So is not the Divine Name superior to even liberation?

Nama Article 5th November 2014


Sri Sri Krishna Premi Swamigal


Lord Rama after His coronation offered gifts for all His subjects. He enquired Hanuman what he desired. Hanuman replied, "I want to live for many more yugas." The Lord asked, "Why don't you desire liberation?". Hanuman replied, "I desire to experience the joy of Chanting your Name. If I am liberated I cannot do that. So I asked for long life." The Lord too granted His desire.


So is not the Divine Name superior to even liberation?


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


Nama kirtan even after liberation


I don't want liberation; I want love of God!


And the person who enjoys Chanting the Divine Name and derives pleasure ('Aanandha') with the mere chanting/singing is likened to the King. Mahatmas are like the King.


Despite Shri Shankara being a staunch believer in the conception of the Formless Supreme Being.........


All I know is Ram Nam


Paramahamsas are immersed in the Chanting of Divine names of the Lord


Hanuman worked tirelessly for Rama. He also performed incessant Rama japa. We should also be like this.


At the same time performing activities without spiritual practices is meaningless. We should learn to be like Hanuman by balancing both types of activities.

Singing the glories of God with true love is superior even to the bliss of liberation.



Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :


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