Haripath – Sant Gnyaneshwar
नित्यनेमनामी ते प्राणी दुर्लभ ।
लक्ष्मीवल्लभ तया जवळी ॥ १ ॥
नारायण हरि नारायण हरि ।
भुक्ति मुक्ति चारी घरी त्यांच्या ॥ २ ॥
हरिविण जन्म तो नर्कचि पै जाणा ।
यमाचा पाहुणा प्राणी होय ॥ ३ ॥
ज्ञानदेव पुसे निवृत्तीसी चाड ।
गगनाहूनि वाड नाम आहे ॥ ४ ॥
Nithya nema namee(m) tho nara pranee durlabha l Laksmeevallabha thaya javalee ll
Narayanahari Narayanahari l Bhukthi mukthi charee gharee(m) thyancha ll
Hariveena janma tho narakachi pai(m) jana l Yamacha pahoona pranee hoya ll
Gnanadeva puse Nivruththeesee chada l Gaganahuni vata nama ahe ll
There are very few who Chant His Name as an unfailing daily practice. It is only those who Chant may gain the grace and Lord Sri Hari, Lakshmi Devi’s Lord is nearer to them.
Bhukthi (worldly comforts) and mukthi (liberation) dwell in the house of those who chant “Narayanahari, Narayanahari”
Those who do not Chant; their life is truly a hell. They would suffer at Hell punished by Yama, the god of death.
Jnanadev says: When I asked my Guru, Nivruththinatha, the value of the name of God,
Nivruththinatha told me, “Name is greater than that of the sky above (larger than the vast space).”
Please check these: Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji
By being a householder, leading a righteous life and chanting the Mahamantra, one can enjoy this life as well as in the life beyond!
Namakirtan (Chanting the Divine Name) performed with worldly benefits in mind also leads us to salvation
In spite of having the Divine Name ‘Narayana’, which can free people from all sins, and the mouth to Chant the Divine Name, people still fall in the hell by not chanting it! What a wonder!!!
Remembering the Hare Rama Maha mantra always is Punya (Virtue), Forgetting Hare Rama Maha Mantra is sin.
Death awaits your day with its jaws open heartlessly, And yet daring you are to live on unperturbed, Without seeking the real solution
Chant the Name for financial benefit or to solve some problems; for attainment of liberation or enjoy Chanting the Divine Name and derive pleasure (‘Aanandha’) with the mere chanting
