Swami Papa Ramdas:
Ramdas for one found the repetition of God's Name the most efficacious means for stilling the mind. In the stillness of the mind, you realize that you are not the body but the omnipotent, omniscient, all pervading Spirit.
Constant repetition of God's Name will free the mind from all its dynamics and make it perfectly still and serene. In that serenity you realize that you are the Atman.
Sri Ramakrishna has said that a pure and still mind itself is Atman. Mind, when it is still, is not mind, everybody as the expression of Divinity seated in his own heart.
