Alone with the Holy Names by Mahatma das


Mahatma das: I happily and enthusiastically welcome the holy names every japa session.I easily chant my prescribed number of rounds with focus and attention.When I chant, I chant.I get to chant, I want to chant, and I love to chant.I treat the maha-mantra as Radha and Krsna, fully present in sound.I receive and feel Krsna’s presence, mercy and love in His holy names.I chant in full awareness that the holy name is my greatest treasure.I chant to please Radha and Krsna, not to gain anything material.I am out of my mind and in my heart, fully present to the holy names as I chant my rounds.I fully honour my sacred relationship with the holy names during japa.I chant to be accepted by Krsna, and to repair my broken relationship with Him.I chant from my heart, feelingly praying to come closer to Krsna.I meditate on the meaning of the names as I chant.I turn off my world and turn on Krsna’s world when I chant my rounds.I chant with no other motive than to render pure devotional service.My beads are my connection with Krsna and my ticket back to Godhead.I am totally dependent on guru and Krsna to chant quality japa.I organize my life to make japa the most important activity of my day.I relish chanting the holy names.
