Dear devotees, Please accept my humble obeisances.   All glories to Sri Guru and Gauranga! All glories to Srila Prabhupada!   I heard a lecture recording by His Holiness Jayapataka Maharaja.  During the question and answer session, a devotee asked why we chant japa with the middle finger.     Maharaja replied that he had been doing some research into this issue for a book, and had found a scriptural reference for this that is as follows:   By chanting with the first finger you can curse…
