That is action, which doesn't lead to binding; that is knowledge, which leads to liberation.

Nama Article 15th July 2015


तत्कर्म यन्न बन्धाय सा विद्या या विमुक्तये

आयासायापरं कर्म विद्याऽन्या शिल्पनैपुणम्


That is action, which doesn't lead to binding; that is knowledge, which leads to liberation.  All other actions are mere chores of arduousness; all other sciences are plain craftsmanship.

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

Man feels that only the most difficult is the highest, the most difficult way is the best way. This is a very wrong notion

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

That love, can sprout only by his grace. His grace descends when we chant the Mahamantra.

Those who are ready to accept this simple Mahamantra, we shall give this Mahamantra to those with love.

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

Namakirtan is definitely the easiest way. But our illusion (maya) would not allow us to do even that. Hence we should not get caught in the illusion. One should always catch hold of the Divine Name with out indulging in any pomp and show.

Bhagawan Nama Bodendra Saraswati Swamigal puts forth his findings in the following words, "Since it is so easy and simple, none takes to it!

Would it not amount to grave injustice if one shows a difficult path to the world?

There are many ways. But the simplest and the easiest way is by chanting the "Hare Rama.." Mahamantra.

After ensuring all these if our mind is not pure there is no use of any of the above. For keeping our mind clean, Chanting the Names of Krishna is the only way.

They are for those who don't believe in simple prayers.

Smallest dharma is verily Chanting the Divine Name (Namakirtan) and ignorance ['ajnaana'] the worst fear

The genuine seeker alone will be able to spot it

Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :

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