His Holiness Maharanyam Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji, hailing from Chennai, India, is a philosopher and spiritual preceptor who practices and propagates the practical aspects of Indian spirituality. GOD USA has his philosophy as its guiding principles.
His key activities are in the direction of educating people of the fact that real happiness is very much within one’s own self and that inner peace and tranquility will naturally lead to universal brotherhood and harmony. Realization of this truth in this age of haste and hurry is as much possible and practicable as it was in earlier ages, and can be attained by simple but sustained practices that include mind control and chanting of the Divine Name of God, especially the “Hare Rama…” Mahamantra.
He inculcates a spirit of universal acceptance, coupled with intense faith and steadfast devotion on the path the spiritual seeker is treading on.
Sri Swamiji believes that Nama Kirtan (singing the name of the Lord) is the easiest way to perform Bhakti and attain liberation in this Kali Yuga. Srimad Bhagavatam and many other scriptures in Sanatana Dharma advocate this as the simplest means to attain the Lord. Scriptures say, “While mental repetition of the Divine Names leads to the good of the individual, chanting the Divine Names loudly purifies the chanter, the listener and the very place where the chanting is done.” In keeping with the Kali Santarana Upanishad, Sri Swamiji advocates singing of the ‘Hare Rama…’ Mahamantra as the only way to overcome the ills of worldly existence and attain divine bliss.
