The Powers of the Holy Names

I read an interesting event that took place in Srila Gurudeva’s life when he was a police inspector. At that time an important file went missing. All of Srila Gurudeva’s colleagues were anxiously looking for it. With all the commotion going around him, Srila Gurudeva was calmly chanting his rounds. One of his colleagues asked him whether he was anxious at all. It was a file containing an important case, you know. Srila Gurudeva calmly replied, “No.” As soon as he finished his rounds, Srila Gurudeva got up and went straight to a particular shelf that contained the file!

Amazing lila that teaches us the power of the holy names!

Srila Gurudeva’s lila reminded me of one such incident that happened not too long ago.

When Syamarani didi was staying in my house her computer used to go bonkers almost always. Her assistant would rave and rant about this, because they are doing such important seva sending out all the Hari-katha to everyone around the world.
Syamarani didi would give her a knowing smile and said, “OK, let’s chant for awhile.” And you know what, everything then worked out wonderfully.
There is so much potency in chanting of the holy names. Hopefully one day I may realize all these truths.

All glories to Srila Gurudeva and the Vaishnavas and Vaishnavis!!!!
