Chanting 12



Knowledge of  'self''  is the highest, the greatest education.  The 


more we gain knowledge of You by always thinking of You, the 


greater is our knowledge of our self.  This greatest knowledge, 


knowledge of self, has the transformational power to change us 


from selfish brutes to compassionate selfless human beings.



  As more knowledge of self is acquired, we move on higher, from 


compassionate, selfless, loving, and wise human beings, back 


to our Divine Nature.  This conscious reunion with You, from 


whom we can never truly be separated, is the real goal of 


knowledge and the greatest aim and gain of life.



True knowledge of Self brings in its wake self control.  Self 

control is accomplished by always thinking of You.  By keeping 

the mind concentrated on You, the consciousness aligns with Your 

will, the way of Peace.  The more this happens, the ego, intellect, 

mind, and body comes under Your  control.  


Thus, through fixing the mind on You we are transformed from 

unconscious, inconsiderate, devilish, brutes, to compassionate, 

loving, understanding, and forgiving understanding human 

beings.  




Moreover, real knowledge of self, knowledge and experience that 

we are not a body with a soul but the soul is the self, brings us 

back into conscious union with You, our original Divine Nature.

  This is to us the best aim of life and the true goal of Yoga.  


In the process of  reclaiming our vision and returning to Divine 

Consciousness, comes the  realization that "Others" or "Them" are 

really reflections of  Supreme Being, just as we are. "They" 

is "Us".  You pervade and transcend everything and all things 

simultaneously while remaining One and the Same throughout 

the process.


Thanks be to Your Holy names for focusing us, centering us, and

guiding us in the right direction back to Your Eternal,

Omnipresent, Divine Love within all.  You are the One Divinity at

the Source of all the worlds. All praise to You. All praise to Your

Holy Names for helping us in our restoration of self to Self.

 

Thank You for showing us how to redeem ourselves and attain the


highest purpose of life by chanting Your Holy Names; this purifies


our consciousness and brings balance and harmony back into our


lives. This happens because chanting Your Holy Names fixes our


mind on You, the Most Pure, the Most Perfect, Infinite


Centeredness of all. 



Your cosmic Law is the Law of Karma. We can never thank You 

enough for sending us constant reminders, in so many different 

ways, to repeat, repeat, repeat, aloud, silently or as the breath 

comes, goes or holds, Your Holy Names. This purifies our 

consciousness. 


Surely, as the consciousness is purified as a consequence of 

chanting Your Holy Names, we realize that the "Here After" is 

always "Here Now".  Judgement day, is always here. It is the 

"Here" and "After". All praise is due to You alone. 




You are the Great Spirit, the Source of all, that pervades and 

transcends the Cosmic Manifestations. The closer we get to You, 

consciously, the more we transcend Karma, Judgement Day, 

and experience the Eternal, ecstatic bliss of You.


We do not need full faith, nor need our Love for You be fully

blossomed, nor need we be in a humble state of mine to repeat

Your Holy Names. The more we chant Your Holy Names our

consciousness is purified and the virtues naturally manifest in our

behavior.

Constantly chanting Your Holy Names and offering all activities to

You, we are gradually transformed, reborn as spirit, the original

incomparable one who is totally aware, the one who is and lives as

eternal spirit.
Chanting the Holy Names helps us to purify and keep the mind

steadfastly on You. Gradually, ignorance is effaced, and our

consciousness is cleansed of the polluted desires for sense

gratification. As we progress in this spiritual practice, we realize

that we, the Soul, always was, always is, and always will be free.

 
Chanting Your Holy names with each breath frees us from the sin

and bondage of ego consciousness. It does this by helping us

gradually still the mind and awaken to the realization that the self

is eternal, changeless spirit, pervading yet above, body, mind,

intellect, and ego.


You are the First, the last, the last, the Original Ancestor of all.  

Ever-increasing Spiritual Power comes in the wake of chanting 

Your Holy Names. The mind becomes more still, the 

consciousness quiets as we gradually awaken and realize You, the 

ultimate awareness and Supreme Self of all. 


Thanks be to Your Holy names and Your Great Silence, for 

focusing us, centering us, and guiding us in the right direction to 

You, the One Divinity of all the worlds. All praise to Your Holy 

Names and to Your Great Silence of which You are the Ultimate 

Observer.
 
Thank You for showing us how to redeem ourselves and attain the

highest purpose of life by chanting Your Holy Names; this purifies

our consciousness thus showing us that You, the Supreme Witness,

exist prior to, during, and after the Great Silence.



We can never thank You enough for sending us constant

reminders, in so many different ways, to repeat, repeat, repeat,

aloud, silently or as the breath comes, goes or holds, Your Holy

Names.

We do not need full faith, nor need our Love for You be fully


blossomed, nor need we be in a humble state of mine to repeat


Your Holy Names. The more we chant Your Holy names our


consciousness is purified and the great virtues naturally manifest in


our behavior.

Constantly chanting Your Holy Names and offering all activities to

You, we are gradually transformed, reborn as spirit, the original

Incomparable One who is totally aware, the One who is and lives

as Eternal Spirit within and beyond all.
