A solitary rose or a jasmine flower smells great, no doubt. But it can never match the sweet fragrance of a bouquet full of them. Likewise, chanting Nama individually is great; but more radiant are the vibes generated by chanting as a group. ~ HH Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji
A good family is a family which chants Nama regularly. ~ HH Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji
While closing his day’s accounts, if a merchant finds that his profit has fallen short of target, he will remain sleepless until he finds a way to recoup the difference. Likewise, if you are unable to perform your stipulated count of Nama for the day, you should strive hard to make up for it in the following days. ~ HH Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji
If you develop love, it is meditation. If you chant, you will develop love. So, chanting is nothing but meditation. ~ HH Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji
If we chant looking at the time, the results will also take time. ~ HH Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji
Walking will burn cholesterol; Chanting will burn sins; Chanting while walking will burn both. ~ HH Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji
Rather than speak at length about the greatness of the Divine Name, prove it be chanting. ~ HH Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji
Chanting Hari Nama will make us chat with Hari! ~HH Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji
Chanting lips make many hands work ~HH Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji
Do not be a burden to Mother Earth. When do you become a burden to Earth? When you fail to chant the Divine Names or do atma vichara! If you chant the Divine Names or do atma vichara you cease to be a burden to her! ~HH Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji
To attain siddhi (potency) of the mantra to detoxify the scorpion sting one has to do japa of that mantra incessantly. Only then can he be successful. Instead if he chants the mantra only at the time he is about to cure a person inflicted with a scorpion sting, it will not work. Similarly, we should chant Nama even while we are happy and comfortable. Only then we shall never experience difficulties in life. However, even if we do happen to face any difficulty the power of Nama will wipe it off. ~HH Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji
