Radhanath Swami on Putting Our Heart in Chanting

The Lord lives not on our tongue, but in our hearts. Mere physical sound vibrations are not very effective alone. But when we chant from our hearts, the Lord manifests Himself from the heart, and into the sound of His name. When such sound of the holy names, vibrated by our tongues, enters into the atmosphere, it purifies all of creation.

  8. Thanks for this blog. I chant holy names of God, but most of the times it seems mechanical, hope I can chant some times with heart & sincerity.

  9. As I begin to hear these wonderful messages of HH Radhanath Swami, I begin to see how personal is this process of bhakti and how deep are the activities of bhakti, although appearing very simple.

  19. Chanting means keeping everything aside and concentrating on the Holyname only. Radhanath Swami is saying here that if we simply do that, we will soon see how Lord manifests withing our heart.
