Sri Swamiji celebrated the special occasion at the holy kshetras of Senganoor and Govindapuram, near Kumbakonam in Tamil Nadu. That night was a rare total lunar eclipse, an extremely auspicious time to perform Nama sankirtan. So on Guru Poornima night, at Govindapuram (the hallowed  ‘Nama’ kshetra that is home to the jiva samadhi of the great saint Sri Bhagavan Nama Bodhendra Saraswati Swami), at Chaitanya Kuteeram (the abode of Lord Jagannatha and Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu himself), under the shining full moon, blissful Mahamantra kirtan was performed. During the day, as part of the celebrations at Senganoor, Sri Swamiji gave a brief upanyasam about the significance of Guru Poornima and the importance of the Guru.

HH Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji has composed a “Vedanta Athichoodi”, a poetic work that speaks of life’s most important principles. This article speaks about “Aimpulan Adakku” – one of the Athichoodi verses.

The mind and the senses are related and affect each other. The five senses provide constant stimuli to the mind and in turn trigger different thoughts in our mind and keep the mind completely engaged. But this constant engagement is detrimental because it saps mental energy. Mental energy is akin to water flowing in a canal. If too many outlets are dug in a canal, the water gets diverted and the flow in the main canal decreases.
It is thus imperative that one should keep his senses in control in order to progress in spiritual life.
