Japa is the practice of repeating mantras (___) times using the mala beads to keep count.

Vedic astrology uses mantras to appease the negative effects of difficult planetary transits. Some of these mantras need to be repeated 10,000’s of times!  That should keep one out of trouble for a while.

Hmmm. How are your planets today?

 

Om shanti, peace.
