Does God benefit if you chant his name? No you do ~ 4 May 2013

  1. As Sriranga, He resides on the banks of the Cauvery. As Sri Krishna, He resides in the town of Mathura. Why sing His praise or recite His name? Who benefits? Is it the One whose name is chanted? Or is it the one who chants His name?
    Mother struggles to feed her little one. So, Grand Ma picks her up. “You like Krishna, beta?” she asks. Little one nods yes. Grand Ma says “Very nice. Please eat this mouthful for Krishna. Chalo, say aaa..” One spoonful goes in
    Now Grand Ma asks: “You like Grand Pa, beta?” Little one nods yes. “So sweet of you. Please eat this mouthful for Grand Pa” One more spoonful goes in
    Who is benefiting here? Obvious?
    Pranams Sathguru!
    Seated like Meera, you remind us of how much she valued chanting & singing Krishna’s name. We’ve also enjoyed the rejuvenation that comes with Nama Japa & Nama Sankeertana. Ever so grateful to you for having initiated into this divine practice. We are benefiting. No doubt.
    Jaya Guru Datta. Your Puttuji

    Humble prostrations at the lotus feet of Our Sri Krishna Sathgurudeva _/\_!!

  2. Jaya Guru Datta Appaji ! Thank you for the wonderful MMS. The Mantras of the day, Saturday are so blissful “Om Govindaya Namah and Om Narayanaya Namah “!! Pranams Appaji !! We definitely get cleansed by chanting these Mantras and get a very good and fresh feeling of being placed at the lotus feet of Pujya Sri Swamiji !! The bhajan ” Kaveri Thatavasi Sri Ranga Ranga ” gave me the immense happiness with the pleasant memories of good old days, when Appaji used to sing this bhajan in early 1970s. Pranams Sadguru Deva !!

  3. Jgd.Chanting God”s name is a Boon given to Human in the Kaliyuga.A Easy way to cleanse One”s mind and body is By chanting God:s name.No other Life other than Man is endowed with the Gift os saying Govinda.By not chanting we atre loosing a beautiful gift of God.

  4. Jai Guru Datta
    This we want, with the energy of GOD to sharp our mind, so that we are able to reflect GOD in HIS full beauty.
    Sri Guru Datta and thousands of prostration to YOU APPAJI
    Om Namo Hanumate Namaha

    కనుగొంటే మోక్షమిచ్చి కానకుంటె కర్మమిచ్చి |

  5. And once again I Humbly ask, Please tell me the names. If anyone is in need for a clean and sharp mind it is I. So Please, anyone, tell me. Maybe I’m stupid, I can live with that but this is not the first time I hear of the blessings by chantin God’s name. 🙂 <3 Vishwa

    Jaya Guru Datta – Kalau Naama Sankeertanaanmuktih – Singing the divine names of God is the only solution to cross this ocean. As we, mere humans, cannot sing the glory of the Lord God – He Himself arrived as Appaji and started to teach us the ways to sing His glory. Thanks a lot Appaji

    • sridevi on May 5, 2013 at 10:33 am

    Jai Guru Datta! Chanting, singing, internally, externally, anyway it gives a lot of joy and inner peace. Our Sadgurudeva’s bhajans are most delicious and powerful for this practise….Om namo Hanumate namah

    • Hira Duvvuri on May 5, 2013 at 11:49 am

    But, dearest, sweetest Swamiji! You yourself have also told us that if we lie down and chant your name, you sit up and listen with joy. If we sit up and chant your name, you stand up and listen with glee. If we stand up and sing your name, you dance while you listen with ecstasy. That makes us both benefit because I am happy to sing your names and you are happy to listen to me singing your names. What do I care about any other benefit to anyone or whether my mind is blunt or sharp? I am happy and you are even happier. What more to ask for! I love you. Jaya Guru Datta

