Mahamantra is precious; so precious that Krishna blesses this Mantra only to people whom He loves the most.

~ HH Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

Just as Arjuna had meticulous focus only on the bird’s eye as instructed by his preceptor Dronacharya, so be our mind with unflinching attention on Mahamantra and Mahamantra alone.

~ HH Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

I came to you, Oh Lord, with a heavy heart and empty hands; Now, after chanting the Mahamantra, my heart is light and my hands are full with your blessings!

~ HH Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

Oh ye friend! Arise! The moment has come to start the Mahamantra movement and deliver it to the world!

~ HH Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

When you are in tension, pay attention to Mahamantra.

~ HH Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

If you are an advaiti, be a perfect advaiti and chant the Mahamantra.

If you are a vishishtadvaiti, be a perfect vishishtadvaiti and chant the Mahamantra.

If you are a dvaiti, be a perfect dvaiti and chant the Mahamantra, because the Mahamantra is not in contradiction to any siddhantha

~HH Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

A kind-hearted gentleman has permitted us to reside in his premises. Not only has he been magnanimous enough to accommodate us, but he has also ensured that our stay is most pleasurable in every possible way. Any man with a conscience would feel that the least he can do in return is be of some use to that gentleman. Wouldn’t he?

Likewise, God has housed us in this wonderful, magnificent world. He has taken such meticulous care to ensure that our stay is comfortable in every possible manner. Do we not owe it to God to be of some use to Him and make Him happy?

The only way to make Him happy is to chant the Mahamantra and make others chant too

~HH Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

Mahaprabhu made lions and tigers sing and dance to the tune of Nama Kirtan. What does this show? If you chant the Mahamantra continuously, the whole world will be at your feet.

~ HH Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

It is said that when we breathe, we take in oxygen and breathe out carbon dioxide. This beautiful phenomenon is a part of the Lord’s astonishing creation. We cannot entirely understand this phenomenon. Similarly, when we allow the Mahamantra to get inside us, either by chanting or hearing, all the sins accumulated in the past come out. This is also because of the infinite compassion of the Lord.

~ HH Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

A person’s bad temper is reflected in his words – he throws tantrums. Likewise God’s anger is displayed as natural calamities such as drought, flood, earthquake and so on. When we know the cause of a person’s anger, we can pacify him. Likewise, to pacify God, all that is required of us is Mahamantra Kirtan.

~ HH Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

During our visit to a Temple we receive the Divine Grace as 'prasad' to take back home. The Divinity in the Temple embraces us and comes along with us. This verily is 'prasad' and not just the coconut or fruits received. Is it then not obligatory on our part to give something back, in return for the 'prasad' blessed with? Chanting the Divine Name, the Mahamantra, at least a few times, is the best offering to the Divine Presence in the Temple, in return for the 'Grace' we carry home as 'prasad'!People are proud of so many things in life.

~ HH Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

If someone were to ask us about our educational qualification, we mention only the highest degree that we have earned, don’t we? Performance of Namakirtan is the noblest of all work. So, if anyone desires to know what you are, instead of telling them that you are an advocate or a doctor or a software engineer, proudly tell them that you perform Mahamantra Kirtan!

~ HH Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

Although the significance of the Mahamantra has been elaborately mentioned in the Kali Santarana Upanishad, it was only Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, who on seeing the pitiable state of people in the Kali Yuga, out of sheer compassion, gave the Mahamantra to the world and emphasized that it was the only easiest path to attain the highest.

The greatest Maya according to me is that everyone knows in their heart of hearts that there is no other go except chanting the Mahamantra, but they are not willing to accept it and follow it openly.
