Remember again and again that wealth is always evil. There is not the slightest trace of happiness in it.

Nama Article 23rd December 2012

With blessings of Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji, Deiva Tamizh Isai Vizha 7-9 pm daily, Dec 21 - 27 @ Mahodaya Hall, Ashok Nagar. All are welcome.


Bhaja Govindham – Adi Shankara


अर्थमनर्थं भावय नित्यं, नास्ति ततः सुखलेशःसत्यम् |

पुत्रादपि धनभांजां भीतिः, सर्वत्रैषा विहिता रीतिः ||

भज गोविन्दं भज गोविन्दं गोविन्दं भज मूढ़मते


Remember again and again that wealth is always evil (cause for troubles). There is not the slightest trace of happiness in it.


For the rich there is fear even from their sons, this is the rule every where.


O deluded minded friend, Chant the Divine Name Govinda, Chant the Divine Name Govinda, Chant the Divine Name Govinda.


Please check these: Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji


By chanting the Name of Bhagavãn one attains Atma Jnana, Jivan Mukti state


Accumulate the wealth of the Lord's Name; that wealth does not go anywhere


Nothing we earn today would come with us to the final destination but only the Divine Name WILL


From sunrise till sunset, you work to earn a living, Flattering, supplicating, and obliging others


For the ones who are lost in the worldly activities, indeed there is no higher gain than the Chanting of Divine Names


Be happy with what ever you get as a result of your past actions (karma).


As long as a man is fit and capable to earn money, everyone in the family show affection towards him.


Lord Rama says, "Any accumulated wealth will dissolve in due time. Any position of power attained will come to an end. All the relations (children, wife) come to an end in death. There is nothing in this world that is permanent."


I spent all my energy and all my moments in life acquiring all of these possessions and wealth and now......I cannot get back even one moment


Just as wealth accrued by a man is useful to the world and for future generations, a man's bhakti and the power of Nama gives strength to innumerable people


Divine Name Rama is the real wealth in this world for all because it is the treasure which will not be reduced by spending and which no one can loot.


The Name of the Lord - this alone is my wealth. I do not tie it up to hide it, nor do I sell it to make my living.


Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :


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