Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji
In this Kali the Mahătmas come only to propagate the dharma of Năma Sankirtan. The whole of Thiruppăvai speaks of the glory of Năma Sankirtan, in every song it mentions Năma Sankirtan.
பங்கயக் கண்ணானைப் பாடேலோர் எம்பாவாய்
‘Pangayak kannănaip pădelo rembăvăi’ (sing the Lotus eyed one)
மனத்துக்கு இனியானைப் பாடவும் நீ வாய் திறவாய்
Manthukku iniyanai paadavum nee vaai thiravai (Sing the praises of the one whose thought brings immense joy)
‘Paramanadi pădi’ (sing the praises of the Lord’s Lotus Feet),
‘Uttaman perpădi’ (sing the Names of the Truthful One),
‘Văyinăl pădi’ (sing His praises),
கேசவனைப் பாடவும் நீ கேட்டே கிடத்தியோ?
‘Kesavanai pădavum’ (Sing the praises of Kesava),
‘Pădip paraikondu’ (Sing His praises).
This is because only ‘Kirtan’ attracts Bhagavăn.
