Through japa, we control all thoughts and try to concentrate on a single thought.

Nama Article 17th May 2013

 

Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

 

An ordinary man (not a sădhak) thinks that he has only one thought at a time. But, it is not so. Innumerable thoughts keep rising up in him and they compete with each other to take hold. A particular thought takes hold and the person thinks that he has only this single thought in him. But, when we sit to do japa or ătma vichăra we find that countless thoughts keep raising one after another, in a gush. Through japa, we control all thoughts and try to concentrate on a single thought.

In the same way, when the mind imagines, it is called ‘manas’. When it thinks, it is called ‘intellect’. It is the same person who chants the Mantra as well as gets those thoughts.
