In this Do This Today video, Nayaswami Dharmadas shares two secrets of chanting:
1. You don’t have to be a musician to do it! You don’t even have to open your mouth or be able to hold a tune! Singing to God is just letting the spiritual vibrations of a chant percolate through your inward consciousness to create deep attunement with God’s presence. It is another way to “Pray without ceasing,” using music.
2. “Chanting is half the battle” because we awaken the natural love of the heart through that inward call. And we can use the devotion of Paramhansa Yogananda and Swami Kriyananda to go through the “open door” of each of their spiritualized chants.
