Nama Article 9th January 2012
निरधनको धनि राम हमारो ॥
खान न खर्चत चोर न लूटत । साथे आवत काम ॥
दिन दिन होत सवाई दीढी । खरचत को नहीं दाम ॥
सूरदास प्रभु मुखमों आवत । और रसको नही काम हमारो ॥
Divine Name Rama is the real wealth in this world for all because it is the treasure which will not be reduces by spending and which no one can loot. This wealth will always be with us at all times and will increase multifold day by day and one need not spend to earn this wealth. Surdas always relishes by Chanting this Divine name and does not wish for anything else.

Rama is the help of the helpless. Surdas says that when a man has exhausted all his resources and invokes the Name of God, His grace descends upon him.
Nama Article 3rd February 2009
निर्बल के बल राम
I have heard that Rama is the help of the helpless. I can produce the evidence of those saintly people who were helped by him in their adversity. So long as the elephant relied upon his own strength, his case was hopeless, but when in his helplessness he invoked the assistance of Rama, he responded when hardly his Name was half pronounced. When Draupadi felt helpless and cried out His Name, He felt the call in his seat and God having multiplied her clothing Dushasana grew tired of hopelessly trying to strip her naked.
Man relies on his
- own strength
- or his austerities
- or the strength of his arms
- or fourthly his wealth.
Surdas says that when a man has exhausted all his resources and invokes the Name of God, His grace descends upon him.
सुने री मैंने निर्बल के बल राम।
पिछली साख भरूं संतन की आड़े संवारे काम।
जबलग गज अपनो बरत्यो नेक सरो नहिं काम।
निर्बल ह्रै बल राम पुकार्यो आये आधे नाम।।
द्रु पद-सुता निर्बल भई ता दिन गहलाये निज धाम।
दु:शासन की भुजा थकित भइ वसनरूप भये श्याम।।
अप-बल, तप-बल और बाहु-बल चौथा है बल दाम।
सूर किशोर कृपा से सब बल हारे को हरिनाम।।
