Kripa Karo Mere Ram Kripa Karo
Mere Ram Tujhe Main Kaise Janoo, Kaise Pehchanoo
Na Tu Dikhta Hai, Na Tu Bolta Hai
Par Tere Naam Ka Gun-Gaaan To Teeno Lok Main Hota Hai
Suna Hai Aise Maine, Par Sunane Se Balak Santusht Nahin Hota Hai
Santo Ne Tere Naam Ki Mahima Gayee Hai
Sadguru Ne Tera Naam-Daan Diya Yeh Unki Badai Hai
Issi ko Sambhavta Prem Kahte Hain
Balak To Ma Ki Gaud Main Prem Paate Hain
Ma Apni Gaud Main Bitha Kar Krip-Rupi Dudh Pila
Iss Dudh-Muhe Balak Ko
Apni Prem Bhari Aankhon Se Nihar Mujhe
Tujhe Bhi Aise Hi Niharoon Yeh Sikha Mujhe
Mere Ram Kripa Karo Aisi Kripa Karo
Being humble is not easy, but look at the benefits of what we can get if we do. We have heard this message over and over and Pujya Maharajji also mentions this in his pravachan:
Tu jhuk ke chalya kar, ki jhukya nu Ram milde.
Water does not rest in high places, but only in the low
but if pride prevents you from bending, you will go thirsty (Source: http://www.Kabir.Ca)
If we want to bathe in the Ganga of Ram Naam, it is important for us to be humble. Where can we learn to be humble … only from those who are – such as our loving Gurujans and other Saints.

This message was loud and clear about not using force with loved ones while reading this morning in Valmiki Ramayan Saar by Shree Swami Satyanand Ji Maharaj.
Kaushalya (Ram’s mother) and Laxman are upset about Prince Ram having to go to live like an ascetic in a jungle instead of being crowned as a king. Laxman suggests using force and giving Ram his right to the kingdom. Ram replies it is not the fault of my mother Kakeyi or my father Dashrath (he is simply keeping his promise given to Kakeyi) and we should not use force with family members. Family members are our loved ones and they should be loved and respected. Ram happily accepts Kakeyi’s wish and as always treats her like his mother Kaushalaya.
There is so much we can learn from the life of Ram. Applying what we learn at least one thing a day and then extending it for a week, for a month, and then for the rest of our life is suggested in their discourses and advice given by our loving gurus and teachers – Swami Ji Maharaj, Shree Prem JI Maharaj, and Pujya Dr. Vishwa Mitter Ji Maharaj.
How lucky and blessed are we for having such a heritage, culture, and most of all having loving Sant and Mahatmas (Saints and Great souls) in our lives who have blessed us with Ram Naam.
