Respect to one who performs Nama Sankirtan

 

Sri Bhagavan Naama Bodendra Saraswati Swamigal has performed a Siddhanta on the greatness of Divine Name in a text called “Bhagavan Naama Rasodayam”.

 

In the text, he says the following:

 

One should respect and revere a person chanting the Divine Names the same way as one would respect and revere a Jivan Mukta (a liberated soul).  The Jivan Mukta attains the supreme state of liberation after giving up his body.  One with a bad character and yet performing Nama Sankirtan also attains the same state after death.

 

A question arises here that how would the latter attain liberation?  The Lord in Bhagavat Gita says ‘thepi yaanti paraam gatim’ – that He shall give the Supreme state of liberation to such a person too, with a bad character, and yet has faith in the Divine Name.

 

One cannot question the Lord’s will! Further The Lord says ‘saadhureva sa manthavyah’ – that such a person be respected just as a Sadhu.

We should never think of their faults. If we do, we would earn a share of the sins committed by them

 

Even if a man of very condemnable character worships Me with one-pointed devotion, he is to be considered verily good

 

When a person utters the Divine Name of Shri krishna, be he a fool, immediately Shri Gauranga (Chaitanya Mahaprabhu) bows down before him in reverence.

 

Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :

 

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