As the mahatmas say nama mahima is described in the sastras 'sruti smriti purAnEsu rama nama prakeerthitham tannAmakirtanam bhUyah tApatraya vinAsanam' as told in the chyavana smriti and leads one to deliverance. We have the divine name and we have the tongue to say it, so where is the fear says Sri Bodendra Swamigal. Namakeerthanam is the easiest, most suitable way and will yield the greatest benefits. Ramarajyam is not far we only have to constantly chant nama and make all others chant as well everywhere! ~ Guruji

Nama Siddhanta

Sri Bhagavannama Bodhendra Saraswati was born in Mandana Misra Agraharam at Kanchi as the son of one Kesava Panduranga. Bhoddendra's former name was Purushottama. It was he who stressed the efficacy of devotion as a means to liberation in Kali. He therefore undertook the great task of Nama Siddhanta, or establishing the supreme efficacy of reciting the names of Bhagavan in many of his writings, chiefly in Namamrta Rasayana and Namamrta Rasodaya. His mission of Nama Siddhanta was pursued with equal vigor by Sridhara Venkatesa, or Ayyaval of Tiruvisainallur and by Sadguru Swami of Marudanallur. It was the Nama Siddhanta of Bodhendra that was ultimately responsible for the evolution of Bhajana Sampradaya as an institution in the religious life of the Hindu community in South India. Sri Bodhendra performed Tatanka Pratistha at Jambukeswaram and while returning to Kanchi he attained videha mukti at Govindapuram on Full Moon day in the month of Proshtapada of the cyclic year Prajotpatti (1692 AD). It is said the spiritual presence of Bodhendra still abides at his Adhisthana at Govindapuram. It is said that in the calm silence of the night a melodious voice uttering Rama Nama is heard rising from subdued tones to a crescendo, and then fading into silence again. Sri Sri Sri Marudhanallur Sadguru Swamigal actually codified the Dakshina Sampradaya Bhajans by collecting from various sources, places and formed the paddathi. Later on many Great Bhagavathas from Thanjavur and Pudukottai district gave better shape to it. The Most important among many others who were responsible for this was Pudukottai Sri Gopalakrishna Satguru Swamigal.
