Should one come up to the level of chanting 16 rounds gradually so that we can sustain it or as quickly as possible?
From: Alpana Patel
I have recently attended the DYS course and now i plan to attend the next courses. During the course they mentioned that chanting 16 rounds is the ideal and one must come to that point as quickly as possible. What about the Quality of chanting? Is it secondary to Quantity.
I ask this because i know some friends who started chanting 16 rounds after attending some of these courses but later they realized it was very difficult to keep it up due to work and family pressures. Now they have reduced to one or two rounds and some of them have stopped chanting due to frustration.
Just like everything in life, there is no short-cut and we must gradually come to 16 rounds. This is what i feel.
