Welcome to 21 days chanting session. This session is for your benefit. Just a little preparation from your side will maximize the benefit of this session. Can we make sure:
1. we are in a quiet place. We are sitting very comfortably with a stable body.
2. we are going to keep our mind 100% with chanting for the purification.
Alright! Today is the 20th day of transformation. The chanting theme for today is Anand. All humans in their own ways are leading life in the chase of happiness called Anand. There are two paths to happiness – Prey and Shrey. Prey is the result of the association with Prakriti and in Shrey it is the union of oneconsciousness with another. We have sensory organs, mind, intellect, Chitta, ego and we have been sufficiently utilizing them to gain comfort and joy in life. However, we still feel incomplete. There is one more very vital element in this human body which promises to provide infinitely greater joy in life. Life is a gift of God, to search and attain everlasting happiness (i.e. Shreyanand). Let us begin the purification session with the swarved chanting.

Interacting with physical organs gives materialistic pleasures also known as preyanand (प्रेयानंद). When the soul attains almighty, it experiences eternal happiness, the happiness that never ends. In spirituality, eternal happiness is referred to as shreyanand (श्रेयानंद). Materialistic pleasures do not last long. It ultimately leads to sorrow. True eternal happiness is experienced by the soul without physical organs. shreyanand (श्रेयानंद) remains constant and does not change with time.
These 21 days of chanting therapy is dedicated to the birth anniversary celebration of his holiness Sant Pravar Sri Vigyandeo ji Maharaj- The divine message for today is –“ Ego has two companions- Hate and Envy”
The Ego never comes alone. It brings in 2 other demerits along with it – 1. Hate and 2. Envy. Together these negative virtues make our life full of suffering. Therefore, one needs to constantly introspect to make sure ego never rises within. The best way to do away with this negative virtue is to keep ourselves indulge in selfless service. Selfless service is a very effective tool to get rid of ego within us and be more humble and compassionate towards others.
