A dead person will not be retained for long in the house and even the name changes to a corpse and the activities that take place post death is very different. Then people would move on in life and the recollection of the deceased will no longer occupy their minds. But the Lord treats everyone as His child and those who have forgotten the Lord also are blessed by the Lord. This is because of our past relationship with the Lord that we are able to enjoy his mercy. The Lord is like the engine of the train and we like compartments should always attach ourself to the Lord and travel. This does not mean that we give up our duties and the Lord has never advised his anywhere. You are free to get educated, earn money, marry and reproduce but ever retain the thought that all these are happening due to the mercy of the Lord only. In olden days the elders would teach the youngster to chant Krishna Krishna when they get up and prior to eating food that due to Govinda alone that we are able to enjoy the meal. When this was practised the health and the mental state of the people were very good. But in today's world we get up and sit in front of the TV to watch our favourite serials. Today I have a request to place in front of you and all those who have gathered to read are the children of RadheKrishna satsangam and belong to the RadheKrishna satsangam family.

India is the holy land with so many bhaktas (devotees). When we go through the Indian history, there must be a bhakta in every period. That is the greatness of this sacred land. Bhaktas are the role model for all the bonded souls. They enjoy their life in a perfect way. Bhaktas surrender themselves to the Lotus feet of Lord. By hearing or reading bhaktas' divine story, the bonded soul is enlightened to come out of the worldwide bondages.
RadheKrishna! Sincere chanting and listening to the great stories of devotees will surely give a peace of mind to everybody, even in this 21st century. So many people think that listening to the devotee's stories is a waste of time and there is no benefit at all. If somebody wants to realize the power of bagawan, first of all they must listen bhaktha charithram [stories of devotees]. There are so many advantages in listening to baktha charithram.
Bharath is a very special land and contained within it are sacred places and rivers. Devotees born in this sacred Bharath ensure that they propagate bhakti in all corners of the country. This is the precise reason why the fragrance of bhakti can be felt all around our country.
Our beloved Guruji has a special reverence for Sri Krishna Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and in the coming issues, we will enjoy his bhakthi and the path of devoution that he had set an example for us to follow.
The devas dont expect them to be honoured and instead they are happy to see the devotees praising Krishna and tears of joy would flow out of their eyes. Sarswathi in the pandit's dream says that he is very fortunate and to that the pandit asks as to how when he had lost to a lad of just 16 years. Sarswathi replies that he had lost to none other than an avatar of Krishna and hence this can't be considered a defeat but instead a great fortune. She also says that the pandit's ego is destroyed as of today as otherwise he would have taken countless births as a pandit and suffered as a result.
She also proceeds to say that only true devoution would conquer the Lord and never knowledge can be used to conquer Him. The pandit felt a great sigh of relief on hearing this and when our egos are destoryed by sathgurus we will feel the pain but the very moment we realise that it is good for our soul we would experience great relief. The pandit woke up in the morning and declared that all his sins have vanished as of this moment. He used only usually get up to see whom he can defeat but today was different and he was eager to meet Nimayee.
The pandit calls his subordinates and declars that they can take how much ever they want from his wealth. Currency of a particular nation can only work within that nation where as chanting can work everywhere and anywhere. He proceeds to the river Ganges and takes a dip in it with a vow that all his past karmas and the effects of those should disappear as of now. He was pleased with the river Ganga as it is in this very place that Nimayee defeat him and feels forutnate for the river as she is able to play with Nimayee's footprints each day.

RadheKrishna.Hinduism is an ancient religion. All the things that have been spoken in Hindu religion can be applied in practical life. Although in 21st century till everyone can apply this in his or her daily life. The aim of Hindu religion is to provide total happiness to everyone at all times (or any point of time). The essence of Hinduism is told in "Bhagawad Gita". In order to realize what is said in Bhagawad Gita it is a compulsory (must) to have an unconditional faith on Bhagawad Gita. So many people have benefited in their lives because of the (by reading) shlokas of Bhagawad Gita. In Bhagawad Gita, Bhagawan Shri Krishna has told the way to lead a happy life in such an easy way that even a normal layman can easily understand. The slokas are so simple that anyone can understand and use it practically. In the coming months we will enjoy the 12th Chapter of Gita and the devoution towards the Lord as explained by our beloved Guruji.
If we want to enjoy every second of life then we should meditate on Gita. In this treatise the Lord has explained clearly the mind and how it affects others and how to prevent it from affect ourselves. The Lord was bent on delivering the essence of life prior to His departure from this planet. The Lord had concluded that those who meditate on His form alone are dear to Him and that is the easiest way to achieve Him as well. The Lord also guarantees that those who are always meditating on Him and doing all their duties on His behalf are able to cross the ocean of birth and quite easily with the help of the Lord. Since the devotees have given their minds to the Lord, they never take another birth in this planet.
Arjuna sheds tears of joy on hearing that the Lord is willing to uplife those who just engage in His thought alone. Even out of falsehood if we say that we are thinking of the Lord, He gets overjoyed about it. That is why even when Ajamila did shout his sons name Narayana, the Lord took it as a call for Him and helped him attain liberation. Arjuna is overjoyed that despite all the sins committed by the souls, the Lord is ever ready to help them attain liberation. Arjuna then proceeds to wonder how to constantly think of the Lord and the Lord gets ready to answer before even Arjuna proceeds to ask this question. We should also be in that state and enquire and find solutions from the Lord for all our problems

