Power of Faith in The Holy Names

  • What is it that the Holy Names can’t give to one who has full faith in the Holy Names?
  • You wholeheartedly say “I am Yours” and the Lord reciprocates..
  • There is nothing like the association of Nam-parayan Vaishnavs who have no other shelter but the Holy Names. Those who are completely dedicated to Nam-Sadhana and have irrevocable faith that the Names can give everything. Those who have fully realized that Harinam is Chintamani (Divine-Wish-Fulfilling-Touchstone).
  • Attentive chanting never disappoints. Only inattentive chanting does. And not only you, it disappoints the Holy Names as well.
  • Whenever you feel your heart is not melting during chanting or you are not able chant attentively then start doing Nitainam Lekhan with your left palm along with chanting and see the magic!
  • Eating grains without completing one’s Sadhana is never a good idea.
  •  “How can one attain perfection within a single lifetime?
Answer: If one gives up one’s free will and fully surrenders to Sri Gurudeva, and then performs bhajana without duplicity under his guidance, one will attain perfection within a single lifetime.” (Shrila Bhaktisiddhant Saraswati Thakhur Prabhupad)

Drown in Bliss Everyday

bhakativinoda, kṛṣṇa-bhajane,
anakūla pāya jāhā

prati-dibase, parama-sukhe,
swīkāra koroye tāhā

So Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakur in his bhajana śuddha-bhakata-caraṇa-reṇu, he writes this concluding statement. kṛṣṇa-bhajane, anakūla pāya jāhā. Whatever he finds favorable to Krishna bhajan, everyday prati-dibase, parama-sukhe, with the greatest happiness, he accepts all those activities which are favorable to his bhajana, which are favorable to his bhakti. This is very important. For a devotee, the only goal is to enhance his bhajana quantitatively and qualitatively. The sadhna, bhakti, the seva everything should increase in terms of quantity and in terms of quality. Whatever you find favorable, you get smarana by doing Nitainam Lekhan, by doing Nitai Kirtana, hearing and reading, chanting, association, then do all these things with the greatest happiness. This is the only activity in which you should spend all your time.

Always remain engaged, especially when you are not in dhama, then you cannot waste a single moment, because you are unprotected. If you give up your body outside dhama and you are not even doing bhajana, smarana, if your consciousness is not fixed in the Lord, then you are in a very risky position. So outside dhama you should be more cautious that you do not waste a single moment. You should be very afraid of death. Any moment it may come and then you will waste this precious human life. In the dhama one is more secure, and in dhama bhajana becomes very easy also. But when you are outside dhama, you must be alert, very conscious. prati-dibase, not even a single day you should compromise with your bhajan, your sadhana, your remembrance, your seva, no compromise, there is no room for that because you are in a very very risky position.

So with great delight, with great happiness, parama-sukhe, you must engage yourself in Krishna bhajana and in everything that leads to quantitative and qualitative enhancement of your bhajana. Accept everything that is favorable and reject everything that is unfavourable, then everyday your bliss will increase in bhajana, you will get more and more steadiness and strength to say no to the temptations of maya because you will be drowning in the bliss. You will be actually getting the higher taste which will allow you to give up the lower taste.

And your nishtha for bhakti, your nishtha for the higher taste will reflect in your words, will be reflected in your acharana, your behavior, and others around you will also be inspired to perform bhakti because they’ll feel that you are getting some higher taste, then they will also start hankering for it. Start aspiring for it. They will also start chanting the Hare Krishna Mahamantra, doing Nitainam Lekhan and kirtana, because they will see you directly in so much bliss, pratyaksha, that they will also get inspired.

Joy Nitai!

Effect of Nitai Vayulekhan on the Chanting of the Hare Krishna Mahamantra

6.6

Nitai Airwriting has a miraculous effect on the quality of chanting the Hare Krishna Mahamantra. Firstly, it makes the mind so calm and peaceful that when you chant after airwriting your mind will not wander here and there. It enables us to chant the Hare Krishna Mahamantra with rapt attention with our minds and hearts fully focused on the transcendental form of the Lord. Secondly, it melts our heart and deals with our false ego in such a way that we naturally feel a taste on our tongue while chanting the Hare Krishna Mahamantra. Lastly, we feel instant relief from all kinds of offenses and sinful reactions after airwriting as Nitai is the most merciful Lord who forgives all our repeated mistakes and offenses like no one else. Thus, Nitai Airwriting gives an extremely powerful and multi faceted boost to the chanting of the Hare Krishna Mahamantra.

If apathy for chanting the Holy Names is the greatest disease, then Nitai Airwriting is the greatest doctor and His subsequent mercy is the greatest medicine to cure it.
