There is reason why saints constantly advise devotees to chant the Lord’s names. We do not know when adversity will strike and we will be compelled to draw on our spiritual strength. Devotees who constantly remember the Lord also find the strength to face life’s challenges. A worldly person remembers the Lord at the eleventh hour when all other options have been exhausted. This is a good moment because for many people this is the point when they turn to God. However, it is even better to constantly chant God’s names. Why wait for the eleventh hour.
Devi Maa says, “Chant the names of Shri Hari before you begin any work.”
