10 Jan Satsang : Doorway to the Divine
In everyone’s life there comes a time when one has experienced all material comforts and still the heart is not satisfied and is looking for something or one has not experienced much and always longing for something we do not have, in either case the only solution is satsang and nama sankeertan. There is only one place in this eternal world where you will feel complete and blissful, that is in GOD’s abode and one of the ways to reach HIM is through satsang.
What do our scriptures say?
If we take a look closely , we can see that our scriptures and Puranas have time and again spoken about the importance of satsang. Parikshit, son of Abhimanyu, due to a curse had only 7 days left for his last breadth on earth. When we went looking for the most important thing to do that would complete his life, he was asked to be in the satsang of sages who gave him the BHAGAVATHAM which made his life fruitful. It is said that Lord Rama HIMSELF would always be seen in the satsang of sages when HE was not attending to HIS kingly duties. Sugreeva got his kingdom and family back due to his satsang with Lord Rama. Vibheeshana got the kingdom and his country back due to his satsang. Lord Rama was even ready to pardon Ravana and give his life and kingdom back, if he realizes that eternal Truth and the bliss of satsang.
Lord Krishna’s most memorable time has been with HIS gopikas and gopas. In Krishna avatar, HE showed us that MASTER of the UNIVERSE will be at your beck and call and will bind HIMSELF to HIS devotees if you love HIM unconditionally. Why else would HE let Yashoda bind HIM, or let gopikas call HIM “MAKKAN CHOR” or “RANN CHOD”? Why would HE break HIS own promise to not lift weapons in the war and hence make Bheeshma’s words come true? Krishna showed us , HE would do anything for his devotees and Radha Rani teaches us how to love HIM unconditionally. The only way to learn to love the Lord is through satsang. Prahlada proved that the Lord’s Name is much more powerful than Lord HIMSELF, and that HE is bound to HIS names. HE will be in the heart of those who realize it. Not everyone is a Dhruva or Prahalada, who at the tender of age of 5, knowing that they will utlimately reach GOD’s abode, chose to live their life on earth because they knew the importance of satsang and sankeertan.
How does tha magic of His Holiness Shree Kripaluji Maharaj’s Kirtans work?
One of the easiest way to get introduced to satsangs and be in the company of Radha krishna is to attend the weekly Sastsang and monthly Akand Kirtan conducted by Radha Krishna temple of Dallas. The kirtans of Shree Kripaluji Maharaj sung beautifully will act as hand holders in the path and will definitely make you fall in love with Radha Krishna. If you are already in love with THEM, then it will help you live with THEM for those 2 hours and beyond. Just like how a mother teaches and aides her baby to take the first few steps in the baby’s life and holds her hand throughout, the same way Shree Maharajji’s kirtans will help you fall in love with Radha and Krishna effortlessly and will make sure the Lord lives in your heart everyday. Just like how hunger should be satisfied with food at a regular interval, the soul also needs nourishment regularly through satsang, only then it will be calm and channelized towards the right causes. Both the mind and body can be nourished with the right nutrient at our Radha Krishna temple of Dallas.
