Become God's and Chant His Name
In Adhyatma Ramayana Bhagwan Shankar Himself says to Ramji - "Bhagwaan! I live in Kashi with Bhavani. "Mumoorshmaanasya dishaami mantram tava ramanaam" I am giving the mantra of the Divine Name of Ram as charity to those who are dying, therefore take it brother, by which your salvation will be attained. One gentleman said, I have seen many men that are dying in Kashi, their ears are perked upwards, as if Lord Shankar is giving them a mantra. We too can chant that Divine Name. Such a joyous moment this is! What a great Name it is! We, who are born in kaliyug, can now chant that Divine Name, of the Lord who is the "Ishth" (Beloved) of Bhagwaan Shankar,. What immense grace has befallen us. It is His most transcendental blessedness that is taking place. It is a small thing. Simply begin chanting the Name, "Ram, Ram, Ram". Saints have said, "Mukti munde mein thaare". Liberation lies in your mouth. Chant Ram Ram and become blessed. So economical is the Lord's Name. Begin "japa" (repetition of Lord's Name), it is a simple straight-forward point. The Lord's name is open. You often become bold and open the treasures that are stored in the vault, but the treasure that is wide openly available that you are not using.
Ram dadi choude padi, sab koyi khelo aaye |
Daava nahin sant das jeete so le jaaye ||
Whoever wants can take it, what a great point this is ! What an excellent thing ! Open to all. There is no denying anyone, such is the Divine Name of God. Now, by believing it to be Your Lord's (Beloved One's) Divine Name, it can be taken immediately, with enthusiasm, and with love.
Saints have said - Those who take and don't take the Name of the Lord in the worlds beyond, both cry. Why? Those who chant the Name cry that earlier we did not know the glories of the Divine Name were so great. If we knew then we would chant the name day and night. Those who don't chant the Name, cry because they feel that their time was uselessly wasted away. Brothers, now we have come to know. To have regrets, after dying what is the point? The time is right now. As long as this breath is moving, the eyes are moving, as long as this body is alive the is an opportunity; Chant the Divine Name of the Lord. If people laugh do not be concerned.
Hasti ki chaal chalo man mera
Jagat kukari ko bhusabaa de |
Tu to Ram simar jag hansavaa de ||
If people laugh, then well and good - Laugh Brother, by laughing you are pleased. In pleasure one feels like laughing. It is a joyful feeling. We have to simply become immersed in chanting the Lord's Name. That is it ! Whether someone laughs, or contempt, or makes fun, so be it. There is loss in honor and pride. There is no loss in tolerating, in insults, in criticism etc. In these, the sins are destroyed. While you chant the Name of the Lord, and others laugh and make fun of you, then this is double the benefit.
Tere bhaave jo karo, bhalo buro sansaar |
Narayana tu baith ke apanou bhuvan buhaar ||
Whether others do or don't do - there is no need to draw your attention towards that. Just as when you are hungry, then you do not check with others whether they all have eaten or not; because you want to eat right now. Similarly we must feel the hunger pangs within for the Divine Name of God, whether others take the name or not. What others do and don't do is immaterial. But we ourselves must certainly grab this opportunity.
Narayana ! Narayana !! Narayana !!!
