- the chanting of a mantra
- has been used in India from time immemorial to help one
become attuned with the planets
and their ruling deities. This audiocassette contains the
mantras associated with the Sun and the Moon, each repeated
108 times. To practice japa with this tape, all you need to
do is sit silently, after bathing, in a place that is calm
and clean. You can chant with the tape and be confident that
the pronunciation and number of repetitions is correct. By
devoting a half hour every day to this practice, you can reap
all the benefits of japa.
For maximum benefit, chant the japa of the planets whose
influence on your psyche and destiny is greatest. The method
for determining those planets is discussed in detail in Harish
Johari's book Numerology.
Although this tape, like its companion tapes containing the
mantras for the other planets, may be used on its own, it
is ideally used as an adjunct to that book. More information
on japa can be found in Johari's books Tools
for Tantra and The
Healing Power of Gemstones.
The planet related to the psychic number should be befriended,
and if the planet associated with the destiny number is not
showing its full influence after you have passed the age of
thirty-five, you should do the japa of that planet as well.
In addition, you may do japa for any planet with which you
wish to be in greater harmony.
It is said that in the Kali Yuga, the current age of dissolution,
japa is the only method for realization of the divine within
us. Japa, especially for the Sun, Moon, and planets, is a
sure and time-tested method of creating calmness and hope
and bringing peace and prosperity to your home.
