Vedhanaadham - The Sound For The Soul - August 2011

Poojyashree Shree Amma's

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

The Lord because of His mercy forgets  that He is the omscient and omnipotent ruler of all these worlds. He even forgets His six special qualities (Gnana, Sakthi, Ayshwaryam, Bhalam, Tejas, Veeram). The Lord even forgets the count of his incarnations and in the front of His devotees, he concludes that his knowledge is nothing in front of them. He forgets His beauty and the fact that he is the lord of maya as well. He also forgets that He is the seed giver and that fact that He can accomplish whatever he wishes for. He is an ocean of mercy and will come down to any level and then  shower his grace on His devotees. Even while playing and making fun of his devotees, the Lord scales down from his level. This can be compared to very educated persons coming down to the level of a child and playing and enjoying the child.

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. 

The only food for our soul is Krishna and we should continuously feed the soul. All other pleasures don't give us the required satisfaction as we yearn for them even after enjoying for them. The only satisfying thing will be Krishna and is the only reason why we have taken birth as human beings. Likewise Nimayee in the nights on seeing darkness thinks of Krishna and requests Him not to play hide and seek.

Nimayee rushes out crying Krishna I am coming to Brindavan to meet you. Then a voice from the sky instructs Nimayee that there will be a time when he can come to Brindavan and until then he has to stay on in Navdeep and spread devoution. When everyone woke up they found out that Nimayee was missing and concluded that he would have only gone to  Brindavan

Nimayee returns home and informs that he was prevented from going to Brindavan as he lacked devoution. In Brindavan most of the residents are already great devotees and hence only in Navdeep there was a need for Nimayee to spread bhakthi. It was Radhika Rani , who spoke as a voice from the sky prevented Nimayee from going to Brindavan. Nimayee begins to behave as if he were mentally unstable and forgets himself. He faints often thinking of Krishna and wakes up at times crying Krishna Krishna

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

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 live with the Lord then we should surrender our mind and intellect to Him. Total surrender means that we live the way the Lord wants us to live. The Lord will take of everything if we submit ourselves totally. Although Meera lived with Kumbha Rana physically, her mind was only attached to Giridhara Goplan. Although Vithura like Akroora stayed with bad company, the Lord only visited his house for a meal though He was invited by everyone including Bhisma, Karna and Duryodana. This is because although Vithura was with bad company, his mind was only attached to Krishna.

Krishna before his departure to Vaikundam request Udhava to meet Vithura and kindly convey His message. Udhava meets Vithura and with joy says that Krishna prior to His departure was also thinking about Vithura only. It does not matter who recollects us but definitely the Lord should remember us. Just imagine despite Vasudevar, Devaki, Nadagopar, Yasoda, Gopis, Gopas and other devoutees, Krishna only remember Vithura at the time of His departure. This proves the amount of devoution Vithura had for Krishna despite the fact that Vithura was a Sudra by birth.

RadheKrishna  RadheKrishna..

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 avatars,  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.

If we join a satsangam group and sing the praises of the Lord, He has no option but to reveal to us. Devotees' eyes are always wet as they are always drowned in the mercy of the Lord. When we lose ourselves only we will be able to experience this happiness.  The Lord has promised to save and nourish all the needs of his devoutees who without any additional thoughts only contemplate on the Lord. The Lord is always thinking of His devotees and His devoutees have nothing else to think other than the Lord!

We should always get drenched in his mercy and cry for his eternal blessings and unable to bear these blessings. Some devoutees begin their devoution with an application to the Lord to give them strength to bear the mercy he is going to shower on them. It is this mercy that is protecting us and Swami Desikar has composed 100 songs called DayaSathagam highlighting the mercy of the Lord (Balaji in Tirupathi). The mercy of the Lord cannot be explained

The pasuram continues next month....

5. 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 one of the great eternal devotees of the Lord namely 'Muktabai'

  • The great Varkari saint was born in 1279 in Alandi to  Govind Kulkarni and Rukmini and was a sibling of the great devotee  Dnyaneshwar
  • The great devotee who wrote 41 Abhangs or devotional songs in her life time
  • The great sister who baked buns on Dnyaneshwar's back when Visoba refused to offer clay pots. She finally initiated Visoba who later went on to become the guru of Namadeva
  • The great soul who also instructed Gorakumbhar to test Namadevar's devoution which led to the enlightenment of Namadeva thorugh Visobha

Please check out Dhaasa Vedham to know about the pravachans and discourses being conducted by Guruji   

Weekly bhajans are held in Chennai, Podanur, Mumbai, USA and East Africa with Guruji Amma's abundant blessings.
