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

RadheKrishna RadheKrishna...
The biggest mistake that you commit is that if anybody says anything, you go and flock like ants and bees. Who can develop our minds and what is that we lack. We have idighasas, puranas and again repeat the chat and see how your life changes. All these mind developing things are gimmicks and the same thing is being said under ten different banners to earn money. Whenever vacation starts then everybody registers for a course. How old is the water in the swimming pool and at least in a pond there are fishes to ensure clean water. The rubber ring and the solution that gets poured turns me off and at the same time I cant help but laugh at people

People are there to earn money but we should leave a peaceful life. Hence here after think through everything and then decide. There are coaching classes for everything and once I happened to notice a yoga class. A famous personality had a gathering of more than 2000 attendees and the thing that was thought was that to imagine ourselves holding a bucket full of water and pretending to do things. If we just do our household chores that is sufficient enough! Then he demonstrated how to wash and clean clothes (imagination) and dry it. Is this yoga and for this are we paying a fee? That day I realized the nature of the world we are living in..

Mind development continues.........

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 liste
ning 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. 

People began to wonder what happened to Nimayee and even some suggested that he is suffering from a mental disease. This happened to Sita as well when she saw Aanjeneya and determined that she must be dreaming or must be catching a mental disease and because of which only she is hearing someone in Lanka speaking to her. Then she realised that she is very much aware of the surroundings and hence this cannot be dream or a disease and Aanjeneya's visit must be true. Then fear grips Sita because she was worried that Ravana himself might have come disguised (as Aanjeneya) but she eliminates as Ravana cannot utter Ram's name.

Some recommended that Nimayee's brain nerves have been affected and can be cured by medicines. Some suggest that Nimayee has become a great devotee and some said that he was just acting. If even we can take that Nimayee had been acting, how long can he act? Again the devotees feelings cannot be reenacted by ordinary people. The devoutional experiences will not be got even if we were to do rigorous penance without food and water and only the blessings of a guru will yield a person these experiences. Again some said that Nimayee has reached the depth of devoution and everyone gave his or her opinion. Nimayee is in a state that nobody could comprehend

At time our child will cry endlessly and we will try to feed, give medicines but will not be able to figure out why the child is crying despite being our own. If this cannot be comprehended then the tears resulting due to love for Krishna cannot be explained or comprehended as well. Even sage Naradha said that the experience cannot be explained or described. His friends concluded that there has been a change in Nimayee's life and they were eagerly expecting this change in them as well

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 the demons have attained Krishna, it is needless to say that Swami Ramanuja, Adi Shankara, Madhwacharya and Krishna Chaitanya Mahaprabhu all attained Krishna. The Lord is just asking our minds and he is not dictating that we should sit in one corner with chanting beads. He has not asked us to give flowers or submit monthly 10,000 rupees and then give our minds. Neither has the Lord asked us to wake at 3:30 in the morning and give our minds but he simply asking us to give our minds as is.

To give an example, we should submit our minds to the Lord like how a chaste wife will submit to her husband. The elders look for a match for their daughter, fix it and get her married and there has not been any association till then. Even with this minimal association the wife submits herself and her soul to the husband and this is how we must surrender our mind to the Lord.

Like how a child drinks what ever given by parents without the doubt that this could have been poison, we should surrender our minds to the Lord. Similarly the husband despite the wife cooking for a meal the first day never suspects that the food could have been poisoned and we must this faith with the Lord. Again we trust car and bus drivers and get into the vehicle without second thoughts and similarly we should believe that Krishna is very much present and submit our minds to 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 azhwar wishes to give up the position of a king which is not giving him any happiness. Instead he likes to be a simple devotee and longs for the day where he can come and mingle with the devotees in Srirangam. To be honest we must long to roll in Srirangam and then only all our past sins which we have rolled else where and accumulated will go away. 

If we look at our birth, in the mother's womb we are rolling in our own excreta and this is true whilst we are a child as well as in our old age where due to weakness we are unable to have the strength to clean ourselves. At times out of desire, fear and due to lack of sleep , we keep rolling in one direction or the other. The azhwar is fed up with his births and concludes that he wishes to come to Srirangam and roll at the lotus feet of the Lord to end all his births. If the azhwar were to born again, he just longs to be born in Srirangam, grow up there and die at the feet of Lord Ranganatha.

We will conclude the pasuram next month with an experience of Swami Ramanuja and why he had rolled in front of Lord Ranganatha

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 'Badrachala Ramadasar'

  • The great soul Ramadasu was born Kancherla Goparaju in 1620 in an affluent Niyogi Telugu Brahmin family to Linganna Murthy and Kamamba in Nelakondapalli village of Khammamett Taluk
  • The great devotee of Rama who spent all the sultan's revenues to repair and reestablish the glory of the temple in Badrachalam
  • The great singer and poet spent 11-12 years in jail and Lord Rama and Lakshmana themselves came to repay the sultan's debt in gold coins and released the devotee
  • The great composer and poet is well renowned for his Telugu kirtans Ramadasu Keertanalu
  • The great soul also composed Dasarathi Shatakamu a collection of 108 songs in dedicated of the son of Dasaratha, Lord Rama
  • The great devotee whom the Lord himself came in dream and promised liberation and the great soul attained the Lord in 1680
Please check out Dhaasa Vedham to know about the pravachans and discourses being conducted by Guruji
