But it is a great deal to his credit if a householder utters the name of the Lord.

Nama Article 16th October 2012

 

Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

 

MASTER: "A holy man who has renounced the world will of course chant the name of God. That is only natural. He has no other duties to perform. If he meditates on God it shouldn't surprise anybody. On the other hand, if he fails to think of God or chant His holy name, then people will think ill of him.

 

"But it is a great deal to his credit if a householder utters the name of the Lord. Think of King Janaka. What courage he had, indeed! He fenced with two swords, the one of Knowledge and the other of work. He possessed the perfect Knowledge of Brahman and also was devoted to the duties of the world.”

The life of a householder is the most blessed one.

 

By being a householder, leading a righteous life and chanting the Mahamantra, one can enjoy this life as well as in the life beyond!

 

But the duties of a householder are – love towards all beings, service to devotees of the Lord and chanting of the holy names of the Lord.

 

One whose mind wavers even a little is a householder indeed; and one whose mind rests in  dynamic silence is verily a true ascetic

 

Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :

 

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