Namaalayam was instituted by Sri Guruji with the intent to help people live a peaceful life and guide them towards self-realization.
Namaalayam – Activities
Devata aradhana – worship of the divine
Why worship, one many ask? Answers are manifold – worship has the power to fulfil our wishes, grant our prayers and remove our difficulties. Over and above that, God ever stands ready to guide us throughout the journey of our life. Daiva-balam will help you overcome any kind of difficulty in life easily without getting disheartened.
Nama Japa and Parayana
Nama Japa – Nama Japa, the constant repetition of the Name of the Lord, is the best antidote to all ills of samsara. It is the most adoptable among all spiritual practices. It generates powerful vibrations that purifies and strengthens the reciter. It has been aptly hailed by our saints as the raft to cross the ocean of life. Among all spiritual practices, it is considered the most simple and easiest. Even ordinary people stand to benefit immensely from nama japa. It is not essential that one has to be spiritual.
Parayana – From ancient times, parayana (devout reading) of scriptures like Ramayana, Bhagavata, Narayaneeya, etc. have been recommended for specific and general well-being, and achievement of all goals. One of the aims of Namaalayam is to open out such benefits to all.
It is values which characterise a man and carry him along in his onward journey, worldly or spiritual. Technically called atma-gunas they are the essential part of one’s life and have to be consciously cultivated if one yearns for a peaceful, wholesome and successful life.
