Why not take to Mahamantra alone and do it in an intense manner with complete faith, instead of confusing yourself with a multitude of practices?

I sincerely chant the Mahamantra daily for the past 6 months. Kindly tell me which are the Dasakams in Narayaneeyam to be recited which will remove the lustful thoughts, arrogance and worries?

 

Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji:

 

We see that, prior to exams, some students have a number of books open in front of them and read a paragraph from one book and switch to another in quick succession. Eventually, then draw a blank when it comes to results because they have not studied any particular subject in enough depth.

 

This is true in spirituality too. We undertake a variety of different spiritual practices, chant a series of Mantras, perform a lengthy list of rites and rituals. And we do all of them for namesake – with little faith and sincerity.

 

In my opinion, it is the intensity and sincerity with which you perform the spiritual practice that is more significant, than what practice you undertake.

 

Mahamantra Kirtan has been prescribed as a simple and straightforward means of achieving everything. So why not take to that alone and do it in an intense manner with complete faith, instead of confusing yourself with a multitude of practices?

 

Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :

 

Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare 
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
