The importance and power of the habit of devotional chanting cannot be overestimated. To banish inertia, indifference, lack of devotion, sad moods, blind attachments, and a host of other enemies of spiritual enlightenment, “chanting is half the battle,” said the great guru, Yoganandaji. Chanting opens for the devotee a way through which the joyous presence of God can be felt.
