Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji
One can fall in any of the three categories:
1.      One can Chant the Divine names with full control of the senses
2.      One need not care about the control of senses and keep Chanting the Divine names
3.      One can leave the responsibility of controlling the senses to Lord Ranganatha and keep Chanting the Divine names
As long as we keep Chanting the Divine Names there will be no wants.

Sri Swamiji's discourse series "Azhaikkindraan Arangan" telecasted on STAR VIJAY TV at ***7:15 am*** everyday

This Lila of the Lord was performed not for the sake of the Azhwar but for our sake: for stressing a point to us. What is the message of the Lord to us, in this?—’if you are deeply devoted to ME and happen to stray away, I will bring you back. I will never give up on you! ‘Shipram bhavati dharmatma!’. I will make you virtuous [‘dharmatma’].’

 

In Kali, Bhakti means singing the Divine Name of the Lord [‘Bhagavan Nama kirtan’], listening to Bhagavat stories (‘katha sravanam’), having darshan of the Lord in Temples.

 

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

 

To keep the temple as the real temple, Nama Kirtan has to be done there too

Would one wonder if he is uttering the Name of the Lord in the Temple or the Name of a Conscious God?

Krishna does not complain, but decides, "Well! I will sit on your tongue in the form of Nama (Name)

Going to temples, performing puja etc. cleanse our mind and a pure mind is essential if one is to attain jnana.

In this Yuga, three activities are alone enough to attain the Lord –worship in temples, Satsang, and Nama Kirtan. Satsang here, means the reading of Srimad Bhagavatam, listening to the stories and qualities of the Lord, the lives of great Mahans etc.

 

The mother holds the child by the hand and leads and protects the child from falling in any pit that may be found on the way. Likewise, God takes hold of his devotee and removes all the hurdles in his/her way.

Kulasekara Azhwar prays that his mind be ever in love with these Mahathmas who preach this path

Nama Article 8th March 2012

 

Starting from March 11, 2012, Sri Swamiji's new discourse series "Azhaikkindraan Arangan" will be telecast on STAR VIJAY TV at ***7:30 am*** everyday

 

ஆதி அந்தம் அனந்தம் அற்புதமான வானவர் தம்பிரான்

பாதமாமலர் சூடும் பத்தியிலாத பாவிகள் உயிந்திட

தீதில் நன்னெறி காட்டி எங்கும் திரிந்து அரங்கன் எம்மானுக்கே

காதல் செய்தொண்டர்க்கு எப்பிறப்பிலும் காதல் செய்யும் என் நெஞ்சமே.

 

There are people who have not surrendered to the Lotus feet of The Lord who is infinite and beyond description by words.

 

On the world filled with these type of people Mahathmas descends and propagates the right path of love and surrender towards the Lotus feet of The Lord Ranganatha. Kulasekara Azhwar prays that his mind be ever in love with these Mahathmas who preach this path.

The service that God entrusted upon my shoulders is to make the whole world sing the glory of His Divine Name!

 

Mahătmas come only to propagate the dharma of Năma Sankirtan

 

Propagation is absolutely necessary if any message has to reach the people. This applies to the Divine Name of the Lord, too!

 

Chanting lips make many hands work

 

Oh, ye, sing! Oh, ye, sing! The HYMN! to fulfil the vow of the One who swore to make it known to the world!

 

By the mere touch of a Bhagavata, others can become Bhagavatas.

 

If you cannot remember that God is everywhere, Just chant His Name, that will do everything.

 

If you chant the Maha Mantra constantly, the whole world will be at your feet

 

Mahatma Gandhi won over them by the sheer power of Rama Nama and by virtue of truthfulness sans any weapon and got us independence

 

Rather than speak at length about the greatness of the divine name, prove it by chanting

 

If Vivekananda succeeded in all his accomplishments in the world through mere fruit of Rama Năma japa, is not one able to comprehend the glory of Năma?

 

The Swamiji was struck with wonder at the power of the Mahamantra. He at once took hold of the Mahamantra. He wandered all over the country

 

Spiritual transformation (by way of Chanting the Nama) is like treating at the root

 

The dassi came to have a darshan of Bodhendral and after prostrating to him she left this world through Kabala moksham in front of her guru like how a yogi leave this world

 

Due to My causeless mercy, I am very much pleased and enthusiastic to spread the glory of that Dharma which manifests itself in the Kirtan of my Divine Names

“It is all right even if you do not hold your senses under control. Keep doing Nãma Sankirtan. The ‘indriyãs’ (senses) will automatically come under control!”

