I am a soldier in the US Army and thought you all might get a laugh at what happened the other day. We had to do a 6 mile run for fitness. It's the custom to sing during these runs to build soldier cohesion. So they asked me to sing. I agreed, so we were running down the street, when the idea popped in my head to get them to chant.
Now this wasn't 6 or 7 people, it was a total of 600 soldiers. And they were into it, for 3 miles they chanted the Maha Mantra as loud as they could and were really into it.
Amazing what the power of the Holy Name can do!
