BENEFITS OF JAPA - By Swami Sivananda
Nama Smarana is easy, comfort-giving and simple. It is therefore said that to be the 'Head', the 'King' of all Sadhanas.
When you repeat His Name, you must evince from the bottom of your heart Ananya Bhakti. You must drive off all other worldly thoughts from your mind. Fill the mind with thoughts of God and God alone. You must exert hard. Remain absorbed in Him. Just as you remember all the qualities of your son when you think of His name, eg: Visvanathan, you should remember the qualities of God as omnipotence, omniscience, etc. when you think of His Name.
