In Bhagavat Bhakti if one labours sincerely then he will definitely receive the fruit. There is no doubt on this account.

Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

 

Guru initiates you into a Mantra but who has to practise the japa? You, of course! If you have the yearning you will definitely do incessant japa of the Mantra given to you by the Guru. It is only the ‘lakshiyavãdi’ (one whose mind is set on the goal) who labours. When one studies in an engineering college he labours for four years to get his degree! Only then can he earn money. He then goes abroad. Likewise one studies to become a doctor.

 

But in Bhagavat vishaya we expect everything to be given to us on a silver platter! Do not expect to be fed. Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa used to say, “Do you expect me to skin the banana and push it down your throat?” You must exert effort. If you try you are sure to receive the Grace. In Bhagavat Bhakti if one labours sincerely then he will definitely receive the fruit. There is no doubt on this account. Mantra is like a fire. Guru throws it to you. ‘Indanam’ is the ‘ãvarti’ that you perform. As you do incessant japa of the Mantra it adds up to the fire and makes it a ‘Tapo Agni’ which leads you to Jnãna/Bhagavãn’s Lotus Feet.

The time lost cannot be gained back. Death awaits you. If you say that you would do japa, dhyana after death in the 'loka' that you might attain – well! You cannot do japa or dhyana there

 

If you desire to have God with you always, do japa of His Naama always

 

Similarly, we make resolutions to do japa or dhyana many times but fail to keep it up. But, repeated resolutions and effort towards it will finally help us in doing it steadily.
