Prabhata Rashmih - Austerity and Renunciation

Take to chanting as austerity: Swamiji's childhood practices

Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha

  • Take to chanting as austerity: Swamiji's childhood practices

    Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha

In this track, Swamiji shares with his listeners his own love for chanting Sanskrit hymns and shlokas. Right from childhood, the practice of chanting had a purifying and elevating effect on his mind.

Swamiji exhorts everyone to take to the austerity of chanting Vishnusahasranama or Bhagavad Gita. This austerity has its sublime and creative effect on the mind, whereby the mind goes on becoming purified. Various distractional thoughts are gone and their place is taken over by the recitation.

We come to understand from this talk that somehow we need to steal some time for recitation and build up the stock of austerity.

Shlokas chanted in the Track:

आयुर्नश्यति पश्यतां प्रतिदिनं याति क्षयं यौवनं
प्रत्यायान्ति गताः पुनर्नदिवसाः कालो जगद्भक्षकः ।
लक्ष्मीस्तोयतरङ्गभङ्गचपला विद्युच्चलं जीवितं
तस्मान्माम् शरणागतं शरणद त्वं रक्ष रक्षाधुनाम् ।।

Shivaaparadha Kshamapanartha stotram Verse 13

किं वानेन धनेन वाजिकरिभिः प्राप्तेन राज्येन किं
किं वा पुत्रकलत्रमित्रपशुभिर्देहेन गेहेन किम् ।
ज्ञात्वैतत्क्षणभङ्गुरं सपदि रे त्याज्यं मनो दूरतः
स्वात्मार्थं गुरुवाक्यतो भज मन श्रीपार्वतीवल्लभम् ।।
