Introduction to chanting the Name of God for health
1. Introduction to chanting for health
The Spiritual Science Research Foundation (SSRF) since its inception has consistently spread the message that the root causes of problems in life are due to physical, psychological and spiritual reasons. Spiritual research conducted by SSRF has shown that the spiritual root causes for problems in life, including problems of health, can contribute as much as 80% to any given issue. Problems that have their root cause in the spiritual dimension can best be overcome by spiritual practice and other spiritual healing methods. In the current era, the recommended form of basic spiritual practice is the chanting of the Name of God according to the religion of one’s birth. Chanting brings about physical, psychological and spiritual well-being.

2. Chants of the Names of Deities associated with the organs of the body
When chanting is specifically required for spiritual healing, it is important to understand an important spiritual principle. Every organ in the body is governed by a certain aspect of God known as a Deity. When one’s organs are affected by a certain ailment due to a spiritual reason, chanting the Name of a specific Deity related to that organ and illness is more likely to result in a positive outcome. The Divine consciousness of the specific Name of God strengthens the organ at a spiritual level and the person's ability to combat the disease increases.
The more specific is a spiritual healing chant for a given disease, the sooner are results seen and in a larger proportion.
3. How to maximise the healing effect of the chant
Chanting with concentration: When one chants with concentration, there is a protective sheath of sāttvik vibrations created around the diseased cells. After a certain period of time, the possibility of the disease recurring is minimised.
Chanting with spiritual emotion: When one chants with spiritual emotion, Divine energy is awakened in the organs. As a result, the cells in the organs are infused with the strength of Divine consciousness (Chaitanya). Due to this increased spiritual positivity the distressing vibrations, in the form of germs causing the disease, are destroyed and the cells of that particular organ are re-energised.
Chanting with prayer: The effectiveness of chanting is increased manifold when prayers are said intermittently while repeating the Name of God. In fact only when one prays intensely with spiritual emotion, are the vibrations of that particular Deity Principle in the Universe attracted towards the person. The Divine vibrations saturate the person’s consciousness, thereby destroying the distressing vibrations of the disease. Chanting, without prayers filled with spiritual emotion, is not qualitative, but merely quantitative and of lesser benefit to the patient.
