View Full Version : Narada Jayanti

16 May 2011, 08:02 PM
Namasté, all.

The day after Vaisakha Purnima is the birth-anniversary of the delightful wandering sage Nārada. (That means a May 17th start date here in Canada, May 18th in India.)

No story seems complete without Nārada's narration, and his reputation for mischief and troublemaking seems a playful veneer masking a deeper truth: that the leela of this world is hard to fathom, and that actions which seem inexplicable may be for the universe's good after all! Yajvan has reminded us in several posts of the Bhāgavatam's words: that only twelve men fully comprehend the subtle complexities of dharma, and Nārada Muni is one of these.

His devotion to Lord Nārāyaṇa is glorious; his own example, as well as his teachings on bhakti, are a guiding light to everyone seeking to grow closer to God through devotion. I read that Nārada Jayanti is honoured via the scheduling of meetings and various intellectual endeavours, but perhaps an equally respected activity on this day would be meditation, and loving service - to God and/or to others, reaching out a helping hand in this world as Nārada himself does so many times.

Sage Narada is Vicar and representative of Vishnu, nothing is complete without him, he is the most intelligent sage. Movie and TV serial makers are representing him as a clown thus making an insult to him.

We should celebrate Narada Jayanti in satvik manner, this is a simple way to respect Naradji and gain his blessings.
