When one believes in the grace of the Lord alone and totally surrenders to Him, he is liberated in the very same birth.

Question : There is a sloka in ‘Bhagavad Gita’

 

aneka janma samsiddhih

thatho yathi parangathim

 

Bhagavad Gita (6 : 45)

 

प्रयत्नाद्यतमानस्तु योगी संशुद्धकिल्बिषः |

अनेकजन्मसंसिद्धस्ततो याति परां गतिम् ||

 

which means only after several births does one attain liberation.”

 

Whereas, another sloka says

 

Thesham samudhartha mruthyu samsarasagarath

Bhavaami nachiraath, Partha, maiyaveshita chethasaam

 

Bhagavad Gita (12 : 6, 7)

 

ये तु सर्वाणि कर्माणि मयि संन्यस्य मत्परः |

अनन्येनैव योगेन मां ध्यायन्त उपासते ||

 

तेषामहं समुद्धर्ता मृत्युसंसारसागरात् |

भवामि नचिरात्पार्थ मय्यावेशितचेतसाम् ||

 

Which means “one gets liberated from the cycle of birth and death in this very janma”.

 

Are not these two slokas contradictory?

 

 

Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji :

 

No, they are not.

 

This has to be viewed in proper perspective. When one believes that liberation comes about only through ‘sadhana’ he has to go through several births before reaching his goal, whereas, when one believes in the grace of the Lord alone and totally surrenders to Him, he is liberated in the very same birth.

 

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

 

While speaking on Bhakti marga alone Lord Says………

 

Likewise, it would suffice if we do not block the Grace that is being sent out.

 

God’s grace always flows in abundance. It is upto you to be ready to receive it.

 

What is the secret of success?

 

It is up to you to choose the most apt means of transport given your current load of luggage and various other factors

 

The spirit of Devotion cultivated by the recitation of His Name is the best form of virtue and this alone has been declared to be the paramount duty that should be practiced in this world.

 

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

 

The intention of continued chanting of the Divine names is to take one to the state of total selfless, unconditional LOVE

 

Everything in our life is predetermined. All we have to do is to turn and fix our mind on Him!

 

Having compassion of the Lord as the foundation, the one which has no rules, the one which can eradicate the force of Kali, Namakirtanam is the only resort. I think again and again about this with in Myself

  

Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :

 

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