1. The Divine Message - Message From Poojyashree Shree Amma - The Ultimate Liberator Bestowed By Lord Shri Krishna!

RadheKrishna

 

We often boast about the things that we dedicate to the Lord like providing clothes etc. I am not against anyone observing anything or doing poojas.But the same act of doing pooja should not lead to ego. More often it lends to the fact that I bought so much of flowers, offering condensed sweet milk, multitude of fruits and leads to inviting others to view and appecriate our offerings. The Lord has give everything in abundance and happens by His grace alone. So what do we have to offer the Lord in return for providing us wealth, devoution and liberation?

What are we capable of. Let us try to liberate a goat or teach a cow maths and english alphabets and see if you are able impart these to the animals. The Lord out of grace has given humanbeings this ability to do devoution and without it nothing can happen. Let us keep all these egoistic tendencies away and in devoution bow to the Lord and surrender that I am your slave. We should also be thankful to the Lord for all the things that happen. If things dont happen even after doing devoution, the primary reason being our ego has prevented us from reaching out to the Lord. True devoution never fades and the likes of Aandal, Radhe , Meera stand the test of time. Their songs are still being sung today and songs written for money never stand the test of time. True devoution must only be known to us and the Lord alone and the Lord can be tied by true devoution alone

2. Mahatmas - New Bhaktacharitras Each Month

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.

 

RadheKrishna


Nimayee used to grab the beetle leaves and run and Sridharan would run behind and try to catch him. Nimayee like an elephant that has gone out of his mind would play with all the devotees of the Lord. Sometimes he would go to houses and demand milk dictating that people are complaining of water being mixed with milk. They would also oblige and bring the milk due to the attractive nature of Nimayee. He would then proceed to ask for curd and would also like it to be mixed with sugar or jaggery. Such is the fortunate nature of those who would heed to Nimayee's request as devotees would never ask anyone other than the Lord for their needs.

Gopis would plead Krishna to visit their homes and accept their offerings but he would not heed that easily. Nimayee would only visit the home of the people who would really long for the Lord to accept their offerings. If the longing comes from the soul then the Lord has the duty to fulfill it. Despite all the pranks with the people and with Laxmi Devi herself as well, he would with atmost sincerity teach his disciples as well. Nimayee pandit would even make a simpleton an expert in logic and arguments.




Tirumangai Azhwar

 

The whole of Navdeep does nothing these days but to talk about Nimayee. At this juncture Nimayee life takes a turn that would put an end to all his pranks. There was a person called Ishwarapuri who was the disciple of Madhavendrapuri. Madhavendrapuri was sincerely praying that Krishna again takes an avatar in this planet and would go to all holy places and place this request. Today we are enjoying devoution due to the penance of such holy people. It was the also the period when muslims were bent on destroying Hinduism. When Madhavendrapuri was ready to depart from this world, Ishwarapuri begins to weep and the guru replies that he should instead cry for the birth of Krishna. At the time of his death Madhavendrapuri blesses his disciple with true devoution and says that he would be fortunate to see the birth of the Lord.

3. Krishnam Vande Jagadhgurum - Extracts From The Holy Bhagawath Geetha


Radhe
Krishna.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.

Gurujiamma & Guruji - Krishnam Vande Jagathgurum

RadheKrishna

The Lord thus concludes that those who meditate on his form are superior to those who worship his formless nature. This induces a doubt in Arjuna's mind and he wonders whether the yogis who worship his formless nature never attain liberation. In one sense it is easier to worship the formless nature of the Lord. Before Arjuna begins to think that he could ban the formless worship, the Lord begins to answer and this is the speciality of the Lord. The Lord follows the conclusion and says that those who worship His formless nature also attains Him.

The form of the Lord seem to have a definite end as Krishna and Rama departed after spending sometime in this earth. But the formless nature of the Lord does not have a beginning and an end and neither can be described by anyone as well. It is easy to describe a mango in various languages because it has a definite form. Hence the formless nature of the Lord cant be contained by words as well. The formless nature of the Lord is also all prevailing and exists everywhere and does not gets destroyed. The Lord provides such a detailed explanation of His formless nature as it is very difficult to grasp and understand.

To worship the formless nature of the Lord, the first thing that a yogi should do is to control the senses. The formless nature can't be seen by the eyes, can't be heard through the ears, can't be smelt through the nose, can't be tasted through the tongue and can't be felt by the hands. The formless nature can't be explained or felt by the sensory organs. The formless worship requires one to tie all the senses to be able to enjoy this form of worship. They should also not distinguish the various creatures but instead see the formless nature in all living beings. It is a very difficult form of worship.

Kulashekara Azhwaar


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.

We should always associate ourselves with such devotional groups. This is because we sleep for 12 hours and the rest goes in activities like eating, bathing etc. The remaining amount of time we should dedicate ourselves with the devotees. After joining such a group we should sing the glory of the Lord as poems. Even if we are not eligible to sing His glories we can chant His names. This is because each name of the Lord like Govinda, Madhava has a special power and we can realise the power of the Lord through His names. Also those divine names will destroy all our past sins and will give us the much needed courage in life. But quite often we only sing the glory of humans who are not worthy of anything.

We should not have any other work other than singing the glories of the Lord through a million names. There is no use for the Lord as a result of singing His glory by us. But just to give us happiness the Lord accepts our hymns. The advantage of associating ourselves with devotees is that we would be angry first that we are not able to chant like them. then we will get that desire , followed by a longing which will result in devoution. Once we attain the necessary devoution we will then begin enjoy the tast of chanting. Gopika Geetham is enchanting because it was sung by all the Gopis in unison and this resulted in the Lord coming down to visit them. Also 16,108 ladies who were imprisoned by Narasura joined in devoution towards Krishna and hence they were freed up and were given the status of Krishna's wives.


Even if we think about devoutees we can become devoutees ourselves. Roopa Goswami and Sanathana Goswami used to always meditate on Krishna Chaitanya although they had never met him. Ultimately this meditation resulted in them mingling with Krishna Chaitanya's devoutional group.

RadheKrishna  The pasuram continues next month...

6. Samarpanam

parithraanaaya sadhoonaam vinasaya cha dhushkrutham

dharma sansthapanarthaya sambhavami yuge yuge

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 - 'Viswamitra'

 

The great king who was born as  Kaushikha and later attained liberation due to countless penances to become sage Viswamitra
The great sage who was given the title Brahma Rishi by his guru and sage Vasista

The great teacher who was fortunate to teach Rama and Laxmana the art of warfare and was responsible for uniting Ram and Sita

The great soul is also dedicated with expounding the Gayatri Mantra and most of mandala three of Rig Vedha

The great devotee of the Lord who is responsible for the lineage of Kaushika and Viswamitra Gotras
