Chant mahamantra and realize the ultimate. What is that ultimate is the decision of Krishna. This is verily our philosophy.


There has been a lot of questions if our philosophy is Advaitham or Vishistaadvaitham or Dvaitham or Achintya Bhedaabheda, etc. When we brought this to our beloved Sri Swamiji's notice, this is the divine response from Sri Swamiji:

'Even amongst the various mathas (sects) which accept the Vedas, there are some sub-sects within the Vedic Religion of Sanatana Dharma which do not accept a Supreme God like Sankhya system of philosophy. We generally know only three main philosophies in Vedanta – Advaitham, Vishistaadvaitham and Dvaitham, but there are many more systems of philosophies like Suddhaadvaitham by Sri Vallabhacharya, Eka-Deiva-Vaadam by an Assamese Acharya (Sri Sankaradeva), Sivaadvaitham by Sri Appayya Dikshitar and many more! So there are many systems of philosophies like this in this world!

Even within Advaitha systems, there many subsects like Ajaata Vaadam, Shrusti Dhrusti Vaadam, Dhrusti Shrusti Vaadam and so on. Similarly in Sri Vaishnava Samparadaya philosophy there are two main sub sects – Vadakalai and Thenkalai...'

So Sri Swamiji said whatever philosophy these Mahaans have established, we never criticize, nor do we object to any Mahatma. We find all philosophies acceptable.

What is our philosophy then?

Chant mahamantra and realize the ultimate

What is that ultimate is the decision of Krishna.

This is verily our philosophy.

Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :

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