Title: Chanting the Holy Names fast User: Swami Gaurangapada Date: 2007-03-12 06:32:33
Hello dear Swami Gaurangapada,
Here is me again with another question, there are some doubts in my mind and im assured that you can awnser me.
Gaurangapada, i have a little problem with time, so im thinking about chanting the Holy Names fast, the faster i can to economize time. Is there any problem? I saw you at the chat saying that chanting refers to the spiritual world. But, a fast chanting can loose the meaning dont it?
Thank you very much Swami Gaurangapada. - Gui
Answer by Swami Gaurangapada:
Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! In the beginning, you have to concentrate on chanting and hearing the sound vibration of the syllables of the Holy Names and gradually try to remember the form of the Lord with the chanting. Once your remembrance of the Lord's divine attributes increases while chanting, the speed can automatically increase without compromising on the quality of the chanting i.e. nama smarana.
