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.

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.”
