Prasna Uttara Malika (A garland of questions and answers) – Adisankara

 

कः शुरो यो भीतत्राता त्राता च कः सद्गुरुः .

को हि जगद्गुरुरुक्तः शंभुः ज्ञानं कुतः शिवादेव

 

मुक्तिं लभेत कस्मान्मुकुन्दभक्तेः मुकुन्दः कः .

यस्तारयेदविद्यां का चाविद्या यदात्मनोऽस्फूर्तिः

 

Who is brave ? One who protect those in fright

And who is the protector ? It is the preceptor (Guru)

Indeed, Who is said to be the World-preceptor ? Siva

Whence Knowledge ? Only from Siva

 

How can one get release ? By devotion to Mukunda

Who is Mukunda ? One who takes us across ignorance

And what is ignorance ? The non-manifestation of the Self

 

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

 

A good teacher is the one who practices what he preaches. It is obvious that Siva, being the Supreme Guru, (Jagadguru) Himself chants the Rama Nama.

 

Does not Lord Shiva Himself always repeat the Name "Rama" and chant the Divine Name into the ears of those dying at Kashi, thereby granting them liberation?

 

Atonce Lord Shiva said "it is enough if one chants the name "Rama."

 

You can chant the ‘Rama’ mantra to any deity. In fact, Lord Siva Himself chants the ‘Rama’ mantra all the time.

 

Lord Siva himself does not cease to chant the Divine Name Rama even for a moment out of such taste and love for that Name

 

Greatness of Chanting the Divine Name of Lord Shiva

 

Rama is indeed the highest teaching

 

Our ancient Sages and Rishis have glorified the Rama Nama

 

Rama Nama can grant all wishes at all times. Rama Nama can relieve you from any difficulty. The supreme Rama Nama could bestow all auspicious things. Let this Rama Nama be hailed everywhere.

 

No one can comprehend the glories of the Divine Name of Rama. All should Chant the Divine Name of Rama.

 

Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :

 

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