Cherished Memoirs 43

Worship the Totality!

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.
Once, Bengaluru was going through an unusually dry season. Sri Swamiji said, “Everyone is doing something to bring down the rains. The meteorological department is taking some steps in this direction. Cloud seeding is being planned. All are trying various means. The efforts are in different directions. Do you know what I am going to do? I am going to do what I know best. Let us all also do our best.”

Madhura Geetam – Prayer Series: 17

How do I ask, O Radhe?

PrayerIn this series, we present, each month, a prayer kirtan composed by His Holiness Maharanyam Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji. These kirtans underline the importance of prayers and beautifully show us how we should pray.


This is the last song in the Prayer series. Mahans have composed the divine compositions to show us how to pray. We do not know what to pray for and how to pray. Just for a second, let us imagine that the Lord comes and stands in front of us. Do we know what to ask for?
