Strive for your (spiritual) welfare. Why do you not chant this simple prayer " Hare Rama"

Nama Article 8th Jan 2017


Sant Samartha Ramdas

तुझे आप्त द्रव्यार्थि नुस्तेचि होती |

तनू हे चितेमाजि कीं बोळवीती ||

असें जाणुनी हीत कांहीं करा रे |

हरे राम हा मंत्र सोपा जपा रे ||


Your kinsmen are merely after (your) wealth,

Unceremoniously will they send your body on the funeral pyre,

Knowing all this, strive for your (spiritual) welfare.

Why do you not chant this simple prayer " Hare Rama"

Nevertheless He loves His devotees, who worship Him by Chanting His Divine Names

Nama Article 6th Jan 2017


Srimad Bhagavatham 10:38:22


न तस्य कश्चिद् दयितः सुहृत्तमो

न चाप्रियो द्वेष्य उपेक्ष्य एव वा

तथापि भक्तान् भजते यथा तथा

सुर-द्रुमो यद्वद् उपाश्रितोऽर्थ-दः


Neither is anyone beloved of Him, much less His dearest friend, nor again is anyone unwelcome, much less hateful or even worthy of being treated with indifference. Nevertheless He loves His devotees (alone, who worship Him by Chanting His Divine Names), in the same way as they do, just as a wish-yielding tree grants the desire of men (only) when approached (by them)

Recite the supreme names of God constantly. By his practice you will reach the abode of God.

Nama Article 4th Jan 2017


BHAGAVATHA DHARMAM - Third Skandham - Swami Abhedananda

A man who remembers God at every inhalation and exhalation of his breath cannot commit any sin. Ignorance is rooted out by knowledge. To keep the knowledge steady we must surrender ourselves to God. If ignorance is not rooted out, Vasanas (tendencies) cannot be destroyed. Vasanas prompt man to commit sins. Vasanas are destroyed by self-surrender more effectively than by self control. Think of the sublime form of God without break. Recite the supreme names of God constantly. By his practice you will reach the abode of God.

Worldly matters expand the mind, whereas the Divine Names of God destroys it, thus leading one to self realization

HH Maharanyam Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

Although water and ghee are liquids, they evoke opposite reactions when poured on fire. Ghee kindles the fire, whereas water extinguishes it. Likewise, although worldly matters and the Divine Names of God are just thoughts, they initiate opposite reactions in the mind.


Worldly matters expand the mind, whereas the Divine Names of God destroys it, thus leading one to self realization.

Constant Japa (recital of God’s Names) easily brings peace of mind. By Japa the mind gets cleared of all impurities and wavering. Therefore, place strong reliance on the holy Names of God.

Nama Article 23rd Dec 2016


BHAGAVATHA DHARMAM - Third Skandham - Swami Abhedananda

Union of Atma (individual soul) with Paramatma (Supreme Soul) is Pramananda.(supreme bliss)

Constant Japa (recital of God's Names) easily brings peace of mind. By Japa the mind gets cleared of all impurities and wavering. Therefore, place strong reliance on the holy Names of God.

Keep the mind under control using discrimination. Contentment of the soul is not derived from the enjoyment of pleasures. Renunciation is what gives contentment. If the mind goes astray give it a thrashing with the stick of discrimination. Mind disciplined by discrimination can be controlled easily.
