Nama Article - 26th July 2007

Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji


Nanadhanar (the devout bhakta of Lord Siva) spread the path of Nama kirtan across all sects of the people. Ever since people joined Nanda in singing Nãma Sankirtan none went to attend to their work on the fields on time. So those affected by this tried to bring 'sense' into Nanda through a local leader of their hutments.


All of them joined together and approached Nanda. "Nanda! You are forever singing the Nãma. Will singing the Nãma earn food?" ('Nãmam pãdi kondirundãl soru kidaikuma?')


What does Nandhanar reply?


 "Even the dog eats food. But can it chant 'Bhagavan Nãma' - the Name of the Lord? ('Nãyum kooda soru thinnum Nãmam pãdumo?')
Lord has blessed this human birth with the gift of speech only to utter His Name.
Lord has given us the ability to speak only for Chanting his names"

Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :


Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
