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, the Most Pure, our 

character is purified; we are transformed from 

unconscious, inconsiderate, devilish, brutes, to compassionate, 

loving, understanding, and forgiving human 

beings.



As the character is purified, we comprehend the nature of 

the illusory energy, how we fell into it, and how to get out of it.  

We get out of  it, the illusory energy, Maya,  by fixing the mind on 

You, the Source all knowers and the Best Knower of all.



We fix  the mind on You by always thinking of You.  We do this 

by always thinking of You and becoming Your devotee.  We are 

devoted to You by offering everything to You:  All that we think, 

feel, will, say, and do, we do it as an offering to You; we do all as 

an offering to You. This is the way, we always ways think of You, 

and our Divine Character is unfolded. 


 The more our Divine Character is unfolded, the more we think of 

You and become devoted to You.  The greater our devotion to 

You, the more we offer all to You.  This in turn helps us  fix our 

mind on You.  Gradually, we worship You more and we we 

are attracted back to You.  Certainly, You, our Supreme 

Being,  are always here, now, in this present moment.




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:  Reaping and sewing. We 

can never thank You enough for sending us constant reminders, in 

so many different ways, telling  us to repeat, repeat, repeat, aloud, 

silently or as the breath comes, goes or holds, Your Holy Names. 

This helps us in  our efforts to purify our consciousness of lust, 

anger, and greed.  Those are the brigands that hinder our 

conscious union with You


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. It is the constant remembrance of 

You that purifies our  character/consciousness and raises us out of 

more or less hell.  As this happens, we are reestablished us in 

our original position of  conscious union with You.

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 we 

associate with You, the Most Pure.  Our consciousness is purified 

the more we associate with You. 
 

Our original, Divine Virtuousness naturally manifests through our 

behavior the more our consciousness is purified by the Divine 

Virtue of  Your association.  Through Your association our Pineal 

Gland is  decalcified.  The more this happens, the greater we 

experience Your Divine Consciousness flowing through our being.


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.  Surely, You are this One, 

the Eternal, Changeless One, who is and lives as

our Eternal Spirit, the Supreme Being of  all, throughout the 

universe and beyond.  Inspired by You, it is to You alone we bring 

these humble offerings of praise and thanks giving.


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 middle, 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.
