Nama Article 9th September 2014
Even today, we have Bodendra Saraswati Swamigal's Jiva Samadhi in Govindapuram, a place between Aduthurai and Tiruvidaimarudur, next to Kumbakonam. It is said that Bodendra Swamigal lives there chanting the Rama Nama all 24 hours and round the year.
Devotees who go there and chant the Taraka Mantra in His Samadhi can hear Rama Nama emanating from the Samadhi when they spend their night there. A few can even see the form of the Mahan in Danda and Kamandala circumambulating the Samadhi chanting the Rama Nama.
Today, anyone going to Sri Bodendra Saraswati Swamigal's Samadhi Govindapuram with problems and sufferings in their heart and pray with Bhakti are ridden of their ills. That is the greatness of the Mahan who lived more than three hundred years back, and lives in his Samadhi even today.

Divine Names' are not mere names - Bhagavan Nama Bodhendral
Great saints like Bhagavan Nama Bodhendral, Kanchi Mahaswamigal, Sri Sri Anna have all always worried that this simple method of worshipping through prayers by Chanting the Divine Names of Lord should reach all people. It should be effectively propagated that the evils effects of Kali can be easily negated by Chanting of Mahamantra.
