Narada Bhakti Sutra

Narada Bhakti Sutra

Who is a Bhakt ? What is Bhakti ?
Whom do I belong to ? What is my relation to the Lord ?
How do I see the doership of the Lord in my life ? How do I invoke the Bhakt in me ?
How to make the Lord important in my life ?

 

Swami Abhedananda enlightens our minds and hearts with answers to these questions in his inimitable style in these discourses on Narada Bhakti Sutras, conducted as a three-part Gnyana Yagna series.


In these talks, Swamiji beautifully unfolds the meaning of the sacred aphorisms of Maharishi Narada and brings the listener closer to the Lord.


One definition of Bhakthi is Bhajanam Naama Rasanam. Which is the repeated and joyous remembrance of the qualities of the lord. Let us revel in the glories of the Lord , by soaking in words of Swamiji.

Durga-The Power in You

Durga-The Power in You

All power of the world belongs to that ONE POWER, who is sentient and conscious. This Power is the holder and the source of all energies in this creation and that is Mother Durga. We are weak because our ego has disconnected us from the power of the Cosmic Mother. Through these powerful, heart rending talks Swami Abhedananda reveals the secret to reclaiming our lost power.

Swamiji explains how through Upasana (worship) we can reconnect with Mother Durga and make Her active in our lives. We should not look for the limited power in the object, like the power of people or the power of wealth etc. But aim for the object less power, the conscious power – the one who is All Power.

Swamiji with his intense, devotional call invokes the all compassionate Mother to accept us and to take us in her lap. Through these talks learn to dissolve your ego, so that you too can manifest the hidden Mother Durga – the power in you.

The Power of Surrender

The Power of Surrender

Swami Abhedananda beautifully defines thus “Surrender is the joyul and humble acceptance of the Lord’s will in most unconducive, unfavourable and unwanted situations!”

Through the deep character of Shri Bharat ji, Swamiji beautifully explains the power of total surrender and how if we practice it in our daily lives, we will be free from the poison of worry, anxiety, doership, ego and attachment.

Sewa (service) and Samarpan (commitment) are most exalted in the character of Shri Bharat Ji who is a personification of surrender and renunciation. Shri Bharat Ji demonstrated how one’s life should only be for the Lord, doing every action only as the representative of the Lord.

Will God come for me?​

Will God come for me?

Worship of the Lord is not merely a mechanical activity; it is the melting of our heart for the Lord, and internal re-assertion of our total identification with God alone! Our journey towards God takes place in two steps: first through Prayer and second through Surrender. Every individual has a hidden personality within, which is of an intense, pure and selfless lover! Our worship should be done with such intense love that one day it should fructify by pulling the Lord Himself to manifest and accept our offering.
Delving into this divine episode from “Aranya Kand” of Shri Ramcharitmanas, Swami Abhedananda brings outs the subtlety of relationship between the Lord and His devotee. He shows how we can increase our sense of surrender to invoke the power of devotion within us, to make the inexpressive God expressive and active in our lives. Uncover the hidden lover within you and ornate your pure faith with implicit surrender! Thus make Lord walk towards you.
