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 someone.
By chanting with the middle finger you get all perfection, love of God.
By chanting with the ring finger you get good health.
By chanting with the pinky or small finger you get mystic powers.
Has anyone else heard this class? If anyone knows which class this is, please let me know.
Thank you very much for kindly reading this prabhun!
