Krishna Das – Ep. 34 – Chanting is Planting, Meaning in Mantra, and Maharaji’s View


KD contends that any and all repetition of the Name is like planting a seed, no matter when or how it is done. This can be through chanting, singing, or just thinking to one’s self, “Ram,Ram,Ram.” Committing to a designated time for practice is ideal, but we have to work with what we’ve got. He explains that there are many mantras with many different meanings, but more important is the love and attention with which you offer your prayer. From the view of a great being, like Maharaji, everything is going to be alright, it’s just a matter of working through the process necessary to become a better human being.
