Krishna Das over het zingen van de Naam: Kirtan / Krishna Das on Repetition of the Name

Neem Karoli Baba: By repeating the Names of God, everything is brought to completion, everything is made complete. 
Krishna Das: Things that are not helpfull to us are removed from our flow of life, and things that ere helpfull to us are brought into our flow of life.

In den beginne was het Woord

"In den beginne was het Woord en het Woord was bij God en het Woord was God. Dit was in den beginne bij God. Alle dingen zijn door het Woord geworden en zonder dit is geen ding geworden, dat geworden is. In het Woord was leven en het leven was het licht der mensen". 
(Johannes 1:1-4)

Om, Aum = scheppingsklank; het geluid, dat ontstond bij de oerbeweging, de trilling, die werd veroorzaakt doordat de Ene zich omhulde met maya, de schepping.

Dat is waarom we Kirtans en Mantra's zingen: alles is energie, energie is trilling, spreken en zang is trilling.
Zingen van de Naam brengt ons weer in contact met waar we vandaan komen, de Bron.

In the beginning was the Word

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him. Without him was not anything made that has been made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness hasn't overcome it. 
(John 1:1-4)

OM / Aum:
Hindus believe that as creation began, the divine, all-encompassing consciousness took the form of the first and original vibration manifesting as sound "OM". Before creation began it was "Shunyākāsha", the emptiness or the void. Shunyākāsha, meaning literally "no sky", is more than nothingness, because everything then existed in a latent state of potentiality. The vibration of "OM" symbolizes the manifestation of God in form ("sāguna brahman"). "OM" is the reflection of the absolute reality, it is said to be "Adi Anadi", without beginning or the end and embracing all that exists. The mantra "OM" is the name of God, the vibration of the Supreme. When taken letter by letter, A-U-M represents the divine energy (Shakti) united in its three elementary aspects: Bhrahma Shakti (creation), Vishnu Shakti (preservation) and Shiva Shakti (liberation, and/or destruction). 
(from Wiipedia)

That's why we sing Kirtan and Mantra's: everything is energy, energy is vibration, speaking, chanting and singing is vibration.
Singing of the name brings us back in contact whit where we came from: the Source.

Pictures of the various Hindu Forms and Names of the One on

Truth is One, but the wise refer to it by various names - Over de Namen
God, who resides in all as the principle of Atma, has no specific name and form. But people attribute various names and forms to Him. Some devotees say all are one. In fact, all names and forms belong to the same God. He responds to the prayers of devotees in whatever form they worship Him. It is a sign of ignorance to consider one form superior to the other.

All names and forms are based on your feelings. God has no differences whatsoever. No one can comprehend the nature of Divinity. Actually, the principle of love that exists in all beings is the principle of Divinity. Love has no specific form. Divinity transcends name and form. Love is God. Live in love. Truth is God. Truth is all-pervasive.

Understand the principle of oneness that is Divinity. The Vedas declare, Ekam sath viprah bahudha vadanti (truth is one, but the wise refer to it by various names). You may call Him by any name and form, but God is one. This principle of unity should be firmly installed in your heart.

The Vaishnavites say that Lord Vishnu is the greatest,
     while Saivites declare that Lord Siva is the greatest of all.
People may speak on the basis of their feelings,
     but in truth there is only GOD and the rest are names.
