Nama Article 25th November 2014

अनन्याश्चिन्तयन्तो मां ये जना: पर्युपासते।

तेषां नित्याभियुक्तानां योगक्षेमं वहाम्यहम्॥


परित्राणाय साधूनां विनाशाय च दुष्कृताम्।

धर्मसंस्थापनार्थाय संभवामि युगे युगे ॥


आर्ता विषण्णा: शिथिलाश्च भीता:

घोरेषु च व्याधिषु वर्तमाना:।

संकीर्त्य नारायणशब्दमात्रं

विमुक्तदु:खा: सुखिनो भवन्तु॥


Sri Bhagavan says:

I would take care,

Of worries and cares of Him,

Who thinks and serves me,

Without any other Thoughts,


To take care of Dharma,

To protect those who are good,

And to destroy all who are bad.

I will be born from time to time.


If he who is worried,

If he who is sad,

If he who is broken,

If he who is afraid,

If he who is severely ill,

If he who has heard tidings bad,

Sings Narayana and Narayana,

All his cares would be taken care of.


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


For those men who worship Me alone, thinking of no other, for those ever-united, I secure what is not already possessed and preserve what they already possess.


Food is the first need of Man. While Krishna has taken care of all worldly necessities why should one seek another deity's help? Sri Krishna whom you worship will bless you with all round welfare.


Those who Chant the Divine Names of Hari, Udupi Krishna blesses them with adequate food.


Sri Hari, the bestower of salvation, gives beauty, health, wordly possessions and appropriate enjoyments to those who constantly medidiate on Him.


We should either do bhakti deeply and attain God or be in the world enjoying worldly things. What is the use of remaining in-between ('rendungkettan') the two? -- Neither here nor there?


If you want God alone, why do you accept the existence of anything else ?


If someone forgets the Beloved Lord, even for an instant, what sort of devotion is that?


As your heart beats as you sleep, dream or being awake let your tongue always Chant the Divine Names of Hari.


If you become that anxious on forgetting to chant the Divine Name even for a second, then you are blessed.


One should constantly repeat the names of God irrespective of any activity that he might be involved in


We should Chant and remember the Divine Name every breath we intake and we need not try to do anything else.


kalakshebo na kartavyah, kshenamaayuh kshane kshane, yamasya karuna naasti, kartavyam hari kirtanam.


Every moment of your life should be taken as His gift.  Be rest assured that every incident that happens is by His grace and happens for your well-being.


Guru Nanak felt that it would be improper to postpone Nama Smarana or remembering the Name of the Lord, even by a single breath


The thought that seize out one's mind for life long period would surely, strongly surface during the last breath


That unshakable faith in Rama Nama remained with him till his last breath.


The human body is a rare boon to embodied souls and that too is very transient (momentary, short-lived, temporary)


Your last breath should ensure that this is your last birth


The thought that seize out one's mind for life long period would surely, strongly surface during the last breath. Likewise we ourselves can have a test to determine whether it's possible to have an active remembrance of the lord when our soul departs the body.


This exercise should go on continually until doing japa has become as natural as breathing.


Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every Word that proceeds out of the mouth of God


Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :


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