"ராம" என்று ஜபம் செய்து வந்தாலே ஜீவன் முக்தி சித்திக்குமா ?

 

Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

 

ராமரஹஸ்யோபநிஷத்தில் "ரா" என்பது "தத்" என்ற வாக்யத்தையும் "ம" என்பது "த்வம்" என்ற வாக்யத்தையும் "ராம" என்று சேர்ந்தால் "தத்வமஸி" என்ற மஹாவாக்யத்தையும் குறிக்கும் என்று கூறப்பட்டுள்ளது

 

आद्यो रा तत्पदार्थः स्यान्मकारस्त्वंपदार्थवान्

तयोः संयोजनमसीत्यर्थे तत्त्वविदो विदुः

 

Rama Rahasya Upanishad says, “The first letter ‘ra’ stands for the term ‘tat’ (That), and ‘ma’ stands for the term ‘tvam’ (You). Together “Rama” means the mahavakya “tatvamasi”

The aim of spiritual education is liberation or Jivan Mukti.

 

By chanting the Name of Bhagavãn one attains Atma Jnana, Jivan Mukti state

 

Those who are Jivan Muktas today began only in this manner. (Every journey starts with a single step.)

 

The one whose lips are incessantly chanting the Lord's Name is verily the Jivan Mukta (liberated soul).

 

How true are the words of a Mahan that the one on whose tongue God's Divine Name resides is verily the one who has been freed from bondage –a Jivan Mukta!

 

A self realized Jivan Mukta appears once in a generation.  If you are lucky, you will get the company of such a person.

King Yayaati has made the Divine nectar, which is Chanting the Divine Name of the Lord, available to all the people for making their life happy, peaceful and prosperous. King Yayaati wanted to make the whole kingdom as a heaven by making all people Chant the Divine Name of the Lord.

 

The Divine Name Keshava removes all the troubles and sufferings of all the people and blesses them with the best of boons. The Divine Name is all blissful and parmartha tatva. The Divine Name of God Vishnu is just like a Amrut, that removes all contaminations, and it is propagated by King Yayaati for the benefit of all people.

மறம் பேசித் திரிவாரோடு இணங்க வேண்டாம்

வாதாடி வழக்கு அழிவு சொல்ல வேண்டாம்

திறம் பேசிக் கலகமிட்டுத் திரிய வேண்டாம்

தெய்வத்தை ஒருநாளும் மறக்க வேண்டாம்

ஏசலிட்ட உற்றாரை நத்த வேண்டாம்

குறம் பேசி வாழ்கின்ற வள்ளி பங்கன்

குமரவேள் நாமத்தை கூறாய் நெஞ்சே

Manusmriti stressing that the Word is the origin of all Forms

Nama Article 11th February 2013

 

Manusmriti – 2:87

 

सर्वेषां तु स नामानि कर्माणि च पृथक् पृथक् |

वेदशब्देभ्य एवादौ पृथक् संस्थाश्च निर्ममे ||

 

Lord Manu says, the names of things and beings and the working of their acts, as differentiated from each other, were created from the revealed word (Words in Vedas are the words of God himself).

 

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

 

The omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient Lord understands his worship and out of sheer mercy makes the ‘jeeva’ realize Him through the idol.

 

Feeling that these Forms alone will not suffice for redemption of the world He also became the Divine Names such as 'Hari!' 'Siva!' and is ever alive in these Names.

 

It is verily the Name of the Supreme One – the one who creates, sustains and rests it in Himself

 

Name and the Named are but one

 

God, Guru, Srimad Bhagavatam and God's Divine Name — all are one and the same.

 

The Divine Name of the Lord ('Bhagavan Nãma') has the power to redeem one and all.

 

God's Name is superior than God's form

 

Thus we are able to comprehend to a certain extent that there is no difference between the Name of the Lord and the Lord. Don't we?

 

Each Name has a form. Each Form has a name

Nama Article 9th July 2012


Tanthrasaram

इदमेव परं सारं सर्वेषां मन्त्रसन्ततेः

वेदानां हृदयं सौम्ये रामनामसुधापदम्


This is the essence of all Vedas. This is the greatest among all mantras. Nectarine Rama Nama is the heart of Vedas.


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

Rama Nama is the very essence (‘saram’) of all Epics, Shastras and the Vedas

Our ancient Sages and Rishis have glorified the Rama Nama

Whether your interest be in Yoga, Meditation or Vedanta, chanting Mahamantra for some time will purify your mind and enable you to proceed in your own path comfortably

When its recitation commences with the Divine Name Hari and concludes with the same, it is a clear and significant indication that the essence of all Vedas is about chanting the Divine Name of Hari.

Essence of Srimad Bhãgavatam

What is the essence of all the Shastras, the Brahma Sutra, the Bhagavad Gita, the Upanishads, etc.

The essence of the endless Vedas is this : Seek the shelter of God and repeat His name with all thy heart.
