Constant remembrance of Lord Kannan (Krishna) is what we should do. Indeed, if one keeps on remembering the Lord by Chanting his Names all virtues accrue and do we need anything else to get His Grace ?

Nama Article 20th September 2014


ஊத்துக்காடு வேங்கட கவி



கொடுத்து வைத்த புண்ணியவான்

குற்றமிலாத ஹரிகதையதனை

சற்றுக் கணமேனும் கேட்டவர் எவரோ

கொண்டு பதம் பாடி நின்றவர் எவரோ

குரு பதமலர் தொழுதவர் எவரோ - அவரே (கொடுத்து)



கொடுத்து வைத்தவன் என்று எதற்கெதற்கோ சொல்லிக்

கொண்டான் அடித்தவர்காள்! - இதுகேளும்!

நெடுத்த இத்தரை மேலே - ஹரிகதையைத் தவிர

நீரும் மாக்களும் ஒன்றுதான் பாரும்!



நின்று - அளவானால் - சாண் எட்டு தானே

நேராக எமன் வந்தால் - அதுவரை தானே

அன்று அவன் கயிறுக்கு - ஒரு சுற்றுத் தானே

அத்தனையும் நேருமுன்னம் - அறிந்தவர் தானே மிகக் (கொடுத்து)



கண்ணனகலாத சிந்தை செய்யவேணும்!

காலொன்று இற்றதென்று - மற்றவற்றில் காணும்!

திண்ணமும் எண்ணஎண்ண புண்ணியம் காணும்

திருவருளுக் கிதைவிட வேறென்ன வேணும்



சினத்திலும் மனத்திலும் தனத்திலும் உழன்று -

திரிந்து திரிந்து அலைந்தானது வீணே

தெளிந்து மணந்த குருநாதன்வந்து -

திருவருளானது பலனிது தானே

கனவு கண்டதொரு நேரமும் தானே

கட்வாங்கன் கண்டது - அதிசயம்தானே

மனமான முறணெண்ண - கால் ஒன்று தானே

மதிகொண்டு துதிகொண்டு பிழைத்தவர்தானே மிகக் (கொடுத்து)


Oottukkadu Venkata Kavi


Those are the blessed ones who hear the unblemished story of Lord Hari even for a few moments, who Chant His Divine Names and who worships the Holy feet of the Master (Guru).


Many claim to be blessed for various reasons. Just hear this truth, except those who hear the stories of Lord Hari there is no difference between humans and those species who do not have the sixth sense.


If you stand and measure yourself you are just eight measurements by your hand, that too only till the God of death comes, then He will just encircle of your body with his rope of death. Those who understand this truly are the real blessed ones.


Constant remembrance of Lord Kannan (Krishna) is what we should do. Indeed, if one keeps on remembering the Lord by Chanting his Names all virtues accrue and do we need anything else to get His Grace ?


It is just a waste of time to get angry and keep thinking about money and other trivial things. The fruit of Grace of Guru, who is full of clarity and is ever in union with the Lord, is this. In Srimad Bhagavatam we find that it took only one 'muhurtam' (nearly one hour) for Katvangar attained Liberation. There is nothing false in this and this is the Only truth. Those who really understand this and Chants the Divine Name of the Lord are the ones who survives and Those are the ones who are really blessed.


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


In the eyes of him who constantly Chants your names and adores you as en embodiment of supreme bliss (seeking no other object), Your Lotus feet, O Lord are the only true blessing


"To remain how God wills" – being in this state is Bhagavatha Dharmam.


Spiritual success is dependent on oneself and not on the environment.


To remain in the Holy Feet of the Guru as a 'nobody' (zero); to remain like a doll in his hand. This is the only effort that can be taken by us


When one is afflicted with sorrow, if he persists in prayers and not question the Lord as to why He is putting him into grief, when the difficult times pass, the Lord is pleased and rewards him with a special gift of His grace.


You should not only accept from the bottom of your heart the situation that the Lord keeps you in but also be grateful to Him for that because it is verily the Lord's blessing!


When there is true love, even adversities appear to be blessings


It is not ours to question why, but to submit to the Divine will, and pass through all experiences that fall to our lot, with a free and cheerful heart.


We can resign ourselves to the Will of God and keep away our egosense, only by a continuous remembrance of God


It is a mistake to think that by mere change of situation or activity we can attain to peace


If one does not chant the divine Name of the Lord, the Lord will not interfere with his life. If he does chant the Name of God continuously, the Lord makes his life favorable to him.


Likewise, God takes hold of his devotee and removes all the hurdles in his/her way.


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


Words of wisdom by a great Gnani and a true bhaktha


Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :


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