Life is unpredictable. Everyone is born and death is sure to everyone at a certain point of time. But no one can predict in which form and when death occurs. So life is a temporary phenomenon. Change is the rule of the universe. No one has the right to question this or ability to control it. In the past so many natural calamities have occurred and many a time we are unaware of such devastating incidents. Even recently the tsunami waves and earthquakes have shattered the whole world. So many people died and many lost their loved ones, houses and livelihood. Whether we like or not we have to accept it.
  
The so-called scientific development can only to some extent predict such occurrences but the happenings cannot be stopped. The scientists can explain the reason of the incident only after it occurs. No one can give assurance of non-happening of such incidents in the future. But anyone can safeguard himself or herself from these natural calamities by surrendering to Bagawan Krishna.

We all wish that such incidents should not occur in future. For that, from today itself we must put efforts. The effort that we have to put is, chant Lord’s name. By chanting Lord’s name there is nothing to worry and to be afraid of. 

So chant constantly Krishna Krishna Krishna Krishna Krishna Krishna Krishna Krishna Krishna Krishna Krishna Krishna Krishna Krishna Krishna Krishna Krishna Krishna Krishna Krishna Krishna Krishna Krishna Krishna Krishna Krishna Krishna Krishna.   

Wherever you are, whatever you do never forget the Lord’s name!!! 

There is no restriction regarding caste, creed, age, religion, status, gender, nationality etc., for chanting the Lord’s name.   

Let us all come together and Chant for world peace. Everyone wishes to help in some way or the other at this present situation. But it is not possible for everyone to lend a helping hand to meet all sorts of requirements. God only knows the real needs of the needy. By our chanting Bagawan Sri Krishna will surely fulfil the needs of those needy.

1. THE DIVINE MESSAGE - MESSAGE FROM POOJYASHREE SHREE AMMA - THE ULTIMATE LIBERATOR BESTOWED BY LORD SHRI KRISHNA!


Radhekrishna!

Blessings to one and all in the world.

Many of us are not satisfied after having eaten onion the taamasik aharam and get frustrated with the person who do not provide it and get angry on them. They feel, let me eat for some more days and are not contented. Hence, this proves that what a child gets from the human beings when it comes to this Bhooloka is the arrogance (ahambhavam) and is a slave to the taste, which again results in arrogance. When the sugar is less in the milk the child refuses to drink it and spits it, which the elders say with pride that the child will not drink it since the sugar is less. They say my child will not drink plain milk. Who has created this habit? It is only the elders who have created this habit in child. This is a type of ahambhavam.

Then, they keep thrusting the currency notes in the infant's hands and keep commenting, look, the baby is holding the money tightly, he will prosper. Why? Only the child who holds tightly will be nice and the other children who do not hold tightly will not be nice? Look uncle has come, boy next door has come from abroad!!!! People are crazy about people living in foreign countries. People there too have only two hands, two legs. They also experience hunger and thirst. What do we not have in our country?

Why are people talking big about foreign countries thinking that we do not possess them in our country? Everything is there with us. There they do not have the great things called spirituality, guru paramparai that is there only in India and nowhere. Yoga, that is also there only in India and nowhere else. You have been searching since so many years and in spite of searching for it deeply you did not get and today you have got it. You should search it in the proper place. Will you get it if you search for it anywhere else? Radhekrishna! Looks like today is a very fortunate day for you!!

So, when a child is taking birth in this Bhooloka, we should inculcate the love towards God and instead of teaching about spirituality they are teaching all unwanted things today. Even at the age of 60,70 and 80 years which old man is not looking at the nasty cinema posters while walking on the road? Are they satisfied? On the contrary, they think if nobody is looking at me, let me have a look for some more while. Where are they satisfied?

Firstly, they should have the will power and have a control over these things. It is only the human beings are becoming disorderly though so many elders have been teaching them all the good things. Whereas the animals are the same and happy what they were since so many years though there is nobody to teach them these good things.

People proudly keep saying that their child was born in the Apollo Hospital. How is it possible? A child is born from the mother's womb to this Bhooloka and that too only because of God's wish. The child keeps listening to this incident repeatedly saying he was born in the Apollo Hospital by the elders at home and starts feeling that Apollo Hospital means something special and unknowingly develops arrogance within him by about 2 years of age. Children should be taught only the good things that are about God. Today, none of the elders do it since they themselves are not aware of it and only know about the varieties of T.V.programmes and do not teach about spirituality. 

In those days, a couple of Asuras (wicked demons) lived in the jungles by name. Today, T.V. and computer are the biggest evil things (Asuras). If in a house a child is alone who has a computer and when the parents go out, we can easily assume what the child must have been doing. Today, the things, which are not wanted, are given to the children. Why such things happen? The mother has to go out since she is employed and to compromise the loss of her absence she buys such things for her child. Today, are you all aware as to where our society is directing towards? 

