything is under the control of Prakriti. Nobody can escape the fruit of past action. This is called prarabdha."

 

MASTER: "Why, if one chants the name of God, meditates on Him, and takes refuge in Him-"

 

DR. SREENATH: "But, sir, how can one escape prarabdha, the effect of action performed in previous births?"

 

MASTER: "No doubt a man experiences a little of the effect; but much of it is cancelled by the power of God's name. A man was born blind of an eye. This was his punishment for a certain misdeed he had committed in his past birth, and the punishment was to remain with him for six more births. Be, however, took a bath in the Ganges, which gives one liberation. This meritorious action could not cure his blindness, but it saved him from his future births."
