Good Questions In The Japa Room

We had a very successful opening of the Japa Room yesterday….at one stage 26 devotees were in attendance and many good questions and comments were made in the chat room. One very good question was about the time when we should chant – someone asked is it OK to make up our rounds the next day if we had a busy day?….and another about chanting half our Japa quota before going to work and chanting the rest when returning home.

It got me thinking about the importance of rising as early as possible and chanting as many rounds a possible before doing anything else. Sometimes we are in a very tight schedule, but within that schedule we should make Japa our number one priority in the morning.
Here is a nice quote from Srila Prabhupada that I used in the Japa Room about this subject.

Chanting japa should be done early in the morning with full concentration preferably during the Brahma Muhurta time. Concentrate fully on the sound vibration of the mantra, pronouncing each name distinctly and gradually your speed in chanting will increase naturally. Do not worry so much about chanting fast, most important is the hearing.
