You have nicely practised the mantras. Your pronunciation is flawless. It is a pleasure to hear your chant as it transports one to a new world altogether. You give immense happiness to those who hear the mantras and also effuse positive vibrations as you chant the mantras. Mantras are a means to Sadhakas and we are using you in our Sadhana. Mantras’ intonation positively charges temple premises.
Now let me tell you a secret. You should follow the path of rishis and gurus. Do not limit yourself to knowing mantras by heart. There is no point in chanting them without knowing their import. Also, they should not be chanted for the sake of it. Learn the meaning to feel their full effect. Use your spiritual energy to feel the impact that mantras generate within you. Chanting mantras or indulging in worship should not become a source of livelihood. You should evolve as a bridge between you and the lord and thereby ensure the utility of your life. You should realise your legacy while chanting these meaningful mantras. Everything you indulge in should become an act of meditation. Continue to chant mantras even while you perform pooja or other acts.
The centre for self-realisation at Sridhara Srigudda is a place that seeks to unravel the language of silence that transcends the shackles of language, grammar, alphabets and idioms. It is a place where spiritual aspirants are trained to decipher the language of god, the import of our ancient sages, the teachings of the guru and one’s own inner voice.
The centre is a place where one understands and speaks the language of love and kindness.
Compassion and patience rule supreme here, which prods a person towards self introspection. It is a place where the veneer of illusion is slowly discarded and truth is realised by aspirants, who seek to free themselves from the cycle of life and death.
In this place, pride has no place and withers away gradually. The centre is a place where spiritual aspirants have divine experiences which rejuvenates their soul and gives them a new lease of life.
The centre provides answers to questions one is tormented by. But more importantly, the centre eliminates the scepticism that the mind is so often susceptible to.
