We have fallen into this gutter of Family Life.. Discourse Excerpts by Sri Sri Muralidhara swamiji

Dear All,

We have fallen into this gutter of Family Life. It is out of sheer compassion that the Guru’s lean down to look at us. They tell us, "Oh! Child! You have fallen into this gutter. Let me help you out of it!"

But, what does the man inside say?

He says, "Oh! Swami! You desire to lift me out. But, what if you fall into it while trying to lift me out?"

This is because he is unable to develop faith in the Guru.

The Mahan says, "Don't you think that I value my life? If there were the risk of my falling down, would I offer to lift you up? I have the tapas (Penance) to lift lakhs of such people. Do not worry on that account."

Now, the man in the ditch while believing in the strength of the Mahan (Saint) begins to doubt the strength of the rope that is being thrown down to hold for climbing up.

The Saint says, "Please look at the trademark of the rope! One should fear only a new path. The path that is being shown is Nama Sankirtan (Chanting the Divine Names of Lord) –

"HARE RAMA HARE RAMA RAMA RAMA HARE HARE |
HARE KRISHNA HARE KRISHNA KRISHNA KRISHNA HARE HARE"

It is by chanting only this that innumerable Saints in India attained the highest state. This is the path that was followed by many saints like Mirabai, Thiagaraja Swami, Bodendral, etc. Innumerable Panduranga devotees have attained the Lord through Nama japa and Nama kirtan. If I advocate a new path it should instill fear in you. But, innumerable Saints have followed this. Therefore, hold on to it tight."

The man asks further, "Would you ask for fee once I come up?"

The Saint says, "The satisfaction of having helped you out will suffice. I need no other fee other than your coming out of this!"

Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :
Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
