This is usually done mentally, as a mental repetition of a Name of God done during meditation, this practice is done during available moments throughout the day and night as a way to remember God all the time. Says Sant Tukarama:"Such is God’s Namethat it heals the disease of the world.Whosoever repeats the Lord’s Namewhile engaged in earthly duties,remains ever in a blissful state of divine communion.One absorbed in the Lord’s Name, O Tuka,has truly attained liberation while living."This spiritual exercise of repeating God's Name helps to uplift our day, to bring some of the heaven and bliss of meditation into our down-to-earth daily experience, and is a way to remember in a world of forgetfulness, to remain awake in a world of spiritual slumber, to abide in Truth, no longer dominated by the forces of illusion. Be who you really are wherever you go!
