Vedhanaadham - The Sound For The Soul - Dec 2012

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

The main message of first skandha of Srimadh Bagawatham is "Forget & forgive the enemy who gave sufferings to you." Forgiveness is good...

Krishna is residing in our heart.Anyone can meditate this KRISHNA. You are entitled to meditate this form. This is told by SRI SUKHA BRAHMA

SUKHA BRAHMAM said "Hey my dear King ! Lord' name is the best one to chant. Surrendering to Lord is the best way to get rid from sufferings"

Want to know about the creation of the world ?Want to know about Supreme Lord?Want to know about the power of chanting ?Then listen BAGAWAT

Misunderstanding somebody & ill treating them is worse than hell. At any cost don't misunderstand anyone. Understand everyone's position

Pray sincerely. Pray calmly. Pray happily. Pray silently. Don't reveal your prayer to anyone until it gets succeeded. PRAYER IS SIMPLY SUPER

Being soft is a good quality. But you should not allow others to take undue advantage on this quality. YOU MUST KNOW TO SAFEGUARD YOURSELF

You can see the same KRISHNA in the nature too. Some great Yogis are meditating KRISHNA in the nature.It's not so easy for normal people

We should care the elders like Pandavas. King Dhrutharashtra gave all sorts of problems in Pandavas life. Even then they cared him after war

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. 

Gadhadhar falls at Nimayees feet and requests him to bless him with the true longing for Krishna. After much persuasion Nimayee says that Gadhadhara will experience it the next day . On hearing this he became very happy , danced and screamed in joy and became uncontrollable. Seeing this Nimayee also experienced true joy and they hugged each other. You can only be able to withstand this situation if you are in the same bhava or mindset like that of a parallel train track. Else you will not be able to bear the hugs as it requires considerable strength. Seeing this site even the devas wished that they had taken human form on the earth and enjoy such pure devoution.

The entire night was spent by Gadhadhar by chanting the name of Krishna. We should also do this as so many nights have been spent by us uselessly thinking about people. The sugarcane called Krishna is there and is up to us to eat and enjoy its sweetness! Our great devotees have extracted the juice as well and it is up us to drink or taste a sip. Once we get that taste  that it is very difficult to leave the juice. 

Gadhadhara cries out loudly Krishna and hugs a pillar near by. At time he looks at his palms and shouts Krishna Krishna. Once we forget our body in true devoution even our body will manifest as Krishna and every single hair  root will be seen as Krishna. Gadhadhara runs on and off and hugs Nimayee and cries out Krishna Krishna and behaves like a person who has lost his mind. Gadhadhara wishes that he shed his body as he has experienced true happiness but Nimayee stops him and says that he has just tasted the tip of true devoution and there is much more to enjoy
Leela continues...

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 rue over a simple jewellery loss of 5000 or 10000 rupees then imagine that there can never a price tag associated with realising the Lord.  The Lord in Gita instructs us in a similar way to give our minds to Him. To give another example that if we search around and find a dress that we most liked and when it gets torn by accident, we continue to live with the dress even after we stitch it.  In our minds the Lord should always be occupied in the same way we always think about lost opportunities or lost articles.

We only try to occassionally remember the Lord. In the morning we get up light a lamp and say a few slokas. In the evening also we do the same and repeat this on special occasions and celebrations days. But to live the Lord we must continously think about Him. The Lord categorically says that everybody will be able to give up the mind to Him and attain Him. Even Periazhwar laments about the lost time that has gone without thinking about the Lord. Many births and many years have passed without the thought of the Lord.

Even the world can be destroyed and recreated but there exists no birth or death for the soul. No great person can say the number of times he/she has been born as it has been countless births and deaths that we have undergone. We should finish this cycle and this should be our last birth. Even if we were to be born again then it should be like a state of happiness only as that of how a child experiences. The Lord reassures Arjuna that if he gives up his mind and intellect he can live with Him. The Lord also says that despite the location if we surrender our minds and intellects then we will surely live with Him..

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.

Our desires are bigger than the sky itself. The Lord is facing the southern direction just to reassure Vibishana that he will take care of him and his country.There is no change that happens to the mercy of the Lord and we may experience mood swings with every visit to Srirangam temple but you can never experience a change in His disposition.  Right from Kulasekara azhwar days to Thondaradipodi azhwar, Aaandal to Ramanuja to ParasaraBhattar to present day Jeeyars , none of them are able to make out any difference to the Lord and He has been that way ever since. There is always love in the eyes of the Lord but sadly enough this is not being recognized in this world.

We give priority to the love between individuals that exist before they expect something from the other person. However the Lord's selfless love towards us is never recognized by the millions who live in India and we can easily count the few who live for the sake of the Lord's love towards us. Even during pralayam (deluge that destroys the earth) he does not dance but lies down silently so that the souls that are in his body are not disturbed by his actions much in the same way a pregnant mother will not do anything that may harm the child his her womb.

If you notice generally elderly people who lie down in a cot and observe his children and grand children and wish them they grow up well or their problems resolved easily. In the same way despite dancing to our egos all morning and whilst sleeping out of ignorance and tiredness in the night, the Lord longs for us to enjoy His mercy at least when we wake up! It is the same people and the same behaviour that we encounter each day but how is that we expect the next day to better than the previous one?

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 'Ramanand'

  • The great soul was born in 1400 in Prayag to Sushila and PuniyaSadan Sharma
  • The great devotee of Ram was the guru of Tulsidas, Kabirdas and Vittal Kulkarni(Dynaneswar's father)
  • The great soul who spent most of his life in Kasi (varnasi) teaching about the importance of chanting the name of the Lord
  • The great soul who initiated poor and people of low caste and preached that everyone was equal before the Lord
  • The great author wrote Sri Vaishnava, Matanbuj Bhaskar and Sri Ramarachan Padhti and also wrote a commentary called AnandabhAsya

Shabad of Ramananda in Guru Granth Sahib

  • Where should I go?
  • My home is filled with bliss.
  • My consciousness does not go out wandering.
  • My mind has become crippled. || 1 || Pause ||
  • One day, a desire welled up in my mind.
  • I ground up sandalwood, along with several fragrant oils.
  • I went to God’s place, and worshipped Him there.
  • That God showed me the Guru, within my own mind. || 1 ||
  • Wherever I go, I find water and stones.
  • You are totally pervading and permeating in all.
  • I have searched through all the Vedas and the Puraanas.
  • I would go there, only if the Lord were not here. || 2 ||
  • I am a sacrifice to You, O my True Guru.
  • You have cut through all my confusion and doubt.
  • Raamanand’s Lord and Master is the All-pervading Lord God.
  • The Word of the Guru’s Shabad eradicates the karma of millions of past actions. || 3 || 1 ||
