He who utters the Name of God while walking
gets the merit of a sacrifice at every step.
His body becomes a place of pilgrimage.
He who repeats God's name while working
always finds perfect peace.
He who utters the Name of God while eating
gets the merit of a fast
even though he has taken his meals.
Even if one were to give in charity
the whole earth encircled by the seas
it would not equal the merit of repeating the Name.
By the Power of the Name
one will know what cannot be known.
One will see what cannot be seen.
One will meet what cannot be met.
Incalculable is the gain that comes
from repeating the Name of God.
