BENEFITS OF JAPA - By Swami Sivananda
Japa changes the mental substance from passion to purity. It calms and strengthens the mind. It makes the mind introspective. It checks the outgoing tendencies of the mind. It eradicates all kinds of evil thoughts and inclinations. It induces determination and austerity. Eventually it leads to the direct Darshan of God, the Ishta-devta or tutelary Deity or God-realization.
