    That is a quote from Papa Ramdas, I think.

    Please vijisesh. I agree with you. We should have a discussion about Godmen and Hinduism. But not here. Papa Ramdas, the Sage of Kanhangad was a Great Soul and not one of those Godmen.

    Japa Yoga

    Repetition of any Mantra or Name of the Lord is known as Japa. Japa is an important Anga of Yoga. It is a spiritual food for the hungry soul. Japa is the rod in the hand of the blind Sadhakas (aspirants) to plod on the road to Realization. Japa is the philosopher's stone or divine elixir that makes one God-like. In this iron age, practice of Japa alone can give eternal Peace, Bliss and Immortality.
    Types of Japa
    1. Manasika Japa - Mental repetition.
    2. Vaikhari Japa - Verbal or loud repetition.
    3. Upamshu Japa.- Repetition in a whisper or humming.
    4. Likhita Japa - Writing down daily in a notebook.

    In most Brahmin families there is a tradition of Likhita Japa. I remember the days when all of us had individual notebooks where we wrote down Sri Rama Jayam or Om Namah Sivayah. The notebooks were all collected later and kept by my mother. When I constructed my new house, they were all (a huge number) buried under the flooring of that place in my Puja Room where the Vigrahas are placed.

    I got this idea from the Swamiji in Udipi Krishna temple (Pejawar Math, I think. I am not sure) who gave us a copy of the Bhagavd Gita, told us to copy the slokas in a notebook and send it to him. He used these notebooks as foundation for the Mandapa he was constructing.

    If you want to learn about Japa, its benefits and the detailed instructions about the procedure, please visit Swami Sivananda's

    http://www.dlshq.org/teachings/japayoga.htm

    The quotes and information given here are all from Swamiji's teachings.

    The power of nama japam

    Sri Nacchinarkiniyan,

    Apropos your brief write-up on nama japam, please permit me to say that
    Sri Anna KrishnaPremi, Sri Muralidhara Swamigal and Sri Jayakrishna dikshitar
    are now popularising nama japam. We can have further details from their
    websites.
    Sir, there is an interesting anecdote narrated by N.R.Krishnamurthy Iyer of
    Madurai about chanting of "RamRam". In short , while he was in Sri
    Ramanashram, he came across the book ' Yoga Vasistha ', wherein it is said
    that " Between two thoughts there is an interval of 'No thought'. That
    interval is the Self, the Atman. It is Pure Awareness only ". The rest of
    the story can be had from the following link sir :

    http://www.realization.org/page/doc1/doc109a.htm

    Sir, you are a great scholar and I feel I am holding a candle before Sun.
