Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji
One may ask me, "Do those who perform Nãma Sankirtan conduct their lives properly? Do these people possess virtues? Do they perform Nãma Sankirtan as per the laid down norms ('vidhi')?"
While speaking on Nãma Sankirtan Shastras have said, "Do Nãma Sankirtan even if indifferently! Irreverently!" It does not matter if Nãma Sankirtan is performed even in a manner of jest or even if there is 'dosha' (faults) in it! Nãma Sankirtan has no rules and regulations ('vidhi') at all! So, the question, "Don't they (those who do Nãma Sankirtan) have 'dosha' (fault) in them?" does not arise at all. While writing the Nãma Siddhanta, it has been said, "Somehow, in someway, even if only in jest, let the Lord's Name be uttered by you!"
