Haripath – Sant Gnyaneshwar

 

जप तप कर्म क्रिया नेम धर्म ।

सर्वाघटी राम भाव शुद्ध ॥ १ ॥

न सोडी हा भावो टाकी रे संदेहो ।

रामकृष्णी टाहो नित्य फोडी ॥ २ ॥

जात वित्त गोत कुळ शीळ मात ।

भजे का त्वरित भावनायुक्‍त ॥ ३ ॥

ज्ञानदेवा ध्यानी रामकृष्ण मनी ।

वैकुंठ भुवनी घर केले ॥ ४ ॥

 

 

The practice of japa, austerity, and rituals is futile without invoking Lord Rama’s name which would give true purity of heart.

One must have the heart-felt conviction that God lives in every form and should hold on to that conviction,

One should throw away all doubts and chant aloud, “Rama-Krishna, Rama-Krishna,” daily with out breaking that practice.

Do not become conscious of your position, wealth, family lineage, or your virtuous acts;

All these considerations produce only pride. Hasten only to sing Hari’s name with great love.

Jnanadev says: Hari pervades my mind and my meditation;

I feel every moment that I’m living in Him.

 

Please check these: Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

 

श्रम एव हि केवलम् – All acts performed are only so much useless labor if it fails to generate love towards the Lord.

Man feels that only the most difficult is the highest, the most difficult way is the best way. This is a very wrong notion

That love, can sprout only by his grace. His grace descends when we chant the Mahamantra.

 

Bhakti is love for the truth. Truth is what that exists here, there everywhere, now and forever.

 

Remember again and again that wealth is always evil (cause for troubles). There is not the slightest trace of happiness in it

 

Accumulate the wealth of the Lord's Name; that wealth does not go anywhere

 

Nothing we earn today would come with us to the final destination but only the Divine Name WILL

 

Lord Rama says, “Any accumulated wealth will dissolve in due time. Any position of power attained will come to an end. All the relations (children, wife) come to an end in death. There is nothing in this world that is permanent.”

 

I spent all my energy and all my moments in life acquiring all of these possessions and wealth and now……I cannot get back even one moment

 

Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :

 

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