How to put an end to attachments?

Nama Article - 30th September 2007

रोधयति मां योगो सांख्यं धर्म एव च।


स्वाध्यायस् तपस् त्यागो नेष्टापूर्तं दक्षिणा॥


व्रतानि यज्ञश्छन्दांसि तीर्थानि नियमा यमाः।


यथावरुन्धे सत्सङ्गः सर्वसङ्गापहो हि माम॥


Neither Yoga (consisting of eight steps enumerated in the yoga sastras of Patanjali) nor Sankhya system of philosophy, nor righteousness, study of vedas, penances, austerities and renunciation nor pouring oblations into the sacred fire and works of public utility (such of digging of wells and tanks and laying out of gardens) nor bestowal of gifts, observing fasts, worship of demigods, muttering secret spells, resorting to holy waters and places of pilgrimage, sacred observances (such as purity of body and mind) and the forms of self-abnegation gain Me over as does Satsanga (being in the company of Holy persons) captures Me. Satsanga actually puts an end to all other attachments.


Satsangam is the place where people join together and Chant the Divine Names.


Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan  :


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