After Tulasi Puja, a nice set of 16 rounds or more of quality Japa. This means articulate pronunciation of the holy names for the pleasure of the Divine Couple. Quality Japa means when you don’t want to stop. The Acaryas of our line encourages us to chant 64 rounds, we should always be hankering to do so. Srila Prabhupada wanted the devotees to chant 64 rounds, but they simply would not do it.
As your service attitude increases, or your desire to want to please the Divine Couple becomes more and more important to you, you will find more opportunity to increase.
For example; to get up earlier, like getting up at 2:30am and getting in 16 rounds before Mangala Arati. Then 16 during the Japa period. That gives you 32 rounds before daylight. Then throughout the day, just keep the hand in the bead bag and casually chant when you’re not doing any thing else. By the end of the day, 64 rounds will be completed, or close to it!
