दशग्रीव लंकापुरीं मस्त जाला |

अकस्मात गेला पुरीमाजि घाला ||

चिरंजीव दे राज्य बीभीषणा रे |

हरे राम हा मंत्र सोपा जपा रे ||

 

Inflated with pride was Ravana in Lanka,

Sudden was his departure,

VibhishaNa (a devotee of Rama), was handed the kingdom, so

Only chant this simple prayer, Hare Rama

Vibhishana who held faith He was Rama! Ravana who did not He was Yama!

 

Hence, the vow "Whosoever takes refuge in me, I will not send him away", made him "Suvrata".

तुला ही तनू मानवी प्राप्त झाली |

बहूजन्मपुण्यें फळालागिं आली ||

तिला तूं कसा गोंविसि विषयीं रे |

हरे राम हा मंत्र सोपा जपा रे ||

 

This human form you have acquired,

The fruition of many lives of meritorious acts;

Why do you involve it in the pursuit of sensory pleasures?

Why not at least recite this simple chant of ' Hare Rama '||

Bhagavãn has given you all the faculties. The Lord has blessed you with eyes, ears, mouth, hands, legs, etc. Should you not utter the Divine Name? Would you get the human birth again?

 

"Even the dog eats food. But can it chant 'Bhagavan Nãma' – the Name of the Lord? ('Nãyum kooda soru thinnum Nãmam pãdumo?')

 

Human birth is meant only for the purpose of attainment of Bhagavan

 

மனிதப்பிறவியும் முக்தியில் ஆசையும், மகான்களின் ஸஙகமும் உந்தீபற! அரிதினும் அரிதாமென்று உந்தீபற!

 

Three things which are rare indeed and are obtained only due to the grace of God

 

To have the opportunity to serve a Mahatma in some way is indeed the rarest of the rarest.

 

When Bhagavan decides a janma to be the very last one, the man attains a Sadguru. Don’t loose the “present” moment, the gift of lord.

 

कौमार आचरेत् प्राज्ञो धर्मान् भागवतान् इह । दुर्लभं मानुषं जन्म तद् अप्य् अध्रुवम् अर्थदम् ॥

Every moment of our life that is spent without the thought of God is indeed a waste.

 

What is real happiness? True happiness lies within you. By merely removing ignorance this can be realized. The easiest way towards this goal is by chanting the Mahamantra.

 

The true purpose of our existence is to realize God in ourselves. No other purpose is equal to or more significant than this

 

To think 'What is the purpose of my Creation' is the very purpose of Lord's Creation

 

The true purpose of existence can be understood only if one attains a Guru

 

What is spirituality and spiritual path? How can I continuously progress on this path?

 

Why is life so complicated? Why is there so much confusion in life? Can’t it be all simple? – Simplest and the most straightforward path FOR ALL

 

To realize the Lord Krishna within you – that is the aim of life.

 

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

Having compassion of the Lord as the foundation, the one which has no rules, the one which can eradicate the force of Kali, Namakirtanam is the only resort.

 

For all questions he had only one reply, "One should perform Krishna Namakirtan"

 

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.

 

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

 

Essence of the Vedas and all the holy scriptures is “Repeat the name of Narayana.” Without the remembrance of Hari, all other practices, such as rituals and austerities, are only futile exertions.

 

Uttering the Name of the God is real essense

रवीऊदयोअस्त तों पोटधंदा |

From sunrise till sunset, you work to earn a living,

Flattering, supplicating, and obliging others,

You know not what is in store for you in the future, so

Only chant this simple prayer, Hare Rama

Catch hold of this divine Name and go on doing your work in the world.

 

Death shows, never, any compassion, Be mindful and only chant this simple prayer, Hare Rama

 

Hanuman worked tirelessly for Rama. He also performed incessant Rama japa. We should also be like this.

 

Nothing we earn today would come with us to the final destination but only the Divine Name WILL

 

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

 

While you concentrate on your studies and prepare yourself for your future, you also need God's grace.

 

As long as you search for peace outside yourself, you will not attain it. To find the peace within you, please chant the Mahamantra always, thinking of Lord Krishna and surrendering to Him.

 

People perform actions for the sake of happiness; but they neither attain happiness nor succeed in ending their sorrow thereby

 

Lord Rama says, "Any accumulated wealth will dissolve in due time. Any position of power attained will come to an end. All the relations (children, wife) come to an end in death. There is nothing in this world that is permanent."
