Back of the Book

“There is space between the role and the person. But it is not spatial. Role playing without losing self-awareness is possible through sadhana backed by knowledge. Japa is the sadhana.”


About the book

Japa is the repetition of a word or short sentence during meditation. The letter ja stands for that which puts an end to the cycle of birth and death and the letter pa stands for that which removes or destroys all impurities and obstructions. Therefore, japa is an indirect means for liberation, moksa. By destroying the varieties of obstructions to knowledge, japa paves the way for liberation. Japa, then, is more than a mere discipline or technique.

These two talks will give one an understanding of the nature and logic of japa and the way it works. With this understanding one would be able to do japa with conviction and handle it properly.