Nama Article 18th September 2011

 

Thirumalai – Thondaradipodi azhwar


காவலிற் புலனை வைத்துக் கலிதனைக் கடக்கப் பாய்ந்து

நாவலிட் டுழிதரு கின்றோம் நமன்தமர் தலைகள் மீதே

மூவுல குண்டு மிழ்ந்த முதல்வநின் நாமம்கற்ற

ஆவலிப் புடைமை கண்டாய் அரங்கமா நகரு ளானே.

 

Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

 

While others have explained – ‘Kãvalil pulanai vaithu kalithannai kadakapãindu’, as ‘perform Nãma Sankirtan holding the senses under control’,

 

Periavãcchãnpillai Swamy has explained it as – 'Kãval il pulanai vaithu', i.e, “It is all right even if you do not hold your senses under control. Keep doing Nãma Sankirtan. The ‘indriyãs’ (senses) will automatically come under control!” The Swamy’s perception of each pãsuram and his elucidation (‘bãshya’) for them are wonderful and charming.

 

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

 

I feel ashamed to stand before God and seek for his blessings the next time. What should I do?

 

If you sincerely pray to get the obstacle removed, your prayer shall be fulfilled

 

To protect one from five senses one need to keep a vigilant watchman or a ferocious dog and that is nothing but the divine names of the Lord.

 

The Mahamaya (greatest illusion), the mind, can be brought under control slowly and steadily by Namakirtan alone.

 

Drench your senses in the enchanting form of Krishna, His stories, His glory and His Divine Name. The mind is effortlessly controlled!

 

What is difficult for human beings? The constant control of the mind.

 

The name of God is more powerful than the senses. It will become all right in time if you practise regularly.

 

If we think of God and pray to Him for His guidance and His grace, we shall derive strength to battle against these temptations and conquer our weaknesses

 

Likewise, never once does a true disciple doubt, if his Guru has conquered his senses!

 

If the mind troubles?

>Moksha (Liberation) is certain for one who utters the Name of the Lord in his last moment of life

>

 

Thirumalai – Thondaradipodi azhwar

 

துப்புடை யாரை அடைவ தெல்லாம் சோர்விடத் துத்துணை யாவ ரென்றே

 

ஒப்பிலே னாகிலும் நின்ன டைந்தேன் ஆனைக்கு நீஅருள் செய்த மையால்

 

எய்ப்பு என்னை வந்து நலியும் போதுஅங்கு ஏதும்நா னுன்னை நினைக்க மாட்டேன்

 

அப்போதைக்கு இப்போதே சொல்லி வைத்தேன் அரங்கத் தரவணைப் பள்ளி யானே.

 

Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

 

Moksha (Liberation) is certain for one who utters the Name of the Lord in his last moment of life. We may think that it is easy. But, we do not know if we would remember to utter Name of the Lord in our last moment. Therefore, ‘I utter it right now. Please bless me so that your Divine Name comes to my lips in my last moment.’ Thus, does Thondaradi Ãzhwãr surrender to Lord!.

Its always better for all those, who Chant to Divine Name, even when they are all well.

 

துஞ்சும்போது அழைமின் துயர்வரில் நினைமின்

துயரிலீர் சொல்லிலும் நன்றாம்,

நஞ்சுதான் கண்டீர் நம்முடைவினைக்கு

நாராயணாவென்னும் நாமம்.

(திருமங்கையாழ்வார் அருளிச்செய்த பெரிய திருமொழி)

 

Meaning:

 

Call out the Divine Name of the Lord with out fear, even when you are in death bed.

 

Chant the Divine Name while you face any misery.

 

Its better to Chant the Divine Name for removal of miseries and to rise up, with out cajoling ourselves with the thought that miseries are result of past sins / karmas.

 

Its always better for all those, who Chant to Divine Name, even when they are all well.

 

The sweet Divine Name which is the best to us, equally threatens our karmas.

 

Thus hails Sri Thirumangai Azhwar, the one who destroys the evil effects of Kali, about the greatness of Chanting the Divine Name “Narayana”
