Sri Sathya Sai Baba Teachings

  Namasmarana

Devotee, "If we want to be with You always, what should we do? "
Swami, "Namasmarana, Namasmarana! It can be achieved only by chanting God's Name. Wherever Bhakthi dwells, God resides there".

Devotee, "Please show householders, an easy Divine Path".
Swami, "Whatever you are doing now is enough. Namasmarana alone is enough. If you come again and stand before Me, I will say the same thing over and over again. If I scold you, accept it. It is also good for you".

"Let the mind wander as it likes. Do Namasmarana. It is like placing the pot of water on fire for boiling. The fire of Namasmarana eliminates all the impurities in mind and it becomes pure. That is the SECRET".

"The fire called Namasmarana will burn away your Karma. Butter does not melt until heated. Swami is as soft as butter. Ammayi, this butter (showing Himself) is melting under the heat of your Namasmarana. That is why you are getting opportunity to have Samipya, Sparshan and Sambashan".

"Look, even Purandaradasa has said that remembering the Name of the Lord is enough. I tell you the same thing. Name of the Lord alone is enough"

- Swami in the book "Sathya Sai Anandadayi"

  • 1946 "All the people in the world worship one God or another. It is enough if the Name of God is recited. Ammayi, mind to Madhava, body to the world. Whatever work you are doing, if you keep remembering Me, that is enough".
  • 1950's "Look, even Purandaradasa has said that remembering the Name of the Lord is enough. I tell you the same thing. Name of the Lord alone is enough".
  • 1958 Devotee, "Instead of chanting all names, can't Your Name alone be chanted perpetually?" Swami, "Definitely. Is it not much more auspicious? But be sure to meditate upon One name and One form. Then one will remember Him, when the end comes. He will be freed from the cycle".
  • 1962 "In the older days, people wrongly thought that they could attain God by doing Tapas and neglecting their bodies. They finally got the Elixir called God's name (Namasmarana), which is left for you to recite and enjoy. You have to drink this Elixir. This is the simplest way to realise God".
  • 1961 Even Sri Kasturi did not know the meaning of the Name "Makaranta Vibedana". Swami explained, "Makara itself has no meaning. Kamakoti means mutitude of desires. They are like Makaras, ie. crocodiles. Vibedana - One who slays them. Hence the Name.
  • 1950's "Why do you often say you are tired of wordly life? You cannot have this experience anywhere else. But do not burden your mind with family. With Namasmarana, you can cross all hurdles".
  • 1959 "If the mind decides, it can make the body bend to its dictum. Without thinking about the leg pain, you focus your mind on Japa-Dhyana. It will cure by itself. Would the river go in search of pot-holes away from the main stream? But when in spate, all muck and dirty waters are washed out and only pure water stays in the holes. The flood is God's Grace. The river is Namasmarana. Some rivers end in a lake or tank. But when the rain called 'God's Grace' pours down on the river called 'Namasmarana', it results in a spate, destined to reach the sea called 'God'. Your Karma gets destroyed by My Darshan, Sparshan and Sambashan. I have kept Omkara, Japa, Dhyana etc. to stop wasting time in talking unnecessarily."
  • 1950's "I performed Leela upto the age of 16. Then onwards I am showing My Mahimas. To understand My Mahimas, Namasmarana alone is enough. Namasmarana alleviates all sorrows and helps overcome all difficulties".
  • 1950's "Let the mind wander as it likes. Do Namasmarana. It is like placing the pot of water on fire for boiling. The fire of Namasmarana eliminates all the impurities in mind and it becomes pure. That is the SECRET".
  • 1959 "The fire called Namasmarana will burn away your Karma. Butter does not melt until heated. Swami is as soft as butter. Ammayi, this butter (showing Himself) is melting under the heat of your Namasmarana. That is why you are getting opportunity to have Samipya, Sparshan and Sambashan".
  • 1950's "It is important to pass the courses prescribed in this college (Himself). Even if you do not pass, at least attendance should be there (visiting Him often). I get you over here and make the current flow again and recharge. If the speed of the generator is increased, the production of current also increases. If Namasmarana is done constantly, then there is no question of either filling or draining your spiritual batteries."
  • 1958 Devotee, "If we want to be with You always, what should we do? "Swami, "Namasmarana, Namasmarana! It can be achieved only by chanting God's Name. Wherever Bhakthi dwells, God resides there".
  • 1960 Devotee, "Please show householders, an easy Divine Path". Swami, "Whatever you are doing now is enough. Namasmarana alone is enough. If you come again and stand before Me, I will say the same thing over and over again. If I scold you, accept it. It is also good for you".
