V.T.N.: What is the meaning of feeling (bhava) when one does japa of a mantra ?

Babaji: He who repeats a mantra should entertain either the attitude of a servant (dasya bhava), or the attitude of a disciple (shishya bhava), or the attitude of a son, a child (putra bhava) while doing japa, he can also have the feeling of a friend (mitra bhava), an off-spring or of a husband, in regard to the Lord! He should also have the feeling or mental attitude that the Lord is seated in his heart, that sattva or purity is flowing to him from the Lord, that the mantra is purifying his heart, destroying desires, cravings and evil thoughts when he is doing his japa.

V.T.N.: But Babaji....

Babaji: No more buts. Enough for this book. If people followed what is contained in this , then they would be living really in a land of milk and honey. AUM Shanti Shanti Shanti.
