|| < : NAMES OF GOD : > ||

Questioner : Are all mantras of equal value ?

SWAMIJI : Yes , correct . All the names are finally names of GOD and , therefore , if you have faith that this name is really the name of GOD , it will take you to GOD .

Questioner : Is there any power in the mantra , or is it the concept of the mind that is the power ?

SWAMIJI : A mantra has got its own power . Your conception also adds to it , but it has a power by itself .

The very words of the mantra are arranged in such a way that they generate a kind of power when they are chanted .

A chemical action takes place when the mantra is chanted . The words act and react to produce a force .

That is why even by mantra chanting itself you can realise GOD , and you need not think of chakras . You can completely forget them .

Mantras will do the work of other yogas as well .

If you are convinced that this mantra is sufficient for you , you need not do any hatha yoga .

That mantra will take care of you .
It is enough . It is a complete yoga by itself .
