Dr. Gautam has unveiled the capability and mightiness hidden
beneath it to bestow not only immortality on simple chanting of Amritvani,
but also several other attainments written in-between the lines.
The very first glimpse of it gives the impression that it is
not a document but a monument structured by Gautam.
Amritvani is the
eternal vani/voice of
love, devotion, knowledge and strength.
If Amritvani is to be described in one word, it is Satchitanand:
truth, knowledge and bliss.
While decoding the hidden philosophy lying beneath the
beautiful verses of “eternal words” of Param Pujya Swami
Satyanand ji Maharaj, Dr. Gautam Chatterjee has very successfully
been able to endorse that Amritvani
is not only the healer of all ills but also the greatest religious
text to beget bliss. Reading,
chanting and dwelling upon the stanzas containing noble and
elevating thoughts in Amritvani
help very much to prepare our minds for Japa and meditation.
Every true sadhak
must develop a prayerful attitude.
Amritvani as a heavenly hymn is the eternal companion of us on which
we can unfailingly depend at every stage of life.
Whenever we feel weak, Ram Naam is the ready source of
strength and inspiration. In
time of severe trials and tribulations, turmoil, weak moments and
during sickness, which no human being can altogether avoid or
escape, Ram Naam is the sure panacea or remedy for all kind of
ailments and woes. We
should also chant Amritvani or Ram Naam during our happy times to express our love,
gratitude and devotion to Him and reflect the same in all the beings
who are around us they are none but embodiment of the Lord Himself.
Lord’s name is our friend or sakha
during rainy days and He is our fair weather companion as well.
None can step ahead without Him.
He is our spiritual friend, philosopher and guide.
As we are the followers of Bhakti
or Prem Marg, singing
the glories of almighty is our primary method.
Remembering Him as all loving, benevolent and blissful Sri
Ram with love and dedication can lift the devotee to the highest
stage of bliss and ecstasy, indeed even to the highest level of
fraction of time contains wisdom.
We should not only verbally recite Amritvani
but also internalize it as an applied sacredness in our daily
teaches us that “depth of spiritual experience can be reached by
Japa of the sacred name”. To
simply experience the blissful peace and joy of consciousness of
God’s presence, a sadhak
can start with Japa that slightly sounds like a whisper.
Later it will refine itself into an echoing repetition
silently in the mind in an involuntary manner.
As a result of continuous practice of chanting the mantra,
the mind becomes steady and concentrated and finally we feel the
presence of God. Then
there will be no limitation of consciousness of time and space.
The constant practice of Japa in this method will surely
bring eternal peace, bliss and salvation.
Dr. Gautam Chatterjee’s endeavour to fathom the oceanic
depth of Amritvani,
remains a lifetime effort which transforms these writings into a
monumental work. It
will surely inspire one and all and motivate everybody to chant Ram
Naam and live their lives more meaningfully.
To get the taste of what is in store in this book, I would
like to quote Gautam’s own words which reveal how Ram Naam is Mangal

May this spiritual picture of Amritvani,
as drawn by Gautam be found interesting, instructive, illuminative
and invaluable in understanding the glory of Ram Naam.