    339. దేవుని నామం నువ్వు పలికితే దేవుడు లాభం పొందుతాడా? పొందడు. నువ్వు పొందుతావు. నీ మనస్సు పవిత్రమవుతుంది, పదునవుతుంది.ఓం గోవిందాయ నమః – ఓం నమో నారాయణాయ
    మా ముద్దుల బుజ్జి బుజ్జి అప్పాజీ, మీరే మునుపు మాకు ఒక రహస్యం చెప్పారు. భక్తులు పడుకుని మీ నామం పలికితే మీరు కూర్చుని ఆనందంగా వింటారు. భక్తులు కూర్చుని మీ మహిమలు వర్ణిస్తే మీరు నిలబడి సంతోషంగా వింటారు. భక్తులు నిలబడి మీ గానం ఆలపిస్తే మీరు నృత్యం చేస్తూ వింటారు. నా మనస్సు మొద్దుబారితే నాకెంత? పదునైతే నాకెంత? నాకంటే మీరెక్కువ సంతోషపడితే నాకు అంతకంటే ఇంకేమి కావాలి? మీ నామం ఎల్లవేళలా మా అందరి పెదవులపైన , మనస్సులలోన, హృదయాంతర్గంతంగాను కూడా పలుకబడి, మీకు వినిపిస్తూనే ఉండనీ అని ప్రార్థిస్తున్నాను. జయ గురు దత్త

    • S.Radhamani on May 5, 2013 at 1:26 pm

    Many many hundred thousands percent correct. The bhajans of His Holiness alone
    today redeems me from the scattering scenes of turmoil and others’ vicious temperament
    that cause tension and anxiety amidst us. Infact humming His bhajans only way to show Faith and Respect for Him.

    • TR.Sethuraman, Cochin on May 5, 2013 at 1:57 pm

    What a melodious MMS, Appaji has given through the MMS 339. It is also a warning to us that chanting of divine mantra of God is only for our benefit and not for God. Puttuji , you have also given a nice explanation about Sri Ranga, Krishna an d Narayana and also how a mother struggles the little one to feed. How a grand mother affectionately saying about Krishna and feed the child. From this we should learn how affectionately , Appaji is teaching us the divine mantra of God and also the beautiful Bhajans. It is our duty and for our benefit we should chant and practice the Bhajans. The photography and the Bhajan are very apt for this MSG. Thank You , Appaji to give us such a wonderful lesson and we will certainly follow You in all respect for our benefit. JGD.

    Sathgurudeva, speech from Hyderabad Ashrama , April 7, 2011.
    The means for attaining liberation is different in each of the four Yugas.
    In Krita Yuga it was Smarana, remembrance.
    In Treta Yuga it was performing Yajna and Yaga, religious fire rituals and austerities.
    In Dwapara Yuga it was Archana or worship.
    In Kali Yuga it is Sankeertana, singing the names of God.
    Chanting Appaji’s name and Appaji given mantras regularly destroys fear, worries, miseries and gives us inner bliss and peace of mind which in turn helps us discover Sathgurudeva within us.
    Thank you Pujya Gurudeva for intiating us into the divine practice of Nama Japa, Nama Sankeertana & Nagara Sankeertana !!
    Om Govindaya Namah !! Om Namo Narayanaya !!
    Sri Guru Datta !! Om Namo Hanumathe Namah !!

    • Archana Penukonda on May 6, 2013 at 1:31 am

    Jaya Guru Datta! What can we give the creator who is infinite? What can we give God who takes on the form of a Guru only to uplift us? What can the seva we do to the Ashrama do for Swamiji? Nothing. The Guru is too big for His missions to be affected by any or all of us. All these sevas aren’t but Swamiji’s ways of cleansing and purifying us. Chanting God’s names and singing Sri Swamiji’s bhajans calm the mind, helps us focus better and slowly fill us with the knowledge we need to navigate this samsara. The Guru never has anything to gain or lose. Thank You for this reminder, Swamiji. Chanting God’s name with love fills our hearts with divine love and keeps our mind sharp and clean. Obeisances at the Holy Lotus Feet!

    jayagurudatta puttuji, sashtangapranams at lotus feet of poojya swamiji, poojya swamiji told many times to us, chanting god,s name or doing gurseva , they will not get any benifit, guru or god they do not require any thing, this all things for our sake, and for our benifit, om namo hanumathenamhaa

    • madhu talwar on May 7, 2013 at 12:30 pm

    • Pavani Kamalapuram on May 7, 2013 at 11:32 pm

    JGD Appaji
    God Himself is singing, chanting and training us to sing His glory along with Him.. ..can there be a greater blessing than this.. or greater Bliss than listening to His divine voice and being able to sing along.. Thank You for this birth Appaji..let us always be singing with You forever.
