Guru Nanak realised the great truth of the brotherhood of religions. He preached the universal brotherhood of man and the fatherhood of God to all people.

Guru Nanak felt that it would be improper to postpone Nama Smarana or remembering the Name of the Lord, even by a single breath, because no one could tell whether the breath that had gone in would come out or not. Nanak says, "We are men of one breath. I know not a longer time-limit".

 

Guru Nanak calls him alone a true saint who remembers the Name of the Lord with every incoming and outgoing breath. The ideal is practical and within the reach of every man. He tells the people not to lose any time but to begin at once. He also says that there are no barriers of race, class, caste, creed or colour which check the progress of any in reaching the goal. He realised the great truth of the brotherhood of religions. He preached the universal brotherhood of man and the fatherhood of God to all people.

The benefits of Chanting the Divine Name may be grouped under physical, moral, mental and spiritual aspects of the inner communion

Nama Article 8th September 2009

 

Source: The Jap Ji – The Message of Guru Nanak

 

The benefits of Chanting the Divine Name may be grouped under physical, moral, mental and spiritual aspects of the inner communion.

 

Divine Name (Naam) keeps the mind and body in a state of equipoise (state of being balanced). Peace reigns supreme in its devotee; the ramifications of mind are done away with forever. All lusts cease to have their hold on the mind. The brain gets a soothing balm. It puts an end to wasteful hurry, and with it go all nervous tensions and mental strains and stress.

 

Naam gives one immunity from all bodily and worldly pains and troubles. By withdrawing the attention within, the mind is stilled and the soul is freed of all mental conflicts. Even the sense of egotism itself-the most ancient malady-loses itself into airy nothing and with it, the perpetual dance of coming in and going out of the world comes to an end. The process of transmigration of tlie soul is but the natural concomitant of the self-assertive will or egotism.

By practice of the Word, one rises into universal consciousness and develops right understanding;

By practice of the Word, one develops clairvoyance and transvision of the whole creation;

By practice of the Word, one is freed from sorrow and suffering;

O, great is the Power of the Word,

But few there be that know it.

Sri Guru Granth Sahib

 

I am a mere insect, a worm. O True Guru, I seek Your Sanctuary. Please be merciful, and bless me with the Light of the Naam, the Name of the Lord.

 

O my Best Friend, O Divine Guru, please enlighten me with the Name of the Lord.

 

Through the Guru's Teachings, the Naam is my breath of life. The Kirtan of the Lord's Praise is my life's occupation.

The Path of the Divine Name

Title: ‘Nãma Mãrgam’ (the Path of the Divine Name)
Author:Sri Charansingh ji Maharaj
Publisher:Radhaswami Satsanga, Beas

Sri Charansingh ji Maharaj says, “The matchstick has fire within it. But we are not able to see it, and so not able to make use of the fire. We will not be able to see the fire as long as we do not scratch the matchstick against the match box walls by discovering this fact using our intellect. In the same way, Nãma always rings in our hearts. It rings in the hearts of the Sãdhus just as it does, in the hearts of bandits. There is no discrimination based on place, caste, religion etc.

Different Mahãns from different places, castes and religions have tried to induce in us, the quest to attain the only spiritual concept namely, the Divine Name. It is the same ‘Nãma’ that Sikhs term as ‘Hari Kirtan’, Sages call as ‘Rama Nãma’, Islamic preachers call as ‘inner voice’ and the Christ calls as ‘plasms’.

Just as fire is hidden in the matchstick, the Lord has hidden the treasure of Nãma within us and has given the its secret to our Guru. Rather than reading different texts using our mind and intellect, the only way to attain God is by surrendering unto the lotus feet of Mahãtmas, getting the Upadesa and performing Nãma Japa continuously.”

Nama Article – 20th March 2007

Source: The Jap Ji – The Message of Guru Nanak

It is from this Word that the whole creation springs up and returns to It on its dissolution. It is resounding within all of us and man’s body is verily God’s living temple. The saints of all denominations speak of the same, as the only means by which to reach the ultimate Reality.

The Mohammedans call It “Bang-i-Asmani” or the Voice coming from the Heaven. Shamas Tabrez and Khawaja Hafz Shirazi speak of the same as has already been quoted in the introduction. The Hindus express the same by the words “Nad” (Music of the Spheres), “Akaslz Bani” (the Voice coining from the heavens) and “Udgit” (Music of the Beyond).

St. John , in the Bible, defined it thus:
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
All things were made by Him, and without Him was nothing made that was made.”

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