How does someone considered as a living dead if not chanting the names of God?

  • Do you want to identify which scripture says Without chanting the names of the God, we are all living dead? or why does scriptures say so? Currently, your question's title and body are not matching. – Triyugi Narayan Mani Jan 31 '18 at 5:26
  • I need both, scripture and how it works, @TriyugiNarayanMani – Kailash Chandra Polai Jan 31 '18 at 6:16
  • @KailashChandraPolai It will better if you add where you read this or source for this information. – The Destroyer Jan 31 '18 at 7:02
  • i heard it from a pundit staying near to me. so i do not have source @TheDestroyer, but he was telling it is written in Vedas as well as in Gita. – Kailash Chandra Polai Jan 31 '18 at 8:06

Never to deny spirit(brahman) because the spirit is atman.

Brahman was this before; therefore it knew even the Ātma (soul, himself). I am Brahman, therefore it became all. And whoever among the gods had this enlightenment, also became That. It is the same with the sages, the same with men. Whoever knows the self as “I am Brahman,” becomes all this universe. Even the gods cannot prevail against him, for he becomes their Ātma. Now, if a man worships another god, thinking: “He is one and I am another,” he does not know. He is like an animal to the gods. As many animals serve a man, so does each man serve the gods. Even if one animal is taken away, it causes anguish; how much more so when many are taken away? Therefore it is not pleasing to the gods that men should know this.

— Brihadaranyaka Upanishad 1.4.10


He who knows the Brahman as non- existing, becomes himself non-existing. He who knows the Brahman as existing, him we know himself as existing.' The embodied Self of this (bliss) is the same as that of the former (understanding).

Taittrayi upnishad book 2.6

so, there i think is no restriction of chanting name of god but it is said to read vedas which is itself great.
