Importance and Meaning of Japa Series: 9

Posted by kathavarta on June 10, 2011

Japa Meditation is one of the best techniques of meditation you can practice daily to ease negative karma and sin. The reason it is so effective is because Japa focuses your attention on the Divine, the very source of your true self.

Japa meditation is the chanting of a repetitive saying or mantra associated with God.

This form of meditation is widely used by practitioners of all religious faiths by focusing on and repeating the name of their chosen deity, or by chanting a saying or prayer to their deity.

It is also used by spiritual aspirants who have evolved to the awareness that the Spiritual Masters who taught the truth are beyond religion. Spiritual is Spiritual, not religious.

You don’t have to be Hindu to believe in Lord Krishna, nor Buddhist to believe in Lord Buddha, nor Christian to believe in Lord Jesus Christ. Their teachings of spiritual reality and truth are beyond religion.

To practice this method you must simply chant a mantra or saying repetitively with devotion and surrender.

The human mind is limited by the ego. It is widely accepted that we cannot perceive reality. Everyone perceives their own reality based on the programs and influences that one has been exposed to throughout their lives. This is the grand illusion.

Aligning yourself with the powerful energy of God, by whatever name, or by one of the human Avatars of God, you will gain control of your mind, purify your spirit, and raise your level of consciousness.

The Power of God is infinite, and it is the source of all true love, joy, and happiness. God is also the source of Salvation, Liberation, Illumination, and Enlightenment.

Chants may be said out loud or within the mind. Thoughts are things, and God sees and hears all.

Japa may also be practiced at any time by merely chanting the mantra silently during daily activities. After a while the mantra will continue on its own in the back of your mind and you will be continually in a state of peace and protection. Your soul will remain pure as God is constantly held in mind.
