It’s a Powerful Seed
In this age, the simplest and best practice is mantra repetition. It is very simple, but at the same time very powerful—more powerful than any other practice. Your body may not even be fit to practice all the Hatha Yoga postures or to do rigorous penance. You may not have a lot of money to go on pilgrimages. You may not have a big altar or go to church every Sunday, but you can always repeat a mantra. Wherever you are, whatever you do, whether you are rich or poor, it doesn’t matter. Repeating the mantra is like cultivating a seed. It’s a powerful seed that, once planted, will slowly take root and grow in you. In the beginning you have to nurture it carefully and regularly. Then it will grow into a beautiful, big, divine tree and bring forth much fruit. Certainly the whole world will enjoy that fruit.
