The First Regulative Principle



This week's Japa Room brought some nice realizations from those attending – one devotee mentioned when their chanting is becoming hard and his mind is becoming strong and he can't concentrate on the sound….then he increases the volume of his voice and thus he is able to concentrate again and forget the mind.

It reminded me of a nice quote from Srila Prabhupada on this subject.

The first regulative principle is that one must chant the Hare Krsna maha−mantra loudly enough so that he can hear himself, and one must vow to chant a fixed number of rounds. Sri Caitanya caritamrta Antya−lila 11.24
