Sri Narayana Tirtha’s Krishna Leela Tarangini – Namasiddhanta Gitam
The Gitam 'Ramakrishna Govindeti' is perhaps one of the most enchanting and sumptuous descriptions of the greatness of Chanting the Divine names making it the Namasiddhanta Gitam. The enunciation could not have been clearer or more emphatic. Says Sri Narayana Tirtha : The three holy names — Rama (Ganga) , Krishna (Yamuna), Govinda (Saraswathi) — constitute a Prayag, a most holy and venerated confluence.
A dip in this Prayag, in the form of a reverential utterance of these three sacred names, has no reference to direction, location and time – the chanting of these three names can be done at any place, any time and facing any direction and is with in easy reach of all. He reiterates Namasiddhantha and says that the practice of Chanting the Divine Names ensures beatitude – liberation through jnana, sumptuously aided by the ocean of the Satguru’s compassion.
It brings the Supreme experience with in easy reach of the devotee. Even the Paramahamsas, yogins (the liberated souls) derive bliss from a bath in the confluence of these three hallowed names. It fulfills all worldly and heavenly aspirations!
It is the essence of all Vedas and scriptures and grants lasting peace by giving deliverance from all sufferings. Chanting of Divine names is not dependent on baths, sandhyas, japas, ceremonies like tarpana, homa (by the medium of agni : fire) — and is the safest path where one cannot commit any mistake. The Namasankirtana-Prayag produces the complete Brahmanandam which is constant and beyond rise or fall.
One can immerse in this Divine Prayag by remembering the Divine Name in the heart, with the tongue uttering these holy names and the whole body engaged by happily dancing to the tune of Divine Names.
The Prayag of Namasankirtanam will by itself grant Devotion, detachment and Jnana (supreme knowledge) and will yield the fruit of true self-realization without getting tied up with sacrificial rites, yoga or renunciation.
The Prayag of these three names helps one to realise the Supreme by easily crossing the treacherous samsara (worldly life). Says, Sadhu Narayana Tirtha, that Chanting the Divine names, dispels the darkness of all types of sins and brings the light of Joy.
