Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji
In spite of constantly driving the ants away from sweets they keep coming towards it. But if we put some ant-repellant around the sweets, the ants cannot get inside to the sweets.
Similarly, lust, anger and fear would constantly pester our mind. We cannot avoid the attack of these on our mind by our intelligence. But if we keep chanting the names of the Lord (Bhagavan Naama) constantly, the Bhagavan Naama would prevent these detrimental tendencies from afflicting our mind. Bhagavan Naama is our sole refuge all the time, everywhere.
Sin does not touch the person who constantly chants the name of Hari. The person shall also have no dearth for prosperity. Is there an easier way than this?
