Chanting the name of God is the easiest pathway to approach to the Lord; It involves no strain or pain.

Nama Article 8th April 2013

Haripath - Sant Gnyaneshwar


सात पाच तीन दशकांचा मेळा ।

एकतत्त्वी कळा दावी हरि ॥ १ ॥

तैसे नव्हे नाम सर्व मार्गा वरिष्ठ ।

येथे काही कष्ट न लागती ॥ २ ॥

अजपा जपणे उलट प्राणाचा ।

तेथेही मनाचा निर्धारु असे ॥ ३ ॥

ज्ञानदेवा जिणे नामेविण व्यर्थ ।

रामकृष्णी पंथ क्रमीयेला ॥ ४ ॥



Some philosophers say that the universe is made of seven basic principles;

Others say the number is five, or three, or ten.

When Hari is realized, He reveals that, no matter what the number, as all those principles emanate from Him alone.


The name of God is not like that. It's the easiest pathway to approach to the Lord; It involves no strain or pain.


Ajapa-japa, the practice of mentally imposing the name in your inhaling and exaling breath. [Then all your breath (21,600 per day) is Nama Japa]. To pursue this practice, one needs much stamina and strength of will;


But the chanting of God's name with love is free of all such difficulties.

Jnanadev says: I'm convinced that a man lives in vain, if he does not resort to the Name. That's why I continue to extol, the chanting of the Name.

Just chant the Mahamantra. That will indeed lead you to the true philosophy


But all I know is that 'Năma sankirtanam' (singing Lord's names) is the correct path for all.


We believe in Nama


I want to know about your Bhakti Advaita Siddhanta


For this communion you need no philosophy, no rigorous discipline, no learning, no worldly wealth and position


Opinion of Krishna on essence of Gita


In Srimad Bhagavatham it is fully stressed that only Namakirtan is enough.


For you and for this beggar Rama Năm is enough


This beggar has no other message to give. Let them remember the name of Rama, Krishna and Shiva


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


Resetting things back to the original state itself is a great bliss. It is merely to realize our true nature which is the state of supreme bliss.



Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :


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