Excerpts from His Holiness Saint Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan's (addressed as "Pitaji" by over 50 million followers presently) discourse on April 11, 2012, at Dera Sacha Sauda, Sirsa
On chanting God's words soul becomes strong and the mann (negative aspect of mind) gets subdued; whereas negative thoughts always dominate over the man if he is not regular with recitation. Mann has the tendency to cultivate negative thoughts while the positive thoughts get originated with the help of soul only. Negative thoughts lessen the physical strength, thinking power and in turn reduce will-power. One must be regular for meditation as one is always for other daily chores of life. If it seems difficult to you, then you can go for it even while lying down because it would be multifold better rather than not reciting.
