Chanting explained by Shri Datta Swami

  • Q. I have been chanting Datta mantra and Datta bhajans in the recent past very vigorously and need some advice for the direction in life.

    A. There is nothing like a specific mantra of God. Any line as prose or poem or song that attracts your mind is called as mantra. You need not chant a specific line as mantra even if it is not attracting your mind. Such forcible chanting is useless. The attraction towards that line should be natural and such attraction should be the force to make you chant that mantra. Similarly, bhajans, which are songs on God. There also, the natural attraction is essential. The lack of natural attraction is non-devotion.

    What is the force acting in you that makes you chant the mantra or sing bhajans even though the natural attraction is absent? That force is the link between God and worldly benefits. You think that God will favour you by such forced efforts. First, you should cut the link between God and worldly benefits. Such devotion is not real and pure. It is like the business of exchange between the prayers and worldly benefits. It is also like the love of a prostitute to extract the concrete money from a person by expressing sweet words.

    God hates such impure devotion. There is no practical sacrifice to God, which is the practical devotion standing as a proof for your real devotion. All your devotion is only theoretical and you cannot practically expect any fruit.

    Q. I am interested in constant chanting of Sri Guru Dattatreya & wish to know if Datta loka can be created for Datta devotees.

    A. You can read the answer given to the first question mentioned above. Datta means a specific human being (form of God), who is radiating the spiritual knowledge in the world to give correct direction to the spiritual aspirants. Wherever He stays, that is Datta Loka. There is also an upper world called Datta Loka in which Datta is in an energetic body preaching the spiritual knowledge to the departed souls from this earth existing in the energetic bodies and also to angels, the souls in energetic bodies. The angels stay in the upper world permanently and the departed souls have to return after some time.

    For you, Datta is always on the earth and Datta Loka exists always here itself. Datta Loka does not mean only the upper world, which can be attained by you after leaving this materialistic body and entering an energetic body. There is no difference between the Datta Lokas existing on the earth and above the sky, since there is no difference between the energetic form of Datta in the upper world and the materialistic form of Datta on this earth.

    Hence, no delay is necessary to reach Datta Loka or abode of Datta. The aspirant of Datta Loka should join the service of Datta to propagate His spiritual knowledge and not to lead a retired life. Beware of this point.
