देवदत्तोहमो त्य् एतद् विज्ञानं निरपेक्षकम्

तद्वद् ब्रह्मविदोप्य् अस्य ब्रह्माहम् इति वेदनम्

 

There are no qualifications necessary to know ones own name, and the

same is true for the knower of Gods knowledge that "I am God”.

 

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

 

Incapability is the qualification! You should realize that you are incapable (of treading any spiritual path). AND, THAT IS THE ONLY QUALIFICATION REQUIRED. Chant this Divine Maha Mantra that has been advocated by our Shãstras. It is the easiest way

 

They might hesitate and ask, ‘Can I, who have committed innumerable grievous sins, utter the pure Name of the Lord?’ Such people need not hesitate or feel shy on this ground; they CAN sing the Divine Name of the Lord boldly and cheerfully!”

 

Lord Hari never discriminates between the learned and unlearned; So, whom so ever repeat His name always, get liberated.

 

I then decided that, though a scholar by profession, I should always remain a humble, ignorant peasant at heart, and pray, like that villager

 

Panditji marveled at Lakshmi's devotion and accepted that her faith was more powerful than his empty learning. He sincerely blessed Lakshmi.

 

The learned pandits tried their hands in various sastras and tried to calculate the distance. Each one gave different answers. Then Peria dasar said "This is a simple answer! Its just at a calling distance !

 

Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :

 

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