Perumal Thirumozhi was as a result of Kulasekara azhwar longing to see and enjoy Lord Ranganatha. The Thirumozhi also results from the bhakthi of the azhwar towards Rama and Krishna and he begins with his longing for Lord Ranganatha. Everyone of us have so much of longing for the worldly affairs but the longing and the love for the Lord alone will help us achieve a good state.
Kulasekara azhwar enjoys Lord Ranganatha as Adisheshan in the first two pasurams or songs. Then he enjoys the Lord as enjoyed by Brahma. But the way Gopis enjoyed the Lord is considered to be supreme. This is because the not so intelligent Gopis were fully aware of the strengths of the Lord and believed that Krishna would save them. Of all the avataras, Krishna avatar is considered to be the best and one that can easily be enjoyed. This was followed by Kulasekara azhwar enjoying how Narada and Tumburu enjoy the Lord. He continues further and sees how the devotees are enjoying the Lord and what items are safeguarding the Lord. Then the azhwar decides to mingle with the devotees and experience how it would be to be part of that group and enjoy the Lord.
Kulasekara azhwars longs to be someone in Srirangam and prays to Lord Ranganatha on a daily basis to make this happen. If we express our desire to enjoy the Lord then He will certainly pose a question as to what qualities we posses to enjoy Him. Even at times the Lord may be angered by our request as well. The trick is to make the Lord happy by speaking about his devotees which will pacify the Lord and during that time we can express our desire to enjoy the Lord. The Lord is ever pleased with his devotees and that applies to whether it is Adishesha or His weapons or Garuda or the devotees of India. Even children determine the mood of their parents to get things done. Even Swami Ramanuja prior to his depatures dictates what all must be done. He lists down that one must read SriBashyam or do temple service or read Divyaprabhandham or at the very least as a last resort should take refuge under a true devotee. This is because devotees lose themselves and their ego and always thinking of the Lord.
Once Thirukachi nambi asks Lord Varadharaja whether he is eligible for liberation and the Lord replies that He is unable to grant that wish. Nambi questions the Lord that daily he is conversing with Him and what else is required as an eligibility for liberation. The Lord says that for his devoution that He speaks to him and if liberation is required some devotee has to accept the Nambi as his clan. Then Nambi proceeds and joins Thirukozhtiyur Nambi as a shepard taking care of his cows. Once Thirukachi nambi did not return even after late evening and Thirukozhtiyur nambi proceeds in search of the shephard and the scene he saw surprised Thirukozhiyur nambi. Thirukachi nambi had covered the cows with his clothes and was lying on top of the clothes.

Bhagawan takes avatar in each and every yuga mainly to safeguard the bhaktas and then to destroy the rakshasaas who trouble his bhaktas. So Bhagawan comes to this bhoomi from paRamapadham just for the sake of his bhaktas. Hence we come to know that bhaktas are very important to the Lord. Whenever Bhagawan comes to rescue his bhaktas, the other fellow people also reap the benefits.........Our guruji amma gives high respect to all the bhaktas. Hence our Vedhanaadham's every issue will be dedicated to one bhakta. This issue we are dedicating to the one of the great eternal devotees of the Lord namely - 'Sage Bhrigu'
The great sage wasthe manasaputra (born out of mind) of Brahma and was married to Khyati the daughter of Daksha.
The greatrishi was referred to in Srimad Bhagawath Gita as "Of the sages, I am Brigu"
The great author is credied with writing Brigu Samitha a treatise on astrology
The greatfather did get her daughter Shri married to Lord Vishnu.
The great sagewho tested Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva and proclaimed that Vishnu was the greatest of them all
The ultimate liberator bestowed by Lord Sri Krishna!
