Bring the Divine Closer to Heart

Swarna

I would like to share a miracle (for us) after chanting Namashivayam.

Beginning January, I decided to chant Namashivayam (108 times) every Monday and Pradosham days. My husband chants it every day.

Yesterday, a friend from India sent us a Shivalingam that was materialized by Baba at a home in Mumbai. I was totally stunned and thrilled at the miracle.

Our Rudram chanting to Shiva is restricted to Namaste Ashtu Bhagavan and Triyambakam Slokas. Every year, we do Ghana Rudra Abhishekam for Shivalingam during my husband’s birthday and we both fast for Shivaratri. My husband’s Ista Devata is Shiva.

The magnitude of divine love showered on us moved us so much.

Thank you for the wonderful mantra and bringing Divine closer to our lives and hearts.

One Universal Mantra

Ramya

Every God has their field day

For Sivarathri we pray to Siva, for Pradosham another deity and so on. On specific days we chant mantras for a specific god. Thus during different days, we chant different mantras. Do we have to say so many mantras or do we have one mantra which takes care of all the gods.

Naran S. Balakumar

We chant mantras based on the trust and love and association we have for a particular god. Different people prefer different gods. This is based on mind of the person. All gods are one and the same. Why so many gods or energies? Each of those gods has a specific purpose behind them.

Universal Mantra

Of course there is one mantra that gives the benefit of chanting mantras for all gods. It is the mantra, “Hare Rama Hare Krishna”. If we take bija mantras for all mantras, then they are present inside this mantra. Combination of all characters of mantras pertaining to all Gods is found in this mantra.

Ego creeps in

Whatever mantra you say then immediately you get attached yourself to deity. You feel proud that you have done so much. However, while doing a Japam, it should remove my ego too. There is no flaw in the mantras. But mantra should have the capability to shed our ego. Hare Rama Hare Krishna can do that for us. Nothing else is needed. That doesn’t mean we need not go away from mantras for other Gods.

Get a total satisfaction

People have attained Siddhis or liberation with all the mantras. Why then Hare Rama Hare Krishna mantra has a special place? If you chant Hare Rama Hare Krishna mantra, then you get the satisfaction that you get by chanting all the mantras. You feel complete because you have not missed out any.

Revathy

Earlier, I use one leg to get climb the stairs to attend the classes of Naran. After chanting Hare Ram Hare Krishna mantra, I could use both the legs. My knees are so much better.
