Krishnamruta Maharnava – XXVIII

  • Sloka 271: Even the biggest sinner should approach a Vaishnava and request him for the food offered to Lord Vishnu in his home. If food is not available,  he should at least drink water (from the Vaishnava’s home)
  • Sloka 272: In order to cleanse oneself from all the sins, one should go to the home of a Vishnu devotee, offer respects to him devoutly and request for food that has been offered to the Lord
  • Sloka 273 and 274: A true Vaishnava is one who takes bath according to the rituals prescribed, performs Anga-nyasa, Mudra-nyasa, remembers the name of the Rishi, Chandas and Devata, chants the best mantras of Narayana Ashtakshara and Vasudeva Dwadashakshara and maintains the Vaishnava Deeksha always. One who sees such a Vaishnava, even if he is carrying the sins of Brahma Hatya, will be rid of all the sins. The Vaishnava himself will become sin free as well!
  • Sloka 275: One who is an ingrate; One who has killed cows; One who finds faults in the Vedas; One who has committed all sins; Even such people will be pure upon contact with Gopi Chandana
  • Sloka 276: If one donates even a small piece of Chandana, that has been touched by Gopis, to brahmins, seven generations of such a person will become free from sins!
  • Sloka 277: One should not offer any alms, not even a drop of water, to a person who is not a devotee of Vishnu. To a brahmin who has the Chakra and Shankha signs on his body, one should donate even the Havis given to Devatas and the Kravya offered to Pitrus
  • Sloka 278: Vyasa said:: While chanting the mantra “Tad Vishnoh paramam padam”, on the right shoulder, one should wear the mark of the Sudarshana (Chakra) and on the left shoulder, one should bear the mark of the Shankha
  • Sloka 279: A brahmin who has the Yagnopavita should tie his ‘Shikha’ and bear the marks of Shankha and Chakra at the base of his shoulders. So says the Shruti “Pavitram Te Vitatam…”
  • Sloka 280: Rudra said:: Those who have devotion towards Lord Hari should wear the marks of the five weapons viz Shankha, Chakra, Gada, Padma and Narayana using Gopi Chandana. The marks of each of the five weapons should be borne separately on the forehead, head, heart and shoulders
