Is chanting while doing work considered as meaningful chanting ? Since most of the days , I am continuously doing house chores one after the other, I don’t get time to sit and do ‘Japa’. But if we chant while doing house chores, does it have same effect ?

 

Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji:

 

Yes. It is definitely great. The Gopis did exactly that way.

 

Please check these: Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

 

Catch hold of this divine Name and go on doing your work in the world

 

One should always chant His name. Even while one is performing one's duties, the mind should be left with God.

 

Hanuman worked tirelessly for Rama. He also performed incessant Rama japa. We should also be like this.

 

Divine name is beyond all restrictions – परं संकीर्तनादेव राम रामेति मुच्यते

 

It is free from all constraints and procedures

 

If you are not able to perform Nama Sankirtan, at least listen to Nama Sankirtan

 

Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :

 

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