But the ambrosia of God’s name knows no such limit. The deeper one drinks of it, the more the thirst for it grows, but it must sink deep into the heart.

Commenting upon Mirabai's song which was sung at the prayer, Gandhiji said that in that song the devotee asks the soul to drink deep of the nectar of God's name. Physical food and drink result in satiety, and, if over-indulged, in illness.

 

But the ambrosia of God's name knows no such limit. The deeper one drinks of it, the more the thirst for it grows, but it must sink deep into the heart. When that happens, all delusion and attachment, lust and envy, fall off from us. Only one must persevere and have patience. Success is the inevitable result of such effort.

As your heart beats as you sleep, dream or being awake let your tongue always Chant the Divine Names of Hari.

 

Hereafter, the Divine Name Rama is my only companion, nothing else.

 

I have found, yes, I have found the wealth of the “Divine Name – Rama” the gem; My true guru gave me a priceless thing.

 

Drink the nectar of the Divine Name Rama and always sit among righteous company….

 

The  one,  whom all the riches of the three worlds cannot distract from the remembrance of the Lord's  lotus feet even for half a second, is the foremost of  all the vaishanavas.

 

Though he has performed such regnant (mighty) tasks, he hasn't diverged himself from uttering the Rama Nama even for a split of a second.

 

One should constantly repeat the names of God irrespective of any activity that he might be involved in.

 

Remembering the Hare Rama Maha mantra always is Punya (Virtue), Forgetting Hare Rama Maha Mantra is sin.

 

If you become that anxious on forgetting to chant the Divine Name even for a second, then you are blessed.

 

 

Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :

 

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