We have songs and we have smiles; that is the beauty of 3HO. We have many, many songs and we have very, very, very many smiles. We have all the tools not to be fools but still sometimes we mess up.

Japa (chanting) is when you sit and meditate on a mantra and you spend days and days and days in constant repetition of God’s name and God progressively calms the ego. The more mild the ego is, the more your finite Infinity starts seeing the Infinite Infinity. First you do things to be secure on Earth. Then you start seeing things beyond Earth, and what is beyond Earth is called higher consciousness…When you start seeing that, you become humble, because when you see that kind of greatness you become humble. When you see the creativity of the Creator and you compare it with yourself as a creature, you start seeing the vastness, the happiness. That is how the consciousness becomes happy. Chanting the japa is for this. Even the politicians know something about chanting to create vibrations, to create a magnetic field of energy. We know how to do it. Unconsciously we do it. Meditation in japa is a conscious effect of creating that huge magnetic ether energy to have the grasp of the Infinity.
