Q & A on Spiritual Life & Sadhana from “May I Answer That?”- by
Holy Master Sri Swami Sivanandaji  Maharaj.

What is the difference between Japa and meditation?

Japa is silent repetition of the Name of the Lord. Meditation is
the constant flow of one idea of God. When you repeat Om Namo
Narayanaya, it is Japa of the Vishnu Mantra. When you think of the
conch, disc, mace and lotus flower in the hands of Vishnu, His
ear-rings, the crown on His head, His yellow silken Pitambar,
etc., it is meditation. When you think of the attributes of God
such as omniscience, omnipotence, etc., it is also meditation.
An Incidence From H. H. Sri Swami Chidanandaji Maharaj's Life
During one of the Sadhana Saptah, Swamiji was found a bit tired
and yawning all the time. We inquired about his health from his
attendant Brahmachari. We learnt from him that Swamiji was on fast
for the last three days and did not even drink water.

Guru-Purnima, Sadhana-Saptah and holy Aradhana festival are very
busy days for the inmates. Hence the inmates had forgotten to
water the plants.

Swamiji noted that plants were drying out and taught us a lesson
by fasting. He said, "You bring all these plants from around the
world and plant them in front of my residence. Naturally they are
guests of the Ashram. Now without feeding (watering) them how can
I, the host, eat or drink? Atithi Devo Bhava (The guest is God).
