Lately i have been focussing a lot on my chanting having been convinced philosophically that there is no other way.
After repeatedly reading all of Srila Prabhupada's books it is not difficult to come to this conclusion.
Then this desire came to my mind that i wanted to experience what Namacarya Haridasa Thakura went through his daily routine of chanting 300,000 names of God every day.
Next day i started early about 1.00 Am and went through 70 rounds before being attacked by maya which made me stop my chant although I had about 12 hours to go.
I forgot my endeavor for some time before taking it up again by gradually increasing the chanting to 100 rounds.
Then on 19th Dec i was able to chant 180 rounds which is 311,040 names of Krsna.
I was trying to remember throughout what Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu said about chanting continuously. That one be more tolerant than a tree and more humble than a blade of grass.
Although i am not the above in the least, i felt glad all throughout the day.
I too wanted to check out what it feels like to chant 300000 names,and on two occasions in the past I have been able to do 192 rounds.Of course both these occasions were holidays.
My concern on both occasions was not on quality chanting like you but on completing the task at hand.Nonetheless it really felt good.
Hare KRsna Prabhuji,
Hari Hari. So nice to read this. So inspiring. I have been meaning to chant 192 rounds in one day, but have not been able to so far. Pls pray for me that one day I will be able to chant.
Dandvats to you and to Gaurav Prabhu.
I was wondering where you had disappeared - this is time very well spent.
if your heart didnt melt so far in tears, then you have to keep going every day.
mahamatra needs to come in the heart, not only ears,
otherwise heart wont be melted.
mind have to be focused on krishna or his pastimes or pastimes of his pure devotees.
thinking on something else from your life or occupying your mind on numbers of your chanting ,
will not help to achieve drop of transcendental bhakty nectar.
correct, hearts are like stones ,thats whay its not melting.
large quantity of mahamantra can do the job itself, but your mind need to be focused.
heart need to be soft for geting devotion .
all purpose or goal of chanting mahamantra is to get devotion for lord,
purification is just side product of chanting and is not goal.
mind is main player in devotional service,
thats why you need to think about him and his pasttimes when you doing devotional service.
keep going with chanting many rounds , but everyday, and you are going to be blessed soon.
Hare Krishna to all! It is very inspiring and encouraging to learn your wonderful achievements Zola and Gaurav Prabhus. Many of us will certainly be encouraged to follow your instances. Please bless us so that we can follow your path!
