गृहम् अन्ध-कूपं वनं गतो यद्धरिम् आश्रयेत

Nama Article 14th May 2014


Srimad Bhagavatham 7:5:5


श्री-प्रह्लाद उवाच

तत् साधु मन्येऽसुर-वर्य देहिनां सदा समुद्विग्न-धियाम् असद्-ग्रहात्

हित्वात्म-पातं गृहम् अन्ध-कूपं वनं गतो यद्धरिम् आश्रयेत


Sri Prahlada says, "For all embodied souls whose mind is ever disturbed with the false ideas of 'I' and 'Mine', I hold this to be good, O Chief of demons, that having abandoned one's home, which degrades one's soul, and is just like a well whose mouth is hidden, one should go to the woods and take refuge in Sri Hari."


Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji


On reading this Ãlangudi Periyava left home. He wandered about as 'avadhoota' (naked). He reached the outskirts of Mudikondan village and sat below a tree. He was uttering the Bhãgavata sloka without stopping even for a moment. On the request of villagers he received 'kãshãyam' (the ochre robe), 'dhandam' (the staff of an ascetic) and 'kamandalu' (the vessel used for carrying water) and came into the village to narrate the Bhãgavatam. Why did he take sanyãs? To discourse on the Bhãgavatam!

Renouncing the home take refuge in the Holy feet of the fearless Lord Narasaimha by Chanting His Divine Names


"Hare" refers to Lord Narasimha.


An offense committed against the sadhus who have become one with Lord Krishna and who look at all with an even eye, certainly recoils soon on the offender


Little Prahlad by the Grace of His Guru Sage Narada, had an inexplicable love in Chanting the name of Lord Narayana. Prahlad's unstinted faith was the reason for The Lord to appear in a pillar.


I am not selfish. I will not feel elated, 'Oh! Lord is calling me,' and follow you. Crores of people are slogging in 'samsara'. What is the way out ('gati') for all of them?


May their mind resort only to that which is good by Chanting the Divine names; and may our thought as well as the thought of others be fixed on You with out any motive


Every grain that is eaten has the name (of the one who would consume it) on it! Since Lord sends each one down to the earth only after sending down whatever is needed by each, all these will come by even without your effort. Do chant the Divine Name and Lord will take care


God is very compassionate because everything in our life is predetermined. No effort need be taken by us in that direction. All we have to do is to turn and fix our mind on Him!


Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :


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