Divine Remembrance


God’s name purifies the heart and mind, awakening love and longing for the Divine. The Divine Name can be sweetly rotating in your mind at all times, even amidst worldly duties. You should not wait until you have leisure for spiritual practice, for there is no guarantee that your free time will be spent in sadhana or that your spiritual hunger will increase. So now, while you have the desire for God, try to remember Him at all times. When you notice that you have forgotten, simply start the name and remembrance again. But do not feel bad about your lapse, rather rejoice in your remembrance! For the Lord says in the Bhagavad Gita that He is the source of both our forgetfulness and remembrance. What is required is our willing attention.
