மஹாரண்யம் ஸ்ரீ ஸ்ரீ முரளீதர ஸ்வாமிஜி :


பகவானுடைய ராம, கிருஷ்ண அவதாரங்கள் ஏற்பட்ட காலமும் உண்டு. அவதாரங்கள் மறைந்த காலமும் உண்டு. அனால் ராம நாமமும் கிருஷ்ண நாமமும் தோன்றிய காலமும் கிடையாது, என்றும் மறையவும் மறையாது


Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji


There is a period in which the Incarnation of Lord Rama and Krishna took place. There is also a period during these Incarnations have ended. But there is no period of beginning for the Divine Names of "Rama" and "Krishna" and they will never ever disappear.


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


Feeling that these Forms alone will not suffice for redemption of the world He also became the Divine Names such as 'Hari!' 'Siva!' and is ever alive in these Names.


If you Chant God's Name, meditation of His form is automatically achieved. And if you meditate on His form, Chanting His Names automatically happens.


So the Lord's form is attained only by the deserving but his Name is attained even by the undeserving.


It is verily the Name of the Supreme One - the one who creates, sustains and rests it in Himself


Name and the Named are but one


God, Guru, Srimad Bhagavatam and God's Divine Name --- all are one and the same.


The Divine Name of the Lord ('Bhagavan Năma') has the power to redeem one and all.


God's Name is superior than God's form


Thus we are able to comprehend to a certain extent that there is no difference between the Name of the Lord and the Lord. Don't we?


Each Name has a form. Each Form has a name


Manusmriti stressing that the Word is the origin of all Forms


Hence mantras are not only mere combination of words or descriptions of God but they are God themselves.


All these forms of worship are rendered futile unless accompanied by the 'sound' aspect in the form of Mantras. If we were to worship the Supreme Brahman in the form of sound chanting the Divine Names of Lord alone is enough.


So that the utterance of a group of letters, which is the mantra, produces, by the process of permutation and combination of these letters, a new form of energy which gets infused into our system


The omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient Lord understands his worship and out of sheer mercy makes the 'jeeva' realize Him through the idol.


Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :


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