Sadhana should be done with love for the fruit that is to be attained.

Nama Article 18th June 2013

 

Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

 

Sadhana should be done with love for the fruit that is to be attained. A woodcutter labours hard all through the day. But the thought that at the end of the day he would be able to purchase food, sweetmeats for his children and flowers for his wife lessens the burden of his labour. Does it not? One should have the fruit of the sadhana in mind and that would help you perform it with ease and enthusiasm.

 

Try to judge your progress in your sadhana by gauging how far you have been able to win over anger, frustration, lust, jealousy and desires. You must be able to like yourself. You must be pleased with yourself. The greatest ‘ishwarya’ (wealth) is not holding crores of rupees but feeling pleased, happy with yourself!

Only in the company of Sadhus is 'premai' experienced in one's heart.

 

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

 

Mechanical chanting is the only starting point we can attempt. It matures to love by grace.

 

What is there in this world that devotion to the Lord cannot do?

 

Repetition of Name will create Love. Hari will be yours when you attain Love

 

Feeling blessed, “How fortunate am I to have been blessed with this Nama!” one should drown Bhagavan in ‘premai’ – love

 

I can worship God, but how can I love LORD KRISHNA? You can love Him if you understand that Sri Krishna is pure love and love alone.In order to realize that you have to continuously chant the Maha Mantra.

 

Pure love towards me is developed by hearing My praises, having My darshan, meditating on Me and by Chanting My Divine names and glories.

 

'Similarly, my friend,' the master says, 'you can sit like that forever, but you'll never be meditating or understanding truth.'

 

When the necessary intensity of love for the Name is present, our mind will dwell uninterruptedly on the Name.

 

Pure love towards me is developed by hearing My praises, having My darshan, meditating on Me and by Chanting My Divine names and glories.

 

Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :

 

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