"Nama Dwaar" is an initiative undertaken by the devotees of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu Nama Bhiksha Kendra, with the blessings of His Holiness Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji, aimed at propagation of Nama Sankirtan of the Maha Mantra as the universal means of bringing about peace, prosperity and the feeling of universal brotherhood and providing material and spiritual upliftment to humanity at large.
Based on the rock-solid foundation of the Vedas, the goal of this movement is to reach the people in every corner of the world and make them realize the value in chanting the divine Name of God for happiness, peace and prosperity.
In today's world, man is plagued with so many problems. His complaints of pain sorrow and misery is endless and all his time is spent in earning his bread and overcoming problems, which leaves not even one peaceful moment for quiet contemplation – contemplation on mental peace; contemplation on true happiness - leave alone time for meditation and Yoga.
Being eternal and apt for all ages, our Sanathana Dharma prescribes a path for the modern day man -- the path of Bhakti to Sri Krishna-- through the easy path of Nama Kirtan. All our scriptures strongly proclaim that in this Age of Kali, Nama Kirtan is the only way to attain God.
It is with this premise that Nama Dwaar is founded, the sole aim of it being propagation of devotion to God by singing His Holy Name through the chanting of the Maha Mantra,
“ Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare ”
Under the direction and with the blessings of Sri Sri Swamiji, the Satsang team promotes singing of the Maha Mantra at homes and other common places at regular intervals, as a routine, and also as a remedy for ills and sorrows that one undergoes.
The main aim of Nama Dwaar is to ensure that Nama reaches every one on this planet, irrespective of age, location, gender, religion, caste, creed and social status, thereby helping them attain happiness in their worldly life, as well as get liberated and attain the eternal bliss of communion with God. It is our ideal that the divine name of the Lord reverberate in every corner of the world.
Chaitanya Mahaprabhu Nama Bhiksha Kendra, started with the blessings of Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji, has been actively propagating the chanting of the Hare Rama Maha Mantra for the past 7 years. As of today, more than 350 Nama Kendras (centers where Maha Mantra Kirtan is performed as a Satsang on a weekly basis) exist all around the globe.
In addition to organizing the regular chanting of the Maha Mantra through the Nama Kendras, Nama Dwaar also organizes public Maha Mantra Kirtan events and Nama Satsang functions from time to time. These include Akhanda Nama Kirtan events, Nagara Sankirtans in towns and villages, Satsang events in schools, Self-improvement and Satsang workshops in business organizations, public Nama Kirtan Prayer meetings, Satsangs in slums and for downtrodden masses etc.
It is Sri Sri Swamiji's desire that if people cannot come up to do Nama Kirtan, we take Nama Kirtan to the people. This verily is the motto of Nama Dwaar and the Satsang members visit various villages and towns spreading the glory of the divine name and its power. “Special Nama Prayers” are also conducted on specific request towards the resolution of specific problems.
