Realise, my boys, the glory of uttering the Name of the Lord

Nama Article 17th May 2014


Srimad Bhagavatham 6:3:23 & 24


नामोच्चारण-माहात्म्यं हरेः पश्यत पुत्रकाः

अजामिलोऽपि येनैव मृत्यु-पाशाद् अमुच्यत

एतावतालम् अघ-निर्हरणाय पुंसां

सङ्कीर्तनं भगवतो गुण-कर्म-नाम्नाम्

विक्रुश्य पुत्रम् अघवान् यद् अजामिलोऽपि

नारायणेति म्रियमाण इयाय मुक्तिम्


Realise, my boys, the glory of uttering the Name of the Lord, by which alone (pronounced unintentionally once only) even (a vile sinner like) Ajamila was liberated from the noose of Death.


To celebrate duly the virtues and exploits of the Lord and to Chant His Name is just not meant for wiping out the sins of men (but would grant liberation). For even the sinful Ajamila attained liberation by simply calling his son as Narayanan at the pitch of his voice (and not with proper intonation) while on the verge of death.

What is the secret of success?


It is up to you to choose the most apt means of transport given your current load of luggage and various other factors


The spirit of Devotion cultivated by the recitation of His Name is the best form of virtue and this alone has been declared to be the paramount duty that should be practiced in this world.


Intelligent men resort to devotional service by chanting the Divine names of the Lord. Such persons are not within my jurisdiction for punishment.


That love, can sprout only by his grace. His grace descends when we chant the Mahamantra.


The intention of continued chanting of the Divine names is to take one to the state of total selfless, unconditional LOVE


Everything in our life is predetermined. All we have to do is to turn and fix our mind on Him!


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


God's grace always flows in abundance. It is upto you to be ready to receive it.


A Sadhaka should not concern himself with his body at all as all are pre-programmed and pre-determined by the will of the Lord


Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :


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