You should take shelter in Him, who is always so fond of His devotees and adore Him by Chanting His Divine Names

Nama Article 12th March 2013

Srimad Bhagavatham 4:8:22, 23


तम् एव वत्साश्रय भृत्य-वत्सलं मुमुक्षुभिर् मृग्य-पदाब्ज-पद्धतिम्

अनन्य-भावे निज-धर्म-भाविते मनस्य् अवस्थाप्य भजस्व पूरुषम्


Sunithi advices Dhruva, "My dear child, you should take shelter in Him, who is always so fond of His devotees. Persons seeking liberation from the cycle of birth and death always seek the lotus feet of the Lord.


Without deviating for a moment engage yourself in the pure act of devotion by contemplating your mind only on Him and adore Him by Chanting His Divine Names."


नान्यं ततः पद्म-पलाश-लोचनाद् दुःख-च्छिदं ते मृगयामि कञ्चन

यो मृग्यते हस्त-गृहीत-पद्मया श्रियेतरैर् अङ्ग विमृग्यमाणया


I find none other than the Lord with lotus-like eyes, who can wipe out your sorrow. Even Sri (Goddess of prosperity), who is holding a lotus in Her hand and who is eagerly sought by others, seeks after the Lord.

Those who hear, recite and contemplate on and help others remember your auspicious names and forms are the ones who attains the Supreme Bliss


When you chant do not bother whether your mind wavers or not. Nama will take care of that.....proceed doubtlessly with faith in the words of the Guru


Contemplate Krishna's name every moment; your mind will become steady
