Aim of Life by Sri Sitaramdas Omkarnath

If there was no darkness, no one would seek for the moon. If there
was
no cold, no one would have welcomed the spring. If there was no
storm,
no one would have appreciated the cool, mild breeze of the
spring. If
there was no sorrow or pain, no one would have uttered the name
of
God.
One day you have perforce to abandon your wealth, honor,
knowledge,
pride, good looks, youth, learning, fame and renown and be
consigned
to the burning flames or be eaten by dogs or jackals. This end will
overtake you as certainly as night overcomes day. When one day
you
have to give up all these due to the play of Kaal (time), then why
do
you not tear off this bondage of ignorance? There is yet time and
the
means to do it.

iti sodashakam namnam / kali-kalmasa-nashanam

The above mantra consisting of 32 words and 16 syllables is the


only
means by which to counter-act the evils of Kali-yuga. After having
looked through all the Vedas we find nothing more sublime in this
age
than the chanting of the Hare Krishna mantra."
(Kali-santarana Upanishad)

That God exists, there is no doubt,


Whoever takes shelter with Him has no more fears.
I have taken refuge at your feet
This is the Maha-Mantra; the essence of all Mantras.
Fear not, fear not, Oh son of Amrita,
God has kept you in His bosom.

All your troubles will vanish


Sing loudly, Jai Bhagawan Jai
Let that song play in air and sky.
Has anyone tried to find the sun by lighting lamp?

Similarly God exists in this world in every form.


He is the Naamee who is playing about in form of Naam
Sing Naam without a pause, and all your troubles will vanish.
-Sri Sitaramdas Omkarnath
