Sri Swamiji’s Extremely Inspiring Message

Sri-Swamiji.jpgGlobal Organization for Divinity was created in 2007 based on Sri Swamiji’s vision as guidance. This year, GOD celebrates its 10th anniversary.

To commemorate GOD’s anniversary and Houston Namadwaar’s 7th anniversary, Sri Swamiji gave a special message about the purpose of Namadwaar.

Prema – The Panacea for the World

Holy_mother_saradaSri Swamiji, in his Namadwaar anniversary address, said, “The simple way of religion is universal love. So, love each other. Then love everybody, love everyone.

We see glimpses of unconditional love in the love of a mother. Sarada Ma, consort of Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa was the embodiment of such unconditional love. She accepted all without questions or rebuke.

 CHERISHED MEMOIRS – 46

 Sri Swamiji on Vaikunta Ekadasi

Sri Swamiji_chinmudraThis series chronicles interesting experiences recounted by the devotees of HH Maharanyam Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji as well as certain divine experiences of Sri Swamiji himself. These articles are translations from the series “Madhuramaana Mahaneeyar” that is published every month in Madhuramurali Tamil monthly magazine in India.

Vaikunta Ekadasi was on 8th January this year. For us, this day may mean a simple visit to a temple. But Mahans get immersed in deep thoughts of the Lord and their bhava takes a different manifestation each time.
