Japa practices and experiences -

I am hesitant to publish this on the open forum, and do it here now even though I think some encouragement for experimentation could be helpfull for the many practitioners reading the open forums. I am hesitating because I wish to observe first how my awareness is affected by speaking/writing about my limited experiences in japa on this limited forum for more mature practitioners.

Thank you Nabadip for this thread. I have never been in the 16 rounds project - it helps me to understand where you and others have come from. I was hoping for this type of thread to come about - I see that I was expecting many to understand where I was comming from in the previous threads.

You have beautifully described the line of doing 'Just Mantra' and how that leads, eventualy to full lila realization (Krsna be praisesd!).

Last thing is that I do Nitai-Gour/Radhay Shyam mantra when I am not doing Japa and it truley dances on my tougue. It is really rich, wonderful - exquisite!

Another aspect I can see, a conclusion if you like, is that really in bhakti experience is the beginning, and elucidation the consequence. we however tend to dress the horse the other way round, to take or expect first instruction and then expect to get experience, but experience being veiled by all the technical knowlege involved.
