Rama Năma is ‘kalpaka vruksha’ (the [divine] tree bounty)! It bestows on you everything that you ask standing below it. Standing below a ‘kalpaka vruksha’ if a person does not know that it is a ‘kalpaka vruksha’ is he not the most unfortunate? Is there anyone as unfortunate as the one who stands below the ‘kalpaka vruksha’ and mistakes it to be some other tree? Similarly, if through a Guru you have been initiated into Rama Năma you will get the ‘Kalpaka vruksha’ – you will get all that you seek. But, you must do incessant chanting of that Rama Năma (‘uru yettri kollavendum’). ‘uru yera yera tiru arul kai koodum’ – as you do repeated japa of the mantra you receive the blessings of the Lord. You receive as much blessings as the japa performed. Just by the mere chanting of Rama Năma all the difficulties that you wish to be removed in your life will all be removed, all your desires will be fulfilled, your tapas will even develop to the extent of blessing others! You tapas will not diminish if you bless another through Rama Năma. If the tongue is used to chanting Rama Năma, if the person who is in the habit of chanting Rama Năma blesses another, the ‘phala’ of Rama Năma will not diminish. Rama Nămă alone possesses this ‘shakti’ (power). Therefore, Rama Năma is a ‘kalpaka vruksha’.
At the same time, since I advocate chanting of Rama Năma you should not question me, ‘You asked me to chant Rama Năma and I have. But nothing has come about!’ after having chanted for just three or four times. You should keep chanting it incessantly with one-pointed mind and as long as possible.
Rama Năma is a ‘kalapaka vruksha’. If you have received it through a Guru (‘Guru mukhena’), if a Guru has given it to you, hold on to it tightly. That one (Năma) is enough. Do not take several mantras. Do not perform japa of several mantras. There is no need.
