Dr. Jayant Balaji Athavala: the very first Holy text I wrote in 1987 was cyclostyled that too was in a scientific language where the subjects were explained with the help of charts comparative studies percentages etc. which are normally not found in text on spirituality. Later too my technique of writing remained the same was this because I am a student of science? Or did god get it done through me to suit the present kaliyug?

Preface

Our Sadguru H.H. Bhaktaraj Maharaj has explained the importance of the Lord’s Name though His bhajans (devotional songs). A few translation lines from His bhajans are give here.

O God! Your name alone is the basis of all scriptures.

Your Principal is beyond the description given in the Veds. (The most sacred Hindu scriptures, directly by God.)

It is difficult to follow Dharma (Righteousness) in Kaliyug (the current era). However, the Lord’s Name can take us beyond the vast ocean of life and death.

Several Saints like Saint Tukaram, Brahmachaitanya Gondavlekar Maharaj and Saint Kabir also explained the importance of chanting the Lord’s Name. Even so, many people have doubts about how one can cross the vast ocean of Maya (The Great illusion) with the help of a small boat of chanting the Lord’s Name and have God-realisation. Without Chanting, we cannot get the spiritual experience of God; at the same time, we cannot start chanting the concept intellectually. Because of this confusion, even without chanting many ‘conclude is useless’.

We have compiled this Holy text with the purpose of clarifying all doubts about chanting and highlighting the importance of the Lord’s name. We have explained several facts like, even the Veds having originated from the Lord’s Name, that the Lord’s Name is the saviour of both the virtuous as well as the sinner, the Lord’s Name is essential for the completion of any spiritual practice, it is essential even for the seeker who has been liberated from the cycle of life and death etc. After reading this Holy text, the faith in the Lord’s Name will definitely increase.

Chanting helps in alleviating physical and psychological ailments, increasing concentration, reducing sorrow, nullifying all sins and is useful after death. As listed above, many other benefits of chanting at various levels are narrated throughout the text. There are several paths of spiritual practice like Karmayog 9Path of Action), Bhaktiyog (Path of Devotion) etc. Dhyanyog (Path of Meditation), Dnyanyog (Path of Knowledge) etc. This Holy text also explains how those living a worldly life can adopt the Path of Chanting which is simple, with no restrictions of time and place and which can constantly keep us in communion with God. Thus, the chanting the Lord’s Name is the only path in which the spiritual practice can continue uninterrupted. From all the above it will be evident why it is important for all of us to follow the Path of Chanting.

It is our prayer at Guru’s feet that every reader understands the importance to start the spiritual practice of chanting the Lord’s name.
