I do not know the full potency or the fruitful benefit of chanting the Divine Names. The sweet Name of Shri Krishna dances on my tongue of its own accord.

Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu is an avatar of Krishna Himself

 

Medicine possessing the highest potency is sure to produce its salutary effect even on one who is unaware of its efficacy

 

The more you chant a Mantra, the quicker you realize its potency. From that perspective, one gets the unlimited privilege of chanting the Maha Mantra any where and anytime. So this Mantra is alone enough.

If recited from the heart, it charms away every evil thought; and evil thought gone, no corresponding action is possible.

A SURE AID

 

There is no doubt that Rama Nama is the surest aid. If recited from the heart, it charms away every evil thought; and evil thought gone, no corresponding action is possible.

 

The outward helps are all useless if the mind is weak. They are superfluous if the mind is pure. This must not be taken to mean that a pure-minded man can take all the liberties and still keep safe. Such a man simply will not take any liberties with himself. His whole life will be an infallible testimony to the inward purity. The Gita truly says that mind makes the man and unmakes him. Milton paraphrases the same thought when he says: “The mind in its own place, and in itself can make a Heaven of Hell, a Hell of Heaven.”

IN THIS KALI YUGA THE DIVINE NAME OF THE LORD IS VERILY THE RIGHT, EASIEST AND SURE WAY FOR ALL.

Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji says, “Naamasankirtan is a very great path because it brings in the highest benefit effortlessly. Generally, people desire the comforts and pleasures of a king but do not wish to shoulder any responsibility that is part of the throne. Is it not sheer logic that as man’s strength goes down the means to attain the Lord should become harder? But wonder of wonders! What deep, inexplicable compassion our Maharishis have for us! As our strength and maturity keeps going down they make the path leading to the Lord easier and easier! Do you know which is the easiest of all the easy ways? In this Yuga it would suffice to just utter the Divine Names of the Lord – Rama! Krishna! Siva!

 

Would a wise man fail to choose this path that bestows the highest benefit with the least effort?

 

In this “Kali Dharma Undiyar”, Sri Sri Swamiji establishes,

 

“IN THIS KALI YUGA THE DIVINE NAME OF THE LORD IS VERILY THE RIGHT, EASIEST AND SURE WAY FOR ALL.”

What do you mean by Nama Dwaar?

 

Preamble of Namadwaar, Nama Dwaar – Purpose and Plan

 

When a man does not harbour any bad (or unauspicious) thought about any creature, to that man of uniform outlook (view) towards all, happiness is there all around.

 

Motto of Namadwaar: propagation of Nama Sankirtan of the Maha Mantra as the universal means of bringing about peace, prosperity and the feeling of universal brotherhood and providing material and spiritual upliftment to humanity at large.

 

"Everyone has worries.  I have a worry too!  What is my worry?  Why should the Lord's grace be limited to only a few people?  Can't we bring about a world where there is no disparity in attaining the grace of the Lord? This is my worry! '

 

Namadwaar [A prayer house powered by the Divine Name] was inaugurated with the blessings of Sri Sri Muralidharaswamiji, the 28th of February 2010 in Houston, USA

 

As per the Divine Will of our Master, our most beloved Thakurji – Madhuri Sakhi Sameta Sri Premika Varadan, out of their infinite compassion and love, have decided to make themselves physically present around the world! And they have chosen their first 'home' away from Their India home – "KL Namadwaar",

Srimad Bhagavatham adds that one should learn Bhagavatha Dharma (which is nothing but chanting of the Divine Name of God) from such a Guru by which Sri Hari is pleased.

Nama Article 23rd January 2013

 

Srimad Bhagavatham 11:3:22

 

तस्माद् गुरुं प्रपद्येत जिज्ञासुः श्रेय उत्तमम् |

शाब्दे परे च निष्णातं ब्रह्मण्य् उपशमाश्रयम् ||

तत्र भागवतान् धर्मान् शिक्षेद् गुर्व्-आत्म-दैवतः |

अमाययानुवृत्त्या यैस् तुष्येद् आत्मात्म-दो हरिः ||

 

Srimad Bhagavatham guides those seeking real happiness to surrender to a Guru who has realised the ultimate reality.

 

What should one learn from that Guru ?

 

Srimad Bhagavatham adds that one should learn Bhagavatha Dharma (which is nothing but chanting of the Divine Name of God) from such a Guru by which Sri Hari is pleased.

The Sanathana Dharma is universally true. While the Dharma cannot be changed, the alternative is to adapt the right kind of Dharma, apt for the age. That is verily the Bhagavata Dharma, which is nothing but chanting of the Divine Name of God

 

What is Bhagavata dharma? Showing the way to the Almighty even to the lowliest of the lowly is Bhagavata dharma.

 

Bhagavata Dharma is a reformation measure indeed!

 

Would it not amount to grave injustice if one shows a difficult path to the world ?

 

Therefore, who is a Sadguru? The one who calls all the people in this Kali Yuga and gives the 'upadesa', "Utter the Name of the Lord. You can attain God!" Only such a one is a Sadguru.

 

We come across many Gurus. Each one of them prescribes a path. Which one should be followed? What is to be done?

 

All those who are associated with this Sath Sangam should lead the life of Dharma; should do Naama Japam and Naama Sankirtanam every day; should be ever helpful to one and all; should be disciplined and in control always.

I have a very bad temper and lose my composure very quickly. I also have an obsessed mind and get lewd thoughts. Please help me.
