Akhanda Nama Japa

Akhanda-nama-japa is chanting one mantra repeatedly for a length of time. Akhanda means undisturbed or uninterrupted by anything else. You choose one thing and then you maintain that same thing. Some people say that repetition is mechanical. It all depends on what you repeat, and how. Monotony comes only when you want a change.
