Devotee: Dear Sri Swamiji, can you please summarize our sampradaya in a sentence?
HH Maharanyam Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji: Our Guru is Paranur Mahatma Sri Sri KrishnaPremi Maharaj. Our Guru Maharaj is himself a sampradaya sthapakacharya (an Acharya who has established a sampradaya). The sampradayam is PremikaSampradayam. If you want to summarize our sampradayam in one sentence, it is
"To Love, To Help."
To love Bhagavan Sri Krishna and to help people by way of giving Mahamantra to each and everyone for their liberation.Bhagavan holds 'jnana daanam' (gift of divine wisdom)as the supreme. If we do anna daanam (charity of food) it is for a day; clothes, a few days; education is for a few years… all are benign and good; and the best daanam is Mahamantra as it empowers the person to take care of his worldly needs here andhis spiritual needs thereafter. First and foremost, all need to do Mahamantra kirtan daily, regularly. It is an absolute must. If some are knowledgeable in and have taste for worship (pooja) we can have the Divine Couple (yugalam) for daily pooja; if possible we can do parayanam of Srimad Bhagavatam – at least two to three chapters daily; if possible we can do Sri Brindavana yatra and stay. Absolute minimum and most essential is Mahamantra kirtan.
