Though recognizing the pleasures of sense to consist of sorrow (alone) is yet unable to relinquish them should therefore lovingly worship Me by means of hearing and chanting My names and stories etc

Nama Article 4th Dec 2016


Srimad Bhagavatham 11:20:28


जातश्रद्धो मत्कथासु निर्विण्णः सर्वकर्मसु।

वेद दुःखात्मकान्कामान्परित्यागेऽप्यनीश्वरः।।

ततो भजेत मां प्रीतः श्रद्धालुर् दृढ-निश्चयः ।

जुषमाणश् च तान् कामान् दुःखोदर्कांश् च गर्हयन् ।।


He who has reverence for My stories developed (in his heart) and has lost (every) charm for all activities (but not for their rewards) and, though recognizing the pleasures of sense to consist of sorrow (alone) is yet unable to relinquish them should therefore lovingly worship Me (by means of hearing and chanting My names and stories etc.), full of faith and firm in his conviction (that everything will be accomplished through Devotion alone) and enjoying those pleasures while condemning them as attended with misery.

I became the votary of Thy name and was blessed beyond measure

Nama Article 3rd Dec 2016

Swami Papa Ramdas


There is a charm, a magic power, in Thy name. It catches hold of people and turns them into Gods.

Thy name roots out all desires and bestows immortal peace and joy. The darkness of the soul is dispelled by Thy name flooding it with Divine illumination.

What is it that Thy name cannot do? All good things flow from it. When Thy name enters the heart of the miser, he becomes a benefactor of the world. It transforms the cruel man into an image of compassion. Thy name removes hate from the heart, infusing love. It awakens the soul and drives off torpor and ignorance. Where there is narrowness of outlook, Thy name grants universal vision.

When Thy name, sung by Thy devotees, rings in my ears, I am not only thrilled, but my entire being is filled with ecstasy, O! What power is in Thy name! Saints sing its glory tirelessly. And I, Thy child, attune my tiny voice with theirs in extolling Thy name. Thy name is the sole sustainer of my life. It nourishes my heart and mind. It sends thrills through every vein and tissue of my physical being.

What more can I say? It has moulded me into Thy likeness, into Thy form and spirit. All victory and glory be to Thy name!

Thy name destroys misery and yields unending joy. I became the votary of Thy name and was blessed beyond measure. Thy name is Thyself, Thy very form, life and being. I am saturated with Thy name and have become Thyself — the resplendent Truth — the goal of seekers. I am That!

You do not know that you are Ram. So, you must ceaselessly remember Him until you are awakened to the consciousness that you are Ram yourself.

"In taking Ram Nam you think you are taking the name of the deity living in some far-off heaven. But you are really repeating the name of your own immortal Self, that is, Atma Ram. You do not know that you are Ram. So, you must ceaselessly remember Him until you are awakened to the consciousness that you are Ram yourself. "

Here, sadhana means continuously chanting Nama, and Nama alone!

Nama Article 26th Nov 2016


Source: NAMA AND JNANA

Mahatmas say, as one chants Nama incessantly, his ignorance will be wiped away, and he will attain wisdom in his anthima kaala. We may question, if one chants incessantly, why should Bhagavan wait till his last breath to bestow wisdom? Why not during his lifetime? 'Anthima kaala' mentioned here in this context is not 'death-bed'. When one takes to continuous chanting, there is a beginning phase of sadhana (spiritual practice), there is a mid phase wherein he delves into sadhana, and an end phase wherein he perfects sadhana. It is during this final stage, that God will bestow wisdom on him. Here, sadhana means continuously chanting Nama, and Nama alone!

Initiation puts you in possession of the direct means of attaining the grandest and the highest thing which can be attained

Nama Article 19th Nov 2016


THE GLORY OF MANTRA DIKSHA

By Swami Sivananda

Initiation puts you in possession of the direct means of attaining the grandest and the highest thing which can be attained, attaining which you obtain everything, knowing which you know everything and gaining which nothing more remains to be gained.

Initiation leads you to the full knowledge and experience that you are neither the mind nor the body, that you are Satchidananda Atman, full of Light and full of the highest Bliss. May the Grace of the Sadguru, the visible God, bestow upon you all the highest fruit of Selfrealisation.
