Kartik Inspiration 2019 Day 18 - Chant and Break Through!

By Sacinandana Swami

Chant and Break Through!

Everything becomes so easy when we are attached. An attached person doesn’t need to make an effort to focus on the object of attachment. Everything in him or her - willpower, body, intelligence - is spontaneously drawn to it.

In spiritual life we strive to become attached to Krishna. Then, our intelligence will think of Him, our body will jump out of bed in the morning and our mind will conceive various methods of coming closer to Him and engaging with Him. The power of attachment gives wings to your human gross and subtle body.

But how do we become attached to an Entity Who seems to be so far away sometimes? Is this not too demanding? Scripture recommends, “If your mind is not attached to the infallible Supreme Lord Achyuta, you should shamelessly chant the Holy Names.”

Here a few recommendations how to chant:
• alone
• without fear
• conquering sleep (what I do when I get tired is, I go into the candle position - headstand.)
• detached from material thoughts (let nothing besides the Holy Names invade your thinking; keep your mind fixed on the goal.)
• remain peaceful

We can also do this in the West. We can chant shamelessly - that means reserve time for Krishna and His Holy Name. As you do this and go into it entirely, without allowing your mind to be invaded by all the distractions, from deep inside your soul a sound will arise: ‘O, thank you, thank you, thank you, I’m finally at peace. I’m finally in the higher connection, I’m finally feeling Divine Love.’

Shamelessly chant for whatever time you can reserve and then you will break through the walls of indifference.
