Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

 

Whenever a benevolent thought arises in the hearts of Mahatmas regarding a Jiva, and when they start planning for his upliftment, that very moment, the Jiva begins to get prosperity. Even a despicable sinner becomes purified and becomes a holy person. The mercy that arose in the heart of Nityananda paved way for all auspiciousness for two sinners.

 

Nityananda shared his thoughts with Haridasa. Haridasa retorted – “You are trying to unnecessarily put your hands into a snake’s hole. Did you not listen to the reports given about them by these people?” Nityananda persisted – “I listened to everything. Can we afford to be afraid of all that? We must surely proclaim the Divine Name to them.” Haridas replied – “We shall propagate the Divine Name – Not to these two, but somewhere else”.

 

Nityananda replied – “Has Prabhu not instructed us that while propagating the Divine Name, we must do so with equal vision to all people without discrimination. Whether a sinner or a holy man, all persons deserve to receive the Divine Names.”

 

Haridas said – “Alright!, we shall treat those who come to us without bias. Is it especially needed to go in search of these two persons adamantly and proclaim the Divine Names? So many persons are still left to whom we must impart the Divine Names. Let us attend to them, Come Sir!”

 

An intelligent physician will first take care of only those, who are suffering very badly. Similarly, these two need the Divine Names more than the others. The atonement for their cruel acts can come only from the chanting of the Divine Names. They have no other way out. What do you say? Am I right?” – asked Nityananda.

 

Haridas said – “Your wish! If you consider these two as fit recipients of the Divine Name, then I have no objection to it. I shall accompany you.” Saying thus and chanting very melodiously the Mahamantra,

 

“Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare

Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare”,

 

they reached the place where Jagayi and Madhayi resided.

You may be the worst sinner, highly undisciplined; you may have committed all kinds of atrocities; yet, if a mahatma declares, “Oh, he is my child”, that will suffice for you

 

The rarest of the rare is getting a Uttama Guru. When you have a Guru, you can peacefully rest.

 

"Each type of soil specializes in producing certain type of crop. The Indian soil produces Mahans!"

 

We attach ourselves to Him who has no attachments to rid ourselves of our attachments.

 

If the disciple is truly attached to the Uttama Guru, this internal transformation will happen slowly but surely.

 

How do we know that the Guru is pleased with us?

 

No one else pleases me the most than the ones who Chant Mahamantra!

 

The only act a true devotee can do is to chant Nama to express the gratitude to the Guru for the grace showered on the devotee.

 

Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :

 

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