It is not wrong to do sădhana even while resorting to ‘kripa mărga’. Keep doing japa always.

Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

 

Awaiting Grace is one kind of ‘mărga’ and taking up sădhana is another type of ‘mărga’. It is not wrong to do sădhana even while resorting to ‘kripa mărga’. The reason is that, when you attain ‘siddha shuddhi’ (clean mind) due to sădhana, you will be able to do true bhakti. You cannot do this (pure bhakti) now with the sort of ‘manas’ that you have. Now, this ‘manas’ is ‘heavy’ with all worldly affairs. So, you cannot possess true bhakti with such a ‘manas’. What should you do then? Do sădhana. What will you attain through sădhana? ‘Siddha shuddhi’. Then, you may also achieve the ‘prema bhakti’ that you desire. If you desire this you can then do bhakti in this way also. So, Sadhus’ association — Sadhus’ company — will make you pure (“pavithra’). Therefore, acquire boundless ‘ănanda’ and boundless ‘shakti’ in this janma itself.

 

How come Mahatmas do massive work? Because, they have earned such great ‘ătma bhala’. Not only ‘ănanda’ (joy) but ‘perătral’ (immense power) is also earned. So, there is nothing to get saddened. We have attained ‘manushya janma’ (human birth), a good Guru, a good mărga and are doing good sădhana. Why then feel saddened? We should only make effort. We should keep doing sădhana without wasting even a moment. Keep doing japa always.

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

 

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
