Namasankeerthanam & Divine Weddings
Nama Japam or Nama Sankeertanam is the japa or sankirtana of nama (name) of the divine. The devotee chooses Ishta devata literally “cherished divinity” and picks up a name of the Ishta deva to repeatedly chant the name vocally or in the mind any time, anywhere. Devotees can form a group and do sankeertanam or singing together of name of the divinity. Namasankeerthanam is simplest and very effective way of worship in Kaliyuga.
An important aspect of Namasankeerthanam is the Devotional festivity (Utsava Sampradaya) under which one celebrates Divine Weddings of the deities such as Radha Kalayanam, Sita Kalayanam, Andal Kalyanam, Tulasi Vivaha, etc.
In this talk, Kumbakonam Ananthanarayana Bhagavathar will shed light on both Nama-Sankeerthanam and the celebration of divine weddings.