But, to bring back in the proper order is the only breath and work of this Radhekrishna Sathsangam by means of conducting Sathsangam and doing Namajabam for this universe. As Bhagawan Krishna has already quoted in His Bhagavath Geeta that whenever there is a decline to Dharma, I will take my incarnation in this Bhooloka and put back everything in the proper order. Hence, to arouse again the namajabam is the only breath of Radhekrishna Sathsangam, which we are doing. You can also join with us for this and keep chanting within yourselves Krishna, Krishna, Krishna, Krishna, Krishna and by chanting so you can realize the mahimai of Namasankeertana. Each one will realize how an individual should live their lives. Everyone would be thinking, why? Are we not living our lives? Definitely, living the life with chanting will show the difference as to what was their earlier way of living the life, which will put one into shame. 

As everybody in Radhekrishna Sathsangam very commonly tells Guruji Amma for having lost all these days without Guruji Amma.Past is past. Now that you have got it, do not leave it. Enjoy it. So namasankeertanam is the prime. Can we not attain God by doing all the other good deeds? Definitely not. Only by namasankeertanam and attending the Sathsangams one can attain God. Can anybody attain God? Definitely possible. Can one see God? Definitely possible. Can one feel God? Definitely possible. Truly possible. One who is interested in it will enjoy the same when they come to attend the Bhajans and Sathsangams.This is fully true and they will definitely enjoy it. Radhekrishna, Radhekrishna, Radhekrishna.

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.

Radhekrishna, life is full of experiences. Each and every single minute there is a turning point in it and miraculous things take place. Some particular incidents bring about a drastic change in everyone’s life. In the same way an incident took place in Neelan’s life when he met Kumudhavalli. Neelan placed a marriage proposal before Kumudhavalli’s foster father. At that time Kumudhavalli placed a condition to marry him. This is where the last issue was stopped. Are you eagerly waiting to know the condition placed by Kumudhavalli? 

The condition was she would marry only a Sri Vaishnavite.

Vaishnavite means devotee of Supreme personality. In ancient Hinduism’s sacred books there were many slokas illustrating a perfect Vaishnava. There are many different methods in Vaishnavism. Every method has its own procedures and rituals. Even though there are different procedures and rituals, ultimately it takes the devotee to the eternal happiness. Madhvasampradhaya, Gaudiya sampradhaya and Sreevaishnava sampradhaya are some of the different methods of vaishnavism.

Among these sampradhayas, Aazhwars and many great Aacharyas followed Sreevaishnava sampradhaya.

In Sreevaishnava sampradaya, there is a ritual to become a perfect Vaishnavite. The ritual is called as “Panchasamskaram”. "Panchasamskaram means five steps of sanctification

By doing this, bonded soul is blessed by the omnipotent to attain the eternal happiness.

The sacred five steps that are performed by a Sathguru (spiritual master) are as follows :

1. Thaaba Samskaram: 

Marking the shoulders with the symbol of Shankh (Conch) and Chakram (the Sacred wheel). 

2. Dhwaadhasa Oordhva Pundram: 

Adorn ThirumaN [a type of white clay] and Shreechurnam [a product of turmeric] at 12 places on the body. 

3. Dhaasya Naamam: 

Naming, Bagawan’s or devotee’s name followed with ‘dhaasan’ instead of the existing name given by the parents. 

4. Manthra Upadhesam: 

Revealing the power and importance of Nama and instructing the method of chanting. 

5. Thiruvaaraadhanam: 

 (i)  The method of worshipping the Lord. 

 (ii) The method of giving offerings to Lord. 


Those who are accepting these rituals are considered as 'Sri Vaishnavite'. Kumudhavalli insisted this method only. So Neelan wanted to become a SriVaishnavite only to marry Kumudhavalli. Neither he had interest nor faith in the Lord. Radhekrishna! Radhekrishna! Radhekrishna! Radhekrishna! Radhekrishna! Radhekrishna! Radhekrishna! Radhekrishna! Radhekrishna! Radhekrishna! Radhekrishna! Radhekrishna! That’s the power of Bagawan Sri Krishna and His Leela. 

So our Neelan searched for a sathguru [spiritual master] to perform these rituals. But he didn’t find anyone.No one was ready to perform these rituals for Neelan. In spite of this he didn’t loose his desire. You must have a desire like this! Then only you can succeed in your spiritual life. Then only you can enjoy the eternal bliss. Realising the eternal bliss and enjoying it, is the purpose of human life. 

Neelan was in constant search of a Sathguru. But everything was in vain. The days were passing on. As the days were passing on, his desire went on increasing. At last a person agreed to do these rituals for him. That person was...........Wait till next month. Until then Radhekrishna!

3. KRISHNAM VANDE JAGADHGURUM - EXTRACTS FROM THE HOLY BHAGAWATH GEETHA

Poojyashree Shree Amma and Mahaan Brahmashree Gopalavallidasan - Ammavin Thiruvadigale Sharanam!


YathkarOshi yadhashnaasi YajjuhOshi dhadhaasi Yath!
Yaththapasyasi Kountheya! Thathkurushva madharpanam!

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.

Last month we saw how the housewives can do all their karmas for Bagawan Krishna and thereby enjoy their life and can be happy. This month we  will see how the office goers can too be very happy by doing their karmas for Bagawan Krishna.

In our daily life you all go to office and work under one or several persons. We all have stipulated work timings and monotonous job profiles. At many offices the work timings exceed than the normal timings very frequently. There are plenty of late sittings and huge pressure involved. Some bosses treat the employees as servant
