Excerpts from “GLORY OF THE NAME” by Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

 

It is always better to repeat or chant only one Name as a spiritual discipline. For contemplation on Saguna aspect, only one form of the Lord, in that too only one particular posture or still better to focus on any one part of the image of the Lord is recommended. All this is to narrow down the field of concentration to a finer point. It is a great joy to sing Kirtan, but singing or repeating one Name continuously is most efficacious. If the meaning of Kirtan is not understood, the mind has no Bhava. To get absorbed merely in Raga and Taala of Kirtan is pointless for a seeker. Repetition of a single Name continuously is at once Dhyana, Yoga, Tapas and also illumination.

 

Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :

 

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