As we prepare for global Akhanda-Bhajan what should you and I pay attention to? Bhagawan lovingly reminds us today.
Embodiments of Love! Only when we realise the preciousness of the diamond will we take care to safeguard it. Likewise only when we are aware of the value of chanting the Lord’s name will we make the effort to practise it and benefit from it. Not all realise the potency and efficacy of reciting the Lord’s name. The first requisite is the purity of thought, word and deed. The name that is uttered by the tongue should be meditated upon by the mind. What is uttered and dwelt upon should be hailed by clapping the hands. This threefold concentration on the Divine name – unity of mind, speech and action – purifies the heart and nourishes the feeling of devotion. Better than recounting the qualities of the Lord, singing His glories or relating His exploits and teachings, the chanting of the name is supremely edifying.
