Is it true that if one does the namasmarana 13 crore times then he gets the darshana of supreme lord?

While doing namasmarana with mouth if another wordly thoughts comes in our mind then does that namasmarana gets counted?

Eg. At first lets say while ironing my clothes i starts doing namasmarana , For first 50 times i does it with full attention then after that for next 100 chants , different thoughts came in my mind , but my mouth is continuosly doing japa, then does that next 100 chants are usefull or do they gets counted?

    SUGGESTION Yes, yes everything counts! God loves you as you are. Don't have any expectations while doing Sadhana. Simply say to the Lord before starting: "Oh God Lord, I am offering all that I see, hear, touch, smell, eat, speak, do, and even think to Thy Lotus Feet!" and end the sadhana day with "Oh God Lord, I offer all that I have done, thought and spoke, good as well as bad, at Thy Lotus Feet. I am Thy child." Sadhana is done to purify the Mind and realize the True Self. Eventually you will see that the power of your Sadhana takes You to Your Self. This is also Darshana. :) All the best! – Sai Oct 5 '15 at 3:13
  • At start our attention do remains on it... but after some time we realize that its just going mechanical chant and from mouth we are taking god's holy name but thinking of something else in mind. @Sai – C Sharper Oct 6 '15 at 6:14

    yes the mechanical chant will eventually purify all your senses and finally that mechanical chant will probe deeper and deeper into your consciousness. There is something called conscious mind. When you chant consciously you're in that layer. As you keep going deeper, you reach the subconscious mind, this is the mechanical chanting. After that you go deeper, you reach the Super Consciousness, or God. That is where you will experience yourself as you are. What you think as your consciousness, is actually your ego consciousness, not your real consciousness. All the best. – Sai Oct 6 '15 at 13:48

    Yes it is natural and definitely that is the case where we start chanting consciously and then it becomes an unconscious action. However with time the changes will be visible. Nothing comes immediately in life, and this includes liberation. All the best – Sai Oct 7 '15 at 14:34

    Yes absolutely! The Lord Loves any form of devotion that is offered to Him. During the Bhagavatam Prahlad ji mentions the nine types of bhakti to God: listening (Shravanam), singing (kirtanam), Vishnu smaranam (thinking of God), vandanam (worshipping), pada sevanam (serving the lotus feet of Lord), archanam (admiring beauty of the Lord through poojas, archanas), dasyam (serving the Lord), sakhyam (friendship to God) and atma nivedanam (complete self surrender) are all coming under different types of bhakti.
