Let's Chant

     
Many people chant prayers any mantra given by our Guru. The simple logic behind this is to please the dear lord. We chant for mercy, we chant for salvation, we chant for peace of mind.  We chant to attend the love supreme godhead. Everyone has his own reasons for chanting. Chanting is very easy devotional service one can offer to God. 

     Chanting is the devotional service which leads us to happiness. Many Vedic kinds of literature state that chanting is the purest devotional service one can offer in the Kali-yuga. In Srimad Bhagavatam, it is given that chanting the holy name only for once with modesty, can attain the love of Godhead. Chanting can convert one cruel, sadist into a spiritual being. To read the full story regarding how chanting with consistency can change your life click here.

       All the Vedas state that chanting is the foremost devotional service. In other yugas, people were having a long life like really long life, high patience and and purest form of modesty, and true determined love towards the lord. They used to chant for ages with no food, no water just embracing oneself towards the devotion for God. This is not possible in Kali-Yuga. Life span is negligible compared to other Yugas. People are not modest enough. Selfish and sadist nature is the hidden gem of every person. So Vedas have given you the option to chant for few times(atleast once) in day but regularly. 

Practice Makes A Man Perfect
        I think everyone here is familiar with this saying, let's understand it in a different spiritual way. You may have some questions like what is the connection of this with spirituality. Let me explain...
      It is given in Bhagavad Gita that at the time of death, consciousness developed by a living being, carries him to his next body. Also, one who chants the name of Supreme Lord at the time of death or even one who thinks about the Supreme Lord attains the eternal abode. I know it sounds easy but trusts me it's not. At the time of death, immense pain, sorrow, and mixed feeling, thousands of thoughts floating in your mind it's not easy to chant Holy name.
    You may have seen many monks, sadhus and many other people with bead bag, chanting and praying. Guru Shisha Parampara says that one should chant a total of 16 rounds of prayer bead(Jaap Mala), more than that is absolutely fine. Yes, their only motive is to make chanting, a habit. Many Initiated monks are so habitual to that their exclaimed reactions also include holy name. They believe that making it a habit will help them at the time of death. So that at the time of death holy name automatically strikes into one's mind. 
     There are many reasons, Chanting for mercy, satisfaction, to please god, peace of mind, for salvation, some of them chant for no good reason they just chant. 
    Let's take a challenge. Let's chant any prayer you like for 11 times a day for a month. Notice the change. I dont know whether it will help or not but their is no harm for sure. Comment down below if you notice any change. Lets keep this blog short and sweet and to the point. This is what  I think, you may disagree but I write what I observe.

Everything you need to know about Overthinking!

First you assume somethinng then you overthink, then you get worried about non-existing problem, then you again overthink about the solutionEverything starts with assumptions. For no reason at all we assume something!
Why this assumption? (Phase-1) Ever thought about that? No, because we don't think so deeply about the existing problems. We love to create more problems assuming irrelevant things. We think about the useless things which will generate stress! Agree on it or not but yes unknowingly we enjoy stressful situations. And when everything is going fine we tend to find stress. Everyone is living in stressful situations, those who cannot manage it properly fail miserably. Stress is an important factor for growth, only and only if it is managed properly. For example, a marathon runner should stress his lungs if he wants to run. If he is not stressing them up to the mark we will not complete the race. Also if he is overstressing his lungs, eventually he will fail. So to complete…

Go and Inquire

The human being is different from every other living being. Intelligence is what makes humans differ from other living beings. Intelligence to choose between what is right and what is wrong. Also, intelligence to think out of the box.         It important for a human being to control his mind. Not to act like a cat and dogs. That is a human being. He should be inquisitive. Why the things around me are happening and he should learn from it. If he does not inquire or if he does not take education, then what is the difference between him and the dog. He has got the opportunity of human life he should use it wisely by gaining useful knowledge and be inquisitive. he should avoid keeping himself in dog status. Not to use this human birth simply for eating, sleeping, sex life and defending. Dog's barking disturbs people, the dog does not inquire about how to control barking, but in our case, we can inquire. Therefore the Vedic injunction is 'Go and Inquire'. We shoul…

7 Minutes Rule for 3 weeks for being consistent and avoid give up!

Hold on! Why 7 minutes? Because,  nearly 0.5% of 24 hours is 7 minutes, and 0.5% of your day can easily be spared for your betterment and growth. 
Lack of consistency is the general problem for everybody. Firstly, I would suggest you to, go through the previous blog Consistency Outplays Talent. When you decide to be consistent in a particular thing, and due to some reasons you fail to continue, then try this 7 Minutes Rule, because why not. 
Task-A = The task which you are regularly doing by default.  Task-B = Task with which you want to be consistent.Take any random target for practice. Anything you are actually doing regularly, like if you are fond of reading regularly then take 'read a book' for 7 minutes challenge or if you play PC like an addict then take 'playing your favourite game on PC' for 7 minutes challenge, anything for just 7 minutes daily, for 3 weeks. Name this as Task-A.
That is, you are only using 147minutes out of your 30,240 minutes (3 weeks)  for your…
