Thank You Aum. Thank You Bha. Thank You Gye Nyame.
Thank You Aum. Thank You Bha. Thank You Gayathri.
Thank You for revealing to us how to experience
Your Omnipresence by constantly chanting Your
Holy Names. This is one of our spiritual tools which
helps us remember You while protecting, purifying,
and expanding our consciousness, awareness, and
We chant Your Holy Names thinking of
You as the Supreme Being of our greatest
understanding, the Source of Infinite Peace.
We chant Your Holy Names and gradually
experience You as within and beyond over
and under, inner and outer, illusion and reality,
and all other dualities.
We, who we worship You by constantly chanting
Your Holy Names, remember that You are
Infinite Divinity, within and beyond all names,
forms, and personalities.
This spiritual practice of chanting Your Holy
names and remembering You helps to transform
us. With this remembrance we evolve out of the
states of material, mental, intellectual, egoistic
and spiritual suffering. Gradually, we reawaken
to the tranquil beauty of the Self.
The more we chant Your Holy Names, the more
we see how to use them to ward off wicked thoughts
while purifying our consciousness, awareness, and
Through the ages, souls such as we have chanted
Your Holy Names and made spiritual progress to the
Self. While chanting Your Holy Names, our consciousness
is quieted of unedifying thoughts.
As we advance in our chanting of Your Holy Names,
They quiet the consciousness of all thoughts. The
consciousness becomes quiet and still, free from
thoughts. At this stage of our spiritual development,
we experience the tranquil joy of Everlasting
Omnipresent Peace, emanating from the region of
the Seventh Chakra.
The Seventh Chakra, also known as the Sahasrara
and Crown Chakra, is located near the center of
the head almost directly above the Pineal Gland.
This is the exit to Infinite Consciousness,
Awareness, and Intelligence, first seen for some,
as a huge lavender colored Lotus flower within
inner consciousness and awareness.
This Pineal Gland, according to our research,
observation, and experience, is the seat of
awareness in the body, and the gateway to the
Crown Chakra. The exit to the Core of us all,
The Eternal, Omnipresent, Omnipotent, Infinite
Consciousness, Awareness, and Intelligence, is
this Crown Chakra.
We chant Your Holy Names from the Sahasrara
by being aware of space, the screen of consciousness;
air coming in and out of the nostrils, the sound of
Silence; being aware the rising and falling of the
air in the chest, by being aware of consciousness,
being aware of Awareness Its Self, and being
cognizant as Intelligence, pervading and
transcending consciousness and awareness.
When Exercising or practicing chanting Your Holy
Names in one of the above ways, it is very difficult,
if not impossible for thoughts to enter our
awareness, grow in our consciousness, and
overwhelm our ordinary intelligence.
When we "Drop" our guard, and thoughts do come
on the screen of consciousness, consciousness is
mistakenly called "Mind." In reality, there is no
"Mind." There are only thoughts inside of
Awareness, on the screen of consciousness.
The more the consciousness is quiet and
thoughtless, the greater our experience of
the beauty of Everlasting, Omnipresent Peace.
This is our original, natural state of Consciousness,
Awareness, and Intelligence.
Always chanting Your Holy Names and thinking of
You is remembering You, the Most Pure. This is one
of the spiritual practices we are using to experience
knowledge of Self as Eternal, Pure Intelligence, above
consciousness, awareness, and ordinary intelligence
We chant Your Holy Names and think of You as The
Supreme Absolute, Here, Now, within and beyond the
illusions of space and time.
In ignorance we think of You as name, form or
personality. Many of us began experiencing Your Eternal,
Omnipresent Peace, by chanting Your Holy Names. Then
we experience the fact that this Peace of Yours is beyond
understanding, while pervading it. Name, form, boundaries
personalities, are meaningless in the Eternal Light of Your
Your Holy Name keeps our consciousness still and
quiet while enlightening us from the illusions of
forms, boundaries, and personalities.
In Enlightened Intelligence, we know You are
within and beyond living and nonliving, and You
are within and beyond the temporary Cosmic
Manifestations of names, forms, boundaries, and
