Reciting Bani

Postby pssekhon » Sun Jan 22, 2012 7:08 pm

Why recite bani instead of simply the name of God? How does placing thoughts on God redeem us? God is selfless but why does God require us to constantly recite One’s name?

SSA,

I think of it as follows with regard to your 3 questions:

1. Reciting Bani conditions our mind to focus on the name of God.
2. Placing thoughts on God helps us realize our Soul.
3. God doesn't require us to recite his name, our Soul requires it, so it can realize God.

I hope that helped.

I think number 3 says it all. Thank you for the reply. I found it very helpful and insightful! :)
