Proper Pronounciation Is Important

Today I read that we should pronounce the word "Rama" as it is spelt and not "Ram". This got me thinking about how important it is to clearly repeat the words of the Hare Krsna mantra. Then I started to chant Rama properly and it had the effect of making me concentrate alot more on the sound and I could really relish the Holy names and absorb myself more and more.

Please try this, to pronounce each word very carefully and to hear with great concentration.

It Will Be Good Every Day

Why is it a struggle on some days to concentrate while on other days it is easier This is the very definition of unsteadiness. When you become steady, it will be good every day. You can make advancement in japa when you always look forward to doing it, feel pleasure when you do it, and do it with steady consciousness. Another measure is that you will feel less material desires. That symptom is more important than exactly how much bliss you feel while fingering the beads.
