One must not waste breath uselessly: whenever one has nothing special to do one should silently practise japa in rhythm with one’s breathing — in fact this exercise should go on continually until doing japa has become as natural as breathing.

Anandamayi Ma

 

Silent japa should be engaged in at all times. One must not waste breath uselessly: whenever one has nothing special to do one should silently practise japa in rhythm with one’s breathing — in fact this exercise should go on continually until doing japa has become as natural as breathing.

 

It is of great value to read sacred texts and books of wisdom. Speak the truth. Bear in mind that God’s Name is He Himself in one form; let it be your inseparable companion. Try your utmost never to remain without Him. The more intense and continuous your efforts to dwell in His Presence, the greater will be the likelihood of your growing joyful and serene. When your mind becomes vacant, endeavour to fill it with the awareness of God and His contemplation.

 

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

 

As your heart beats as you sleep, dream or being awake let your tongue always Chant the Divine Names of Hari.

 

If you become that anxious on forgetting to chant the Divine Name even for a second, then you are blessed.

 

One should constantly repeat the names of God irrespective of any activity that he might be involved in

 

We should Chant and remember the Divine Name every breath we intake and we need not try to do anything else.

 

kalakshebo na kartavyah, kshenamaayuh kshane kshane, yamasya karuna naasti, kartavyam hari kirtanam.

 

Every moment of your life should be taken as His gift.  Be rest assured that every incident that happens is by His grace and happens for your well-being.

 

Guru Nanak felt that it would be improper to postpone Nama Smarana or remembering the Name of the Lord, even by a single breath

 

The thought that seize out one's mind for life long period would surely, strongly surface during the last breath

 

That unshakable faith in Rama Nama remained with him till his last breath.

 

The human body is a rare boon to embodied souls and that too is very transient (momentary, short-lived, temporary)

 

Your last breath should ensure that this is your last birth

 

The thought that seize out one's mind for life long period would surely, strongly surface during the last breath. Likewise we ourselves can have a test to determine whether it's possible to have an active remembrance of the lord when our soul departs the body.

 

Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :

 

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