A japa even if done once, will never go waste

 

Chanting the Divines names of the Lord Vasudeva with single minded devotion is the best way

 

For them who are solely devoted to meditating on Me; who have their minds merged in Me, without delay, I become their deliverer from that sea of transmigration which is fraught with death

This is the sweetest consummation, all comprehensive perfection and the highest experience of the Godhead which the Name grants.

Nama Article 24th September 2011

 

Swami Papa Ramdas

 

The struggle the Sadhaka usually passes through, to keep the mind centred on the Truth, is not there for the votary of the Name. He starts with joy, walks on the path with joy, and reaches the goal which is joy, and ultimately becomes Joy itself. 


This is the sweetest consummation, all comprehensive perfection and the highest experience of the Godhead which the Name grants.

The greatness of Hari Nama Sankirtanam lies in the fact that this is one mărga (path) that apart from taking one to eternal bliss gives immeasurable joy even while practising it.

 

Having compassion of the Lord as the foundation, the one which has no rules, the one which can eradicate the force of Kali, Namakirtanam is the only resort. I think again and again about this with in Myself

Only the Divine Name Rama is the real nectar and the substance of the universe.

Sant Kabir

 

ऐसै मन लाइ लै राम रसनाँ,

कपट भगति कीजै कौन गुणाँ॥

ज्यूँ मृग नादैं बध्यौ जाइ, प्यंड परे बाकौ ध्याँन न जाइ।

ज्यूँ जल मीन तेत कर जांनि, प्रांन तजै बिसरै नहीं बानि॥

भ्रिगी कीट रहै ल्यौ लाइ, ह्नै लोलीन भिंरग ह्नै जाइ॥

राम नाम निज अमृत सार, सुमिरि सुमिरि जन उतरे पार॥

कहै कबीर दासनि को दास, अब नहीं छाड़ौ हरि के चरन निवास

 

 

O' man, immerse yourself into bliss of Chanting the Divine Name Rama. There is no use of showy and fraudulent devotion. Meditate God in such a way as a deer hears the musical sound and inspite of being pierced with an arrow it remains in the love of that music. Meditate God as a fish with out water leaves its life.

 

The worm that the wasp holds in a shell becomes another wasp in due course of time, as it constantly thinks of the wasp. When the mind thinks of the Lord with deep concentration it will, in course of time, become one with the Lord.

 

Only the Divine Name Rama is the real nectar and the substance of the universe. Remembering the Divine Name again and again devotees cross the ocean of the world. Kabir says, "I am devotee to the devotees of God. Now I shall not give up and will remain in God's feet."

Anyone of the above can hit you any moment Yearn for freedom from this shackle of life just as you would yearn for safety/freedom while caught in a hijacked aircraft

 

Glory unto thee….Oh! Mind! I salute thy unmatched courage!

 

It is not the count or time that matters. It is the intensity that matters.

 

So why not take to that alone and do it in an intense manner with complete faith, instead of confusing yourself with a multitude of practices?

 

Will the Lord appear to you at your sudden call? No. You must yearn for Him in your heart! It's enough If only you chant His name; At once your fetters will fall.

People perform actions for the sake of happiness; but they neither attain happiness nor succeed in ending their sorrow thereby

Nama Article 21st September 2011

 

Srimad Bhagavatam (2:7:15):

 

सुखाय कर्माणि करोति लोको न तैः सुखं वान्यद्-उपारमं वा

विन्देत भूयस् तत एव दुःखं यद् अत्र युक्तं भगवान् वदेन् नः

 

Sri Vidura asks Sri Suka in Srimad Bhagavatham that "People perform actions for the sake of happiness; but they neither attain happiness nor succeed in ending their sorrow thereby. On the other hand, they undergo suffering again and again as a result of those acts. Therefore, O worshipful sage, be pleased to tell me what is advisable under the circumstances"

As long as you search for peace outside yourself, you will not attain it. To find the peace within you, please chant the Mahamantra always, thinking of Lord Krishna and surrendering to Him.

 

The secret that will help you realize happiness

 

Everyone desires peace. But it does not come by easily. Neither the rich nor the poor enjoys peace

 

The true purpose of our existence is to realize God in ourselves. No other purpose is equal to or more significant than this.

 

To think 'What is the purpose of my Creation' is the very purpose of Lord's Creation

 

The true purpose of existence can be understood only if one attains a Guru
