The Exercise of the White Light

Chanting magnetises each cell of the body.

It is not a wonder, that the chant remains with one, wherever one goes. It goes on in the background.

We lay down to rest. Eyes are closed.

Chant is going on in the background.

What now?

Let it go on?

Alternatively, you could do the exercise of the light.

Imagine a pitch dark cave.

You are in the cave.

The entrance is completely blocked by a boulder.

The boulder has a crack, though, through which white light is coming in.

White?

Whiter than white.

Fairy’s-dress-white.

As white as it gets.

And then whiter.

Imagine the crack getting bigger.

More white light comes in.

White light engulfs you.

You are in the white light.

The white light is in you.

Remain in the white light.

Guide it to your aches and pains.

Fall asleep in the white light.

You will be amazed at how fast your body recuperates and then some.

What have you achieved?

Two things.

You now have something extremely constructive to do between the time that eyes are closed and the time that you fall asleep.

Also, you are simultaneously then not chanting with eyes closed.

The Thing about the Eyes

Closing one’s eyes comes naturally, especially while chanting a mantra.
 
However, one needs to watch out against this natural reflex while chanting NamMyoHoRengeKyo. 
 
NamMyoHoRengeKyo (NMHRK) seems to be about connection and spreading outwards, such being the need of the hour. 
 
Closing one’s eyes while chanting NMHRK causes vibration to accumulate in the area of the main chakra between the eyebrows. 
 
In most of us, living in today’s day and age, this main chakra is closed or party open only, due to our lifestyles, myself included.  
 
In very few is this chakra fully open, due to the maintenance of a healthy and spiritual lifestyle. 
 
Closing one’s eyes for longish periods while chanting NMHRK with a closed or only partially open main chakra between the eyebrows can cause harm to this chakra. 
 
In extreme cases, where NMHRK is chanted vigorously for long periods with closed eyes, this chakra could even explode. 
 
Harm to the main chakra between the eyebrows affects all chakras in the body, since the main chakra has a controlling effect on all of these. 
 
Ill-functioning chakras lead to ill-health and abnormal development in the body.
 
Thus it makes complete sense to chant NMHRK with eyes open.
