Poojyashree Shree Amma's

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

There will not be any relation to the position of the person who is enjoying his/her time with a child. Even when communicating with the child, we have to come down to the level of the child and ask whether the child had food or is suffering from any discomfort. We come down to the level of the child but the Lord goes further and comes down further than us to shower his grace. This is very true and for devotees the Lord can easily be obtained. Even poet Bharathi says that Krishna is his servant and came down to serve him from somewhere. Bharathi says that the Lord is not of the highest caste or of the lowest cast and is from the middle caste. He questions himself as to what he did in his life to attain Him. Even Thirupanazhwar says that the Lord cut his karma and placed next to him. Then He entered into the azhwar and the azhwar also questions himself as to what he did to attain Him. The azhwar is amazed that despite his lack of any penance that Lord took mercy on him. The same view is being echoed by other great devotees as well.

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. 

Ishwaripuri had transferred his devoution towards Krishna to Nimayee. After this the playful Nimayee begins to wander with a craze for devoution towards Krishna. Just as how Swami Periazhwar said as soon as Krishna entered his body, he got a transformation of life. Krishna is the sole guru for this whole world. He first came as BadriNarayana and initiated Nara Narayana and then later as Krishna to initiate Arjuna through Gita. There is a distinction between the heart that beats as defined by science and the heart that is referred to in Hindu spiritual texts. It is in this spiritual heart lies the source of eternal happiness.

This lotus heart has to bloom to be able to enjoy the nectar like a bee and the guru enters this heart. Most of our hearts are like rubbish bins and the only difference is that the garbage is visible and the bin in our hearts are kept hidden! Only a guru with real strength can enter in to this heart of garbage. The guru for all his disciples has to enter their hearts and do the cleaning job. Again different hearts provide different levels of impurity and has to be cleaned. Just as how Hauman defied all odds and went to Lanka to meet Sita to deliver the message of Rama, the guru with great difficulty enters into our hearts to establish the presence of the Lord!

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.

Vithura was a fortunate soul in that Krishna Himself remember him when He departed this world. Vithura cries to Uddhava that he is unable to bear the mercy of the Lord and there was no need for Him to recollect him on his departure. The reason for this is Vithura always lived as how the Lord had wished him to lead his life. Similarly Rama cries for Jadayu when the bird was hit and was on the death bed. Just imagine how much of devoution that Jadayu should have done. Rama could not even do the last rites for his father Dasaratha and the king was not as fortunate. But Rama did the last rites for Jadayu and this proves the devoution of the bird king.

We should always be thinking of the Lord. Once all the pandavas were having a chat and at one point Arjuna asks Krishna as to what he said was correct. Krishna does not respond and Arjuna asks him what happened. Krishna responds that his mind was not present here and was thinking about the fading lamp Bhisma who is waiting for uthrayana to come and give up his body. This is the strength of Bhisma's devoution and despite every one including Kunthi, Draupathi and others being present, Krishna was thinking about Bhisma. The Lord asserts in Gita that if we give up our minds to Him, we will surely live with Him.

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.

The Lord is in a nice reclining pose in Srirangam. In Srirangam all 365 days in a year there will be some festival or the other being celebrated and the sounds of the celebration will always echo around. Even staunch Vaishnavites will not be able to distinguish the festivals and determine the nature and the cause of the festivals. All 365 days in a year there is celebration in Srirangam and all festivals are of equal importance.

If we hang around in small living place in Srirangam and eat the offerings given to the Lord, we will surely attain mukthi or liberation. We can lead such a peaceful life in one corner in Srirangam and there is nobody to question and nobody to answer to and just us and the Lord. The sounds of celebration always are present in Srirangam and if you notice the players of those musical instruments, they will have a special ego on the account of being closer to Ranganatha. This is a different kind of ego and is not the same as seen in normal human beings.

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 'Vittalnathji'

  • The great soul was the younger son of Shri Vallabacharya and was born in 1516 and is considered to be an incarnation of Vittal Himself
  • The great devotee established the devoutional practices in the temple of Shrinathji which is followed even today. The instructions were conveyed by Shrinathiji Himself
  • The great soul was a poet, a musician and an artist and was honoured by Akbar for his devoution
  • The great father had six sons and four daughters from Rukmini whom he married in 1533
  • The great guru who transformed numerous people and initiated even muslims into the path of devoution towards Krishna
  • The great incarnation of Krishna shed his body in the year 1586 and by then had built a huge devoutional following with 252 of his followers

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