BENEFITS OF JAPA - By Swami Sivananda
When you repeat the Mantra, have Satvik Bhava or Shuddha Bhava (right mental attitude, Satvic feeling). The Bhava comes slowly when the purification process goes on. Even mere mechanical repetition has very great effect. The vibration in the mind set up by the repetition purifies the Chitta and brings Chitta Shuddhi (purification of the mind).
If the Mantra is repeated for 6 hours daily, the heart will be purified quickly, you can feel the purity. You must have great faith in your Guru Mantra.
