Answer by Swami Gaurangapada:




The very uttering of the Nityananda and Gauranga Mantrarajas is the greatestoffenseless Yoga of Kali Yuga and nothing more is required since chanting isindependent of the time, place, circumstances or even the very method with whichwe perform the chanting. Thus there is no difference between Gauranga Japa andGauranga Kriya.



The breath synchronization or breath awareness pranayama of Gauranga Kriyahelps the flickering mind to concentrate or focus on the sound vibration ofNityananda and Gauranga Mantrarajas. The Hari Bhakti Vilasa states thatpranayama does assist japa.



But this concentration can be achieved in another way also which is to loudlyvibrate the Nityananda and Gauranga Mantrarajas. The loud vibration of theMantrarajas subdues the rambling mind. Loud chanting should be accompanied bymeditation on the Divine Forms of Their Lordships Nityananda-Gauranga (by seeinga Picture, Photo or Deity) or Their Pastimes. This is way to deep enter into theunlimited transcendental meanings of Nityananda and Gauranga Mantrarajas whilechanting.



Please let us know if you have more queries. We are always here to help you.We greatly appreciate your determination to chant inspite of your chronic bodilyproblems and we pray to the Lord that your taste in chanting should alwaysincrease.




Yoursin service, Swami Gaurangapada.
