Chanting the Holy Names 1
Thank You Aum. Thank You Ra. Thank You Gye Nyame.
Thank You Aum. Thank You Ra. Thank You Gayatri.

ignorant and arrogant to attempt to confine or limit You, the
Source of all and the Witness of Infinity, to names of
our mundane concoction. Thank You for the association of
Your Holy Names. This spiritual practice is cleansing our
consciousness of contamination.
While cleaning and quieting our consciousness, Your Holy
Name is blessing us with Your association. This helps us in
our efforts to experience the ultimate goal of our life, union
with You. Thank You for showing us the benefits of being
thankful and chanting Your Holy Names.
The more our consciousness is purified by always chanting

You for helping us to see that names that help us remember
You and help to free us from Maya are the names that we
The more we think of You and settle into Your Eternal Peace,
the greater is our purification and control of our mind and
senses. Thank You for the ability to glorify You in our
humble way, thus increasing our understanding and
experience of Your Peace.
Who are we? Who would we think we are to name You
and then declare that our particular name is the only name
You will respond to? Thank You for revealing to us the
importance of chanting Your Holy Names.
