Sadguru Nannagaru narrates verse 3 of Aksharamanamala

Entering (my) home and luring me (to Thine) why didst Thou keep me prisoner in Thy heart's cavern, Oh Arunachala?

Beauty of the video:
Bhagavan said: 'Oh! Arunachala, how come you entered into me, dragged me out and gave me a place within your heart? Oh! Arunachala, you have dragged me into your heart. All this happened without my knowledge and without subjecting me to any pain! What did I do that you have bestowed the immortal state upon me? Oh! Arunachala, I dont know why You have merged me within you. Though I don't deserve, you have done this to Me'. In this context Sri Nannagaru gives the below instance of Swami Vivekananda:Initially Narendra didnt visit Sri Ramakrishna very often. But Sri Ramakrishna knew the worth of Narendra. If any of Narendra's neighbours visited Sri Ramakrishna then he asked them: ' Please ask that boy Narendra ( the boy studying Intermediate) to visit me. These days he has stopped coming here'. Then the neighbours of Narendra said: ' Sir, you have a deep love for that boy. When the boy doesn't love you, why do you love him so intensely?' Sri Ramakrishna replied: ' Dont say that. Narendra belongs to Ishwarakoti. You dont know how good hearted, benevolent and humanitarian he is. You dont know how much he is going to yearn for the good of this mankind. He is Shivaamsha samboota ( incarnation of Shiva). So if you come across Narendra, do tell him that I would like to see him'. So what is the qualification of Narendra here? That wideness within the heart, that maturity within the intellect, that purity within the senses, that service attitude towards the fellow human beings-- made Guru Himself yearn for the sake of disciple. So when you really deserve ie (when you possess wideness of heart and matured intellect) Guru/God Himself comes to your door.
