Haripath – Sant Gnyaneshwar

 

एक तत्त्व नाम दृढ धरी मना ।

हरिसी करुणा येईल तूझी ॥ १ ॥

ते नाम सोपे रे रामकृष्ण गोविंद ।

वाचेसी सद्‍गद्‍ जपे आधी ॥ २ ॥

नामापरते तत्त्व नाही रे अन्यथा ।

वाया आणिका पंथा जाशी झणी ॥ ३ ॥

ज्ञानदेवा मौन जपमाळ अंतरी ।

धरोनी श्रीहरि जपे सदा ॥ ४ ॥

 

O my mind, cherish the remembrance of Hari’s name and hold on to His name firmly in your mind as the only Tatva;

And Hari showers His mercy on you.

It is no great difficult chore to chant the name of the Lord;

Therefore, please chant His name with a voice that is sweet with love.

There is no other superior means than repeating His names for ones upliftment;

So why should you wander on difficult paths, forsaking the sweet path of His name?

Jnanadev says: I keep silence, and keep turning the rosary of His name within;

Thus my japa is always going on

This is verily a standing example for the fact that faith in God also comes by only by His grace.

 

But if you have faith,even a stone image can talk to you. So I believe that faith is the greatest of all. This faith should be firm and unshakable.

 

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

 

There is no other yoga, superior to Nama-kirtan. Kirtan is the ultimate way to attain the Supreme Being.

 

When there is a fine royal path (Chanting the Divine Name), why enter bylanes? – Saint Thayagaraja

 

 

Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :

 

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