Sundara Manmatha Koti Prakaasha,Hare Sri Krishna
When i am about to die, the only forms that should appear b4 me should be that of the Lord (Krishna) with the beautiful flute kept on his lips , with the peacock plumes slantingly placed on his head and with the body as blue as bluestone

Naama Sankeerthanam

Hello friends,

Continuing my previous post on "Constance Remembrance" of the Lord, I am gonna further my thots over the means to THAT divine and most wanted state , where everything else in this world would seem superfluous.

For all these times I have been talking about just one thing . TRUE BHAKTHI ( The only means to get liberated )

Srimad Bhagawatham talks about nine forms of Bhakthi as mentioned below:

sravaNam keerthanam VishNO : smaraNam paadha sevanam
archanam vandanam daasyam sakhyam aathma nivedanam

These are hearing, touching the feet, singing , remembering, worshipping, serving, friendship and offering the self.

According to Kali-SantharaNa Upanishad, singing or naama sankeerthanam is said to be the easiest ways to reach the Lord especially in this Kali yuga :

Hare Raama HarE Raama , Raama Raama HarE HarE
Hare Krishna HarE Krishna , Krishna Krishna HarE HarE
ithi shiodasakam naamAm kali-kalmasha nAsana
naata : paratarEpyeya : Sarva VedEshu drisyathE

TRANSLATION:

The sixteen holy names of the Lord in unison are particularly potent to counteract
the contaminations (dhoshams) of Kali Yuga . All the vEdas consistently declare that
the chanting of the sacred names of the Lord is the only path to cross the ocean of
nescience . There is no other alternative to reach parama padham

Nama sankeerthanam is one of the easiest ways to get rid of egoism. How else can we combat the ever accruing ego ? Our thoughts always have the tendency to revolve around us..or things that are related to us . These thoughts can never fetch us eternal happiness coz these thots are centered in the sense plane and we experience both pain and pleasure thru the senses. ..So, the less we think about ourselves , the less egoism we'll have and we'll show more respect to fellow beings. We'll become kind. U know how effortlessly we can get onto a fight when we get offended . Dont u??:) . The easiest way to get ourselves not 2 think about ourselves is by invoking thougts about the creator of all of us thru chanting and singing about his divine qualities.

Thus, Nama Sankeethanam is a short route 2 become the highest of three types of devotees of the Lord ,BhagavatOtthamA ,who sees the glory of the BahgavAn reflected in all beings , high and low , and also perceives all beings as dwelling in Him

I encourage the interested reader to come up with questions on any of the thoughts presented above if he/she thinks that doing so will be of help .

Krishnaarpanam...

B4 Quitting, sing along with me ..:)

Hare Raama HarE Raama , Raama Raama HarE HarE
Hare Krishna HarE Krishna , Krishna Krishna HarE HarE
